The week continues along, as it tends to do. It’s only just today that I really realized that this upcoming weekend is a long one for those of us here in the US. The 4th of July falls on Monday. So that’ll be cool. Time for some BBQs. But before we get to the hamburgers, […]...

It’s been a long week. Well, ok, technically it’s been as long as pretty much every other week. But it seems that it really slowed down starting Wednesday afternoon. I’m certainly ready for the weekend, anyway. Gotta refuel in order to make it there, though. So I’m going to ch...

As I’ve mentioned many times, having extra resources available to your DM is only ever a good thing, in my mind. Most groups don’t have 6-8 months between games like my group does. So the DM has to be more-ready for game. Sometimes that doesn’t happen. That’s where pre-generat...

I’ve been involved with gaming for well over a decade now. Many of my friends I’ve known from “way back” have had some great, momentous things happen in their lives. Like my friend Ravyn. 9 years ago, she got married (no, not to me. :P). She’s since gone on to start Adva...

It’s Friday, everyone. Keep calm and we’ll get through this just fine and then move onward into the bliss that is the Weekend. My gaming is going to start early, as when I get out of here, I’m going to an Irish Pub nearby for some bangers and mash. Afterward, it’s back to my p...

Steady as she goes, everyone. We’re halfway through the week. The weekend will be here soon enough. *hears someone call out, “That’s not soon enough!”* Hush, you. Anyway, we should push on ahead and keep going until we hit Saturday. But to get there, we’ll need to stock ...

It’s almost here, everyone! The weekend will be here before you know it! Along with the gaming, I’m certainly ready for pizza for dinner tonight. The Ramen I’ve been having is getting a bit old on the palate. But in the meantime, I can nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories. Today w...

I swear the guys over at Steamforged found my profile, said, “hmm, what can we make that’ll all-but guarantee that this dude plays our game?” and then figured it out and made it. The Hunter’s Guild is still pretty new out there for Guild Ball, but you can now order the first e...

It’s another Saturday. Through an odd turn of events, I’m in the office. So Monday and Tuesday I was home because I was sick. Now it’s Saturday and I’m in the office because my internet is broken at home (overnight storm fried my modem). But all is well. Things are getting don...

I’ve really been looking forward to this weekend. Not that the work week’s been bad, mind you. It’s actually gone by in a flash. No, I’m just ready for a full weekend of gaming (and article-writing, which is a direct result of the gaming). What sort of things do you have plann...

I’ve always been a fan of a nice walk through the fog. As a morning person, this gets to happen on several occasions. However, if that fog is filled with undead, it’s not always such a good thing to be walking around in. However, walking around in it is just what your heroes in Descent [&...

We’re making our way through the week here at a steady pace. It’s already Wednesday. I hope it’s going smoothly for you. It’s been naturally busy the first couple days after the Expo. I’m mostly caught up. Just a couple things left. But at the exact moment, it’s br...

It’s a hive of activity here in the office. We’ve got a lot of extra people in the office in town for the Expo this weekend. And it sounds like they’re building something in the warehouse (which is right behind my desk). Everything for the show is in “Final check” phase....

When hanging out at the LGS, whether it’s during a tourney or just going between games, we all have various ways of transporting our armies from one spot to another. Some people put their figs back into the foam trays or tackle box they came out of. Though that can be really time-consuming. Others wi...

Hey everyone. I hope your Tabletop Day yesterday was good. I hope you enjoyed the Unboxing of Lost Patrol. I’m spending much of the day today putting together that set so I can try it out over the coming weeks. I’m also going to be baking German Chocolate Cake Cookies. Yes, they will be a...

Ok, everyone, we’re progressing along at a nice, steady pace through the week. We can keep this up. We can manage to continue this direction and speed and the weekend will be here before we know it. But we should stock up on energy. A great way to do that is via some bite-sized gaming […...

We’ve made it to Friday, people! This is not a drill! This is not a drill! … It’s a belt sander. But that’s beside the point. We’ve been working all week for this. The weekend is just about here. We must get ready. It seems like a good time to fill up on some bite-sized ...

There’s a lot of “moving parts” when it comes to running an RPG. You’ve got all the stats for the players to keep track of. You’ve got all the various monsters you might be throwing at them. There’s all the NPCs going around. There’s the adventure to keep tra...

And we’re back to a “standard weekend” after the whirlwind that was Adepticon. As great as conventions are, it’s the “calm between the storms” that make us appreciate the storms (… I’m not the only one that really likes thunderstorms, am I?). Anyway, od...

And we’ve made it to Friday. In some ways it’s been a short week, since I worked from home on Tuesday and thus have only been in the office 3 days. However, being still tired from Adepticon has mitigated that somewhat. So I’m very ready for the weekend. I need to sort through my Ade...

A lot of people love Zombicide. To help you play, a companion app has been around for a while, but this version updates the User Interface to be more user-friendly. It does away with the need for a lot of the various extras and sundries of the game. It has a virtual equipment card deck, […]...

So, as I was in a car for just slightly more than 1/2 of yesterday, I didn’t get much of a chance to post up the Midweek Snippets post. As such, I’m rolling it in with today’s Terrain Corner, as I have a bit of time right now to do so (and to give you […]...

The land of Barovia is a pretty dark and bleak place. The citizens live in fear of the things that go bump in the night. Those that travel through the land would do well to visit Madam Eva, a fortune teller in the region, who can help them either stay out of trouble or learn […]...

Moving locations can be exciting. There’s a new place with new opportunities, new neighbors, new local restaurants, a new shops. However… you’ve gotta pack up all your stuff into boxes and carry it over there. That’s… not so much fun. That’s why a lot of people wil...

Ah, Sunday. For me, at least, the relaxing day of the week. Sure, there’s chores to do like laundry and cooking for the week, but overall, it’s a day to just relax a bit. Also, I’m told there’s some major sporting event-thing going on today. Ok, I know it’s the Super Bow...
