Event: The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball 2016

The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball is an annual Masquerade held in Los Angeles. This two night event will be held at the beautiful and luxurious Biltmore Hotel. The main theme is based on Jim Henson’s classic “Labyrinth”, although many realms reside within the confines of this event- fantasy and wonder are at its heart.

Started in 1997 by Shawn Strider, a then Comic Publisher whom had never attended a masquerade, decided to create his own. This will be the 19th year in existence.  The event now boasts of an entire group of Volunteers; Artists, Dancers, Composers, Actors, and Musicians (aka The Sypher Art Studio) that come together every year to create one of the most magical Masquerades on the West Coast.

I have attended this event for many years now and look forward to another year of fantasy and lore to be explored in every corner of the Biltmore. This year’s event will be on August  5th and 6th, tickets are still available at

The Hungry Gamer Reviews Tzolk’in

One of the more highly anticipated games from 2020 was Pendulum, a game that had a core conceit of time, the longer the worker stays out on the board the more powerful it is. Whether or not that game worked is a different article, but the concept of time being part of the mechanic for the worker placement game had been done previously, and if popular opinion can be believed, had been done very well in Tzolk'in, a game which has been around since 2012.
