Gen 7: Won't put you to Cryogen

I’ll be honest in saying that I don’t have a lot of experience with many types of campaign games. I’ve played a few that I really like and some that I am happy to see slowly gathering dust on the shelf for a little while…

Dating in the Apocalypse: Sarah the One: Meet the Apocalypse's Most Eligible Bachelor

It may sound cliché, but Tom Collins has looked for love in all the wrong places. Having the fabric of the society ripped apart due the Apocalypse hasn’t helped his dating life one bit either. But when a stranger comes to his famous mother’s boutique talking of deals, weddings, and nations on the brink of war, how does Tom respond? Will he work to fight the evil Marauders or fall victim to a woman he believes is “The One”?

Premonition: A Sign of Great Things to Come

Rachael Krotec has somehow made it look easy to expand and infuse new life into a genre many feel overused.

Empire’s Daughter (Book 1 of Empire’s Legacy): A True Masterpiece

The Unfortunate Expiration of David S. Sparks: Superb Speculative Fiction

William F. Aicher’s The Unfortunate Expiration of Mr. David S. Sparks immediately thrusts readers into a strange world of biotechnology, virtual reality, and post-modern political turmoil. David S. Sparks, the singular point of view throughout the story, provides readers with a window into a bleak post-apocalyptic outlook of the world, mired with chemical warfare, bioengineering mishaps, and political conspiracies. David is just as foreign to this new world as anyone who picks up this tale.

Mage Knight: Don’t Worry; both Mages & Knights are Present

 I’ll be frank: I wanted to play Mage Knight for a long time. C.D. first purchased Mage Knight in 2013 and bragged about the game so much. However, he always prefaced that to truly play the game, you need to play the long tutorial level first. I audibly guffawed at this time and time again, considering the collective hours we’d spent playing Civ V, Game of Thrones Risk, Game of Thrones the Board Game, and countless other games.
