For Unto Us a Child is Born…

24 12 2013

This year we’ve both experienced the stresses of life; the hustle & bustle; and the joy, wonderment, and hope that comes with the holiday season. But we wanted to take a minute, and a deep breath ,and say thank you to all of our readers, subscribers, followers, and…. likers???
And to wish you a very Merry Christmas and holiday season. May the true meaning of Christmas be enough for us all.

Manger-Gustave-Dore And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:8-11)

We will be back a little later in the month with our regular flow and schedule of content. Until then you officially have our permission to take a break, be with the ones you love, and, of course, get a game in the table!

Merry Christmas to all!

CandleCoverToday we’re talking with Yehuda Berlinger, designer of It’s Alive!, and the recently released Candle Quest, which uses the same mechanics in a game about Hanukkah.

Yehuda, thanks for taking the time to chat with us!

Happy to oblige.

Suburbia—A Review

17 12 2013

suburbiacoverBy Firestone

Confession time: I’ve never been a big fan of Civ games. Not board games. Not video games. Not any games. They’re…boring. So Suburbia comes out, and lots of people call it a SimCity board game. This fills me with dread, and a desire to take a long nap… Could this be the first civ/city-building game I like? Or will I build a Landfill and then put this game into it? Let’s find out!
