Board Games

Would you like fries with that?


The idea of the add on sale or accessorizing a purchase is nothing new.  Buy a new outfit?  Well naturally you need new shoes/ tie/ belt etc to go with it!  Burger joints try to sell you fries with your order, or upsell your purchase with an apple pie or larger drink.  We’re so used to it we barely notice and often ignore it… but today I want to suggest (sell?) to you a way to accessorize your games and up the enjoyment factor to 11!  (Well it’s one more than ten, right?)


Six-Sided Bliss!

Nerdy Jobs


I suspect that introductions are in order. Hi, I’m Boots. I am one of many people who find writing introductions incredibly difficult, mostly because I want to reference almost every single tired old pun that is in the “book”. I’m from Ontario, Canada and given that knowledge it is easy to presume that I spend the vast majority of my time at home buried under an incredible amount of ice and snow. When I get a chance to escape my hovel, I’m an avid board game nerd, miniature aficionado, and one who infrequently reads comic books.

I’ve been blogging for a couple years now, under this alias, though in the past my time has been spent behind a camera as opposed the keyboard. I do a fair bit of convention traveling; I have seen the steampunk mysteries of Templecon, the countless wonders of Gencon and the Hallowed Halls of PAX. I would love to call myself world-weary but that just makes me think of the Travel Network and I don’t believe I’d be a very good travel critic. I’d likely just end up writing reviews along the lines of: it’s too hot here, or not enough snow. Not exactly Outdoor Life Network material.
