Welcome to The Game Aisle!
Ever notice how books, movies, video games, etc. are all reviewed — but you never see reviews on games you’d find in the game aisle? It’s a problem right? Most people now walk into their local Big Box store, Toys ‘R US, Barnes and Noble or small mom & pop toy store have to rely on cool box art or classic brands to pick a game. They know NOTHING about half the games in there. I find this sad.
So, since I am the type of person who will recommend games to total strangers if they look perplexed at my local Target, I thought I would do something about it.
The game plan is that I will review the good games, ignore the bad and sometimes talk about the ugly ones but only if they are fun to play. (see Pit review) I also feel compelled to share with you something about the inventor, because the stories about how these games came to be is often quite interesting. (And I’m an inventor and I think my fellow inventor friends deserve some credit. ha!)
