I am a bit of a board game nut, so I wanted to start a thread discussing some of my favorites. I want to know what you play, and why - the more games I get to try out, the happier I am! My shelves downstairs in the game room are starting to get a little crowded, haha.

Some of my top favorites are: Victorian Masterminds, DC Deck Builder, Takenoko, Splendor, Azul, Century...the list could go on for pages, but I'll truncate it there.

What are YOU playing?

What's your favorite film in the MCU? Favorite character?

Personally, I love the majority of them and it makes it difficult to pick just one. As excited as I am to see Endgame and the conclusion of 10 years of films, I also hate goodbyes, lol. I've grown attached to the characters and the actors who have played them.

I think, as a film, Winter Soldier may be the best put together. But from a pure action and enjoyment standpoint, I really love The Avengers.

So, I'm a total Star Wars nerd and if it says Star Wars, I need to see it at least once. Anyone else hyped, or feeling especially "meh" about it?I usually go see this stuff with my Dad, so it's always a good excuse to spend some time together - but this Friday I'm going to cut out and see Deadpool 2 instead of seeing Solo opening day. Chances are that no matter what I see this weekend, it's going to be insanely busy.What about you guys?

As much as it pains me to admit it, I’ve been out of college for awhile now - 10 years in April, to be precise. Still, I have fond memories of Ren Faire, campus life, apartment living, and a community of close friends. The less fond memories include apartment living (two sides to every coin!), tuition, and those sleepless nights of crunchtime because I forgot about (or procrastinated on, let’s be real here) a paper that was due the next day.

I did some crazy fun stuff in college&h...

St. Patrick's Day is almost here! I thought I'd celebrate by sharing some of my favorite Dreams, wallpapers, and skins from WinCustomize. There aren't a ton of shamrocks and leprechauns specifically, so I tried to keep the heart of the holiday in my mind as I selected these. You'll see Irish landscapes, a lot of green, and everyone's favorite beverage of choice for St. Patrick's day, too.

 

What's better than the ruins of a castle beside the sea? Maybe a fully functional castle besid...

The Recap

All you really need to know is that some n00b decided to build a PC (pssst, that n00b is me!) and here’s the conclusion of the grand adventure! If you missed Part 1, you can read it here. 

The Build

First things first: we cleared the living room. This meant rolling up my rug to reduce any potential for static, vacuuming the floor well to make sure it was clean, and locking my cat Miza up in my bedroom (who did NOT appreciate that, by the way). Once we got everything...

The Intro

Let me start with a very, very important disclaimer:

I hate computers.

Well, more specifically, computers hate me. Within a week of joining the team here at Stardock, the guys in IT already knew my name and had to come down to fix computer issues multiple times. I also had a motherboard burst into flames on me once (STILL trying to figure that one out) and smoked a power supply (these occurred within months of each other), so I’m pretty sure our PC overlords have it out ...
