Boycotts Don’t Work, Do This Instead:

I disagree with the premise – Ask Papa Johns if a boycott can change company behavior… But the graphic does give good ideas on how to extend a boycott with wider behaviors… In particular, Atomic Mass (and by proxy Asmodee slash Fantasy Flight Games) mini games like Star Wars Legion or Marvel Crisis Protocol are really well worth the time.

Arkham Nights 2019

October 17, 2019

This past weekend was the Fantasy Flight Games Arkham Nights event for 2019…

This was my 3rd year helping out there, and it’s one of my favorite events I participate in all year… Several nights of helping players learn and play the Lovecraft themed Arkham Files games: Arkham Horror LCG, Arkham Horror, Elder Sign, etc. This year I was helping run larger event specific games, which was a joy across the board.

Seeing the designers/developers getting to interact with fans is awesome, and nearly everyone involved is so happy to be there… Love it.

Mansions of Madness

October 17, 2019

Somehow in years of playing the Arkham Files games I’ve never tried Mansions until tonight… I’m glad I finally did though. The “app enhanced” tabletop experience seems to be very hit or miss, but FFG really has it nailed with this genre… Narration, AI for monsters, puzzles which would be all but impossible without it… Mansions is a richer experience for it.
