Graphic Reviews: Sexcastle

Sexcastle As I’ve mentioned previously in my review of Tomboy, I’ve never been in the “traditional girly” camp. When other girls my age were talking about fashion, make-up and crafting, I wanted to go play around with archery, sword fighting and adventuring. I’ve learned to get over my dislike of […]

Con Talk: Denver ComicCon 2016 Day 3 – Cait

Denver ComicCon 2016 Day 3 Cait For my final day of my very first Denver Comic Con, I managed to catch two very educational panels that helped me to learn a lot about graphic novels. While I’ve been reviewing them for over a year now in my segment Graphic Reviews, […]

Con Talk: Denver ComicCon 2016 Day 2 – Kyle

Boxed Culture: Gamefest 2016 1

Every year I volunteer for an event called Starfest. I work Hospitality, which is a fancy way of saying”we check wristbands.” The best part for me is when I get stationed to check wristbands in front of the Gamefest room. Gamefest is my favorite part of Starfest. It is all […]

Boxed Culture: The Fulfillment-en-ing

Kickstarter is a very strange beast. People use it to help fund passions they have. Companies use it as a medium to measure demand for potentially risky endeavors. Some organizations even use it to promise the future and most of them even follow through! About a year ago I got […]

Boxed Culture: Way Too Mini

A while back one of my best board gaming buddies moved to South Korea. I was very sad to see him go because he was the one who would learn the most random obscure games with me. He was also the one who was my gaming companion since I started gaming […]

Boxed Culture: Shady Dealings

This sounds like a good title for a segment on a hidden traitor, euro game but unfortunately it is far less fun than that. We are currently in the midst of another board game company acting shady on Kickstarter and I have hit a point of no return. When a […]

Boxed Culture: DCC 2015 and Mr. B Games 1

One of my favorite parts about going to conventions is the exhibition halls. They allow for most individuals, companies or organizations to set up a booth. This is great with small companies because you get to interacted with their whole staff. The more cons I attend the more I am learning […]
