The Specialist Games have been gone for a little while now, and of course that includes Blood Bowl. A dear friend once commented that Blood Bowl was one of the best games Games Workshop produced. I cannot find a reason to dispute this.
I do however understand that if something isn’t making them money, then they have to get rid of it. I just wish they hadn’t chosen the end of the game’s life to produce a color that applies solely to that game (specifically the turf on which the game takes place). It’s just nostalgically painful.
There IS a slight hope though, that this as evidence, combined with the fact that the Specialist page is still up and linked to the main page, could indicate something will be happening in the future with these titles? One can hope!
Don’t be fooled.
This is a hardened criminal!
It’s been a little while since my (or anyone’s) last post, but there have been things going on, for everyone. The holiday season is always a busy time for everyone, and as a store owner, I noticed that it was just as, if not more so for gamers. In my own realm, we moved to a new place just before Thanksgiving, so it’s been a roller coaster ride for us. We’re all getting back in the rhythm of things though, slowly but surely.
There will be plenty enough to go round for a while. The gaming must go on! I’m driving this blog to be more open-ended with the content and less 40k specific. I’m very much hoping to see a little more of everything. I encourage anyone who has any articles or ideas for the same to write to us and let us know! I also want to give a special shout out to Ambergeddon for her board game reviews! Continue Reading

Today I’m going to review a game that’s been around for a while, yet surprisingly few people I know have played it – Betrayal at House on the Hill. This is one of the first “non-traditional” games I played. The group I played with back then was kind of diverse, but everyone loved this game and the fact that it was constantly different. This game was also one of the first things my boyfriend and I bonded over (it’s his favorite game and definitely one of my top picks and he was thrilled to meet someone else that had actually heard of it.) In this game players explore a haunted house, one room tile at a time. As they venture further into the depths of the house someone becomes a traitor and then the survival countdown begins.

So, one day the boyfriend and I pop over to a friend’s house for a game day. We get immediately thrown into this wacky looking game called “Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre.” Now, even as a fairly avid board gamer I get a little intimidated when I haven’t had time to process or think about the game ahead of me, but that didn’t happen here. Why? BECAUSE THIS GAME JUST LOOKS AWESOME! Yeah, seriously. The artwork, done by artist Nick Edwards, is VERY Adventure Time and the game play is easy.
Game play is easy. Each player chooses a wizard, which has no affect on the game, it’s just for flavor. Players are then randomly dealt eight spell cards. They play a spell and when the round is over they draw back up to eight cards unless they have obtained a card that says they draw more. Continue Reading
