Lovecraftian horror is something I only really discovered earlier this year. Sure, I’d seen the superhero episodes of South Park, where Cartman teams up with a My Neighbor Totoro-style Cthulhu, but it wasn’t until recently that I started diving into the stories and mythos—as well as the legacy they left behind. One of…
An experiment in both hysteria and hilarity, One Night Ultimate Werewolf not only lets players find out how they’d handle a witch hunt, but also how much their friends suck.
A 31-year-old man has been charged with stabbing another guy seven times—and hitting him with a mallet—after an argument broke out during a game of Magic: The Gathering.
Tales From The Loop, a role-playing game, is what happens when Netflix’s Stranger Things and the Welcome to Night Vale podcast go bump in the night. Players step into the role of kids in the 1980s, trying to get by in a town where anything can happen. Only the biggest scares aren’t from aliens or killer birds, but…
Cubes are, after all, an easy shape for a box—and convenient for storage, too, especially when said cube is jam packed with everything you’ll need to play the brand new Star Trek tabletop roleplaying game.
The captain’s been killed, the engines are dead, and aliens are at the front door just waiting to come in and make a bloody mess. New board game The Captain Is Dead is basically what you get when you fast-forward to the final disastrous minutes of any Alien movie.
CD Projekt Red’s RPG masterpiece came out nearly two years ago, but damn does it still hold up. And recently, a handful of people’s favorite character animations from the game have been making the rounds.
Getting into Dungeons & Dragons can be intimidating. You need maybe three or four other nerds to play with, some pricey tomes full of numbers and tables, ample free time and several dice with as many as 20 sides. It’s a lot to fathom, and even more to set up. How will you find D&D-curious friends? How will you…
Andromeda is an entirely new galaxy, and exploring it can be overwhelming. Here’s what you need to know to make the most out of the latest Mass Effect game.
A new tabletop miniatures game is coming, starring your favorite Game of Thrones badasses, just in time for winter.

Mass Effect: Andromeda sprawls and sprawls, eagerly offering you so much to see and do that it nearly loses itself in the process. In this massive and uncertain voyage into an alien galaxy, the best way to center yourself is to hold on to other people, and trust that the mission will accomplish at least some of its…
The Central Intelligence Agency needs to make sure its operatives are at the top of their game, so maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise games have become one of the agency’s most popular training tools?
What goes around comes around. WizKids has announced a new board game based on Syfy’s The Expanse, which in itself stems from an online role-playing game that was turned into the hit book series.
Most perks in Fallout 4 are just supposed to give you a little boost, nothing major or almost game-breaking. This is not one of those perks.
Fallout 4 is a pretty absurd game, on the whole. One moment you might become a comic book hero, the next you might go on a quest for a long-lost drinking buddy robot. That’s just the stuff on the surface. Things can get even stranger, if you look in the right places.
When we previewed some art from Bestiary 5 a few weeks ago, it merely looked like a cool book of monsters. Now that we’ve got our hands on it, we’re convinced that even the most jaded, been-there-done-that gamer is going to need a copy. This is a killer creature collection.
I can never, ever get enough monsters for my RPGs. Never. I will fill entire bookshelves, binders, and hard drives with nothing but monsters. I suspect I’m not alone, so check out this gallery of creatures from the upcoming Pathfinder Bestiary 5.
Two major RPG sourcebooks, Wizards of the Coast’s D&D Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide and Paizo’s Inner Sea Races for Pathfinder, both came out in the last few weeks! Here’s why you should skip them both, no matter what RPG system you’re using.
