A webcomic about board games and other geeky things.
Welcome! I’ve always played with the idea of starting a webcomic in my head and one evening, Heinze and I just kept spilling great ideas for comics… all about board games we’d played. After doing some research it turned out there are some very good webcomics about boardgames, but there aren’t that many related to the… Continue reading No System
Netrunner, I love and hate this card game. The game with runs, stim hacks, hidden agendas, brain and meat damage, bad publicity, advancement tokens, ice breakers and many more terms that belong in the Android universe. It took us more than two weeks before we felt like we started to grasp all the different aspects of the… Continue reading It’s an emergency!
We like to make music playlists for the games we play for some extra atmosphere. With the playlist we made for Flash Point we were mostly focused on songs that somehow involved the word fire. That resulted in us singing along with the tunes of Electric Six, The Prodigy, Bastille, Johnny Cash, The Bloodhound Gang and many… Continue reading This fire is out of control!
I think Star Realms is amazingly fun! It’s a quick and elegant deckbuilding card game with very nice artwork. This game has a dark side though! A lot of cards have a trash-option, with which a player can do additional damage… basicly self destruction! I always wonder what happens to all the poor loyal people… Continue reading Ultimate Sacrifice
The creators of Seasons use different terms for their ‘ magical’ persons: sorcerers, wizards and magicians – so I don’t want to start a discussion wether a sorcerer is the same as a wizard or not. I just stuck with wizards for this comic. 😉 Seasons is a beautifully illustrated card game that’s playable for… Continue reading Hoarding wizards
So, last week I participated in my first Netrunner tournament (actually my first game tournament ever!). I’ve only ever played Netrunner against Heinze in the comforts of our home. So this was quite a big step for me. I find Netrunner a very, very hard and slightly nerve wrecking game. My brain tries to grasp… Continue reading It’s just a game
We both very much enjoy the reviews of Shut up & Sit Down, but they can be quite harmful for our wallets. I believe that it was their review of Netrunner that sparked our interest and enthusiasm for the game. Also Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective, Dead of Winter and Seasons! And probably some other games as well.… Continue reading Hide your wallet!
This comic is about the monster cup in Elder Sign from which you have to randomly pick a monster token when a new monster appears in the game. Pulling out a really strong monster at the wrong moment can really determine the ending of the game. Mostly you just hope that you pull out a… Continue reading Like a box of chocolates
In Agricola players can hold one animal in their house as a pet, no matter the size. There is quite a difference between sheep and cattle, so I always love to imagine how it would be for your farmers to actually have these ‘pets’ in their tiny little house. I’m going to admit that I… Continue reading Aww! Can we keep it?
I guess most of us board and card game players know this feeling. You can only protect your game up to a certain point, but at least sleeves do help a lot. Playmats are excellent for protecting those pretty art sleeves. 😉 Personally, I’m not a fanatic card sleever, actually I only sleeve the cards with… Continue reading Safety First
