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 ...

Monday and Tuesday are in the rear view mirror. Meanwhile, we work our way towards the weekend. We’re halfway there, people. We can make it. But if we’re gonna do it, we should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Thankfully, that’s just the sort of thing we have for you righ...

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...

The work week marches on (as Glenn Miller – American Patrol plays on Pandora). We’re halfway there, beautiful watchers. We’ve made it to Wednesday. Let’s keep on keepin’ on and make our way to the rest of the week. However, a quick bite would be good. Oh, look, some bite...

Well, the week was seemingly going along at a good clip. Then we hit about 11am yesterday. I swear there were 5 hours between 11am and 1pm yesterday. Thankfully, today feels like it’s humming along rather well. Here we are, already at 2pm. So seeing as it’s Thursday at 2pm, let’s ge...

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...

Well, after quite an eventful week including having to spend a night at a friend’s place because my car was being fixed, it’s made its way to once more be Friday. Booyah. Though not exactly “cheering my way” into the weekend, it’s more like a sigh of relief. But hey, any...

Well… that was a bit of an adventure. For those interested in keeping track, Monday I noticed my car had a coolant leak. Tuesday I took it into the shop. They originally said, “it’ll just be a couple hours.” Then they said, “it’ll be overnight (they needed a part)....

At the risk of editorializing, I really enjoy playing Bushido (even though I’ve not really had a chance to do so in quite some time). It’s sad how far behind I’ve gotten on releases, considering how much I love the game. But waddyagonnado? Seems I’ll be just a little bit more ...
