I’ve been a tabletop gamer for most of my life.  My parents kept eternal stalwarts like Monopoly and Scrabble in the house for as long as I can remember.  After my first D&D game at 10 years old, gaming became a lifelong hobby.  Games help me and countless others learn valuable lessons that are applicable at the table and in the real world.  This is the beginning of a series of articles on lessons I learned from marathon nights killing dragons and stealing from cyber-orcs.  Today, I write about one of the more important and difficult for me to learn: expected value.

goblin battle

Did someone say Goblin Battle??!! Episode 5 left our adventurers in a bit of a pickle. In fact, in the business we call that a cliff hanger. After scouting out a Goblin camp, the group discovers that there is a survivor being held captive by the gang of goblins they followed after finding signs of the previous scouting party. A goblin battle prevails! This episode finds our heroes in some real trouble, fighting tooth and nail for the sake of the group. We have some fun rolls, some crazy things happen, and we all have great fun. We sure hope you enjoy watching! Until nextRead More →

Finding the Path: Episode 5 of The Keeper of the Dead Saga Greeting Geeks! Finding the path is the next move in our adventurers’ journey. It’s not a clear move forward after running into a giant spider nest but our adventurers persevere. They find new complexities await them at the base of the mountains. Each episode takes them closer to the final dangers they will face. The road is not clear and easy; instead, it is covered with dead and decaying forest but also some more dangerous and sentient creatures. As the new player to pen and paper role playing campaigns, I make sure toRead More →

On my way home from work this week, I saw a young boy walking with his dad.  I saw him slow down, look at a phone in his hand, and then excitement came over his face and he turned and high-fived his dad. I smiled as I drove by, because I knew that little boy was out catching Pokemon with his dad. Put simply, Pokemon Go is an augmented reality game by Niantic.  The free game allows you to walk around and, using your phone’s GPS, catch digital monsters called Pokemon.  The basics of the game are simple: flick a Pokeball at the Pokemon onRead More →

Many of you may have seen on my Twitter account how I launched an Inkshares campaign last week. Inkshares is a crowdfunding platform like Kickstarter or Indiegogo, but just for books and book publication. You have a concept and some writing done on a book, you can put that concept up and share some of your writing as you work on it. You work toward a specific goal of copies of books sold and the number of books determined decides what kind of publishing contract you will get. I’ll be honest; I had not heard of Inkshares before they did a competition last month with Geek andRead More →
