Welcome to JohnHQLD

Welcome to JohnHQLD.com! I’m JohnHQLD, and this is my little corner of the internet. Hopefully, you will come and join us as we share our love of gaming.

Mainly I will be talking about things that catch my interest, primarily in gaming. Board Games, Video Games, Puzzles – I don’t mind. As long as we are all having fun, that’s all I worry about.

If there is anything you would like to discuss or would like my thoughts on, leave me a note on the Facebook page, or @JohnHQLD me on Twitter or Instagram! Follow me on Instagram if you also want to see lots of pics of our pets as well 🙂

NVIDIA 3000 Series Laptops defines Buyer Beware Generation

Last Week’s Gaming

It’s Monday, so time for Last Weeks Gaming! I ended up getting the Platinum for Immortals, we played the next session of Clank!

It was a busy week, but it was a great round of gaming!

Last Week’s Gaming

Another week, another round up of last week’s gaming! Between working on a few things for the site and an… interesting work week, I had a strange gaming week. It was a lot of fun, but I played a lot of games I had previously reviewed! What were they? Only one way to find out!

So Wednesday I mentioned Castles of Mad King Ludwig Collector’s Edition is on Kickstarter next week. Today I review the original game to give you an idea of if you may be interested! This Bezier Games staple is a lot of fun, but it’s not for everyone. It’s not as hard to get your head around as you may think though!
