Hey hey! My husband and I like to spend our Saturdays adventuring and we often find ourselves in a game store (or several, if I’m being honest). When we head somewhere new we scout out all of the FLGS (friendly local game stores) in the area and we hit as many as we can. This weekend we headed to Charlotte, North Carolina.
UPDATE! We recorded the panel and you can listen to the audio here!
Hey hey! I am so excited to announce that I will be co-hosting a panel at Playthrough Gaming Convention at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, NC! Join me and fellow game enthusiasts Jim Price (The Board Game Bandit), and Dara Chalice on Sunday, February 18th, from 2 – 3 pm, as we discuss games that we’ll still be playing years from now and ones we won’t. What games will you be playing 5 years from now? Its obvious, but I’ll still be playing (Settlers of) Catan.
Please note: panel attendance is free and you do not need a ticket to attend, however you will need access to the convention and can buy your tickets here (20% off at time of publication!): https://www.playthroughgc.com/
Hope to see you there!

Katamino is a 1-2 player puzzle game that takes as long as you would like for it to take (box says 10+ minutes) and can be played by people of almost any age (box says age 3+). To play Katamino players have several options, all of which include using colorful blocks to complete puzzles or layouts.

I’ll read this to you!
Hey hey. I’ve recently discovered something called a “ten by ten” which is a commitment/challenge to play ten games ten times in a set amount of time, usually a year. I’m so excited to explore this and to work on my own 10X10 throughout 2018. This will be my first time doing a 10X10 and, while the concept seems pretty simple, I wanted to make sure I was “doing it right”. In addition to doing some research on my own I also posted this in an online community of board gamers:
