With a young daughter and son, a game about fairies and goblins is always welcome in the Fairway household.

This week, Fairway picks the game up again and writes the review that should have been written years ago.
Grab your blanket and pillow. Rest your head down. Fairway takes a look at the Kickstarter game, Project Dreamscape, by Undine Studios. Project Dreamscape is a one- to four-player, card chaining, set collection game that puts players in charge of a somewhat freaky lab attempting to control the sleeping minds of the research participants. Find out if Fairway is now afraid of the night!
Fairway does have a degree in computer science, but was nothing more than a script kiddie aimlessly trying to hack the Gibson. Well, it might not be the Gibson, but check out whether Fairway causes havoc at NOAA and mass transit as he previews the upcoming Kickstarter, Super Hack Override, by Weird Giraffe Games.
Gather ’round and hear Fairway tell his tale of battling factions of elves and dragons and orcs and men. In this preview, Fairway takes a quick look at Pages of War: M.O.D.E by Sanjae Duncan and J. Kloud Entertainment and coming to Kickstarter. What can possibly go wrong when Fairway is a bard?

Fairway picks up another Kickstarter preview where he’s the master of colorful dragon hatching operation. In the words of the famous They Might Be Giants: 🎶 Roy G.
