TIME Stories: Estrella Drive thoughts – Article

So last night my group played through the Estrella Drive adventure / scenario for T.I.M.E. Stories. A few things have come to mind I thought I’d share about this sixth expansion, without spoilers. This isn’t a review as much as random thoughts and a sort of warning to those who are thinking of buying it. From the box (and therefore not a spoiler) Estrella Drive is set in Hollywood in the early 1980’s. Investigators...

He a prolific designer that has the ability to make old mechanics feel new or simply designs new mechanics. His games range from light filler games to heavy euro styled games. Blue Lagoon published by Blue Orange Games is on the lighter family side but has plenty going on that many of my heavy euro friends find satisfying.     In...

New Year Gaming Resolutions

It is that time of year when we pause with gratitude for what was and to begin with hope for the year to come.

I was gifted games by some people, my gaming group grew and we started sharing our collections. The best part is that new friendships were made and wonderful shared experiences created. Even though I only bought one new...
