Good morning world! As I sit here, coffee in hand, gazing at the boxed up Castles of Burgundy that spelled out my doom last night (Christina was on fire!), I thought I'd share some updates.
Also up this week is a review of Scythe: Invaders from Afar. I'm trying to do more of these expansion mini-reviews. The format is really fun. Sometimes adding constraints makes it much more challenging yet rewarding to write. Also, did you know that all of our reviews are up on BGG too?
Speaking of BGG... The Golden Geek award nominations were just posted and a certain podcast wasn't listed. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! A SCANDAL, I TELL YOU! *ahem* sorry... Ha! I'm certain it's only because we started in late 2016. We'll show them. We'll show them all! Seriously though, go vote for your favorite games and podcasts, and congrats to all the nominees. I wouldn't be doing this if I weren't so inspired by such amazing icons. I like to think we are doing something a little different though.
Last, just some housekeeping stuff. You still have a couple days to tweet #oldgamesnewhomes to @cardboardherald to enter our contest for Boss Monster 1 & 2. We'll also be posting an interview with Marc Paquien, up and coming designer whose first release is the new Days of Wonder game Yamatai.
Well, that's all for now. Stay tuned. I'm going to try and keep up with more games news and casual blogging as time permits.
