We’re baaaaack! We’re finally back from our longer-than-desired hiatus and we’re super excited. We talk about what we’ve been up to and what we’re looking forward to at PAX East and in 2016!

A few games we played in the hiatus:
Pandemic: Legacy (Season 1)
Campaign Trail , which will relaunch on May 3 on Kickstarter. Find us at PAX East to get a closer look!

Board Games re-imagined for iOS:

Our kids have been playing more games, too! Games like:

Mario Super Sluggers
Mario Kart 8 – which has taught our kids about being graceful winners and losers… speaking of which…
Suspend by Melissa & Doug

A few things that we’re looking forward to in 2016:
