 Well, I suspect anyone interested in attending Hattanooga in May very likely saw this coming. I should begin by apologizing for the radio silence as of late. Some of you may know that I run the Night Merchandising floor at our local Costco and providing supplies to pe...

I met Marc what seems like ages ago now and what follows is a piece written by him outlining his experiences as it relates to discovery of 18xx in the cardboard medium. Something funny I learned about Marc a while back was that for a very long time he was under the mis...

           One thing that always astounds me is the capacity for people to innovate. The other day I watched an add for revolutionized eye glasses. They are weighted in the back to keep them from falling off of your face when you tilt your head or do something active....

And Heat. And Sweat…..

18DO is the next (logical?) progression in what is becoming the ‘family’ of Harzbahn/Ruhr titles. If you have played either of those games and enjoyed them, this title looks to be right up your alley. This game differs from it’s predecessors in a...
