Digital Dungeons & Dragons

I stumbled on this story today: D&D Beyond

Top 5 Unplayed Board Games in My Collection

FACT: People love lists, consistency and alliteration.

Wonder Woman Review

Wonder Woman

Tom Awesome’s Review Score: 9

What would happen if you paired a noble Amazon with a thief, a criminal and a murderer and tasked them with saving the world?
