And we’ve successfully made it to Saturday. After the… incredible craziness that was this past week, I’m extremely thankful for just a low-key, simple Saturday. Once I’m done here I’ve got a Colossal to put together for a friend. Then I’m gonna just watch some movi...

You’ve got to have strong individuals to be in charge and take the lead if you want your group to succeed. This certainly holds true for a group such as the Rebellion. They were outnumbered and outgunned greatly by the Imperial forces. Without strong and competent leaders, the Emperor wouldR...

Another day, another game ported to English. This time it’s the supergroup of Fantasy Flight Games and Hobby World as they team up to bring you Mafia: Vandetta, the party card game of murder. The little town of Omerta was no stranger to the occasional murder. But now, it’s a daily event. ...

Well, we’ve seen a new Rebel ship and a new Imperial ship for the next wave of X-Wing Miniatures Game releases. How about the Scum & Villainy faction? Well, they’re certainly not left out in the cold vacuum of space. They’re getting their own ships, one of which is the Mist Hunt...

I’m not a city-person. I wouldn’t really say I’m a country-person, either, but I would much prefer taking a vacation in the woods rather than in, say, New York. In the Star Wars universe, if you were force-sensitive and you wanted to go all Bear Grylls and just go live in the woods,...

You know, even though they’re seen in a desert environment in Star Wars, I bet that a bantha wouldn’t do so bad in someplace like Hoth. Large creature, covered in hair. It might have trouble finding enough to eat, but I’m guessing it already has that issue on Tattooine. Well, soon y...

Those pesky undead. They seem to show up at the most inopportune times. And not all are created equal. While most of us gamers might look at a skeleton, even one in some armor, and go, “Meh, it’s just a skeleton.” That’d be a very dangerous thing to do when it comes to Ardus I...

So it’s something like 70 degrees outside. So, not really Hoth-like (or really all that Christmas-like), but we can still imagine it’s cold. Granted, it doesn’t actually have to be cold in order to play the Return to Hoth expansion for Imperial Assault. But any way you feel like pla...

The other day, people were kinda bummed that the new Force Awakens ships had arrived from Fantasy Flight Games, but the new Imperial Assault Carrier wasn’t available. Well, it would seem that the bigger ship just took a little longer to maneuver into place, as it, too, is now available....

So, how about that The Force Awakens, eh? I… should probably go see it at some point. Ah well, even if I haven’t seen the movie, I can play the various games, including Imperial Assault. And for that game, Fantasy Flight is giving us a new preview. Strange to think that the Star Wars univ...

Hello there, all you gaming friends out there in gamer-land! Seems for the moment that it’s actually going to be a bit winter-like here in Atlanta. At least for a couple days. No, it’s not like the winters I remember in Chicago, but if we had a winter like that down here, this place would...

We know that the Empire was more about “quantity” than “quality” when it came to their starfighter designs. Most TIEs didn’t have shields or all that rugged of hulls. As such, a lot of pilots didn’t really make it long enough to be considered “veterans.”...

Bounty hunters… you might just want some of their scum, after all. They’re certainly a rather popular part of the Star Wars universe. Despite Boba Fett doing relatively little (and going out like a punk) in the movie, his cool armor really made all of the bounty hunters stars of the show....

One of my favorite characters I wish I’d had a chance to play back during the D20 days of the Star Wars RPG was a techie/gear-head character that loved to work on all sorts of gadgets. If it could be customized, it would be customized. If it could be upgraded, it would be upgraded. If […...

I ain’t afraid of no Ghosts. But Imperial and Scum & Villainy players may be. But informing yourself is the best way to rid yourself of such fears. Granted, Rebel players are going to be learning all they can about the new Ghost expansion for X-Wing as well. In other words, everyone should...

Dungeons. They’re full of treasure. We all know that. As adventurers, we want to go diving in after that treasure. Of course, it’s not simply “enter dungeon. Get treasure.” If that were the case, the treasure wouldn’t be there when you got to it, because someone else wou...

The past two mornings, I’ve had to scrape ice off of my car before I commute into the office. These are the first days I’ve had to do so this season. So it’s certainly getting cold out there. Of course, being originally from Chicago, it’s no big deal for me. My friends here th...
