Welcome to another Saturday, beautiful readers. We’re in a bit of the “calm before the storm.” The last weekend before Gen Con. I did some grocery shopping specifically for the trip (granola bars and cough drops to have in my satchel as I run all around Indy). Next will be making a ...

Drac-u-leeeee! Drac-u-laaaaa! I should probably stop. I wouldn’t want to incur the ire of Dracula. Though, it seems his Fury is already out. Or at least, it will be out when Fantasy Flight Games releases the 3rd edition of Fury of Dracula, the game of vampire hunting all across Europe....

Sometimes, just playing the good guys in a game can get old. The same can be said for just playing the bad guys. What if you want to play both the heroes and the monsters? There’s not much chance for something like that. However, in Cave Troll, that’s just what you get to do. And [&hellip...

Star Wars: A New Hope, for those that might not have realized it, is told through the perspective of the two droids, C-3PO and R2-D2. Except for a few scenes here and there, they’re in most of them. And the story follows not Luke or Han, but the droids. The film is about getting the […]...

The cast of characters in Star Wars is pretty big, both in terms of named characters and just character archetypes. Though they don’t have a full background, or even usually a name to go with their face, they’re no less iconic to the setting. Well, two of those types of character were jus...

Boba Fett, the biggest badass of the original Star Wars trilogy (who never really did much of anything, but hey, screen presence), is coming to Imperial Assault. There, he’ll have the potential to do a lot more than he did on-screen (if the dice say so, anyway. It’s always up to the dice&...

I’ve always been a fan of heavy ordinance. A-10 Warthogs have been my favorite military aircraft for decades (I even had the G.I. Joe version when I was a kid). So when you see the TIE Bomber for those few seconds in Empire Strikes Back, those became my favorite couple of seconds. Well, little ...

I, as I mentioned in my post yesterday, am more-than-likely playing 2nd edition D&D when this will be posted to the site. Some friends I know have a long-running campaign and the DM is writing me in as an occasionally-recurring NPC. Not sure what my character will be (at time of typing), but it ...

Bounty hunters… you may not feel you need them (being the scum that they are), but they do tend to get the job done when necessary. In the case of X-Wing, that generally means shooting holes in the enemy’s ships. As the newest faction, the Scum & Villainy group doesn’t have a l...

I’m an Ork player. I absolutely love them. Back when I played 40k, they were my faction. Sure, I had a few Marine chapters here and there, and my original faction was Tyranids, but my real army of choice was Orks. I still have them, actually, though they’ve not seen any table-time in a fe...
