The days have circled around again and we find ourselves deposited in a Monday. I hope you had a good weekend. I spent Saturday playing Small World and Ascension with some friends. Then on Sunday I assembled a bunch of another friend’s Guild Ball models, because I enjoy assembling figures and h...

Storytelling is as old as communication. It’s been an integral part of society since we were all sitting around fires, talking about the last mastodon hunt. Since that time, many different games have looked to bring a bit of structure to collective storytelling. The Plot Thickens is one such ga...

The other day, I posted a story about some new flying creatures designed for The 9th Age. People were pretty excited to see the game system get some love. Well, here’s another for you. Hidden Dreams is running an Indiegogo campaign to create a group of Sylvan Elf miniatures for use with The 9th...

Alright, everyone. We’ve made it halfway through the week. With just a bit more work, we can make it once more to the weekend. I’m confident that we’ll be able to do it. But before then, we’ll need to refuel with some bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that’s just wha...

Well, it’s been a bit of a short week here in the office, having only come in Wed-Fri. Though, with having just a little time off from Gen Con, it felt much longer. I’m looking forward to a weekend of doing probably not all that much at all. Just some time to decompress a bit. […]...

Seeing as how Monday I was in a car for about 13-14 hours, I didn’t get a chance to do the regular Terrain Corner piece. So, much as I did Friday, with the combined Snippets/Terrain Corner post, I’m giving you another of those today. Gotta catch back up from Gen Con. Anyway, today we have...

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...

Well, as it so often does, the world has once more come to an end. Damnit, Carl! I told you to not push that big, glowing button on that military console! Now we’re living in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, where resources are scarce, and humanity is just barely scratching by, with rival gangs hu...

The week rolls on. We’ve made it to Wednesday. I’m hoping your week is treating you well. After this, it’s downhill to another weekend. We can certainly make it if we try. Until then, we should stock up on some bite-size gaming stories. And that’s just what we have here. On th...

Well, we know that Blood Bowl will be making its way back to gaming tables in relatively short order. So it’s a good time to get set with a new team (or 20) for when that drops. RN Estudio has made many teams in their day, but they’re never satisfied and want to make even […]...

The relaunch of Blood Bowl is ever-approaching. I know a lot of people are excited about that. Despite only being fan-driven for years now, side companies have made a living by creating alternate teams for the game. Well, MK1881 has a new Beastman team up on Indiegogo....

From my experience, every gamer out there has a game that they’ve been working on in their head. Some even make it to written notes or even a prototype form, but they don’t tend to get much further than that. Well, if you really do want to try and take the plunge into publishing your [&he...

This is actually a relaunch of sorts. Due to a technical error, the original campaign was cancelled. But now they’re back and on Indiegogo. The substance of the campaign is the same, though the goal has been lowered slightly and there’s a shorter, overall, funding period for it....

When out and about, it’s good to have an easy-to-carry game that you can break out whenever you might find yourself with some time to kill. Ideally, you’d have maybe 2 or 3 of these games with you. Well, Senagote, a new deck of cards up on Indiegogo, is 3 games in one deck. So […]...
