Board Game Reviews
When I was a kid, there were these silly little puzzle games that had a 3 by 3 grid and 8 tiles that slide along this grid to form a 2D puzzle. I was never really any good at those puzzles, however. I always broke them apart and put them back together. And of course we all remember the Rubics cube. I was the same with the Rubics cube. Zen Benders takes me back to those moments when I just want to take it apart and put it back together.
One of the most enduring role playing game subjects is, of course, the Cthulhu mythos. Associate your game concept with anything related to H.P. Lovecraft, and you are almost guaranteed a success. Trail of Cthulhu (ToC) by Pelgrane Press came out of nowhere and won Silver Ennies for Best Writing and Best Rules at GenCon 2008. This was a game that definitely caught my attention.
