I laugh and I cry at Knights…

Tweet Besides being a longtime gamer I have other hobbies.

The dice are falling!

Guillotine

Tweet Generally my Dungeons & Dragons game starts at 1:30pm on Saturdays. Sometimes not everyone can make it. Sometimes enough people can’t make it that we opt out of D&D all together for some other game to play. Last weekend was one of those days for me. The game we chose to play was a pick by my Fiancé’s. It was …

Zombie Dice

Tweet While I was at the Penny Arcade Expo I waited in several lines to attend various events thought out the course of the three-day weekend. While waiting in the lines I noticed that just about every single person was playing a game. Be it a hand-held gaming device like the Nintendo DS, Sony PSP or iTouch, to Card and Dice games. …

And finally, the Book Club!

Tweet Missed me yet? Anyone… Are those crickets I hear? Well I certainly missed all of you!
