My top 5 video game influences

Great experiences make for fond memories; likewise, what you once enjoyed may be the reason you enjoy certain things you still enjoy to this day. I used to be video gamer first, board gamer second; the roles have reversed, but there’s still a lot to learn from what I liked in my video games backt then and what I like in board games today.

Stidjen’s addendum – Heroes of Terrinoth edition

Stidjens Addendum I Heroes of Terrinoth

When you’re driving in your plain car you can easily imagine how quickly a Ferrari would get you from A to B; when you’re washing dishes by hand you wish you had a dishwasher to take all this work out of your hands – literally. Seeing something, knowing something, also means seeing opportunities to improve. I decided to try applying this to board games. Welcome to Stidjen’s Addendum – Heroes of Terrinoth edition.

This used to be a problem for solo gamers, until last year, when Portal Dragon gave us Palm Island Continue reading Palm Island – a solo review

Friday Stidjen Plays Solo 1

Sometimes driftwood, sometimes sea shells, but most of the time it’s those useless – and painful, if you’re not careful – jellyfish. Until today! Is that… a man? He is still alive!

Gaia Project – a solo (Automa) review


There is only earth, and we are the only sentient species in the universe. Good lord, how ignorant we used to be! We are but a small speck in an infinitely large cosmos, and a species that barely makes a dent in said cosmos. If we, as a species, want to be more than that, we have to venture out, expand and explore. Henceforth, our efforts shall be named: the Gaia Project.
