The Kill

My senses kick in. There’s something ahead. Something juicy. I need to see it. I need to assess…could this be it? Could this be the one? My pace quickens, a sweat of anticipation begins to build on my skin as the blood pumps. The digital wilderness begins to fly by as the speed increases. And

The Odd Duck

Something has occurred to me the past few years of the blogging challenge. I am really different. I mean, look at the others involved in this. Sure, Peter is similar in style in that he has his collectables and games and stuff, and Shaun likes his gadgets, and Liam sometimes talks football, but that’s about

There’s games to check out, yo!

I really do intend to have more meaningful and content-rich posts at some point, but I’ve been working extra hours these past few days. And I’m getting so many freaking board games right now that I need to learn now. NOWZ! There is no time for extensive bloggery, dammit! Did I buy them? No. Trades,

Random Thoughts

AKA ‘Cliff really didn’t have any one idea, and he’s tired’. Lucky you? -So sorry you had to answer the phone, receptionist at Schwab Chev in Leduc.

Or more specifically, the complete lack thereof. In 2012, I managed to plough my way through 55 books. Last year, that number plummeted to

Hey Hey, it’s a Thirty Day Summer Blog Challenge!

So yeah, that’s a thing and it’s happening again. And I entered myself into it again, so that I can once again find myself desperately scraping together whatever shreds of ideas I can gather into posts, only to fail and then use that as fodder for a post somewhere around day 22. Come along for

The Worse Thing I’ve Ever Watched?

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new contender. I warn you : this is lamentable from top to bottom. Watching this is like watching the end of human dignity as we know it. The year was 1995. Microsoft was unleashing Windows ‘95 upon an unsuspecting world. How to teach that world about their new operating

The comic book movie wars are over…

Really, it was never even a fight. Marvel showed up in a shiny new mech, while DC sputtered to the battlefield in a rusted out jalopy and started to cry. If this was ever in doubt, Guardians of the Galaxy was the absolute curb stomping heard round the world. Marvel made almost $100 million on

What I’m Playing on a Table : Duel of Ages II

And what a sprawling, majestic, enormous fever dream of insanity and fun it is! Imagine a world built as a giant arena for combat. Now imagine a multitude of combatants from different eras and galaxies being tossed into a giant crock pot of options. That’s the origin for Duel of Ages II. Each player (and
