Star Wars Game Day {Review}

It’s no secret: we’re a family of geeks and gamers. Star Wars is kind of a thing in our house, so when Wonder Forge Games asked if I’d like to review their latest Star Wars themed board games, I immediately put “Star Wars Game Day” on the calendar.

Considering I was kinda busy trying to get everybody to their activities at that point, and frantically clicking “approve” on comments to yesterday’s interview with Jenni James (BTW – you have until Friday to enter to win a signed copy of Beauty and the Beast!), I didn’t. Drop everything, that is. I did check out the Disney Infinity trailer this morning though, and it looks pretty interesting…nothing really innovative here, but still worth a second look when the game comes out in June.
