Ok, so I was being a little facetious, saying that we were expecting a Snowpocalypse here in Atlanta, with the little bit of snow that was coming down at the time… but… yeah… we had a bit of a Snowpocalypse. That was the view from my front door last night and it was still much [&hel...

It’s Saturday. Usually, that would mean gaming. But Friday meant gaming for me, as a friend came over after work and we played some Guild Ball, Bunny Kingdom, and Apotheca. Great way to spend a Friday. So, what am I up to Saturday? Well, I’m in the CMON Offices, helping pack orders for th...

It’s not just Saturday. It’s a 3-day weekend Saturday! The best kind of Saturday! (well, except for 4-day weekend Saturdays, or week-off Saturdays, but let’s not get pedantic here) I’m just kinda chillin’ today. Why go and run yourself ragged? Instead, I’ll just ha...

Let’s see if the system decides to eat this one or not. Anyway, it’s Saturday, and that means I’m happy. I’ve been doing various domestic things this morning in order to be ready for when a friend comes over for some gaming (Guild Ball and Ascension are the most-likely games t...

Man, it’s hard to think that Gen Con was a week ago. At this point, the show was more than half-over. How time flies. Hopefully everyone was able to recuperate well. I seem to have missed out on getting Con Crud. So that’s good. My feet were feeling just fine again by Tuesday. So thatR...

I know. I know. I know. It’s Tuesday, not Saturday. But I was a tad busy Saturday, if you didn’t notice. 😉 So, after flying home yesterday, and then getting around 12 hours of sleep overnight, I’m looking to get back into the swing of things here. Most companies “shut downR...

Usually, I’m all like, “hey! It’s Saturday! Go get your gaming on!” and, in a way, I’m still that. But I’m also, “It’s the Saturday before Gen Con… … … I Have So Many Things I Still Need To Do!!!” A couple people have asked me, &...

Blame Canada (Day), but it seems that the post got eaten by the system. It happens occasionally, but it’s alright. We can rebuild it. We can make it stronger, faster, better… Or mostly the same but with this new intro. Anyway, this week we have: Werewords, Caverna: Cave vs Cave, Not Alone...

I know. I know. This was supposed to go up yesterday. Well, WordPress has been flaky lately and it missed its posting window. Hence why it’s going up now with a reworded opening talking about it not being posted on Saturday instead of saying, “I’m going to the LGS and gonna pick me ...

And we’ve come to another Saturday. Ah, the possibilities for today. I’m sure a lot of you are spending it at Adepticon. Me? I’ve picked up a bunch of snacks and some drinks and am going to watch some MST3K on Netflix. Because I’m cool like that. 😉 Anyway, I know what you̵...

Ah, Saturday. And it’s Games Day at the Milton Library. So, of course, that means it’s raining. Funny how that seems to be happening. 3rd weekend of the month, we’ve got some rain. But, seeing as I like rain, it’s all good. Rain and gaming. Seems great. Anyway, we’ve got...

Hello, Saturday! It… was quite a week, I have to say. Very busy. With all the goings-on for GAMA, I almost forgot that PAX East was going on. Hope everyone is having a good time out there. I’m, obviously, not there. I will be at Adepticon in a couple weeks, though. That’ll be fun. L...

First part of the weekend is already a success. The pizza last night was pretty much everything I could’ve hoped for. It’s nice when a week-long cooking project turns out good (ok, the pizza doesn’t really take a week to make, but parts I was able to do ahead of time like render the...

Hey there, everyone. I hope you’re all having a great Saturday. I just got back from the grocery store (I’m typing this up a decent amount earlier than it is set to go live) so I can get ready to have some company over for a low-key Halloween party. I’m making cookies, chocolate-coa...
