Well, it’s been a bit of a short week here in the office, having only come in Wed-Fri. Though, with having just a little time off from Gen Con, it felt much longer. I’m looking forward to a weekend of doing probably not all that much at all. Just some time to decompress a bit. […]...

The folks over at Assault Publishing have always been rather busy, coming out with new minis pretty much all the time. Well, they’ve decided to be even busier and come out with a new space combat game called Shadows in the Void (I guess you could say that the story is as much announcing that...

It’s Friday. So tomorrow’s the weekend. It’s also the last weekend before Gen Con. I know some people that’ll be headed towards Indy as early as Monday morning. That means there’s lots to get done this weekend to prepare for the show. And if there’s lots to get don...

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...

I bless the rains down in Africa. Or maybe I don’t, since I’m not a part of Toto (even if I do feel love isn’t always on time). Radio Dishdash has released Skirmish Afrika, their new modern African military expansion for Skirmish Sangin. It might just be raining lead down in Africa....

The week continues along. As it goes, so do we along with it. The weekend is coming up soon. It’ll hopefully be here before we know it. I’m going to an inaugural board game day at a library that a friend works at. Probably to play Guild Ball. I know that’s not technically a board [&...

Try not to panic, everyone, but the weekend is just around the corner. I’ve spent the last 3 going around all over Atlanta gaming (D&D one weekend, Guild Ball the next, and Drunk Quest (even though I didn’t drink) the next). What sort of things have you been up to? And have you had c...

We once more stand on the precipice of the weekend. I hope you’ve got gaming stuff planned. I know I do. It’ll be a good time had by all. Lots of gaming, and then lots of reporting about said gaming back to you all. But I’m still getting over being sick. I’m hoping I’m o...

“Protection? Protection from what? Ze Germans?” It might actually not be a bad idea to protect yourself against Ze Germans (specifically in this case the West Germans), as they’ll be making their way to Team Yankee in a couple months. Battlefront has posted up a preview of what you ...

I’ve really been looking forward to this weekend. Not that the work week’s been bad, mind you. It’s actually gone by in a flash. No, I’m just ready for a full weekend of gaming (and article-writing, which is a direct result of the gaming). What sort of things do you have plann...

It’s a hive of activity here in the office. We’ve got a lot of extra people in the office in town for the Expo this weekend. And it sounds like they’re building something in the warehouse (which is right behind my desk). Everything for the show is in “Final check” phase....

As much as I had to keep reminding myself that yesterday was Thursday and not Friday, I can now say that today is, indeed, Friday. There’s certainly plenty going on today. Lots of preparations for the CMON Expo happening next week. More on that later. At the moment, though, it’s time to f...

Monday and Tuesday are in the rear view mirror. Meanwhile, we work our way towards the weekend. We’re halfway there, people. We can make it. But if we’re gonna do it, we should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Thankfully, that’s just the sort of thing we have for you righ...

Earlier, a coworker called today “Friday Eve.” She said it sounded a lot better than “Fourth Monday.” … I can’t say I disagree with that line of reasoning at all. Friday Eve does sound a lot better than Fourth Monday. So welcome to our Friday Eve Terrain Corner. To...

The week continues on. We’ve made it halfway through. We might as well press on to the weekend. Turning back now would just be silly. But if we’re going to make it, we should rest a bit and get some provisions. Thankfully, there’s a group of bite-size stories here just waiting for u...

Well, as Lynyrd Skynyrd said, Tuesday’s gone. That, of course, means we’ve moved on to Wednesday. Woo! We’re halfway through the week! Always a good feeling that. The weekend is getting closer every minute. Before we get there, though, we need to serve up some bite-sized stories we&...

Well, while it seems like we dodged one bullet here in Georgia the other day, only getting some rain. It’s looking tonight like we might get a bit of accumulated precipitation. Though considering tomorrow it’s supposed to get to 38 and the day after it’s supposed to be sunny and 51,...

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...

After a couple weeks of vacations, it’s back in the office, on the regular, for a spell. Yay? Actually, that’s not so bad. I’m one of those “regular routine” sort of people, anyway. So it’s all good. I hope everyone’s starting to get a chance to play the game...

Busy preparations this weekend. It’s the week of Christmas and so I’m a busy little baking bear. Yesterday was brownies, two batches of chocolate chip cookies, and a batch of caramel-filled dark-chocolate-chip cookies. Today I’ve got four more types I’m planning on making. Did...

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...

It’s starting to really get cool outside overnight. Literally speaking, soon the frost will be on the pumpkin. And that’s here in Atlanta. I’m sure any of you gamers further north than I have already experienced such. So why not make up a batch of hot cocoa and huddle up next to the...

Historical miniatures have quite a long and storied… umm… history. The very first minis games were based on recreating historical battles on tabletops and floors. So Sabresquadron has quite a pedigree of historical games. But where many of them focus on times such as Napoleonic, Revolutio...
