Homesteaders and Tammany Hall

Tonight on GeekNights, we review two board games after some first playthroughs: Homesteaders and Tammany Hall. They're both pretty good. Check out some memories of Doom and the 3DS gets an update that almost no one will care about.

Yard Games

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider yard games like Bocce, Cornhole, Horseshoes, and Badminton. These games share certain characteristics: they must be reasonably deep orthogames, have shallow learning curves, and provide contextual social opportunities yet not require them. Rym reviews Ingress (it's a Candy Box), and Scott takes a guess that Pandemic: The Cure doesn't fall too far from the tree. We posit on why anyone even bothers to play Pandemic. Rym has Google Glass.

Burning Con 2013

Tonight on GeekNights, we tell you a little about Burning Con 2013: The Pentaclagon! We also have some photos from the con, including the Burning Photobooth! In the news, don't buy Castellan, and don't buy Dungeon Roll.

Also, be sure to check out the newly updated GeekNights Forum! It's an Ivory Tower that proves many of our points. Also check out our continuing series: GeekNights Presents Utena! It just updated!

Neuroshima Hex!

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the best game to play while pooping: Neuroshima Hex! In the news, PS4 owners lose backward compatibility with headsets, and Yoshi's Cookie is being removed from the virtual console.

Gaming News Roundup

Tonight on GeekNights, back from Istanbul and PAX (for real this time), we consider the Steam Box, PAC-MAN CE DX+ on Steam, Mighty Number 9, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. We're also resuming production of GeekNights Presents: Utena, and will soon be streaming many more... things.

Saltybet

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about Darude's Sandstorm (real, not fake) and Saltybet. Heroquest (was a bad game) and is being re-made. River City Ransom, similarly, is also being remade. Diablo III drops is shit-tacular real money auction house. Scott is streaming things. (Rym will be soon). Video from PAX (Bad Games). All this and more... on GeekNights!

Innovation and Village

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the mediocre Innovation and the basic but well done Village. Skip the former, but use the latter as a nice intermediate board game. In the news, Games for Windows Live dies, and Origin will allow refunds of EA games. Rym also geekbites Fire Emblem: Awakening (it's no Advance Wars). Come see us at PAX Prime, where we'll be presenting Bad Games and gaming at the Pre-PAX Sky High Tabletop Play Benefitting Food Lifeline!
