What is ‘Friday’?

Standard

When would you ever want or need a solo game, after all pretty much every one I’ve showed you has sold on the fact that it’s free. When would you be gaming alone and without the modern marvel of electricity with which to power your various gaming platforms? Well what if you were stranded on a desert island?

What is ’30 rails’?

Standard

Every little boy wants a train set. That is as much a fact as every little girl wanting a dolly and pram. By which I mean it is not a fact at all.

One of the cornerstones of tabletop gaming today is Pandemic, a cooperative game where you work as a group to scour the world curing the four plagues. Now they have released an easier to grasp dice based game to try and corner the other end of the market. I am bringing this up now to avoid the comparison later when I start talking about this here cooperative dice rolling game where you roam over the map trying to cure the various problems and ills. The big difference being that this time you have witchcraft and wizardry on your side.
