Medicine

I recently have been listening to this podcast called Healing Justice (https://www.healingjustice.org/) which talks about how can we center healing in our social change movements. The host, Kate Werning, talks to different activists and organizers about their work and their healing practices through their work. I find this to be very important as I have … Continue reading

The Board Game Workshop, Episode 29

Well… I am officially a contributor on a podcast! I have been thinking on and off about starting a podcast or trying to be on a podcast, but nothing really surfaced for me. This is due to time, the need for a host or partner, and the lack of equipment and skills in audio recording/editing. … Continue reading

Finding out the Truth

When I accept books or board games to review, I do a small amount of preliminary research to see if the game, book, author, designer, publisher, etc. aligns with the values and goals of my blog. Usually I do not find much out, even in this day and age when it seems to be okay … Continue reading

Polarization

With every issue big and small, there tends to be an extreme polarization within a community. Especially in the United States, where we seem to thrive on polarization! Just take a look at our political system with its ‘Us vs. Them’ and ‘You’re with Us or Against Us’ mentality. There is no room for anything … Continue reading

Book Review: The Last Day of Captain Lincoln by EXO Books

I received a free e-book copy in exchange for an open and honest review. This novella is unique. One that has made me think more philosophically about life and death than any other book I have read this year. The Last Day of Captain Lincoln chronicles the final day that the main character, Captain Lincoln, … Continue reading

Waka Tanka: A Response to Bruno Faidutti

I wrote a post last month about appropriation and amalgamation of indigenous cultures to use as board game themes. A short while after, I saw a new game, being brought to the United States by Cool Mini or Not, designed by Bruno Faidutti, Waka Tanka. This is a small bluffing card game with some sort … Continue reading

Book Review: Loving vs. Virginia by Patricia Hruby Powell

Disclaimer: I received an e-copy of this novel in exchange for an open and honest review. This book has a special place for me in my heart. I am a product of an interracial marriage and my own marriage is interracial as well. When I think about it, that 50 years ago, the relationships that … Continue reading

Back to School: 4 Books for Educators

Summer vacation is almost over and school is almost back in session. As someone who works in Higher Education, we are frantically preparing for students to return to campus and start a new academic semester. Each year, I look at different academic books, articles, and pedagogies that may help me become more of a liberation-focused … Continue reading

Lovecraft and Cthulhu: Stop It

Lovecraft. Just stop it. I have heard pretty much every board game content creator I watch / listen to lament about how much Cthulhu is in the hobby. “Not another Cthulhu game” had become a refrain when talking about the upcoming releases. Even Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) released an expansion for their card game Sash … Continue reading
