Posted in 1UP, Anorak's Almanac


Here is the list of all of the playable references that would have appeared in Anorak’s Almanac. They are listed below by Category, from RPGs to tabletop games, video games and everything in between. Even toys. As articles and reviews get written about the reference (since playing with a Rubix Cube isn’t as interesting as why it got created…or the background about the D&D campaign that we are playing…) then the title will turn into a link for you to follow to that review or article! The links below will jump you to each category since the number of references… though this category isn’t as long as others which I found weird….and may be added to in the future.
