The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth – There and Back Again, E-Reader Edition

by Mr. Saint When, as a child, I had decided I outgrew Goosebumps and the Animorphs series, the first “grown-up” book I can remember falling in love with was J. R. R.

Wakening Lair

By: Mr. Saint with input from Mrs. Saint Note: Review originally published on BGG September 2018. Gen Con 2018 was our first Gen Con. It was the Mrs.’s first gaming convention ever.
