So, the thing with Kickstarter exclusives is that you can’t sell them after the Kickstarter campaign, but you can give them away as promotional materials. I’ve learned this over the years, seeing how they’re handled. It’s a good way to still get those items, though it can some...

Well, I’m coming to realize that this is not going to be a regular week. With all the prep and hype for GAMA last week, even though I realize that I leave for Adepticon this week, it’s still sort of a, “oh yeah, that…” instead of, y’know, “Oh yeah! That!!R...

Wherever gamers get together to game, there’s going to be the question of, “who is the best at this game?” So you pair off and fight it out (on the tabletop, of course), looking to work your way to the top table and come out the champion. Nothing wrong with the good, healthy spirit ...

Is this week going by slowly for everyone else, too, or is it just me? I don’t know if it’s because I’m working from home as the new office continues to be set up, or if it’s just that this week is one that’s taking forever. Maybe it’s that I don’t currently ...

My painting skills are lacking. They really are. I’ve not painted anything of note for some time now. So, that means you don’t have to worry about me swooping in and taking the top prize in Mantic’s The Walking Dead: All Out War Painting Competition....

Well, the world’s once more come to an end. Damnit, Carl! I told you to not go out into the cold weather! Now there’s zombies, zombies everywhere! (… and not a drop to drink?) But while we sit here in our bunker, hearing all the cries of “braaaaaains!” from just outside,...

Sometimes you just don’t have the ability to get in on a Kickstarter campaign while it’s running. You might miss the announcement or just not have the funds at the time or whatever other million reasons are out there. During the backerkit portion, you might still miss out. That’s al...

Tanks. “You’re welcome.” No, tanks! “I said you’re welcome!” Look! Tanks! “Ooooh… tanks… Holy Crap! Tanks!” You know, you’d think that having a tank during a zombie outbreak wouldn’t be so bad. Well-armored, can travel over all s...
