Arkham Horror – Committing Cards: How, Why, and When?

When I first started playing the Arkham Horror LCG, I didn’t understand the point of skill cards over assets that boost your skill value. I also didn’t understand the point of committing non-skill cards to tests—why would I give up this event card when I could play it for a benefit? I just didn’t see the point of temporary boosts to your skills.

Marvel Movie Reflections, Issue #35: Captain America (1990)

There are some movies that are so bad, they're good. Movies that you can't help, but enjoy despite their glaring flaws. The "Captain America" movie released in 1990 is not one of those films.

Marvel Champions Top 10, Issue #8: Hero Cards from Galaxy’s Most Wanted

Avoiding franchise fatigue over an arc that spans 22 films is impressive enough; however, having audiences whipped up into such a frenzy that such a finale goes on to briefly become the highest grossing firm of all time (as of this writing Endgame is back in the second spot-damn you, Bluey Saldana) is utterly unheard of. I attribute a lot of this success to the emotional weightiness of the film-watching these otherwise triumphant heroes deal with grief and loss as they struggle between acceptance and the desire to elicit change is compelling and most importantly, relatable. Today we're going to deep dive into the scene that sets that tone and find out why this particular scene is my favorite scene in Avengers: Endgame. Welcome to the support group, I'll start...

The Librarian Who Went Solo

In my previous post, I was writing about my experience with The Innsmouth Conspiracy, scenario 1 & 2. Normally I would continue writing about it, but it's been real hard to obtain the mythos packs here in Malaysia. I've just recently got some of them, so stay tune for a write up about the upcoming scenarios. In the mean time, here's a sneak peak of the adventures of Stella Clark in the Devil Reef.
