My dad’s side of the family is from South Dakota. Many of them are farmers. It’s not easy work. Me, as a city boy, would go and visit and spend a week or so helping out around the farm. It was fun, but man, it would definitely kick my ass. It’s easy to see how […]...

This has been quite a week. Deadlines. The website acting up. Just lots going on. I’m very much ready for the weekend. Tomorrow I’m headed up to the LGS to pick up a Guild Ball figure they got in for me, as well as hopefully playing a game of the aforementioned game, plus just hanging [&h...

Well, after what seemed like two Thursdays in a row, we have made our way, finally, to Friday. And I, for one, welcome our new almost-weekend overlords. With any luck, your weekend will be filled with gaming. If not, I still hope it’s restful. But before we can get there, we should fill up on [...

This has been quite a week. There’s been all the excitement coming out of GAMA, with lots of great announcements being made. And tomorrow I’ve got Board Game Day up at the library. I’m feeling a bit drained from it all. Better nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories. Today on the pla...

Is this week going by slowly for everyone else, too, or is it just me? I don’t know if it’s because I’m working from home as the new office continues to be set up, or if it’s just that this week is one that’s taking forever. Maybe it’s that I don’t currently ...

The middle of the week and the start of a new month. 2017 is already 1/12 in the books. January sure did go by quick (at least for me). Before you know it, we’ll be announcing Black Friday sales. Ok, maybe that’s a bit much. Plenty of things to do between now and then. And […]...

And we’re already to Wednesday. It helps the week go along when you’re off on Monday. It’s also my friend Gilbert’s birthday! Yo. Gilbert. You old, dude. Anyway, along with cake and ice cream, we should fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Today on the platter we have: M...

Man, it is busy over here on this side of the screen. Pretty much all week there’s been stuff going on. I’m sure that’s part of why it feels like it’s really flown by… And I’ve still not really gotten a handle on what I’m going to do with my D&D group to...

Today’s a day to celebrate. Why? It’s my 5th anniversary with TGN. Yes, on this day, 5 years ago, I made my first post on the site. It was the new plastic Warp Wolf kit that Privateer Press was coming out with. Oh how gaming has changed since then. I remember having a conversation, a [&he...

Well, this rocket-fast week is rocket-fastly coming to an end (yes, I made up a word there. It’s not a very good word, but there it is). The weekend stretches before us like a blank canvas. Personally? I’m going to be playing some Guild Ball, putting together some Kingdom Death (or, hopef...

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 […...

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 ...

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 😛 ). T...

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...

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...

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. 😉 😛 Anyway, seeing as it is Wednesday (though it certainly doesn’t feel like it, at least to me), it’s tim...

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 […]...

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...

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...

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...

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...
