Friday Snippets

Hello, Friday, my old friend.
This has been the first full-week of the year, methinks. Like, ok, I know that we’re already into February, but I think this might be the only week where I’ve been up and into the office each day. Just been that type of year so far, I suppose. What might help is bulking up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: The Army Painter Announces New Zombicide: Green Horde Paint Sets, Dice Coins Up On Kickstarter, Muddleflog Paper Miniatures Are Now Available, and New Oval Ancient Machinery Bases Available From Tabletop-Art.

Still working on getting better from this cold. It always seems to take me longer to get back to 100% than it does days that I’m actually feeling sick. It’s like, “Ok, these are the days I’m definitely sick” and then a week of, “I’m hoping this is the last day of this garbage.”
I’m starting to get my appetite back, though. So I’m going to chow down on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today in the platter we have: Treasure Towers Dice Towers Up On Kickstarter, Now available – New Ancestral Ruins bases From Tabletop-Art, Necronomicon Dice Up On Kickstarter, and New Nurgle Trays from Battle Foam: Great Unclean One.

Fridaaaaaaaaaay! Woo!
*coughcoughcough* Ok, so I’m still a bit sick. But having slept for… oh… about 15 hours, give or take, last night, I’m feeling a bit better. Also, my appetite is coming back. So there’s that. As such, I’m not just having soup, I’m also noshing on these bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New 32mm Infested Bases From Dark Art Miniatures, PeltaPeeps in Mensa Mind Games 2018, New Ancient Oval Bases Available From Micro Art Studio, and Mystery Dice Weekend Sale at Kraken Dice.

Well… my week’s taking a bit of a turn. Woke up this morning with a slight cough. Here’s to hoping that doesn’t turn into anything. Not really interested in being sick. So I’m making sure to keep my fluids up, taking a bit of Dayquil, and need to stay fed with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: January Releases Available From Terrible Kids Stuff, PolyHero Dice Rogue Set Up On Kickstarter, and Freyja’s Wrath: Dark Age & Fantasy 28mm Shieldmaidens Up On Kickstarter.

The weekend is almost upon us! I’m already getting my gaming on today. I’ll be playing some of the Munchkin CCG, as well as perhaps some of the Fallout board game. That’s before I go over to a friend’s place tomorrow to deliver some late Christmas presents (ok, really late)… they’re games. So hopefully we’ll play them some. But if I’m going to be doing all this gaming, I should be well-fed. Good thing I’ve got some gaming stories to nosh on. Including cotton candy dice. Yes, I ordered these dice this morning. #NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice

Today on the platter we have: Cotton Candy Dice Available From Kraken Dice, Goblin Factory Releases New Goblins, and Magnetic Days – 25% DISCOUNT On Magnetic Gear At Tabletop-Art.

Man, for a second there, I almost put in “Thursday Terrain Corner” as the title. Settle down there, bear. The week’s not going by that quickly. But it is continuing along. And being busy is helping make it feel like it’s going. Though I am happy to say it’s not Thursday yet, considering stuff I still need to get done. And if I’m going to be doing all the things (!!!!), I’ll need to be well-supplied with energy. Snacking on some bite-size gaming stories should help.

Today on the platter we have: FlexTale Encounter Generator Up On Kickstarter, and The Painting Frog Talks about GW In South America.

It’s Fridaaaaaaaay! Gateway to the weekend! Woo!
My weekend is going to be chill. I mean… sure, as a polar bear, I’m always chill, but I’m just gonna hang out at home. I’ve actually been meaning to give the place a good cleaning.

Halfway there.
We’re halfway to getting back to the weekend. Methinks I’m going to take it easy this weekend. I found out my LGS is going to be absolutely packed with several events running for games I don’t really play, so I’ll probably just veg at my place. I could use a relaxing couple of days, anyway. Though it does mean I still need to wait to break in my custom Guild Ball mat (more on that tomorrow. Stay tuned). In the meantime, I’m feeling a bit peckish, so how about noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories?

Well, the PlayPals app is here to help you find gamers and games going on in your area. It’s up on Kickstarter now.

And here we are again. Friday: threshold to the weekend. I’m sure many of you are gearing up for a weekend of gaming, possibly starting as early as when you get off of work.

Photos from Day 4 of Gen Con

Well, Gen Con wrapped up yesterday. Today’s a travel day for me. Then we’ll get you back to a closer-to-regular posting schedule tomorrow and going into the rest of the week. It’s impossible to thank all the people who made this show so awesome. There’s just too many to list (and my brain is still far, far too tired, even after some sleep). But it was an amazing show. Every year, I wonder if “The Greatest 4 Days in Gaming” is going to be false advertising or not, and every year, it proves itself correct. The show does, truly, deserve that title. Anyway, here’s the last galleries from the show. I hope you like ’em.

Sally 4th Releases Combat Patrol: South Pacific Supplement

WWII was truly a global conflict. While the various European forces were making their way back and forth across that continent, and Rommel and Monty were dueling it out in Africa, the islands of the Pacific saw plenty of fighting as well. Sally 4th is now letting you recreate those battles with their South Pacific supplement for Combat Patrol. It is available now. But it’s not just the supplement that’s new. There’s also a new deck box and some terrain.
