This month I challenged myself by stepping further out of my comfort zone with Gamewrite’s Sneaky Cards. I headed to New York City with my brother, Nick Kida, to complete this month’s set of cards. While the weather wasn’t the greatest, the day sure was.
**Not a Sponsored video** I like this game, the challenges it brings, and the conversations it forces me to have with people I would have normally walked passed.

For Christmas, I received a most interesting present from my brother-in-law: Sneaky Cards by Gamewright. The premise is to find and meet new people, go to new places, and spread fun and joy through the use of trackable cards. The Sneaky Cards have a tracking ID that, when a holder creates a profile, logs where the card has been (think of those ‘Where’s George’ stamped dollar bills you’ve seen, only this is actually fun).
While I am one who loves meeting new people, I saw this as an opportunity to create a YouTube vlog series documenting my escapades. This vlog will be done monthly where I complete no less than four cards. Should I not complete four cards, I must continue the next month with the four new cards AND the ones that were left incomplete.
In an age where pranking seems to still be all the rage on YouTube, I wanted to create a better atmosphere where we all come together and have fun instead of being shocked or scared.

A tabletop game renaissance is upon us. With the success of the Unrivaled Tournament Series in Las Vegas this past November, many tabletop gamers have been left to their corner of the table eagerly anticipating the 2018 game lineup. Last year’s smash hit titles ranged from household favorites Ascension, Munchkin, and King of Tokyo to games of lesser-known popularity with Epic Spell Wars 2, Nevermore, and Villager & Villains. As the 2018 series looks to begin with finals taking place this August in Chicago, gamers from around the country are eagerly anticipating word on what games could help them win eternal glory (and a sweet payday). Now we can all just sit here and count our meeples, but I’ve compiled a list of the top five games I’d love to see in this year’s Unrivaled Tournament Series: Continue reading
With the release of the Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropping earlier this week, and the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi due out in a few days, nerd-dom is at its highest of levels right now. And while I cannot wait to see The Last Jedi in theaters on opening day, I’ve come to realize that I am more excited for Avengers than I am for Star Wars.
To some, this may seem sacrilegious. The franchises aren’t even in the same category or genre. How can they even be compared?
As I sit here at my desk pretending to do work that matters, I find my thoughts woozily drifting off to to the stars of 2183 and interstellar space travel. Sipping my green shake in my N7 hoodie, I fondly remember my expedition with Garrus, Wrex, and most importantly Commander Sheppard. Ten years have passed, and still the journey is as fresh as the day I started.
With Mass Effect: Andromeda released earlier this year, the Mass Effect series celebrates a Continue reading
