Just scan the iPhone, please

I know, I know. I promised I’d get these to you yesterday. But I was busy. Honest. I was definitely not playing Boom Blox and watching Torchwood.

UniWar: Turn-based hex-strategy game for iPhone

If you’ve ever played Nectaris (a.k.a. Military Madness) before and you liked it, then you’re in for a treat. UniWar for the iPhone is a brilliant little game that elegantly captures the style and feel of the above-mentioned game, but with beautiful graphics, and excellent touch-screen controls. The premise is simple. Using your base and […]

Beer, buddies, & board games

Got a chance for a Guy’s Gaming Day this weekend, because my wife is awesome and loves me. Starting shortly after noon, my cousin Andrew, friend Jeff, and I all sat down to play Shadows Over Camelot.
