I am a untalented blogger who has too many games.
(I'll also admit that this is going to be 60% review, 40% pontification on games marketing, packaging, and rules. And the two are inextricable. Sorry.)
It's 2017. Wow, I'm amazed all my postings are still here. How long has it been since... okay, no, that is unacceptable.
And no, despite how sporadic my writing on this thing has been, this has nothing to do with this blog. (Sorry.)
You keep a jack and a spare tire in your car's trunk. Why not do the same for your game bag?
As someone who likes a wide variety of games, I have to ask: When did we become afraid of words?
Today we're going to direct our attention to "steampunk."
Wait, what? Smash it? Oh no no no no no! We're going to clean it up! And we might brush the excess verdigris off some other related genres while we're at it.
When I wrote this in 2012, I mentioned that I should write something on "non-traditional combat structures." It's high time I delivered.
