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...

The DC Universe is full of plenty of colorful characters that have had different iterations over the years. Many of those different versions have made their way into the Batman Miniatures Game from Knight Models. It seems there’s always another version of Batman and Robin to add to the game. We...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Well, yesterday slowed things down, but it seems to have picked back up again rather nicely. We now find ourselves halfway through Friday. That weekend will be here before we know it! What have you all got set up for the weekend? I’ve got a whole heap of chores to get done before Gen Con [&hell...

Well, as was expected, Thursday has turned into Friday. The week’s still going by quickly (that’s NOT a complaint). So it should be almost no time before I’m headed home for a lovely weekend of… I’m not 100% sure what I’ll be up to this weekend. Having spent the la...

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...

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’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...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

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, it seems like it took about 5 weeks to get here, but Friday is finally upon us. It felt like it took 5 weeks to me, anyway. Hopefully your week went by a lot more quickly, as postponing the weekend any more than it already is at the start of the week seems like […]...

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 ...

I realize, as I type this, and the Imperial March starts playing on Pandora, that a good, “good guy gone bad” story is something most love to watch. Some fairly iconic characters were once good guys, but then went a little astray. Is there still a hope for redemption? Only the writers kno...

Taking a break from the RPG Kickstarters for a minute. Is the week going by quickly for anyone else? On my ride in to work today, I looked down at my dashboard and saw my odometer and, for a moment, went, “why is that so high? It’s only Tues… oh… wait… it’s Wednesd...

Woo! Friday! Woo! Most of my friends are talking about Star Wars. I’ve not seen it yet. Perhaps sometime soon. But it is cool to see how integrated into the mainstream our “geeky” culture has become. Now we don’t have to be shy and reluctant to talk about the things we love. W...

Being more of a “Marvel” guy than a “DC” guy, I never really got into much Batman stuff. I’d seen the Adam West show a couple times, but never regularly watched it. I haven’t played any of the Batman video games. I never read the comics. However, I did watch the An...

It’s time once again for Friday. Now, normally, the week after a “short week” (such as last week) feels like they take forever. At least, to me they do. That’s why if given my druthers, I’d have a Monday off rather than a Friday. You get a long weekend and then a short w...
