Kickstarter – Elemental Mystics

Rob Kalajian kickstarter Leave a Comment

Another Kickstarter pick, already? Yes. Already. Just look this game. I didn’t even look up how it’s played before I backed the project. I backed it purely on it’s design. Of course I went back and watched the “How to Play” video right after to make sure I didn’t make a horrible mistake. It’s a bit over the top, but …

#RPGaDay 2016 – Day 3

Rob Kalajian tabletop Leave a Comment

Character moment you’re proudest of? Today’s prompt is a tough one, mostly because it ties in with tomorrow’s “Most impressive thing another’s character did?” I guess I can give an overview today, and get into the gory details tomorrow. The session was back in ‘99. We had gotten a group together at college to play AD&D 2nd Edition in my …

#RPGaDay 2016 – Day 2

Rob Kalajian tabletop Leave a Comment

Best gaming session since August 2015? Like I stated in my first #RPGaDay post, I don’t play many RPGs anymore. It’s something I’m hoping to fix, but I need to find the time, the system, and the people to play. That being said, I still had a few experiences over the past year to draw from for the this question. …

Kickstarter – Pages of War

Rob Kalajian kickstarter Leave a Comment

Pages of War is a game I previously previewed on Purple Pawn, and has just hit Kickstarter. There’s been a few changes since I’ve played, but apparently nothing so major that my impressions of the game should differ in any way. In the game you’re a bard telling the story of one of four great races: The Men of Blue …

#RPGaDay 2016 – Day 1

Rob Kalajian tabletop Leave a Comment

The past few years I’ve seen several people participate in #RPGaDay, an event in August where people write about a specific RPG-related topic for each day in August. It’s a great idea, but since I really don’t play many RPGs as much as I’d like to anymore I’ve just enjoyed reading everyone’s content without participating. Then I read Thomas Deeny’s, …

Discovering Tak – Part 4

Rob Kalajian tabletop Leave a Comment

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 Reborn Coming to Steam

Rob Kalajian digital Leave a Comment

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 …
