We Can Stop Digging, Watson

Awhile ago, I reviewed Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective. Well, if you hadn’t enough of my complaining about the original game, my family and I have finally gotten through the expansion Jack the Ripper and West End Adventures. If you want a short, sweet summary...

A Dewdrop in the Valley

Well, we’re back. And just in time for the holidays! So expect us to be gone just as quickly! To be clear, I’m blaming Kait entirely for this. There’s no reason for her not to still be doing her book reviews. It’s not like...
