Midweek Snippets

Still working on getting better from this cold. It always seems to take me longer to get back to 100% than it does days that I’m actually feeling sick. It’s like, “Ok, these are the days I’m definitely sick” and then a week of, “I’m hoping this is the last day of this garbage.”
I’m starting to get my appetite back, though. So I’m going to chow down on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today in the platter we have: Treasure Towers Dice Towers Up On Kickstarter, Now available – New Ancestral Ruins bases From Tabletop-Art, Necronomicon Dice Up On Kickstarter, and New Nurgle Trays from Battle Foam: Great Unclean One.

Midweek Snippets

As we hunker down here for what could potentially be the first major winter weather event here in Atlanta (in which the temperatures are supposed to be above freezing, except for an hour or so, I’m not really expecting much of an issue here. Though the Northeast looks like it needs to brace itself), we think about what we could be doing with all that potential time spent huddled in our homes, unable to go out. So how about some gaming! Seems like a perfect time. So we’ve gathered together some bite-sized gaming stories for you to snack on.

Today’s stories include: Prime Battlewalker Arms Available From Puppets War, House of Borgia Coming to Kickstarter, Blood Rage Foam Trays Available From Battle Foam, New Iron Reich Orc Taskmaster with Gnaw Hound Available From Kromlech, and New Biomechanic Heads Available From Tabletop-Art.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Hey everyone,
I hope you made it through Black Friday alright. I had Thanksgiving 2: Thank Harder here at the bear den. Made myself another turkey and side-dishes and enjoyed a relaxing day. Then I got out my stock pot and made about a gallon of turkey stock with the bones. I’ll be good for turkey soup for the next year, I’d say.

But that’s as may be, it’s time for some reviews. Let’s get into it.

Today we have articles on: Magic the Gathering Arena of the Planeswalkers, Dirty Tactics Toolbox for Pathfinder, Battle Foam P.A.C.K Molle Accessories, Mafia de Cuba, Porta Nigra, Risk: Star Wars 2015 Edition, Flip City, Xia: Legends of the Drift System, and Doomtown Reloaded.

Be sure to check out everything in their Kickstarter campaign. They’ve unlocked a ton of stuff and still have 10 days to go.

So sign up and get yourself some nice goodies for the show.

And if that weren’t enough (it never is for you people!

Battle Foam previews new Sword bag (for minis, not swords. But possibly minis with swords)

Battle Foam has a new gaming bag available to pre-order. This one doesn’t have the hard plastic case inside of the canvas, so it’s a bit cheaper than their other bags.

From the release:

The Battle Foam Sword Bag is the ideal bag for the Gamer on a budget.

Not only does this bag come at an amazing price but it also uses our Battle Foam SD trays that measure 13″ x 7.75″. This even allows customers to use existing foam trays from other companies due to the common foam size.

This bag is made with a grey canvas material for added durability and long life. There is one pocket on each side of the bag as well as the back and there are four on the front to store books and other gaming accessories.

Unlike the P.A.C.K. System bags, this bag is not made with a hard plastic inner shell and will collapse when not filled with foam. This is what allows for the amazing price point of only $36.99 empty.

This bag can also be ordered with a standard or pluck foam load out for only $61.99.

The bag can hold 11″ of foam when full and is due to release Oct 1st. Pre-orders are available now
