Now after four months, I can finally say I’ve completed Dawn of the Peacemakers, and can tell you definitively what I think.

Black Orchestra: A Step by Step Guide to Assassinating Hitler.

This is one of the most historically interesting games I’ve played, as while it’s always great to beat up Nazis. It’s almost always done from the position of the allied forces.

My birthday has come and gone. And this year it was the most INSANE, the most CRAZY, the most RIDICULOUS board game birthday yet. Everyone bought me board games, or board game related stuff. I was not expecting it, and I’m super grateful for my friends and family as they went above and beyond what any sane group of people should have done.

Did you see that in the woods just now? I think I saw the board game Cryptid.

Have ye heard the tale? A board game that wanders into town at night searching for lost tokens. Collecting them. Adding them to its box. And wandering off into the night? It is a tale as old as time, and yet no one has seen this board game.

No one, that is, until now.
