We’re just a couple days away from October. That means a whole new set of releases coming soon from Plaid Hat Games. But what, exactly, is coming out? And when will it be available? All your questions will be answered. (well… those two questions, at least… But not, like, anything re...

I know it seems like we just got an announcement about new Ashes expansions. And we did. But Plaid Hat Games is also letting people know about some tweaks they’ve been doing to the rules that will be rolling out soon, too....

The folks over at Plaid Hat Games have been very busy lately. Some of that is because they are under the umbrella of Asmodee now. But some of that is because they’ve been developing new, deluxe expansions for Ashes, their fantasy card game. They have announced that there will be two new sets co...

I do greatly appreciate a well-done cosplay (or even not-so-well-done). It’s just another aspect of our hobby, really. It takes a lot of time, research, skill, and dedication. Certainly it takes a lot more work than I’ve ever considered putting into it. Though if I could, I certainly woul...

Waiting to see how a game does when it’s released on the market is a smart way to make sure resources are spent appropriately. Such has been the case for Plaid Hat Games and Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn. The initial set has had some time to percolate among the gaming populace and, as such, [&...

And we find ourselves once more deposited here on the weekend. With any luck, yours includes gaming of some kind. Be it CCG, LCG, RPG, Minis, or something else (hey, someone out there might still be playing with POGs, you never know…), may the odds be in your favor. As it is Saturday (most belo...

Did you know that Gen Con is next week? I know. We’ve not really been talking about it much, so you might’ve missed the subtle and scattered news stories about it. It’s ok. We forgive you. Anyway, Plaid Hat Games will be at the show, and they’ve got plenty in store for the wee...

Cosplaying. While some take an unpleasant view of it, I do not. I see it as no less a part of our hobby than taking a lot of time and effort to paint up an entire army of miniatures. It takes a lot of time, dedication, and often is very costly. And honestly, who doesn’t […]...

I often get pre-production copies of games. They come in all types, from really early prototypes that have, literally, duck tape and pieces of cardboard boxes as components, to ones that are about 95% of what the finished game would really look like (maybe they just get a little extra polish and R...
