What is ‘Darkon’?

Standard

Darkon is a Larp group run on the east coast of north America in a place famed for the lack of sexual prowess of a ruler of an entirely different country. With councils, executive boards and senates Darkon is thus to Lord of the Rings what episode 1 is to sci-fi. In truth I have no idea what Darkon is like because it is far away and involves going outside and talking to people. Fortunately there is a movie version; that being……………………………….

Quote

“People on the side of ‘The People’ always ended up disappointed, in any case.  They found that ‘The People’ tended not to be grateful or appreciative or forward-thinking or obedient.  The People tended to be small-minded and conservative and not very clever and were even distrustful of cleverness.  And so the children of the revolution were faced with the age-old problem: it wasn’t that you had the wrong kind of government, which was obvious, but that you had the wrong kind of people.”- Terry Pratchett

What is ‘Ticket To Ride: United Kingdom’?

Standard

Ticket to ride is one of the biggest board games around today, known and loved by “gamers”, “noobies” and everyone in between.

What is ‘Judge Dredd: Mega City One’?

Standard

It’s been five years since Dredd dealt with the scum of Mega City One in a version of the raid that managed to pad its run time with a gratuitous use of the slo-mo button and while it managed to finally find a home on DVD it doesn’t look like he’ll be riding again. But wait as J.J returns to Star Trek with the brilliant idea of bringing back his dead dad in order to cash in on ‘The Avengers’ fame and rehash Kirk’s daddy issues again could we maybe see Karl Urban don the helmet once more for…………………
