Powering Up With Power Outage

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  17 April 2019 Games pitched to children have been a hit or a miss in my book. Usually, the mechanics are either so simplified that they become unplayable after a while (and often broken by older kids and adults), or they are just kid themed with a convoluted mechanic.

REvisiting The World of Survival Horror

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  20 March 2019 Resident Evil will always be a special game for me. Growing up, it was a group game: friends and I would usually meet up, take turns playing, throwing ideas of where to go next and how to solve puzzles, and generally enjoy the story.

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  20 February 2019 Last year, I was keeping my eyes open for interesting, low cost games to pick up for review.

Living Your Legend In City of Mist

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  26 December 2018 When it comes to Apocalypse World, I haven’t had anything that really made me say “Wow,” outside of “Wow, I can’t believe I bought this book.” I picked up Dungeon World a few years back at the suggestion of a friend, and I just hated the way it...

Getting In On The Monster Slaughter

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  12 December 2018 I don’t normally review board games, but when I saw Monster Slaughter last year...I had to make an exception. I mean, it was a board game loaded with pop-culture references, mostly 80’s-based, and turned the typical slasher-film trope on its ear. Instead of playing someone escaping the monster,...
