This week, to me, is just rocketing by. Though I’m in my Thursday shirt, it certainly feels like it should only be, like Tuesday or something. But no, it’s Thursday. Which, of course, means that, a week from this posting, many of us will be in downtown Indy, chest-deep into Gen Con’...

Acheson Creations is looking to bring you a new miniatures skirmish game. They’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign for Vikings: Great Hall Burning which brings in some all-new terrain, as well as figures commissioned by Company D Miniatures, and rules by Two Hour Wargames. It’s like a Just...

It’s here, ladies and gentlemen. Friday. Gateway to the weekend. The work week is almost over and we just need to push through these last few hours and we’ll be free. Hopefully you’ve got some plans put together. Mine have solidified, with some chill card gaming tonight with a frien...

Well, this has been quite a week. Monday had the site down for reasons that are still not 100% identified (it blipped again a little earlier today, but was once more fixed by our outstanding IT guy, Lucas). Tuesday was busy playing catch-up. Plus, there’s been article-writing and such behind-th...

The week continues along. It’s a shortened week for many of us, but it’s still a week. We’ll make it to next weekend, eventually, though. No worries. But if we want to get there, we should re-energize with some bite-size gaming stories. Today we have: New Magic Tokens Available From...

The week of “getting back to usual” continues along. Of course, we’ll get back off schedule a little, since it’s a 3-day weekend here in the States. But still, good to be on schedule while you can. But, seeing as we’re getting ready for a 3-day weekend, that means we sho...

Man, what a weird week. Sunday was the last day of Expo. Monday was spent partially at the repair shop for my car, and then finding out my bathtub was leaking. The rest of the week has been working from home, waiting for repairmen, dealing with paint and fiberglass fumes, and now I’m taking som...

Hey everyone. As you read this, I’m having a blast here at the CMON Expo. I know I’m going to sound biased, but this really is one of my favorite shows of the year since it’s so calm, cool, and relaxed compared to something like Adepticon or Gen Con. You can just hang out and [&hell...

It’s getting busy here in the office, what with the CMON Expo coming up this weekend. Lots of the usually out-of-office staff are coming in. I baked cookies for the occasion. But it’s not just cookies that will sustain us for the show. We’ll also need to fill up on some bite-sized g...

The busy week of being busy continues on. Yesterday was more of the same. The one thing that’s nice is that, sure, it’s been busy, but it’s been the good, productive kind of busy. So even though it’s a huge checklist I’m working through, things are being checked off. The...

It’s Thursday. You know, having had Monday off, this week is going by nice and quick. I know I’m looking forward to the weekend. Probably gonna swing by the semi-LGS (seeing as how no two places in Atlanta are closer than about an hour’s drive from one-another, especially since all ...

The work week continues along. We’re halfway home (“home” in this case being the weekend, of course). If we’ve made it this far, there’s a good chance we’ll make it the rest of the way. But just to make sure, we should bulk up on some bite-size gaming stories. Toda...

Hey kids. I see from my friends feed that quite a lot of you are headed to Chicago for Adepticon. I really wish I was going. I would be, but there’s a bunch of proofing projects that are coming along, and I know how you gamers get if you have to wait even an extra […]...

Amazing what a difference a week makes. Last week, I was lamenting how long it was all taking. This morning, I woke up and was like, “Whoah… it’s already Wednesday!” That certainly works for me. Faster to get to the weekend, the better. But if we’re going to be going alo...

The weekend is over. I’m sure many of you aren’t all that happy about the. I can’t say I’m thrilled, either. But waddyagonnado? Time marches on! And so should we. We must look forward to next weekend and the hope that it will bring more gaming opportunities. In the meantime, w...

We’ve made it back to Friday. The weekend stretches before us like an empty canvass, ready to be painted with all the colors in life’s palate… Man, listening to Chuck Mangione while typing posts will do something to me, apparently. But anyway, it’s time to stuff ourselves once...

The middle of the week and the start of a new month. 2017 is already 1/12 in the books. January sure did go by quick (at least for me). Before you know it, we’ll be announcing Black Friday sales. Ok, maybe that’s a bit much. Plenty of things to do between now and then. And […]...

And we’re already to Wednesday. It helps the week go along when you’re off on Monday. It’s also my friend Gilbert’s birthday! Yo. Gilbert. You old, dude. Anyway, along with cake and ice cream, we should fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Today on the platter we have: M...

We’re once more halfway through the week. So far, it’s been a pretty standard week. After the chaos of the week before, I’m not complaining about that at all. I’m also not complaining about the temperatures we’re supposed to get to today here in Atlanta. I might just ope...

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. […]...

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...

So, I have made it to Indianapolis for Gen Con. And I’m sitting in my hotel room, sorting e-mails, replying to e-mails, and typing up these posts. I hope you all appreciate it. 😉 😛 Anyway, seeing as it is Wednesday (though it certainly doesn’t feel like it, at least to me), it’s tim...

It’s Friday. So tomorrow’s the weekend. It’s also the last weekend before Gen Con. I know some people that’ll be headed towards Indy as early as Monday morning. That means there’s lots to get done this weekend to prepare for the show. And if there’s lots to get don...

The end is in sight, people! Just another day and a half and we’ll be into “weekend territory” (which, to me at least, starts on Friday evening). We can do it. We’ve come too far to give up now. Just think of all the great gaming that can be had! And if you’re gonna have...

I hope everyone’s Monday is going well and nobody has “a case of the Mondays.” One way to beat the Monday Blues is to talk about gaming (or so I’ve found, anyway). All the stories of what happened over the weekend, recounting epic adventures, or fantasy sports matches, or wiza...

We’re picking up speed, everyone. The weekend is getting ever-closer. It’s time to start making plans for some gaming, if you haven’t already. And if you’re going to be gaming, best to have as good a looking table as you can. So let’s help you out with that some with our...

Football season (well, American football, anyway) is over. But that just means you can move your gridiron action to the gaming table. There’s plenty of fantasy sports games you can enjoy. But if you’re going to be playing those, or other miniatures games, you’ll want a good-looking ...

I just realized that I wear a blue shirt on Mondays. I know you, and The Cure don’t care, but I wanted to mention it anyway. The other thing Monday has going for it is one of our Terrain Corner features we tend to have. Want a kick-ass looking gaming table? These stories can help. […]...

Seriously, is the week just chugging along for the rest of you, too? It is for me. Seems just yesterday I was working on stuff for Monday. Now it’s already Wednesday. I guess being ridiculobusy before Gen Con will do that to you. As usual for a Wednesday, we’ve got our collection of bite-...

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 ...
