I technically have the day off today. Why? Because CMON went public on the Hong Kong stock exchange and they’re giving us the day off to celebrate. But the news doesn’t stop just because the office is closed. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor slush, shal keep me from giving you your ...

It’s the last day of November. We’re 11/12s of the way through the year. We just might make it after all. Actually, I’m looking forward to this weekend. It should be a good time, as they generally are. I mean, weekend, right!? But, before we get there, we’ve got some more days...

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Or, for those of you not in the US. Happy Wednesday! As for me, I’m going to be busy when I get home. I need to bake another pumpkin pie, put turkey 1 into the brine bucket, speed-thaw turkey 2 (place in cold, running water for a couple hours), and make whipped […...

How’s everyone doing today? Ready for the weekend? I think I’m gonna keep mine rather chill, just putting together the last of my friend’s Guild Ball stuff. They’re already assembled. They just need greenstuff work done on ’em (filling in some small gaps, filling in the ...

Time has been playing weird tricks this week, I feel. The first several days flew by. Thursday took an eternity. Now, today’s doing a little bit of both. I feel like it should be later than it is, so it feels like it’s been a long time since this morning… but I’ve also gotten ...

Not sure why, but this week’s been a time enigma. I woke up this morning going, “wow, already Wednesday!” But since I’ve been here at the office, it’s been the exact opposite. “How is it only 10am? I feel like I’ve been here forever!” What might help is...

Well, sort of two ends of the spectrum in terms of new releases from Forge World this week. It’s rare enough that we see even releases for Age of Sigmar on there. But a Lord of the Rings release? I can’t remember the last one of those. Along with some new dwarves, there’s also a [&h...

We’re reaching the peak. After this, it’s a slide back down to the weekend. I’m hoping to have some friends over for gaming and cooking, as well as basically a “mini-Halloween” party (my apartment’s not really that big. Hard to have more than 4-5 people over ๐Ÿ˜› ). T...

Pretty much all of us have people we’d love to game with more often. Unfortunately, teleportation technology hasn’t quite been worked out yet. So while you’d like to game with friends in other states, countries, or even hemispheres, it’s not so easy to do. However, with a virt...

And we have the week continuing along. Seems this one’s going rather slowly, if you asked me. Earlier today, I looked at the clock and went, “How is it only just after 10am? I’ve been here in the office for the past 17 hours!” Note: I’d not actually been here 17 hours at...

There’s sometimes an issue that can come up with our favorite games: having the same thing happen all the time. Even games with lots of randomizing factors can end up feeling a bit same-y if you play them a lot. Well, Fantasy Flight Games is hoping to make sure your games of Descent have a [&he...

Wednesday already? This week sure seems to be moving along. That’s very much not a complaint, mind you. I’ve got board game day coming up this Saturday. We’re also going to be starting our new D&D game. So I’m very much ready for it to be Saturday. But if I want to keep u...

I don’t know about you, but my week has been busy. Lots of news. Lots of proofing projects. Lots of e-mails to reply to about a myriad of things. And tonight’s going to be busy, too. Friend’s birthday party tomorrow, so I’ll be doing some baking to take to the party. Pumpkin s...

The week continues to chug along. Hopefully yours has gone relatively easily. Mine’s certainly been busy. It might not look like it, but it’s been fairly hectic on this side of my screen. Writing posts, e-mailing people about all sorts of things, proofing projects for upcoming games. Just...

Brace yourselves, everyone. The weekend is just about here. In only a couple of hours, the work week will be over and we’ll be free to have a couple days to do whatever we want. I’ve… not fully decided what I’m going to get into yet. Might just take it easy this weekend. Might...

Friiiiiiidaaaaaaay! The gateway to the weekend. Hopefully you’ve got some gaming planned for the next couple days. I don’t have anything specific lined up, but there’s still plenty of time. At the very least, I’m thinking I want to make some brownies this weekend. Though I mig...

The work week continues along. It’s already half-over, in fact. Hopefully yours is going well. Mine’s not been great, but I’m making it through. Got board game day at the library coming up this weekend again. Should be a good time. But in the meantime, let’s bulk up on some bi...

The week rolls on. Don’t worry, people, we’ll get back to the weekend eventually. We’re at the midway point. We can get there if we stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Like what? Like these! On the platter today we have: GCT Studios Announces The Pioneers Program Kickstarter...

The week rolls on. We’re halfway there. The weekend is ever-closer as time marches on, and other sayings of “it’s not yesterday anymore!” It seems people around me are feeling a bit drained. Tuesday wasn’t the best for them, so they’re gonna try and regroup today. ...

Alright, everyone. We’ve made it halfway through the week. With just a bit more work, we can make it once more to the weekend. I’m confident that we’ll be able to do it. But before then, we’ll need to refuel with some bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that’s just wha...

If you went to Gen Con and you play Guild Ball, you had a chance to pick up your Season II mascots while at the show. I know I picked up a Wrecker and a Tentacles while there. Well, if you didn’t go to the show, your own wait for the release of most of […]...

I swear this show is just screaming by this year. It’s already the end of Day 3. Today will be the last day for Gen Con 2016. As usual for Gen Con Saturday, it was a whirlwind of activity. There was roaming the hall, taking photos most of the morning and early afternoon. Then there […]...

So, I have made it to Indianapolis for Gen Con. And I’m sitting in my hotel room, sorting e-mails, replying to e-mails, and typing up these posts. I hope you all appreciate it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜› Anyway, seeing as it is Wednesday (though it certainly doesn’t feel like it, at least to me), it’s tim...

Many of my friends have subscriptions to various “crate” services. Whether it’s snacks or comics or toys, it seems a couple times a week someone’s getting some new box at the office of something fun. Well, now we can add another to the list, RPGCrate. Subscriptions are being t...

It’s Friday. So tomorrow’s the weekend. It’s also the last weekend before Gen Con. I know some people that’ll be headed towards Indy as early as Monday morning. That means there’s lots to get done this weekend to prepare for the show. And if there’s lots to get don...

Yo ho-ho, a pirate’s life for me. If you want to live the pirate’s life as well on your Bushido tabletops, your wait is nearly over. The next faction for the game, the Jung Pirates, are soon to be let loosed upon the seas of the Jwar Isles. If you’re going to Gen Con, you […]...

We’ve made it to the halfway mark. Just the rest of today, and then two full days and we’ll be back into the sweet embrace of the weekend. How will you be beating the heat? Inside gaming? Outside trying to catch them all? A little of both? Just be sure to hydrate. A group of […]...

The week keeps on keepin’ on. We’ve gotten past the first half, with the second coming right at us. If we’re going to be making it to the weekend (where I plan on doing as little as possible), we’d better stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Today we have: Advanced Depl...

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...
