Hello there, readers! We apologize for the lack of content in the last few weeks. Things have been rough in the I:T household but things are finally coming back together. We had the honor of featuring a guest post by Daekon about the Dread RPG (not a new game, but worth reading about!) and have some more work coming in the future in the way of reviews. Here is your Quick News for the past week.

What We’re Playing

  • We did some final playtesting of a game that will be hitting Kickstarter towards the end of the month! It is very entertaining, so be watching for that review on July 27th!
  • While a lot of our time recently has been taken up with personal life things, creativity struck the I:T office and Kae and Raine are preparing for a cosplay event next weekend. We’ll make sure that photos end up here and on social media for that!
  • We are making final preparations for Gen Con and are excited to be taking a 3rd member with us this year, Devon! We will share more about our con plans soon. It is going to be a tight trip for us, so if you are feeling generous and would like to help us out, please consider checking out our GoFundMe for this year’s Gen Con trip!

Thank you all for your patience and for sticking around! Next week you can expect to see a review for Battle of Red Cliffs by Sunrise Tornado Game Studio. As long as time allows, there should also be some gaming accessory reviews going up by way of video, so be watching for those as well! Have a great weekend, and as always; happy gaming!
