Ambient Music for the Weekends

After my regular routine before bed, I turn on my iPad (or when I don’t have it, my iPhone) and play a set of ambient music that goes on loop for the rest of the evening. I don’t know about you, but listening to repetitive ambient sounds while in bed really helps me. And it’s […]

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is that single player MMO you can relax with

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a fast-paced new franchise by Todd McFarlane and RA Salvatore. As a 30-something guy on the brink of stepping into married life, I can’t thank the gaming industry more for releases such as this. If it’s one thing about the gaming industry that excites me, it’s the fact that for […]

Ticket to Ride Pocket is FREE. Grab it now!

Here at Forevergeek, we regularly try to paint a picture of the multitudinous aspects of geekiness. From science fiction to video gaming, from comics to cosplay. Sometimes, these different paths of geekdom coincide into a central nexus making things so much more fun to report. In this case, it’s when board games and video games […]

Ascension Wedding Proposal

The popular deck building game, Ascension is no stranger at Forevergeek. So when we fond out that a certain Alan Gerding planned an Ascension Wedding Proposal to his girlfriend Crystol Shelton, we were absolutely delighted. Alan contacted Justin Gary’s crew asking for help. He wanted to do an elaborate wedding proposal during one of their […]

Arkham Horror Open Beta for the PC: Sign up now!

A couple of days ago I found a link to a video of a college student who was recreating the popular Arkham Horror board game for the PC. It wasn’t an official release by Fantasy Flight Games, but rather a graduation requirement for school. Her plan seems to be pretty solid. Since this is a […]

Patima’s iPhone 4s underwater case goes down to 300 meters

To the SCUBA geeks out there, you might be a tad excited to know that Patima has released a “pro level” underwater housing for Apple’s iPhone 4s. Similar in construction to most cases, Patima’s casing is made of stainless steel and aluminum making it negatively buoyant. The case comes with four buttons, three to interact […]

INCEPTION: The (UNOFFICIAL) Card Game

Inception has made its mark as one of the most thought provoking films ever made in recent history. What surprises me is that Inception’s IP isn’t being milked for what it’s worth. Call it respect for the franchise or something much deeper. I don’t know. Nonetheless, when I read about a card game based on […]

Anyone remember MAD Magazine: The Board Game?

The famous “green bill” which wasn’t playable in-game but was really fun to poke around with. Over the holidays I was able to unearth an old copy of MAD Magazine: The Board Game. I remember the best moments: post-dinner game night with my family and lunch breaks at school. I’d lug this huge board game […]

Battleship Galaxies: A classic game with a futuristic twist

I got what I wanted for Christmas. I’ve always been curious about a 2011 re-issue of Battleship but my mind was blown when Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast took the classic game I used to play when I was a kid and added a lot more depth into a foray in outer space. Battleship […]

XBOX 360 Case Mod: Marine Nano Reef

We’ve seen case mods for the XBOX 360 everywhere. From turning the whole console portable, to injecting it with a nitro-cooler, to paint jobs that are just so crazy-awesome. This, however caught my eye as a marine enthusiast and diver: a total conversion of an XBOX 360 into a nano-reef. Yep, that porcelain crab you […]

7 Wonders: The Board Game

This post is just about two years late. Yep. That’s how long it took me to finally grab a copy of 7 Wonders, easily one of the most epic board games in recent history. Released last year, 7 Wonders has already won a Cannes Jury Prize alongside 28 other awards. I’ve been playing this card […]

Ascension: Return of the Fallen Expansion now on iOS

A couple of weeks ago I interviewed Justin Gary of Gary Games — better known as one of the Magic Pro-Tour players who founded the highly addicting deck building game, Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer. In this interview he hinted of an iOS version of the first expansion, Return of the Fallen due soon. And […]

Car of the future is a huge smartphone

For the past several years we’ve seen concept cars rolled out by the Americans, Europeans and Japanese. From designs inspired by the Batmobile and Tron, these cars embodied the “sleek” design of the future making me wonder how every civilian will be driving a car that looks like something straight out from a movie. Now […]

Aquamarine HD: Absolutely Stunning

The holiday sales are really good for discovering titles that have gotten pushed down through time from the iTunes App Store best seller list. Aquamarine HD is one of them. Released September of this year, Aquamarine HD was made available for free for a limited time which prompted its rise to the top downloaded game […]

Brawl: The Card-Based Boxing Game

There’s a new game out for iOS and it’s called Brawl. The game made it to my radar for two reasons — first because it was a free release and secondly, it was a card-based boxing game. I’m a huge fan of deck building games like Ascension, Dominion and 7 Wonders so albeit this one […]

We are truly living in the age of tomorrow.

As technology gets even better, science fiction such as Star Trek serve as pegs for the reality. […]

Bang! The Bullet gets EPIC update for iOS

Many weeks ago we reviewed Bang! The Bullet. This app never made it to the top list of Apple apps for download but among a huge niche of board game geeks, Bang! is definite favorite. Recently, Palzoun & SpinVector released a much needed update that not only incudes the Dodge City Expansion set, it also […]
