The “busy day” at Gen Con is in full swing. I’m running around like crazy trying to get photos of things. What you’re reading now is past me telling you about current me. But past me knows that current you also wants to read about some game reviews. So let’s get to it. T...

It’s the Saturday before Gen Con. A week from now we’ll be shoulder-deep in the show. Of course, that means this weekend is full of running around like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to get everything done before heading to Indy. But, even with all the brouhaha, there’s tim...

Congratulations! You’ve made it to Saturday! *throws a little party* Mine’s been busy so far. We’re just a couple weeks out from Gen Con, and that means about a million little things to get done (along with a couple big things) before heading to the show. My “To Do” list...

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...

Hey there, everyone. I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday. Mine’s not the greatest, as I’m driving back from visiting my parents. Not that visiting my parents is bad. But the 8.5 hour drive back home is. Buh. No fun at all. But at least once I’m back home I’ll be able to...

Hello, everyone. My name’s Polar Bear and I’m an Ascension junkie. “Hi, Polar Bear.” I have every boxed expansion that’s come out for the game as well as most of the promo cards as well. So when I saw that Stone Blade Entertainment was coming out with a new set at Origins, but I wasn’t […]...

Saturday! Glorious Saturday! As you read this, I’m at a library that a friend works at. They’re having their first Board Game Day and so I’m playing some board games. Actually, there’s a very high likelihood that I’m playing Guild Ball, which isn’t really a board g...

Ah, Saturday. What cannot be accomplished on a day like today? *hears someone shout out “You can’t build Rome in a day!”* … Ok, besides that. *hears people shout out hundreds of other things* Ok, fine! But besides the roads, education, the aqueduct, and stability, what have th...

Hey everyone and welcome to Saturday. How’s yours been? Mine’s been busy as f… err… it’s been busy. Since this morning I’ve made homemade caramel sauce, strawberry-lime sauce, peanut-butter-caramel-pretzel-chocolate-bar-things (though having just cut them, “m...

Good times, Saturday. As you read this, I’m hanging out at a Gundam Model Build day at a shop on the South Side of town. After that will hopefully be some Guild Ball. I’ve already had my tacos lingua. But as you’re here for a review roundup, let’s get you a review roundup. Tod...

If you’re a regular reader of TGN, you’ve no-doubt seen how, in the past several months, I’ve become a member of the cult of Guild Ball. It has, very quickly, become one of my two favorite miniatures games that currently exist. I was giddy when the fellows over at Steamforged Games asked if I’d like ...

Games Workshop has been rolling out the specialist games one after the other lately. Since the announcement that they were going to be expanding that range, we’ve had Betrayal at Calth, which was Marines vs. Marines. Then there was Deathwatch: Overkill, which gave us Marines vs. Tyranids. And now we ...

It’s another Saturday. Through an odd turn of events, I’m in the office. So Monday and Tuesday I was home because I was sick. Now it’s Saturday and I’m in the office because my internet is broken at home (overnight storm fried my modem). But all is well. Things are getting don...

I don’t particularly have anything against DC Comics, but I’ve always just enjoyed Marvel more. That’s extended from the comics I read in the 90s through the products I see coming out that have the Marvel license. And with the recent upswing in Marvel movies (well, comic book movies in general, to be...

Aaaaaah… Saturday. What a glorious day. What cannot be achieved on such a day as Saturday? Well, I know I can be working on various articles for the site. Hopefully you’re getting in some gaming, like I am, too. At the moment, though, we’ve got ourselves the Review Roundup. In today...

Sure, I’m having myself a blast here at the CMON Expo, but that doesn’t mean I’m too busy to take a bit of time to get you your Review Roundup this week. That just wouldn’t be right. So let’s get to it. Today we have: Team Play, Raid and Trade, Beast of Balka, Witch’s Br...

When hanging out at the LGS, whether it’s during a tourney or just going between games, we all have various ways of transporting our armies from one spot to another. Some people put their figs back into the foam trays or tackle box they came out of. Though that can be really time-consuming. Others wi...

It’s Saturday. Those of you that are at KingdomCon, be sure to selfie responsibly. #RossFace For me, it’s the weekend before CMON Expo, so I’m super-busy getting things put together for the show. Lots to do, both work-related and just other things I need to get done. In the meantime...

In case you hadn’t noticed… It’s Saturday! Woo! Considering time differences and all, I hope a lot of you had a good time at Salute today. Did any of you pick up some awesome stuff while there? I, obviously, couldn’t go (much as I wanted to). I did, however, pick up my limited...

It would seem that everything isn’t right on Ghosar Quintus. The locals have started to talk a bit funny, with sounds of strange aliens entering their speech. Oh, and there’s the Deathwatch Kill Team that’s gone missing. That’s probably a bad sign as well. We should probably send in another to check ...

While I’m not a regular watcher of sports, I would still say that I’m a “sports fan.” My hockey-playing days are long, long behind me, but I still retain a love of sport and the competition of it all. So when I first saw artwork for Guild Ball start to pop up, I was interested […]...

Raise your hand if you’re a fan of Firefly. *watches pretty much everyone’s hand go up* Yeah, me, too. I actually have been meaning to get those DVDs back out and re-watch the series. It’s a sci-fi western done right. Well, now the crazy antics of the Serenity and her crew meet up with the […]...

Well, I’ve had a review of a Leviathan (and then the evil Leviathan), an APC, two different heavy troopers squads, but that still only came out to 13 total models. Time to bulk up my numbers a bit. So I’m going to more than double the number of figures I’ve got put together by assembling […]...
