And just like that, we’ve made it to Thursday. The weekend is almost within our grasp. Hopefully you have gaming-related plans. This weekend is the first Board Game Day up at the Milton Library for the year. They took last November and December off, but they’re back once again. If you don...

The “week of being back to normal” continues. I’m certainly a creature of habit, and so getting back into “the regular swing of things” has been rather relaxing. Plus, there’s some really awesome things going on here at the office that I’ve been part of. I me...

If you want to run a business, there’s a lot of hats that you have to be able to wear. You have to be a creator, a shipper, an accountant, and manager. Even if you have tools to help, such as Kickstarter, your first outing might not be just right. Thankfully, you can always regroup […]...

Hey everyone. Well, the first week of the year is coming to a close. It’s been… an odd one. Monday I had off. Tuesday I had to take my car in for repairs (which got finished up on Thursday, since they had to order in a part). Wednesday and Thursday I had some stomach issues. […]...

It’s the penultimate day of the year. 2016 is on its way out. Lots of people are going to be partying about it. I’m sure some of that will include gaming. At least, I hope it does for you. Anyway, if you’re going to be partying to midnight tomorrow, you’ll want to stock up on ...

Hey guys. You might’ve noticed we didn’t have a Terrain Corner yesterday. That’s because I was whisked away to help work on a super-ultra-deep-covert project. Or, being that a lot of companies are currently on holiday, there wasn’t much to report on. One of the two. Anyway, so...

Well, it’s Monday and we’re back into the office. I can’t say that it was the best of weekends, but at least Sunday was a bit productive. D&D got cancelled due to half the players having outside things they needed to do. Sunday was full of a deep-cleaning of the apartment becau...

It’s already Thursday. At least, for me, this week has gone much like last week. That is to say, it’s gone by very quickly. That’s not a complaint, mind you. However, I do need to actually figure out what I’m going to be doing with my D&D group this Saturday… I̵...

Today’s a day to celebrate. Why? It’s my 5th anniversary with TGN. Yes, on this day, 5 years ago, I made my first post on the site. It was the new plastic Warp Wolf kit that Privateer Press was coming out with. Oh how gaming has changed since then. I remember having a conversation, a [&he...

Well, the weekend is over. Mine didn’t quite turn out like I’d hoped. Didn’t get a chance to do any gaming, but did have a chance to do some cooking. This year’s fruitcake is a success, I’d say. Just need to get more people to give it a try. But anyway, let’s get s...

So the middle of yesterday sort of dragged along, but overall the week is still going by in a flash (for me, at least). Hopefully you have weekend plans like I do. We’re going to be having a build party for my friend’s original Kingdom Death set. Though, really, I’m gonna be trying ...

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...

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...

In a way, it’s Monday, because it’s the first day back in the office after the weekend. But it could also be seen as Wednesday, since it’s only 3 days from being the weekend again (Woo! Thanksgiving! Woo!). But what makes it once more feel like a Monday is that it’s time for a...

At once, it feels both like, “wow. Already Wednesday?” and “wow. How is it only Wednesday?” Is it that way for anyone else or just me? I feel like I’ve gotten a lot done, but have a lot more waiting ahead of me. Ah well. We’ll make it. Break on through to the other...

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...

So, not tabletop gaming related, but as a Chicago native, waking up this morning to hear the Cubs won the World Series was pretty awesome, even though I’ve not followed baseball for quite a long time. Too bad we don’t have MLB Showdown or that MLB Clix game around anymore. Anyway, that as...

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...

To be honest, the week hasn’t really done much to pick up speed at all. It would seem we’re going to be slowly just crawling our way to the weekend. Though it will be worth it when it gets here. I’m heading to the South part of Atlanta to go to a Gundam model-building day […]...

You know… I could’ve sworn that I put a weekend here just a minute ago. Really, my weekend went by ridiculously quick. For example, on Friday, I blinked and suddenly it was 1am. Then Saturday went by in a flash, as I did some more baking before heading to a friend’s party. Sunday wa...
