We have had about a dozen or so inquiries recently from people seeking the podcasts. They aren’t currently available because I dropped my long-standing use of Libsyn as a provider and moved to a generic one where I can host many more websites (including my daughter’s Gwyndolyn.com for her singing career). As a result, BGB shows […]
Sometimes it feels like I’m constantly making excuses about my board game output. That is, both the podcast as well as the actual games I’m designing. The background on that isn’t terribly interesting; I have a busy life with a high-energy career, two teenagers that have busy lives that I participate in, and a big […]
The review of the game-cation continues with more wonderful games we played. Level X This pleasant EasyPlay game got played once on Friendcation and it’s a favorite opening filler. I actually have four EasyPlay and Schmidt titles in a Ligretto Dice box (adding Finito, Level X, Numeri) that I always bring on holiday with me. Level […]
Wonderful to see board games covered in the New York Times. Read on for coverage of New York 1901!
Xbox, PlayStation and the iPhone may have relegated many board games to the closet at the lake house, but a three-dimensional diversion that officially debuts this week may delight retro New Yorkers.
July and December are my favorite months because I take a break from work during these months. I mean, a real break from email, side projects, and the long hours I put in at the office. Don’t get me wrong – I actually love my job. But sometimes you need to unwind and board games […]
First, congratulations to all the nominees and recommended titles. I’m glad the Spiel Des Jahres continues to be a source of promotion for the hobby, even if it rarely is considered the ultimate arbiter of quality by serious gamers. The inclusion of the Kennerspiel (Complex Game) category is certainly welcome but even there, serious gamers have […]
Yes, it’s been a pretty quiet patch of time here at Boardgame Babylon. I’ve been quite busy for…well…the last couple of years. When I changed jobs a couple of years back, I took on a role that consumes more time but in a good way because it’s an exciting company, the podcast took a hit. […]
We’re very excited to see a new expansion for Castle Panic. This is one of my son’s favorite games and The Dark Titan is definitely on our buy list.
Justin explains how to play The Dark Titan. Find out all about Agranok, the Boom Troll, the Dark Sorceress, and the Cavalier! Learn more about The Dark Titan…
In a way, I’m surprised I bothered to read this book. I haven’t really played role-playing games since the 80’s, when I was in high school. But in the last year, my teenage son had expressed an interest in playing them just to give it a try. So, we tried a 4th Edition D&D game with […]
Unspeakable Words is coming back in the form of a Kickstarter. It’s a solid filler and the new edition looks great. The Deluxe edition includes entirely new artwork for all the cards by John Kovalic. There’ll be new pawns, a new D20 and a pawn/dice bag (not a part of the original edition). Check it out here.
