So, my weekend was filled with gaming and cooking. For gaming, on Saturday we played some Ascension, some Dogs of War, and some Ninja Camp. We also talked a bunch about a 5th edition game coming up. As for cooking, I made two batches of dark chocolate brownies (one with white chocolate chips and caye...

The week continues to just move right along. Apparently it’s not going fast for everyone, as our video guy has said he thought it was Thursday about 2 days ago. But hopefully your week isn’t dragging along like that. And hopefully you have a weekend full of gaming to look forward to. And,...

The weekend is over. It’s back to the office. But, hopefully, you got some gaming in over the past couple days. Me? I played some Guild Ball (Masons beat the Morticians) and then some Dogs of War (my favorite game that CMON makes). I also got to watch a game of On Her Majesty’s Service. [...

Hello there, Thursday. How’s things? That’s good to hear. You know, it’s almost time for the weekend. I know, you feel sad because you’re always almost to the weekend, but never there, yourself. That’s gotta be rough. But hey, at least you get to help people make their g...

And we’ve circled back to Monday. I hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine… didn’t quite go as planned. But sometimes that just happens on weekend, right? Ah well, there’s always next weekend to hopefully make up for it. In the meantime, let’s try and make sure your gami...

The work week continues on. As we make our way towards the weekend, the mind turns to gaming (at least, mind does). And seeing as much of the time, that gaming takes the form of a minis game or an RPG, it also means I’m thinking about terrain. You want your tables to look good, […]...

The attendees of Gen Con often get a chance to pick up minis before they’re available to the general public. Such was the case with those that stopped by the Red Republic Games booth, as they could get themselves Valen, as well as the new gaming mat. Fret no longer, those that couldn’t ge...

Hard to believe we’re already into September. There’s been a lot of cool things that’ve come out this year. One of which is Halo: Ground Command. Spartan is working on sending those out to everyone that ordered (there’s been a bit of a back-log, but they’re working throu...

Usually, I would start this post with talking about how it’s Monday and it’ll be ok because the weekend will be here soon. For many of you readers in the US, though, you’ve got the day off. Obviously, since you’re reading this, I don’t have the day off (though I guess I ...

I had myself a pretty good weekend. Got some Guild Ball in both Friday and Saturday. Made some Italian Beef and chocolate chip cookies. I played some Usual Suspects. It was a good time. Though I need to get my group to start using terrain on our Guild Ball pitches. What sort of terrain? Well, [&helli...

I have to admit, I was really kinda hoping today was going to be Friday when I woke up. Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with Thursday. It’s just that… well… it’s not Friday, is it? It’ll be ok, though. We’ll get to Friday soon enough (that’s ...

Well, as always happens, we’re back to Monday. I hope you had a good weekend, full of gaming. My Saturday certainly was. Guild Ball, Wizard, Apples to Apples. Good times (especially when you win 12-0 in Guild Ball 😉 ). So, while there wasn’t much in the way of terrain being used, that doe...

It’s still really hot here in Atlanta. Personally, with Gen Con being over, it’s “autumn” in my mind. I realize that the official season doesn’t start for a month still, but my grocery store already has Halloween decorations for sale (so, to you that think the Christmas ...

Well, this last weekend was certainly less exciting than the one before. But taking a couple days to just kinda relax was nice. Also, it gave me a chance to put together my models I’d picked up at the show. So that was nice. Next week, a friend is having a board game day at […]...

Seeing as how Monday I was in a car for about 13-14 hours, I didn’t get a chance to do the regular Terrain Corner piece. So, much as I did Friday, with the combined Snippets/Terrain Corner post, I’m giving you another of those today. Gotta catch back up from Gen Con. Anyway, today we have...

We’ve made it to Thursday, everyone. Is it just me or has the week sort of slowed to a halt? I think it’s because next week’s going to be a short one. As such, we have to make this week longer to compensate. Otherwise, space-time and all that gets messed up. Thankfully, Powerhouse i...
