box for the game Dixit


By Jean-Louis Roubira
Rated by Courtney S

I am a decidedly un-strategic tabletop game player. I’ve been known to choose my moves based on how fun they seem, or how much of a chain reaction I can cause, or (quite frequently) because the art on that particular card is interesting. Dixit is a game designed for people who revel in cards with interesting art on them. There are several flavors and versions of Dixit, but all of them come with a deck of large cards, each depicting a surreal, beautiful and perplexing story of its own.

This book by Canadian author Moira Young stands out in the crop of dystopian/post-apocalyptic fiction.  The action-packed storyline throws many obstacles and adventures ahead of our protagonist Saba.

Katlyn Cowpland's latest solo project, Cheery, may be just a couple of years old (officially launched in the spring of 2021), but it is the culmination of more than a decade's worth of inspired songwriting and performing.

Til Willis began performing in 1992, at the remarkable age of just twelve. Since then, he’s produced an expansive catalog of music, including fifteen studio albums, two live albums, and five EPs. Til’s bandmates, known as Erratic Cowboy, both compliment and enhance Til’s well-seasoned songwriting, and have added their own dynamic energy to his albums and live shows since 2012. With November’s release, “Grinding of the Stars,” Til Willis & Erratic Cowboy show no signs of slowing down.
