One of the greatest things about Tak is the open nature of the game. Cheapass Games provides the rules online, along with piece dimensions. People all over have been making their own Tak sets, and some of them are just awe inspiring. I’ve started keeping a Pinterest Board with sets I like, but I figured I’d spotlight a few here. …

Infinity Wars is a free-to-play CCG on Steam. As my readers will know, I’m a sucker for free CCGs, even if I only play each one for a short while. Sometimes you find a great one that sticks. I’ll be giving Infinity Wars a spin soon to see if this is one of those titles. At the end of this …
