I am interested in speaking with someone who is adept at Photoshop/Illustrator and is looking to be immortalized with my relaunch by assisting me with a couple specific design implementations, including a logo, banners, website and other like item needs. Payment is most definitely on the table for interested parties.

Please contact me directly at drakkenstrike@gmail.com.

Any donations would be GREATLY appreciated. You can donate at my website if you are at all interested....and even a $1.00 would help.

People's love for particular games can be attributed to a number of factors; the games mechanics, its theme, the company developing it, or even the designer behind its design. It can be one specific aspect that draws their attention, or a mixture of many that drive them to make that inital purchase.

For me, it's my inherent need to collect and find games that bring out the inner child inside of me, and the most common way for me to experience that moment between Wishlist and Wantlist is to discover "What Comes Inside the Box".

I developed this ongoing series of Videos to give users like myself an opportunity to see, in Full HD, what they will be purchasing before they make either a good or regretful purchase.

I am not a journalist, or someone who is at all intimate with the intricacies of Video Editing. I basically went out, bought a Camcorder and some Software, and just started filming. I am a Gamer through and through and do this only as an honest attempt to help other like-minded gamers whom might likewise feel in the dark about what to purchase and what they might wish to avoid. The most honest way to do this is to just speak how I feel and allow for the Camcorder to pick out the details of these games that I bring to you in Full HD.

Before we start, I would like to invite everyone to see my current game room. It's not much, but I try to keep it organized and a place that my friends and family can enjoy.

This is a really well done 30-minute "filler" game that my wife really loves to play. It's elegantly simple, yet highly enjoyable which I find to be its real draw and the reason we keep coming back to play it. It's a shame that they still have yet to fully address the issues with the poor quality of the cards that shipped with the game.

A game that is most definitely a visual treat to look upon, especially due to its artistic design and inclusion of after-market pre-painted miniatures. Unfortunately it is also a game that is too simple mechanically for advanced gamers, and warrants the phrase of "Style over Substance".

High School Drama's gameplay mechanics generally emulate its overarching theme of High School cliques and the worlds that students sometimes loose themselves in. Unfortunately, the game is also accompanied by a poorly written rule set and far too simplistic gameplay to be completely recommended.

2 Players
Playtime = ~90-120 Minutes

An extremely difficult game to learn and teach, if only for the sheer amount of rules and conditions one may encounter throughout the games numerous phases. Not to be overlooked though by those whom enjoy deep/strategic wargames.

A very well designed Euro-Style worker placement game. Although I can appreciate the simple complexities of the strategies within the mechanics, I feel that the lack of a unifying theme and over extended length of gameplay make this game harder to enjoy then they should.

I think I may have over-produced this one a bit, but I really like the way it turned out in the end. A really incredible social cooperative game whose Theme far outweighs its shortcomings. If you are at all interested in highly thematic games, do yourself a favor and give this one a look.
