Here's a little bit of trivia for you; the first Alpha Marathon was rolled out in 2008, making this edition the ten year anniversary. I've long lost track of who won what -- I know I've won a lot of them and, one year, Joe smashed it out of the park in half a year, but I do keep in mind the few people who have staggered over the finishing line, first or no. So, for the first time, I introduce the AlphaMarathon Honour Roll:

EmP, Suskie, ASchultz, Joe, Overdrive


To those of you not on the list, or new to the topic, this is a rolling event that challenges you to write a review for a game with a starting letter for every letter of the alphabet. 27 reviews in a year sounds easy, doesn't it? Then you have to try and hunt down a Q. And the pesky ~ pokes its head out. And you think you have time... you always think you have time. You can fund yourself a U or an I later. Until you can't.

Here are some rules:

  • Reviews must be written and submitted in 2018


  • No re-posting of old reviews unless they are significantly refurbished.


  • No linking to off site reviews. Only sites accepted on site count towards the score


  • Only reviews you link to on this here topic will count towards your total tally. You are responsible for keeping your Alpha tally up to date.


  • And so we go again:

    Jason - 4

    EmP - 1
    Jerec - 1
    Joe - 1


    For us. For them. For you.

    "Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

    "What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world
