Recent Articles & Reviews by Justin Gibbons

Tortured by memories of all-day thrashings of Risk as a young child by his older brother, Justin Gibbons learned to overcome gaming nightmares and embrace  the community of card board.  Justin tried a few doses of Settlers of Catan on his road to recovery. This flung him down the rabbit-hole of modern-day board gaming. Now it is Justin's wallet that is taking the thrashings. He likes his Euros crunchy and heavy, with point salads on the side.  Most recently his mind has opened to thematic games, sometimes with a heavy helping of plastic minis.

Favorite games; Trickerion, Kanban, Gloomhaven, Lisboa, Pillars of the Earth, Rising Sun, Stone Age and Cthulhu:Death May Die.
