“Call me, Fairway.” That’s a paraphrase of the famous first line from Moby Dick. It’s apropos since, in today’s preview, Fairway plays as Captain Ahab (Ishmael) against his white whales in a hunt to the death in Leviathan, a two-player, microgame currently on Kickstarter.

“Can you hear me now?” “Can you hear me now?” Today, Fairway picks up an abstract strategy game that the Verizon guy can love, Nodes. See if Fairway can find a signal in the middle of a wide open space or whether his opponent’s communication systems were better.
For fans of the original The Captain is Dead, it should come as no surprise that the Captain is still dead.

It’s not Atkins v. South Beach. This fight is a serious one: vegetables v. meat. Broccoli v. Bacon. Life v. Death. Today, Fairway picks up Foodfighters by Kids Table Board Gaming and designers Josh Cappel and Helaina Cappel. Originally funded on Kickstarter, Fairway snagged this one up from his friendly local game shop.
