June 25th – July 1st

The Valley Nerd Watch! Go to a protest on June 30th if you are able to do so. If you show up, it will make a difference. People just want to know that their neighbors also realize kidnapping the children of asylum-seekers in order to torture them is wrong. It’s not a high bar. In […]

The Valley Nerd Watch! This week we want to let you know that the game Cultist Simulator is a lot of fun. Highly recommended to anyone who liked Fallen London/Sunless Sea, which the creators worked on previously, or who likes weird RPGs in general. It’s a kind of combination of a clicker game and a […]

The Valley Nerd Watch! We finished Vacationland by John Hodgman, a former resident of Massachusetts who once met Black Francis. It was a collection of good essays, with more cairn-building stories than we had expected but fewer cairn-building stories than we had hoped. It’s always interesting reading how other people deal with death, because we […]

The Valley Nerd Watch! We realized halfway into writing a thing about the boardgame Root that we probably shouldn’t put like a thousand words at the top of this thing so we’re going to write a bigger thing about it tomorrow! In the meantime we’d like to propose that you check out the newest surefire […]

The Valley Nerd Watch! We got to see John Hodgman and Monte Belmonte at the Shea Theater this past Friday! It was very nice. There was a lot of very good audience interaction and Monte was a fun interviewer. It’s weird seeing a famous person make in-jokes about very local things. We’re sad that John […]

  The Valley Nerd Watch! We just finished the game Tales of Berseria, which was quite good! It had fun characters with whom we had a fun time, and it managed to sell a lot of the extremely emotionally charged moments that sometimes come across as forced in these sorts of stories. Plus you can […]
