- I buy everything I review. No exceptions.
- Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org (that’s a ZERO in there.)
- I archive all of my reviews at RPGgeek. I believe that its association with BGG means it has the best chance to survive the transitory nature of the Internet.

Just discovered your site and I love it. The archives will be giving me ideas for month. Will you be running any games at or during Gen Con this year?
Sadly, no. It’s a Family Con, so I play what my kids want to play.
Hi Bryce, I really enjoy your reviews! I wanted to ask you, what are the retro-clone systems you are currently playing/have played/rate the most? I’m a 2nd ed guy, and with this whole OSR movement, suddenly there is a treasure trove of interesting modules out there. Since I never played the older editions, I don’t have a strong affinity for a particular iteration. I wanted to ask you for your recommendation: would I get the most out of picking three separate clones – one for OD&D, one for BD&D and one for AD&D 1st ed? Or could I kill 3 birds with one stone with something like Castles & Crusades? Also, I’d like to draw your attention to this ruleset: http://rolesrules.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/new-52-pages-draft-download.html
I played it in a convention with the guy who made it, and really enjoyed it. You might find it interesting. All the best, and keep these reviews coming!
52 is pretty cool.
I like Basic D&D/Magenta the best, but, in actuality, I like rules light systems and tend to run everything the same way anyway. Black Hack, Basic, and 5e are what I use the most these days, depending on how much I have to market. Everything but 4 is pretty much the same anyway, except for the power curve.
Hi, Bryce. Is there a reason you don’t link to product purchase pages in your reviews? I always find myself futilely clicking the thumbnail and then combing through Google.
Thank you so much for your reviews. I really appreciate you wading through the muck to find us gold nuggets.
Dig your site. Was even mentioned in a review once!
Didn’t see an email for you, but what happened to The Throne of the Gods review? Email has a broken link and search doesn’t show it. Hope all is well!
email is the second bullet, above, I’ve since bolded it.
I screwed up. Throne of the Gods should pop on Wednesday.
Don’t forget the About Bryce … thread.
You went nuclear without any dialogue, that’s cowardly.
That’s not nuclear. Nuclear is different. This is a ‘Naughty Boy’. Bigotry is NoNo.
CIDR based on ARIN, RIPE, etc org records is step 2.
Hey Bryce, here’s the ping you requested.
I thought I already left one but I don’t see it now. Oh well!
Bryce, thought you and the fans here would enjoy this. A lot of territory you have gone over….
Hi Bryce, love the site, its very handy when trying to pick from all the OSR adventure options out there. Just curious as to why Vodafone Ireland specifically is blocked?
According to Blazing Saddles, everyone is welcome, except the Irish.
Where are your own created OSR adventures?
Do you pick all the adventures you review personally, or is there a way to solicit a review?

Keep in mind though that some folks have requested stuff that he’s never reviewed such as Lost City of Barakus, just to name one.
