Well, King Robert Baratheon is dead (uh… spoilers, I guess, for those that haven’t even seen the whole first season of a show that’s been out for years now). Now, the throne is up for grabs (I mean, really, nobody wants to give it to Joffrey) and so the great houses of Westeros are ...

Big, adventure board games like Runebound offer an entire day’s worth of gaming in a single package. There’s quite a bit of replayability right in the box, what with all the different heroes, equipment, and skills you can choose from. But any game, if played often enough, can start to fee...

I thought a Special Forces TIE was something a Navy Seal wore to a formal occasion. But it’s also a new type of TIE Fighter for the X-Wing Miniatures Game. It’s got an improved sensor array and also a turret for its gun. I’m still not sure how it doesn’t blow its own solar pan...

I hope your Monday is going along well. It’s kind of a hot one here in Atlanta. Even inside the office it’s not exactly comfortable. But it’s ok. I’ll make it through. Just gotta focus on one post at a time. And currently, that post is the Terrain Corner for today. This time a...

And we’re walking. And we’re walking. And we’re walking. And so were Sam, Frodo, and the other members of the Fellowship of the Ring. They had to get the One Ring to Mt. Doom in order to destroy it. Along the way, they were constantly being harassed by the Ring Wraiths. It’s j...

Ah, Saturday. What cannot be accomplished on a day such as this? … except maybe typing correctly, since the first time through writing that I had 3 typos. *double-checks that they’re all fixed* … Ok, I think I got ’em. I’m big on tradition, and the tradition for Saturday...

Star Wars is all about conflict. It’s sort of, y’know, right there in the name. It’s not Star Peaceful Talks Next To A Fireplace, after all. Nearly countless soldiers fought for the Rebel side, looking to free the galaxy from the tyranny of the Empire. If you’d like to be one ...

“Waste not. Want not.” The Rebel Alliance certainly does their best to not waste resources. They really can’t afford to, as they’ve gotta be sneaky in their war against the Empire. That includes finding old ships and updating them. Such is the case with the ARC-170, which will...

Terrinoth’s Mistlands aren’t someplace many people go to vacation. You’re not going to see travel agents selling holiday package deals to visit it. I’d go out on a limb and say that’s mostly because of all the undead who would be all too happy to add you to their skeleta...

The Empire’s hold on individual star systems doesn’t leave much room for people to live free and express themselves. If an Imperial does something against you, chances are good that you’re not going to have much cause for redress. Or, even if the Empire isn’t directly involved...

In the Hero’s Journey, you’ll usually have the old sage who will impart wisdom on the young upstart and then, usually, they’ll get killed off. There’s no better example of that type of character than Obi-Wan Kenobi. The old Jedi who first pushed Luke Skywalker along the path t...

While Imperial starfighters aren’t generally known for being rugged, and thus bringing their pilots home after every mission, those who are skilled enough can achieve the title “Veteran.” These seasoned pilots can bring a lot to an engagement. That’s just what you get in the I...

Well, in rather short order, we’ve gotten the preview for the Interdictor and now The Liberty for Star Wars Armada from Fantasy Flight Games. The MC80 (which is the Liberty’s ship type) brings a new style of play for the Rebels. Now you don’t have to try and circle-strafe your Imper...

Fantasy Flight Games has posted up a preview of their upcoming Interdictor expansion pack for Star Wars Armada. Getting pulled out of hyperspace into a trap, or using the ship’s huge gravity wells to keep Rebels from escaping makes the Interdictor an important part of the Imperial fleet. Even i...

If you’re like me, you have spent a lot of time looking over stats for models in a game you play and endlessly coming up with different builds for your teams/armies/fleets. “I could take X, and that’d give me points for Y, but not enough for Z.” and so forth and so on. Well, F...

The Jedi Order had been around for quite a long time before the Emperor decided, “well, that’s enough of that” and started working at getting rid of them all. Sure, he got a lot of them right away with Order 66, but remnants of the Jedi Order were all over (galaxies are pretty big p...

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not really afraid of bugs, but I don’t go out of my way to deal with them, either. I’ll squish a spider if I need to, but I’d prefer if they just stayed where they’re at and left me alone. Well, most people in Terrinoth would also pre...

Descent is a one-vs-many game. While most players take on the role of a hero, one gets to play as the Overlord. They’re basically the “Dungeon Master” player. But unlike an RPG, they’re not out there to just tell a good story for the players, they’re there to win! Well, ...

Some board games can seem a bit intimidating in terms of “moving parts” for it. And while they might really be all that complicated, having a digital version that does some of the bookkeeping for you is pretty handy. Such is the case with the digital version of Talisman. There’s als...

Descent is a game of nearly infinite expansions (so it sometimes seems). The original game had quite a lot released for it. Then came the new edition. Well, to make sure you can play all those old expansions with your new rules, Fantasy Flight Games has been coming out with those sets, but with updat...

My wife asked me why I carry my gun around the house. I said it was because of Decepticons. She laughed. I laughed. The toaster laughed. I shot the toaster. That’s not originally my joke, though I wish it was. I also don’t have a wife, or own a gun… or a toaster, for that […]...
