It’s Monday and I’m back in the office after a long weekend. Unfortunately, gaming plans fell through, but it was still a decent weekend. There’s always next week. Gotta get my S3 Guild Ball on at some point. But at the moment it’s about making your gaming tables look good. To...

I technically have the day off today. Why? Because CMON went public on the Hong Kong stock exchange and they’re giving us the day off to celebrate. But the news doesn’t stop just because the office is closed. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor slush, shal keep me from giving you your ...

It’s December. Yesterday, we had some pretty nasty storms roll through here in Atlanta. Today, it’s definitely a bit cooler than it had been. Sure, a high of 54 might not seem too cold to someone in Chicago (where I grew up). But it’s colder than the 70s it’d been the previous...

The first couple days went by slowly, but since then, at least for me, the week’s felt like it’s picked up steam and we’re rushing our way towards the weekend. I know I could use some relaxation time, and I just lined up a day of gaming on Saturday. So that should be good. Hopefully...

Not sure why, but this week’s been a time enigma. I woke up this morning going, “wow, already Wednesday!” But since I’ve been here at the office, it’s been the exact opposite. “How is it only 10am? I feel like I’ve been here forever!” What might help is...

Here in the northern hemisphere, it gets pretty cold in January. Even in many of the regularly-warm sections of the place, it can get kinda cold. Thankfully, Privateer Press is bringing some warmth to your tabletops with a bunch of Protectorate of Menoth releases (there’s also a Retribution and...

Ages ago, the DownFall caused the world to shatter. Now, adrift in an endless sky, various islands of solid ground hover. Between the skylands, the Kin ply their skyships in the ever-gusting wind. They do a heavy trade in lost technology, all while keeping aware of the Children of the Dark, who inhab...

You get 54mm dinosaur minis. If that didn’t get you to go check out the campaign for Sauriana, I’m not sure what more you would need. But in an effort to not just make this post a single sentence and a link, I’ll elaborate. The game is set in an alternate version of the 19th [&helli...

It’s the end of the 19th Century. Technological innovations have made it so man and machine have taken to the skies in large numbers. Smoke-belching behemoths ply the airways as they patrol for enemy flying ships. The enemy is spotted! To battlestations! Wings of smaller aircraft take off, look...

Many times now you’ve probably read about my love of the 2-player starter box for games. My first foray into miniatures gaming was via a 2-player starter. It’s a great way to rope in… I mean… join in with a friend and have ready-to-play forces (once the glue dries, generally, ...
