When I first heard about Martian Dice, I felt like I needed to get a copy, because Zombie Dice has been a hit with pretty much everyone I know. Martian Dice has some similarities, especially in appearance, but it’s a very different game with its own pros and cons.
Blokus Duo is a quick abstract game that is simple to learn but challenging to play. Sean and I don’t play many games like it, but we both enjoyed it. It’s a puzzle-like experience to figure out how to block your opponent and claim areas for yourself. Continue reading
Calling LCR a “game” is a bit of a stretch. LCR Dice is more like an activity than a game, since it is 100% luck and no strategy or skill. But it can be an entertaining gambling activity, especially when played for money. Continue reading
Zombie Dice is by far my most played game over the past few years.

Our boat is a little cruiser with an enclosed cabin, so we can use it year-round and even camp (and of course play games) on it. Continue reading
Last weekend, Sean and I went camping at Lake Easton with our friends Charlie and Michele. Naturally, I packed a bag of games! I tried not to go too far overboard and focused on packing small games that would work well at a picnic table. Continue reading
