Grogheads Reviews: Stirring Abyss!

stirring

Stirring Abyss is a squad level, turn based, survival-horror-exploration game developed by Sleeping Sentry and distributed by Slitherine/Matrix.  This review is based on more than 21 hours of play.  I was given a review copy, but then purchased my own copy so I could continue playing my game without restarting from the beta version.  Yes, the game was so good that I shelled out retail price so my save game would not be lost.

Grogheads First impressions: Fleet Commander Nimitz Update!

pic1095650

Fleet Commander Nimitz is a solo, strategic level wargame from DVG Games originally published in December, 2014.  The player takes command of all Allied forces in the Pacific starting in January, 1942 against Imperial Japan.  There are four scenarios within Fleet Commander Nimitz: 1942; 1943; 1944; and 1945.  Players can do better than Nimitz and the allied forces did historically, or the player can lose and be replaced.  You can also play a linked campaign starting in January 1942 and ending in 1945.

Grogheads Zombie Survival Guide – The Generation Gap

apocalypse grid 721 420 80 s c1

As if a pandemic, global recession, and race riots weren’t enough to make 2020 a joyful year, mommy nature sent a hurricane into the east coast and up the I95 corridor to wreak havoc in my neck of the woods.  This wasn’t a monster storm.  It only rained for a few hours. But it brought high winds that dropped trees and tossed debris like beads during Mardi Gras.  It caught my local power authority off guard and for over a week after the storm, many remained without power.  Mine was out for 4 days.  This also happened in the middle of a heat wave.  Personally, I can rough it without power just fine, but it is tough on my family.  They are quite fond of everything that has a plug.  It was also hard on my 13 year old pug.  That breed has trouble breathing under ideal conditions.  Due to her advanced age and a myriad of health problems which would garner lots of street cred at an assisted living facility dinner table, she went into respiratory distress and spent a night on oxygen at the emergency vet.  They felt her symptoms were so severe and indicative of enough health problems that we talked about putting her down.  The happy ending was that our power came back, AC was restored and she hacks and coughs just like before the storm.

Strategic Command WW1 (WW1) is a strategic level wargame encompassing all primary theaters of World War 1.  WW1 is developed by Fury Software, primarily by Hubert Cater and Bill Runacre and distributed by Slitherine/Matrix.  I purchased WW1 using the exclusive Grogheads discount offer upon release.  This review is based on twenty plus hours of play including completing the 1914 core campaign.
