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 …

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 …

Which gamer most effected the way you play? I can’t really say one player has effected the way I play more than others, as my experience as a role-player only grows with each different person I play with. Was is Dennis D., the first person to introduce me to RPGs back when I was 8-years-old? Was it Scott, who first …

Review – Emergents: Genesis

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

I first heard about Emergents: Genesis back in November of 2015 and was instantly interested in the game. Then, at PAX East this year, I finally had a chance to sit down and play the game. I also left with a copy to give it a proper review. Emergents is a comic book themed deck builder where 2-4 players get …

Largest in-game surprise you have experienced? Surprises are always fun, even when they’re not. They a bit of excitement and can dramatically change the tone of a game session. One of the largest, and well pulled off, surprises I’ve experienced in a game was during an set of extended Planescape sessions. The session in question was played over the course …

Rob Kalajian review 7 Comments

I love Mega Man. I grew up with Mega Man games, starting on the NES and playing them in all their sequels, spin-offs, and remakes throughout the years on various systems. As a kid I would put on my dad’s motorcycle helmet and run around pretending to be the Blue Bomber, stopping evil Robot Masters from helping Dr. Wily take …

Beyond the game, what’s involved in an ideal setting? There’s lots of things that are important to a great setting, but the absolute most important thing is preparation. A good GM should have a solid plan, and the players should have a solid grip of what’s going on headed into the game. Of course this still kind of falls into …

Do you prefer hardcover, softcover, or electronic books? What are the benefits of your preference? Why not both (or all 3?) I really love the feel of a sturdy, hardcover RPG. It’s a wonderful, tactile experience from when the book is brand new all the way until it’s been worn down and time and play. I still have my original …
