Date Fri, April 27 2018

So you’re a fan of Stranger Things, kitschy things, and card games — have you met the Stranger Things Eggo Card Game? I’ve not had a chance to play this game twice.

While looking for the name and rules of another game (Blind Man’s Bluff/Indian Poker), I came across the Head’s Up app. Were I a more religious watcher of Ellen, I might have recognized the game from the segment on her show. Regardless, it looked fun, and I put it aside until I had time to […]
