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. [...

The work week continues along. It’s already half-over, in fact. Hopefully yours is going well. Mine’s not been great, but I’m making it through. Got board game day at the library coming up this weekend again. Should be a good time. But in the meantime, let’s bulk up on some bi...

Well, it’s getting to be bedtime. Gotta get to sleep so I can make the epic migration back to the sauna that is Atlanta in August. I’m going to miss Gen Con. This was a good year. Despite the fact that I didn’t get really much of a chance to hang out with too many […]...

The American West has all sorts of legends and lore associated with it. It’s a time and place set apart from others, and it’s a setting that’s ripe for use in gaming. It’s also very easy to meld into your own thing. Well, Greenbrier Games has done that, giving us a steampunk-w...

So you’re out in the Wild West and you’ve got all sorts of werewolves, werecats, and even some werebears running around. What’re you going to do about it? Build yourself a Werecatcher, of course! At least, that’s what the people in Blackwater Gulch did, and now you can add it ...

We’ve got a spaghetti western here on 36. I like spaghetti westerns. I like the way the boots are all reverbed out walking across the hardwood floor. In fact, everything’s got that big reverb sound. There’s also a new gang available to order for Dead Man’s Hand....

Ah, Sunday. For me, at least, the relaxing day of the week. Sure, there’s chores to do like laundry and cooking for the week, but overall, it’s a day to just relax a bit. Also, I’m told there’s some major sporting event-thing going on today. Ok, I know it’s the Super Bow...

Well, for those of us here in the US, it’s back to the “normal work week” for a few. Thanksgiving was great. I did make soup afterward. I’ve got quite a lot of it. Some will be frozen. Some will be given away. Much will be consumed over the next week. Should stave off any [&he...

Hello there, Wednesday. How are you? I see you’ve brought the Guns ‘N’ Roses weather back with you. And while I know I’m in the minority here in Atlanta when I say, “woo! Rain!” I don’t care. I enjoy it. So there. Along with the rain, Wednesday brings us our ...

I love old Western movies. The “Man With No Name” trilogy is one of my favorite sets of movies. I really do need to get around to watching The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly again at some point, in particular. Afterward, I might just want to play some western-style miniatures games. Thankful...

Well, Gangfight Games has bad news and good news about their recent Kickstarter campaign for the Savage Beasts expansion for Blackwater Gulch. The bad news is that the campaign didn’t fund (which is sad, as I really was hoping they’d make it to the bear stretch goal). However, the good ne...

For Americans, the Old West takes on mythical status. Gunslingers, cowboys, rustlers, marshals, bandits. All of them are larger than life. Famous lawmen and outlaws are still names that people know. Scaldcrow Games is running a Kickstarter for Wild West Horse Opera, their pulp-style Wild West RPG. So...

The Wild West. It’s hard to get more “American” than the wide-open spaces of the prairie. The time right after the Civil War when men were men and women were men, too, holds a lot of nostalgia for Americans. Much of our imagery of “what it is to be an American” comes fro...
