Rob Kalajian news 0 Comments

January is over. It’s now time to check how well I’m doing in my 10×10 Board Game Challenge. I’ve played a lot of games this month. Unfortunately not many off my list. Avoid the Void 2 Plays. 2 plays of Avoid the Void this time around, and both were at the very start of the time. I took the game …

Rob Kalajian news 0 Comments

Back toward the beginning of the month I posted about the 10×10 Board Game Challenge. I’ve finally printed out the sheet and picked my 10 games. Here they are in no particular order (lies, they’re alphabetical.) Avoid the Void is an excellent game that was released last year by Geek Fever Games. It’s faced paced, handles up to 7 players, …

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about the 10 x 10 Board Game Challenge now that the new year has started. The first place I saw it was on Tim Blank’s post on Gameworthy Labs’ site. The idea is to choose 10 board games and play each 10 times over the course of the year. Not an easy task, …

The Future of A Pawn’s Perspective

Rob Kalajian news 0 Comments

It’s almost 2017 and soon A Pawn’s Perspective will be a year old. The site has come a long way since I first started it as an overflow of items that didn’t really fit on Purple Pawn. It’s grown by leaps and bounds, and I’m starting to feel like maybe using my own personal social accounts aren’t doing the content …

The Long Road Ahead

After yesterday’s post I decided to sit down and take inventory of everything that’s come in recently. In line with my estimates, I’ve got 50 games on the dot that need to get played and reviewed. Again, this doesn’t include games already played, digital titles, toys, or gaming accessories. There’s a long road ahead, but I’ve already started planning r_day, …

Drowning

I’ve got a lot of games to review. A lot. I took a look at my review queue and counted 23 unplayed games on there. That’s actually not too bad for me. It means I’ve gotten a lot off the list in a good amount of time. Unfortunately I haven’t updated the list since PAX. I took home 13 new …

Coattails

Thomas Deeny (@DenaghDesign), another Purple Pawn Editor, wins the award for making me laugh so hard I almost fell out of my seat today. Thomas handles our Crowdfunding Highlights, and has started reporting on “Marketplace Confusion/Parody/Coattail Riding” games. Generally these are party games that are following in the footsteps of Cards Against Humanity. Usually these games are terrible. Anyway, he …

A Pawn’s Perspective

Rob Kalajian news 0 Comments

For a long time I’ve never really had a direction on this blog, or any of its previous incarnations. I’ve decided to change that, and start a focus to these posts. As many of you may know I write for Purple Pawn, a tabletop news website. I’ve been doing that now for over 6 years, and it’s something I’ve enjoyed …
