With the drive to Indy yesterday, I obviously didn’t have much of a chance to make posts (and no, trying to type in the car all day was not an option. I would’ve gotten all the carsick). So today I bring you both the Midweek Snippets and today’s Terrain Corner together again in one ...

This week, we are certain to see lots of awesome-looking terrain tables during Gen Con. If you want your table to look as good, you’ll probably want to check out what sort of terrain is being offered up by various vendors. Conveniently, we’ve put all of those together in one place for you...

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 ...

Well, we’ve painted ourselves into a corner… a Terrain Corner! Look, it’s a busy week. Not all the jokes are going to be good ones. But that doesn’t change that it is once again Thursday and so that once again means a Terrain Corner segment of the show. Today we have: Tabletop...

Did anyone else’s weekend just fly by? Heck, all of last week seemed to just rocket by. I usually end up with the same checkout clerk at the grocery store, since I go fairly early on Saturdays and there’s only a couple lanes open. I remember saying, “… didn’t we just do ...

The week rolls on. We’re once again at Thursday. Never could get a handle on Thursdays… But that’s between me and my bathrobe. At the moment, the focus is on making your gaming tabletop look as good as possible. That’s right, it’s our Terrain Corner segment. A quickie fo...

The weekend is over and we’re once more back to the regular work week. Hopefully yours was good. I got my Age of Sigmar box set all put together. I had no major mess-ups during assembly. Though my right thumb does hurt from getting stabbed repeatedly by little, plastic spikes. Both the Sigmaran...

Hi. I’m Norm Abram. Welcome to “This Old Gaming Table.” … Ok, I’m not really Norm Abram. And this is Terrain Corner. But trust me, if I could get Norm Abram to guest-star in one of these posts, I damn-well would! Anyway, we’ve collected various terrain-related stor...

Back to the daily grind here on Monday. I’ve brought in cookies and cheesecake to the office that I made over the weekend. I probably shouldn’t have a whole cheesecake and 2 dozen cookies sitting at home. I’m already pushing my way out of “Gamer Medium” into “Gamer...

Welcome once again to the Terrain Corner, where we collect together articles we’ve come across over the past couple days that deal with making your gaming table look the best it can. That coffee mug and stack of books won’t cut it anymore. You need to get some real terrain out there. Or a...

Monday, Monday. (ba-la, ba-la-la-laa) Hopefully you had yourself a good weekend. It was rather busy for me. Lotsa gaming. Lotsa laughs. Lotsa pizza and Dew (because, you know, gamers). Heck, there was even The Gamers. But that is the past. The present is a new Terrain Corner post, where we gather tog...

Busy Sunday here at the bear cave. The past couple days have been full of classic D&D action, and now it’s catch-up-with-all-the-work time. For the record, the DM of the game I played in knows me well. He picked a Totemic Druid for me to play and, of course, picked polar bear as my totem [...

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 ...

Waterloo. It was 200 years ago. One of the battles that set the course of history after it. I’d like to think you’ve heard about it by now if you’ve been paying attention to the site at all, since… yeah, we’ve had a lot of companies doing things in honor of the anniversa...

June 1967 was a good month for Israel’s military. In the course of just six days, they defeated their enemies. A major battle during the conflict was fought at the old Turkish fort of An-Nakhl. Battlefront has a new Desert Fort kit coming out and figured people might want to recreate the battle...

It’s Sunday (at least at time of posting in much of the world… stupid time zones…). I hope you were able to get out and get some gaming on yesterday (or perhaps some today). My party did not get TPK yesterday. Though some party relations were strained a bit. Remember, everyone, comm...

Welcome back, TGN Readers. The week is half-over. Or it’s half-started. I guess that depends on if your an optimist or a pessimist. Or how much you liked last weekend versus are looking forward to the one about to come up. Or some other psychology stuff that doesn’t really matter right no...
