Nerds Gotta Play: Betrayal at House on the Hill

Not only do I love video games, I’m also a huge fan of board games and table top games. My all time favorite game right now – and it’s very appropriate for Halloween time – is a co-op of sorts that focuses on a team entering a creepy old house. It’s called Betrayal at House on the Hill, and there are literally 100 ways to play.

The Fate of the Furious

I saw this movie on Sunday and am still processing it. Wow. It was phenomenal and I can not get over any of it. Also, I’m grateful to the boyfriend who suggested we go early to avoid crowds; there were 2 other couples in the theatre with us, and the ones that sat in the same row as us were as excited as we were, so it felt great to see it then.

I’m really excited about this movie but I have to tell you right now, there will be spoilers strewn throughout this article, so consider this your…

The Bounty Hunter Code

Fangirls, I love Boba Fett. I know he’s a bit overrated, and he isn’t down doing too much in the movies, but I love him. I think he’s a neat character who the extended universe has give a lot of life to (and even if Disney made EU not matter anymore, they’re doing stuff about him). The Bounty Hunter Code is a book that isn’t about him, but is designed around people’s love of Boba Fett; it has a mythosaur skull on both the front and back covers, and his Bounty Hunter patch on the binding. That is because this book is assumed to have been bound by him, and was found in Slave 1 (his ship). It includes annotation from Boba, Greedo, and some other bounty hunters who have had their hands on this text some way or another.

Battling Boy Book One by Paul Pope

First up, can we just appreciate all that alliteration? Okay, thanks. Awhile back, the boy and I went to our friends Marty & Sam’s apartment. There, we had a lovely evening playing Cards Against Humanity and hanging out. Since they know our roommates are leaving soon and we don’t have a ton of stuff, they graciously have us some helpful kitchen items (pie plates, aprons, etc) along with a slew of books. They gave us things that they were planning on donating, so they didn’t take much of a loss because of it. But we grabbed a ton of their stuff because “free books” is my favorite phrase, and I didn’t have my own pie plate. One of the books we got was Battling Boy, and it was the first of the comics from them that we received. I blindly reached into the trunk one night for a book to read, and out it came.
