Off The Shelf Board Game Reviews

I have been a "card carrying member" of the board game community for many years and this is my contribution to the hobby. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ramblings of a mad man, a genius, or a grumpy curmudgeon depending on the topic and my mood!

There are a couple "Darn, I forgot" instances in this video but nothing that changes the outcome, Really just occassionally forgot to uptick Tantrum's Rage and the last fight I didnt followup with a bog pole Secrete. Nothing would have changed the outcome but I wanted to be accurate.

Join the grand adventure as we travel across Daelore in "Too Many Bones - 4 Days on Gamefound!"

This mini series of adventures will show Too Many Bones gameplay both with the base game and with various expansions.

Too Many Bones is a dice building adventure game that features co-operative game play for 1-4 players.

In day two of this journey, join Patches and Tantrum as they seek to fix a ruined Steambot that was pummeled into a heap by the evil troll Nom and his gang of never-do-wells!

Can our heroes defeat the vile Mulmesh and his cronies in an effort to unlock the secrets of repairing this broken steambot!

Hello all of you awesome people and welcome to the First Monday Show for September 2021. This is a variety vlog dedicated to the tabletop gaming hobby.

This month we talk about getting more game play out of the games sitting on your shelves! Instead of chasing down the newest $200 Kickstarter, why not repurpose your old games for about 1/10th of the price. Best part is you can do this now, instead of waiting 18-24 months for delivery. . .

Hello and thanks for taking the time to watch!

Welcome to the August edition of the monthly Vlog!

This episode we look st the Youtube channel "Black Magic Craft" and how they can help you enjoy the hobby within the hobby of blinging out your tabletop games.

Next up we look at upcoming Kickstarters including Arydia, He-Man (Men? sorry used the joke twice), and City of the Great Machine.

I talk about some upcoming content, apologize for no content in July ($15,000.00 in home costs is hitting the pocket book hard), and talk wayyyyyy to much about my opinions on what is going on in the lands of Petersen Games. Somewhere between some terrible F.U.D. and the wacky curtain that doesn't exist lies the truth.
