Tell me if you’ve heard this one: It’s Thursday night and you want to play a game. But everyone in the party is across town, and it takes too long to set up, so they’d need to leave half an hour into actually playing. So you look over at your significant other, and they want […]

I have been doing this for 10 years, since July 2007. In the early days of getting into the boardgame hobby, I hungrily devoured all sorts of boardgame-related content I could find on the internet. I regularly read blogs maintained by others, like Mikko Saari, Bruno Faidutti. Show More Summary
I’m doing things a tad bit backwards here. This week’s GnomeCast was Matt, JT and myself rambling about the elements of a good one-shot game. It was a hastily thrown together episode due to how busy I’ve been, but Matt jumped in and did some research on the Stew’s archives and noted that, other than […]

I’m going to admit something right up front. I’m cheating with this review. I’m running a Dresden Accelerated game, and reading through this book is allowing me to review it, as well as potentially steal things for my campaign. Does that make me a bad person? My love of the Dresden Files is what led […]
“The sword of duquesne gets stolen by the naked man…” Community did an excellent episode where they played Dungeons and Dragons, and it was advanced! One of the things that has always struck me about that episode was the part where the character Neil’s sword gets stolen out of spite by another player. […]
Eurydice Games is just over two months old and has completed its first calendar quarter. It's been a busy one, with most of my focus (unsurprisingly) on Zombology. At the very end of July I officially formed the company and requested a bank account. Show More Summary

Guillermo del Toro co-wrote and directed this 90s monster movie starring Mira Sorvino. Of course, del Toro has gone on to become a modern monster master, so it’s interesting to go back and see some of his earlier work. Mimic...
Nothing like a pair of excellent monster movies to keep the Halloween feeling flowing. One is from the director of Spiderman: Homecoming, the other from the great Guillermo del Toro (see next post). Clown [source: Netflix], directed by Jon Watts,...
One of the most time honored adventure hooks is the treasure map. Essentially they exist to get characters from point A to point B, maybe with a little adventure in the middle. Here are some alternatives to the basic treasure map that serve the same purpose. The Compass: An enchanted compass that always points to […]
Wait, am I reviewing the same movie twice? Well, yeah. The last two nights I watched Shutter, a 2004 Thai movie, and Shutter, the 2008 American remake. The original is a solid if unexceptional horror movie. It fits right in...
It’s a (nearly) yearly tradition, in which I watch a horror movie every night in October and review all of them. Most years things are pretty busy in October and I don’t get to all 31, but this year…well, this...
Frank Mentzer, gamer and game designer who started working at TSR in 1980, has launched a Kickstarter for a new game setting: Worlds of Empyrea. Here is the Q&A we did discussing this new project and his thoughts about the OSR. Q. Let’s start with the title itself: “Worlds of Empyrea.” Not the kingdom of […]
One of the advantages of running a larger company is that you have people around the office to bounce ideas off and a corporate board to whom you are accountable. As a sole trader, I have neither of those things. So I've decided to form a board of advisers instead. Show More Summary
