The Valley Nerd Watch! Happy Father’s Day to all of you! We’re just about to step out and play another in the COIN series of games, and we’ll report back on how many dozens of hours it takes to fully understand what the heck you’re supposed to be doing in this one. Last night we […]

The Valley Nerd Watch! JiffyCon was a ton of fun! It was possibly the most tiny and focused con we have ever had the pleasure of attending. It feels like we’re insulting it to talk about the size but we legitimately think we can say that of every convention experience available this is the one […]
