    The Game Is Afoot – Again

    Who doesn’t love a good mystery? I certainly do, or don’t, or uhh… that’s what I get for using a double negative. What I’m saying is, I love a good mystery! That’s why when I looked on my porch yesterday and saw a package from Asmodee that I hadn’t ordered, I was intrigued.

    FOUNDING FATHERS: Make America Fun Again (Please)

    If you are like me, you’re probably sick of the current state of the political landscape. It exhausts me.

Enter the PlayStation Network Holiday Sale and I scored the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for a ridiculously cheap price. I’m a huge Tomb Raider fan. […]
