In life you have to do a lot of things you don't f*cking want to do. Many times, that's what the f*ck life is... one vile f*cking task after another.

Handelabra Kickstarting One Deck Dungeon for Steam
I guess it was only a matter of time before it happened, but it seems strange to talk about Handelabra Games Inc. and not a Greater Than Games' game. Instead, for their next foray into the digital board game market, Handelabra has teamed up with Asmadi Games and designer Chris Cieslik to bring One Deck Dungeon to our laptops.

We don't know much at this point other than Handelabra will be launching a Kickstarter for the PC/Mac version on November 1st. Looking for a mobile version? It's likely, especially if the Kickstarter does well.

What else do we know? The game will be single player with the ability to control 1-2 heroes. The ability to control up to four heroes will be one of the Kickstarter's stretch goals. We also know that the One Deck Dungeon: Forest of Shadows expansion will not be included at launch and will also be one of the Kickstarter's stretch goals.

There will be a lot more information coming on this over the next few weeks, and we'll be sure to let you know when the Kickstarter goes live in a couple weeks.

Through the Ages Updates to Version 1.2.4
The digital version of Through the Ages is less of a game and more of an obsession for me. I can't even remember a time when I didn't have 3-5 games going at once, and it's not getting old. That said, last week the app was updated and it introduced a feature I didn't even know I wanted, but now that it's there I can't imagine living without it.

The feature I'm talking about is turn replay, which you can now change in the settings to be slow as molasses or instant. Instead of the flurry of tokens and cards that accompanied your opponent's turn, we now get a window clearly explaining every single action your opponent took on their turn. If you are a TtA neophyte, this is invaluable information to see exactly what that pesky AI or human player is doing when you're not watching. Even TtA veterans will appreciate the feature, however, as suddenly everything your rival does becomes crystal clear. And, if you end up not liking it, you can always just switch to "instant" and turn it off.

That wasn't the only thing they added. Age III Wonders and Events will now tell you how many points they will score you and all you opponents, so you don't have to scour each players' board to see if you should play Impact of Balance anymore. Woot!

There's more:

• Added opponent's turn replay settings (from instant to very detailed)
• Age III wonders and events include information about their potential culture gains
• End game scoring can be speed up now
• Added notification about the next event card, should the player know it
• Improved stability
If you haven't downloaded Through the Ages yet, you're missing out on one of the best (if not THE best) board game apps out there. What are you waiting for?

- Through the Ages for iOS Universal, $10
- Through the Ages for Android, $10

Quick Reminder: Tomorrow is Warhammer Quest 2 Release Day
I really have nothing to add here, I'm just really excited to finally get to play Warhammer Quest 2.
