Big Changes! Exciting News!

We’re going to keep writing a newsletter every week, but we’re no longer going to try to keep you up to date on every single danged event going on in the Valley every week in that newsletter. We’ll highlight anything neat we find, but without trying to be exhaustive. We’ll also post some updates during the week about events we’re particularly into and maybe even do some interviews again! We liked interviewing people.

It’s 2020, the year we all get to be really freaked out in a more acute manner about our ongoing nightmare politics! Fair Fight is a good place to donate to, because Republican legislators tend to lose fair elections. Protest, donate, help out where you can. On a happier note: check out the PVGD Holiday […]

We’re really excited to see the semi-re-christening of Wednesday Games to “Start Playing” Games (get it)? There are now we think four separate events across Easthampton and Northampton, and they’re all wonderful! You should go to all of them, given of course that you’d like to play a lot of boardgames. Two are happening this […]

We got CONTROL, the un-searchable game by Remedy, last week. It is neat! It is a combination of the cult web horror-story wiki SCP and the cult TV series The Lost Room. Lots of mundane magic/horror, surrounded by Brutalist DC-bureaucratic suits who are trying to keep it all under… wraps. It’s a great setting that’s […]

Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving. If your workplace didn’t give you Friday off as well, they are a bad workplace. No one should be forced to travel Thanksgiving night. We’caught the back half of the last season of The Expanse with our mom this weekend and it’s really pretty danged solid. We can […]

First off, if you’re reading this before 10PM, head to Tabletop Day at the Deuce! “It’s that time again! As has been tradition, we’ll have an utterly gratuitous stack of games to play or gawk at. Experienced, casual, and non-gamers alike are welcome; we’ve got something for everybody, and we’re getting pretty good at picking […]

We’ve heard great things about Parasite, a new movie by Bong Joon-ho, a comedy about two families who become “toxically intermixed”. It sounds good! It’s playing at Images Cinema [50 Spring St., Williamstown, MA 01267]! Also! Today is Co-Op Game Night at Prodigy Minigolf & Gameroom [116 Pleasant St, Suite 018, Easthampton, Massachusetts 01027]!

ALERT! No Nerd Watch Next Week! We’re going to be at a wedding. It’ll be a lot of fun but also a lot of Not Doing This, so there you have it. Quick game recommendation: check out AI War 2 if you’re into weird, impressively ambitious RTS games that you can pause. It’s hard to […]

We just started using Ring Fit and let us tell you what a nice way to trick your brain into wanting to exercise while at the same time making sure that to any onlooker you appear extremely silly. It’s a legitimately surprising game! We expected it to basically fall prey to what a lot of […]
