Top 10 Board Games Based on a Video Game

I play a lot of video games. It’s my primary activity when I am by myself, as it’s much easier to get started in than a solo board game. While we have been seeing a lot of board games making their way into the digital realm (thanks to tablet board games), we don’t see much cross over going the other direction. However, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t any. In fact, there are actually quite a few really good board games based on a video game.

Photosynthesis – Game of the Week

If you had told me 6 months ago that I’d be really enjoying a game about growing trees, I would have assumed you were crazy…or talking about the long out of print game Arboretum.

Marvel’s The Defenders Review

Netflix’s take on Marvel’s superheroes has been largely hit or miss for me. Both Daredevil and Jessica Jones were absolutely fantastic and got me originally hooked on the series. Yet I struggled to complete both Luke Cage and Iron Fists’ first season, as the both had problems with the pacing and the writing. Regardless, after 2 years, 5 seasons and 60+ episodes, we’ve reached the climax of what Netflix has been building towards, The Defenders. We are going to dive a little into the series here, so if you haven’t seen the season yet, spoilers abound. To say that...
