Look, we all think we’re the Smartest Man in the World, but according to Greg Proops, there’s only one, and it’s him. Proops’ motto is that he is totally smarter than you, and if you don’t believe him then just listen to his podcast — sorry, “proopcast” — to have it proven to you in painful detail. Proops is a master of improv and his comedy is high energy.

Growing up, one of my favorite board games in the world was Mousetrap. The bright colors, the mad, controlled chaos of kinetic energy: there’s a reason it’s been around as long as it has. But the game, designed by Rube Goldberg did have one caveat. It thought too small. Enter Mark Perez.

Perez has been operating the Life-Sized Mousetrap for a number of years now, and a thing like this requires constant upkeep. That’s Read More

Pig Farmer Games is a company for those of us who’d rather be watching horror movies than virtually anything else.

With titles like Splatter Camp, Babysitter Bloodbath, Sanitarium Massacre, and Minotaur, these guys are scratching right where we itch. (Not too deep, though, thankfully.)
