Around Indy: Cards Against Humanity with Girls Pint Out

I have to admit, I was nervous when I got the Facebook invite from Girls Pint Out, an all female craft beer appreciation group,  to play Cards Against Humanity at New Day Meadery in Fountain Square. I love Cards Against Humanity as much as the next awful person, but playing in public?


Gamers: Can’t We All Just Get Along?

Over the past several months I’ve found myself being pulled more into gaming. I had about a ten-year hiatus from video games. School, work, and derby had monopolized my time. But now that I’ve learned to manage my time better, I’m finding myself with time to enjoy this hobby again. Claire also


Pure Geekery Paints the Town Red: Arsenal Game Room

For those of you who don’t know, Claire and I are both really into the Shop Local movement. We love the kind of environment and service you can only really get in a locally owned shop. So when our friend and teammate AdRock posted about Arsenal Game Room  on our Facebook page we


What We’re Up To: March

You’ve been reading about our interests for a few months now. But so much of what we’re into never makes it to the site. We’re going to start posting a brief overview of what we’re doing at the beginning of every month. Let us know what you have going on this month


What Makes a Gamer?

I’ve been thinking a great deal lately about what it means to be a gamer. I’ve started playing more games lately, and spending a considerable amount of time doing so. I use Fitocracy because I love the “leveling up” aspect. I use EpicWin as my to-do list for the same reason. I


5 on Friday: Valentine’s Day Gifts for Geek Girls

Flowers and chocolate, while appreciated, lack a bit of thought. It’s something you can swing by the drugstore on the way home and pick up. If you really want to make an impression on the geek girl in your life, try some of these options. Most of these come from various Etsy


Project time: Whiteboard Table

I have this need to reinvent myself with the seasons. There’s something about the world changing outside that makes me want to evolve inside as well. Wardrobe, hobbies, and, at the moment, my apartment. (Although, if anyone has suggestions for learning archery, I’m all ears. It’s one of my spring/summer goals to


Dungeons and Dragons: Choosing a Paragon Path

We’ve made it to level 11! Which means it is time to level up and choose a paragon path. I finally have my own set of D&D Books, so I was able to take my time and read as I was leveling up this time, instead of rushing through it and just picking stuff. I


Game Night: Cards Against Humanity

You saw my costume from the Apocalypse Party last week, but what did we do at said party? Game of course (and watch The Fifth Element)! There were several games to choose from but we ended up playing Cards Against Humanity. Because if the world is ending, you want to make sure


Dungeons and Dragons: Absolute Silliness

Usually I’d have a post describing where we were in our quest, and what I have learned about my character and how the game is played. I also don’t usually offer to help taste test my friend Claire’s cranberry-orange infused vodka (which is very good for what it’s worth). I’ve also started playing Star Wars the Old
