Reign of the Accursed Sneak Peak

Lately there have been a lot of shame and woe in the way of vampires and vampire related books, movies, or games. I constantly find myself hearing the word “vampire” and wincing painfully. However, that is not the case when I watched the cinematic video for Reign of the Accursed. Reign of the Accursed is a horror tabletop… Read More »

LARP – The Movie [Kickstarter]

There’s been a lot of gaming movies in the past, and most of them have been horrible flops or laughable at best.

Gaming in the Digital Age: The D&D Virtual Tabletop Beta

I recently received an invite to the official Dungeons & Dragons Virtual Tabletop beta. So, what did I think about it?

I’ve yet…

Cleric Token Set Review

Last March, the table-top gaming world was pleased to learn that Wizards of the Coast and Gale Force Nine were teaming up to release a new line of accessories for the Dungeons and Dragons game.
