It has always tickled us that while the Valley is correctly proud of a music tradition that includes such wonderful bands as the Pixies but there’s not much acknowledgement that it is also the source of a lot of artwork that has managed to travel to every corner of the world without folks recognizing the […]

Hope you have a great week! We had a busy weekend and we’re really looking forward to a nice game of Root later in the week. Also we finished Cadence of Hyrule! What a fun game, a perfect follow-up to Crypt of the Necrodancer if you’ve already played that, and a perfect introduction to that […]

Whoa! We started playing the extremely fun Cadence of Hyrule! It’s Crypt of the Necrodancer, only in Zelda. It’s all the neatness of the Crypt of the Necrodancer’s beating up baddies to the beat, only now you get to see cute little Bokoblins getting down to your beatdown! Anyway we started like hours ago and […]

We were just told about the Western MA Living Adventure Game Club! “Living Adventure Games are immersive, participatory programs that inspire kids to experience a setting and interact with that setting first-hand. This format gives kids agency over certain aspects of the game and encourages a deeper level of learning, understanding, and skills practice because […]

It’s the end of Game of Thrones! We were never wildly into the show, but it was nice to have a thing lots of people saw that had dragons in it, we don’t get to talk about dragons nearly as often as we’d like to. Donate to Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the Yellowhammer fund. If […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all! We are lucky to have a very good mom who has always been someone we try to emulate. We can only hope that we’ll be as capable and as accomplished as she is over the course of our lives.

Good news! The ROOT expansion pack is fun as heck. We had the delightful experience at Wednesday Games of playing as The Great Duchy, a powerful mole civilization hiding under the feet of the other factions! We were mostly testing that the rules were understandable, which meant a lot of being asked “what do YOU think that means?” but also they pretty much were! The new factions are very straightforward while introducing fun new mechanics!
