I’ve decided to add a new monthly feature to Oh Joy(stick)! Without further adieu, here’s a roundup of all of my favorite things from the month of March.
Best Thing I Read:
Fables, Vol. 1 by Bill Willingham – I spent most of last month reacquainting myself with various graphic novels and comic books. Fables was, above and beyond, my favorite. Honorable Mention: Chew, Vol. 1 by John Layman.
Best Thing I Played (video game):
Assassin’s Creed II by Ubisoft – I’m glad I purchased Assassin’s Creed II before I played much of the first Assassin’s Creed. Last month, I finally dusted off my copy of Assassin’s Creed and beat it. I was , quite possibly, the most tedious games I have ever played. I moved ahead with Assassin’s Creed II based on the reassurance from a friend that the two games are like night and day. I’m so glad I did!
Best Thing I Played (tabletop):
Dead of Winter by Plaid Hat Games – One of my favorite new additions to my board game collection. This game is fun and suspenseful. Furthermore, I love the added element that the Crossroad cards add to the game.
