What is ‘The Colour of Magic’?

Standard

It’s now over a year since the death of what could be England’s greatest writer and in that time his work has been elevated to the level it deserves (probably making Sky kick themselves for dropping the series before they got to the eventual football entry).

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.

Standard

Before Hulu can get the ball rolling on their own classic, speculative sci-fi and market their own book to telly series for those after a bit more than blood and tits I thought I’d put forward my own thoughts on where their story goes wrong. No I haven’t seen the show, yes I am going off the book so yes chances are this may be full of spoilers but no it shouldn’t affect anything major in ……………….
