It’s Saturday. Those of you that are at KingdomCon, be sure to selfie responsibly. #RossFace For me, it’s the weekend before CMON Expo, so I’m super-busy getting things put together for the show. Lots to do, both work-related and just other things I need to get done. In the meantime...

Time keeps rolling on. And with that, the CMON Expo keeps getting closer and closer. But even with just one week left until the show starts (or really, by the time you read this, less than a week), that doesn’t mean there’s not plenty to still talk about for the show. There’s Panels...

In a group of individuals as you have when dealing with those involved with piracy, you’re going to come across the ones that are just in it for themselves, trying to get as much money as they possibly can, their other crewmates be damned. Normally, such a character on board a ship that require...

Time and time again you have seen me laud the decision of companies coming out with two-player starter sets for their games. You get pretty much all you need to get you and an opponent playing a game as soon as possible. Well, Wrath of Kings has themselves a brand new 2-player starter that you [&hell...

I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand, walkin’ through the streets of Soho in the rain. Ok, being fair, I’ve never been to London, and thus, never to Soho. Maybe someday. I hope I don’t run into any werewolves, though. And while you might run into a werewolf in the Wulfsb...

We’ve made it to Friday, people! This is not a drill! This is not a drill! … It’s a belt sander. But that’s beside the point. We’ve been working all week for this. The weekend is just about here. We must get ready. It seems like a good time to fill up on some bite-sized ...

Yo, ho, ho, and a bottle of Sobe Citrus Energy (being a teetotaler, I don’t drink rum. And besides, the vitamin C will help stave off scurvy). The wild winds in the world of Rum & Bones has brought forth some strange creatures in this Kickstarter campaign. There’s been the denizens o...

I’m a fan of hidden-object games. I used to play a bunch over on Facebook, until it got to the point where you needed friends to tag on things and blahblahblah. Thankfully, if you have a game like that that you play on the tabletop, you don’t have to worry about e-tagging friends. You can...

As you know, I’m a fan of gaming. If that gaming also helps a charitable foundation, then that takes something already pretty cool and just turns the awesome up to 11. The NOVA Open Charitable Auction works to raise funds for charities by selling raffle tickets for armies for various games. The...

At Adepticon, people are able to stand around and chat with game designers about the upcoming projects they have been working on. But that’s a pretty rare thing, in general. Not everyone can make it out to a show. And then, the designer might be busy or such. Panels are one way you can find [&h...

It’s day 3 here at Adepticon. It’s been a wild day… and I’m not even talking about the gaming. We woke up to some lovely weather. And then, just about 10min. ago, for about a minute, the lights all went out in the dealer’s hall/gaming area. I just missed snapping a photo...

Well, we just passed Easter last weekend. A lot of people took the time to go to church, even if they don’t normally make a habit of it (whereas nuns do tend to make a habit of it… Get it? Get it?… never mind). Anyway, the Forsaken are Dark Age‘s religious fanatics and they...

There are many crazy things that live in our oceans. Just the other day I saw this story about some neon-green-eyed fish-thing that they brought up from the depths. Yeah, I really have no desire to go swimming in the ocean, thankyouverymuch. Hell, I might run into a Neritic Horror! At least if that d...
