January 16 – January 22

Now we’re getting back into the swing of things. This is a good-looking week. My wishlist expanded quite a bit just while researching the list. Don’t worry.

Bloodborne: The Card Game, Mechs vs. Minions, Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition, Fabled Fruits, Live From rabbitcon and More!
Welcome to 2017! This week there are a grand total of fifteen games scheduled, so rather than torture everyone with picking a handful of indie games nobody heard of yet, we’re going to sell out and look to the year ahead.
And so we come to the end of Danopian December, and of the year more generally. It's been pun, so let's wrap up with Claw and Feathers.
