The Storymatic is simply a box of story prompts. But that’s a very powerful thing in the hands of some creative gamers.
I have a ridiculous backlog of things that need to be reviewed. So today I will be doing nothing but reviewing things. We’ll see how many I can get to. I’ll also be talking about the things I’m reviewing at the Robot Viking Twitter account, if you want to join in. First review, coming up […]
Halloween is my favorite time of the year. I seriously get that old Andy Williams tune, “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” going in my head, but with macabre lyrics. On Halloween night, kids will be out getting their annual candy haul. I’ll be doling the sweets out too, but I also dig through […]
I’m going to step back for a minute from being a publisher and just be a fellow gamer. February of this year my doctor told me that I was pre-diabetic. Thanks to my wonderful girlfriend, I’ve managed to beat it and have lost about 40 pounds of weight. About a month ago, my doctor told […]

You may have noticed some posts this weekend from freelance writer Tim Barribeau. While Robot Viking could not attend Gen Con in person this year, Tim was covering it for io9.com, and he was awesome enough (and Annalee at io9 was awesome enough to arrange) to provide us with some direct coverage of new games […]
Chris Kluwe is the punter for the Minnesota Vikings with a penchant for pinning opponents deep in their own zone. He’s also widely known for playing World of Warcraft, and it turns out he’s a serious tabletop gamer as well. It’s relatively rare that the pro sports and gaming worlds intersect, so I thought it […]
Hello Vikings. The site will be taking a brief hiatus this week for a bit of summertime R&R. We’ll be back next week with all manner of gaming awesomeness. Hope you’re enjoying your summer vacations!
There are five Commander decks to choose from, and at $30 each, you might not be able to grab all of them. Here’s a brief analysis of each deck, what style of play it suits and a few basic suggestions for customizing it.
So, I ended up getting quite sick (I suspect food poisoning of some kind) Saturday night at Origins, missed all of Sunday at the con and had to stay an extra day in my hotel because I was in no shape to drive the five hours home. I still have a lot of cool stuff […]
We’re here at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, OH checking out all the hot games, new expansions to old games, rereleases of really old games, massive piles of dice, acres of gaming tables and more.
