Earlier this year, I read Please Don’t Tell My Parents I’m A Supervillain, a fun romp about a middle schooler who also happens to be a mad scientist in a Cape Punk world.

On the limits and influence of Palm Island
As I’ve mentioned before, I have been playing a lot of In Hand games lately. And that means I’ve been revisiting Palm Island, which is the poster child of In Hand games.

Another look at Roll and Move
Babhan is a game from the third Roll and Write Contest, one of the three Roll ans Writes contests BGG held that year. (Seriously, for a number of actually legitimate reasons, it’s a contest type that happens a lot)

Does anyone else remember Mulberry?
Every once in a blue moon, I remember an obscure little British show called Mulberry. It was never finished (and it clearly has an ending built in) and may have been underrated. It did have a beautiful sad, sweet theme song and a killer concept.

The fluff and flaws of Goblins Guns and Grog
It’s been a while since I have learned a Legends of Dsyx title but I felt like it was time to revisit the series. I’d been planning on trying Goblins, Guns and Grog for a while so that’s what got picked.

Falling off the No-Buying wagon
I’ve been out of the habit of buying physical copies of games that it’s no longer a resolution or anything. I’ve either gotten out of the habit of buying games or gotten into the habit of not buying them.

Magical tree houses and child endangerment
For the past several months, The Magic Tree House book series has been my go for reading to our son and occasionally having him read back. I’ve written about the series before but I’ve got some more thoughts.

The bookmark is the game
Brave the Book is a design contest entry that isn’t a great game but has a big ‘Hey, look at this!’ factor.

Pros and Cons in Hand games
Lately, I’ve been playing a lot of In Hand games. And by that, I mean even more than usual. For one reason or another, I just haven’t had a table handy.

Autumn has gone away
I was sad to see that that the files for Autumn are no longer available on any site that I could find. Particularly since I was thinking of making a fresh copy for family and I apparently never saved the files.

Kiwi Blitz is deeper than it seems
When I was bingeing Sleepless Domain for the third time, I decided that I should really try Kiwi Blitz since it’s from the same creator.

My May Gaming
Okay, what interesting gaming things happened to me during May?I continued my effort at learning at least new one Roll and Write a month with Mini Town from Dark Imp. It belongs to the draw-stuff-on-a-grid school of R&W. The number of Roll and Writes I’ve played like it is in the double digits and that’s just counting published games. Throw in design contest entries and it gets silly.

My May PnP
May was the last month in the school year and most of my crafting ended up being about potential class work.
