Mystery Bento

Devoid of any theme or logic, this 4-game Bento is a wild and crazy free-for-all! What games are in it? Who knows! But there will be four of them!

August 2018 - Gears

A game’s rules are called “mechanics” because they are an interconnected engine of parts. When one piece moves, whether the player realizes it or not, a chain of other parts move in reaction. It should be no surprise that engines and machines are also popular game themes and elements. After all, how do you have game mechanics without Gears

July 2018 - Out of this World

Do you ever stare up at the skies and wonder what’s out there? Ever wonder what, or who, might be staring back? This month celebrates games that wondered what is out there, the adventures and opportunities, the potential for the future and threats to the present. All of the games in this month’s box are Out of this World.

June 2018 - Art & Anarchy

Make good art, make good money. Being an artist should be as simple as that, right? Unfortunately, the life of an artist is a topsy-turvy road of starvation and success, partnerships and betrayals, and often more business than creation. Their tumultuous existence inspired this month’s theme, Art & Anarchy!

April 2018 - Twisted Creatures

I’m a big fan of monster movies, the main reason being how much variety there is in the genre. There’s horror, of course, but even straight up scary movies have different types; like psychological horror or body horror. Movie monsters are often separated by subgenres, and this month’s games definitely capture that idea. To paraphrase a parody of prolific horror film auteur M. Night Shyamalan, what a Twisted Creature!

March 2018 - Microscopic

Struggles don’t need to take place on a massive stage. Nonstop battles wage on within everyday objects (and even your own body) that determine your future, and you can’t even perceive them without powerful equipment. As this month’s games illustrate, a game can be epic even if it is MICROSCOPIC!

February 2018 - Spin Off

In media, there are sequels: continuations of a story, a setting, or character’s life. In games, there are expansions – additional content that enhances the original. But exclusive to board games is the standalone expansion... games that can be played on their own or combined with the base game for different experiences!

December 2017 - Fun in the Sun

There is a classic episode of GI Joe, in which Dusty the desert trooper and another Joe (I want to say Recondo) were sitting on a sand dune. The sweaty other Joe asked Dusty how he can stand this heat. Dusty - lying comfortably in the sand - says: “Just stay still and think cool thoughts.” That advice can be flipped and used to get through a cold, grey winter. Just break out any of this month's games and imagine you're having FUN IN THE SUN!

You can’t truly know a person until you’ve worked a mile in their shoes, but there are only so many professions any one of us can work in our lifetime. Luckily there are games that simulate the experience of careers both exciting or everyday. When you play a good job simulator, you really feel like you’re working 9 to 5!
