What Makes a Game Great?

26 03 2014

Gold DiceWe spend a lot of time here on TOG critiquing games. Every day brings a new batch of games to this great hobby, and we get to analyze what’s good and what’s not.

Should Established Publishers be Crowd-Funding Their Games?

28 02 2014

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!

Jeremiah & Firestone
