Picture This...

Today we have two more of our friends joining us at MoJoe's Coffeehouse in downtown Indy off of Michigan St. to play the classic, creative, storytelling game known as Dixit.  The staff at MoJoe's Coffeehouse were respectful and have served me well the times that I have gone there before.  The two most important things to us no matter where we get our brewed drinks, is that the people are kind and the beverages are great, both of which MoJoe's Coffeehouse has fulfilled for us, and we look forward to returning again.  Dixit is a 3 - 6 player, storytelling, voting, party game primarily geared toward the creative and open-minded individual.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so come with us as we delve into the abyss of artistic dreams to explore the mystique and wonder that is Dixit.

Fairy Good Indeed

Once upon a time, there was a happy ending "… and so, the valiant prince slew the evil dragon and saved the beautiful princess!"  But in the Land of the Dark Tales, it's not always that way, and not everyone lives happily ever after.  In the deep woods you can meet disturbing creatures that reject the light, ready to deceive with enchanted items and powerful curses.  Today we returned to Sure Shot Coffee to play Dark Tales and drink dark coffee.

Component Corner: Ep. 1 - Stonemaier Games Treasure Chest

Greetings fellow tabletop gamers, and welcome to our 50th post!  Today is the beginning of a new addition to the blog called Component Corner.  Anyone who plays tabletop games knows that game components are both required and optional.  In most cases you have a specified amount of game components that are supposed to come with your game.  Other times you can purchase additional components that are purely optional, but add a significant amount of enjoyment and quality to your gaming experience.  Claire and I will be writing multiple episodes for Component Corner, but they will be spread out more and not always on a designated schedule like some of our other segments.  We love getting additional components for our games to enhance the quality of the gameplay, and since we have numerous components in our possession, we figured these segments would be a great addition!  In today's first episode, we'll be reviewing the Stonemaier Games Treasure Chest.  Read on to learn about this great complement to your board games.
