  1. Review: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Is the Most Newcomer-Friendly Version Yet

    "I'm attacking the darkness!"

    Jill needs game badly.

    I was skeptical of the new Gauntlet at first. Then I saw the trailer and got to talk to Art Director Rob Tatnell about our shared memories, what to expect from this new version, plus the Warrior, Wizard, Elf, and most importantly to me, the well-armored Valkyrie.

  4. Ready Your Broad Swords: Princess Munchkin is Coming

    Bad Stuff: No bad stuff.

    Munchkin Princesses is a fifteen card expansion to the infamous kick-down-doors-grab-all-the-items-everlastingly-ruin-your-relationship-with-your-friends card game, which adds self-reliant princesses of all genders as one of the player classes. I can easily imagine adding this pack, currently in production and not yet for sale, to my Munchkin deck: who could say no to a "Rescue Yours

  9. Attention, Gamers: If You’re Celebrating International Tabletop Day, We Want Your Pics!

    Calling all dice rollers, deck shufflers, and dungeon masters! Tomorrow is International Tabletop Day, and we want pics of our readers' respective festivities. Why?

Should you accept this quest, we’ll need the following:
