Totally Accurate Battle Simulator – WE NEED THIS!

Pokemon Go has taken over the imaginations of America and given people who think they are clever a way to say Michelle Obama failed to get kids active where a video game succeeded.  Way to go.  You created a bunch of kids that will only go outside if there is a video game involved. Not…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Board Game? OK!

Since kids are good at video games and most adults who have kids suck at them, the parents (and kids with bad hand / eye coordination) have made super complicated board games all the rage so the older folks can get their edge back.  So the fact that there wasn’t a game made out of…
