Hand of Fate 2 – New Companion

Rob Kalajian digital 0 Comments

I enjoyed the original Hate of Fate, though I got burnt out on it fairly quickly. It felt like a great start, but it needed a bit more. Hand of Fate 2 looks like it may deliver that, though I’ll have to see once it’s actually released. Today Defiant Development announced a new companion to help players. Colbjorn is a …

Historical person you’d like in your group? What Game? Gygax. It’s gotta be Gygax. He’s the daddy of modern RPGs, and I’d love to play Chainmail with him. Of course I’d want to play in the back at the beginning when everything was fresh and new. I feel like if I were to play now it wouldn’t feel as magical. …

Review – Tally Ho!

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

I’ve always enjoyed the Kosmos 2-player line. Classics like Odin’s Ravens, Hera and Zeus, Lost Cities, Blue Moon, etc… I was really excited when Thames and Kosmos wanted to send me a few of their latest 2-player games for 2016. One of these is a new edition of Tally Ho!, a game about hunters and wildlife. It’s a two player …

Review – 4 the Birds

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

I’m going to say, right off the bat, that I was skeptical about 4 the Birds when it first arrived on my doorstep. Just from reading the flavor text on the back of the box I though it may be a bit boring. I was wrong. That isn’t to say the game doesn’t have any issues, but the ones it …

Your best source of inspiration of RPGs? Everything. That’s kind of a lame answer, but I’m sure it’s one most people would choose. Everything is inspiration. A hike through the woods. The sights/sounds while driving to work every day. Every movie I’ve ever watched. Every book I’ve ever read. The awesome art I saw online, or even some other great …

Your dream team of people you used to game with? I’ve mentioned some of these people already in previous posts. Dennis D. – The person who first got me into RPGS Scott – A great RPG player and GM that I spent many summers RP’ing with at camp. Gabe – One of the best GM’s I’ve ever played with from …

What makes a successful campaign? Some of these prompts feel like they’re really dialing it in… What makes a successful campaign? Both the players, and the GM, having fun. That’s pretty much the entirety of it. If you’re not having fun, then the campaign isn’t successful. That doesn’t mean a campaign can’t invoke anger, sadness, regret, or any other emotion. …

Review – Three Cheers for Master

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Atlas Games had a mountain of Three Cheers for Master boxes at their PAX East booth this year. It was pretty hard not to notice as you walked by. Everytime I walked by the booth there were demos of the game being run with people crowded around the table. I never really got near the table, but I was able …

Hasbro’s Beyblade Burst App Briefly Hits iTunes Store

Yesterday some Beyblade fans were lucky enough to grab Hasbro’s upcoming Beyblade Burst app as it popped up on the iTunes store, then was quickly taken down. Reddit user n0xWave was able to grab some screens for me, since he was able to get the app before it disappeared. In the shots you can get a good look at the …

What game is your group most likely to play next? I’ve got two groups I’m lining up to play with. The first is my kids. We’ve been prepping and trying to find time to start a No Thank You, Evil! campaign. It’s an awesome system for kids that encourages helping each other out, and lets kids really run wild with …
