An Ontario Wide Lockdown has begun so all in-store events have been cancelled until further notice.

Things I Found Interesting:

- I just watched They Live (with Rowdy Roddy Piper) on Netflix which inspired me to read this short geeklist of games that weren't killed by other games: They Live! Games that were supposed to be killed by other games

- Writing the above thought inspired me to search for They Live board games, and what do you know, They Live: Assault on Cable 54 is being released in the near future:

Board Game: They Live: Assault on Cable 54


- Ever want to make a living as a trader in a dangerous galaxy while simultaneously being hunted by a semi-sentient race of humanoid machines? Maybe Core Space is for you:

Board Game: Core Space


Crowdfunding:

- The makers of Kemet have created the dudes-on-a-map game Yucatan: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/matagot/yucatan?ref=bgg...
