Darkrock Ventures: A Preview

Darkrock Ventures will be coming to Kickstarter on July 14th from a partnership between Gamelyn Games and Magic Meeple Games. I was able to play it a little early with my friend Andrew Enriquez. It was pre-production, and I have no idea of all of the cool things that will be coming, but I can speak to game mechanics and general enjoyment.

Jealousy in the Gaming Industry

This weekend, a lot of my friends will be having a very good time at Origins. Having lived in Columbus for two years, I can vouch for how remarkable having fun in Ohio is. I have little good to say about my time there except for “Go Buckeyes!” and “I prefer New Jersey.”

If New Jersey is the armpit of the nation, Ohio is the weird, hangy part of fatty flesh under the middle of its bicep. Go Buckeyes!

Yes, they’ll be at Origins. And I’ll be at work, furiously (in both senses of the word) grading students’ essays on The Great Gatsby or Jane Eyre. While my buddies are playing the new hotness and selling through scores of copies of their amazing games, I’ll be cursing myself for having my job and cursing them for having more fun than I get to have.
