There are very few board games that I have the patience to play. Too many games require
hours upon hours of my precious time! So when my friend Joseph from Binary Cocoa
approached me with Straight 4, I was definitely skeptical…but my skepticism was short-lived.
THIS game is not too long, instructions are simple, yet it contains just the right amount of
complexity to keep you playing over and over again.
The game plays like this; Each player picks a set of four green or white marbles. Decide who
goes first. Then, take turns placing their marble pieces on the game mat in an attempt to have
their 4 pieces in a straight line. If, after initial placement no one is winning, each player takes
turns moving their pieces along any lines. THIS is where it gets interesting. Each player must
balance their offense and defense – trying to get their 4 in a row, while attempting to stop/block
their opponent from doing the same first. Whoever can place their four pieces in a row along the
lines of the lines of the game mat, wins!
I can’t really compare Straight 4 to one particular game, but I have described it to my friends as
a combination between chess, checkers and Connect Four…but maybe a bit more portable
given the sleek packaging. It’s a one-on-one game that is so simple, and yet it requires strategy
and forethought to win. It’s seriously addicting and I definitely recommend it! If you are
interested, feel free to take a look at Straight 4 and other clever creations from Binary Cocoa

Been busy with life, and haven’t dedicated any time to building my site lately. I’ve got a few scripts written, just got to take the time to record them, and get them up.
Going to update a few sections of the site, and see if I can get some life back into this project of mine.
I have started another series of shorts, “Serious Shorts,” which focuses on various areas the government has decided to waste…I mean, er…”invest” our money into various studies, and on different laws that are still on the books. Gonna try to keep this one fairly neutral in terms of picking a side (Rep/Dem), since both sides are full of…God’s blessed children…lol
Got any suggestions on topics, or movies to review? Shoot me an email, and I’ll look into it. I’d like to make the site more enjoyable, and getting content people request seems like a good way of getting that done.
I’ve been going over some of my older material, and given it some thought…also with the help of a few good friends, I’ve decided to redo some of my older reviews. I’ve got a lot to process, so there will be a lot of things for me to go through, but I will make sure that the content is better and a bit more lively from now on.
I appreciate those that have stuck with me so far, so I hope to keep you around and find some new friends along the way. As always, I’m completely open to feedback so I can improve, and make stuff you all like.
You watched the review, and aren’t sick of me yet? Well, here’s a blooper reel! …Yeah…
The Green Bee? Oh, sorry…Green Hornet. What? Accidental hero? You’re doing it wrong…oh, you’re doing that on purpose? …Yeah, I’m still going to have to ask you to stop. Kato, you can keep on doing what you’re doing.
I was recently approached by Isaac of Horndog Studios, and he asked if I would like to become a video producer on his site. I jumped at the offer, and within a few minutes, here I am – one of the video producers for Horndog Studios!
Go ahead and check out his site, found here:
Looking forward to creating more content, and updating the site more regularly. Now that I’m back down to a single job, it should be a touch easier 🙂
What’s more important, stealing pic-i-nic baskets, or finding out if Ranger Smith will get a GF? …Yeah, I knew you’d see it my way…
BTW, I had to redo the video, because WB lost their minds after I used a picture of Oin from The Hobbit for about 2-3 seconds. Such happy, cheery people they are…At least they hurried back on the dispute process.
Yes, I know – welcome to the internet…blah blah blah…think I would have caught on by now, but nope, I’m a slow McGuffin, I guess.
Also, they apparently own the rights to Minecraft, and lost their minds once again for me wearing a Avengers/Minecraft themed T-Shirt. And you wonder why people are so upset with Warner Brothers? Strange, isn’t it?
Some people really shouldn’t be allowed to drive, and it’s time they finally get called out on it! WHO’S WITH ME???…
