Well, we survived the latest round of snow here in Atlanta.

TGN Review Kraken Dice Black Magick Sets

I love dice. That shouldn't come as a surprise to any of you. #NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice

I have bought dice from many companies over the years, but I would have to say that my favorite is Kraken Dice. Brian, Diana, and the rest of the Kraken Krew are just amazing people, and they put out some fantastic dice. Just last week, they sent me one each of the new Black Magick sets they've been releasing. Those that missed out on the first release will get another chance on Tuesday when the second half go up for sale. Those that might be on the fence about them can read on, because...

It's time for another TGN Review. This time around, it's Kraken Dice's Black Magick Dice Sets.

Fridaaaaaaaay!

I know that I just got back into the regular swing of things again, but I'm already ready to just take a couple days off. My weekend will be spent gaming, but of the video variety. Hey, I'm allowed.

Mmmm, Friday. I don't know about you, but I'm planning on relaxing this evening with some pizza and maybe put together some models. Maybe play some Sims 4. Then, tomorrow, go play D&D most of the day and then just hang out with friends afterward. I hope your weekend is just as good as mine is shaping up to be. But before we get there, let's nibble on a couple bite-sized gaming stories.

We're halfway there, folks. Halfway back to the weekend. Woo! After this, it's just that slide downhill. I've got D&D coming up. I'm ridiculously happy about that, as I'm hoping we can finish off the story arc we're currently on. Not that I've disliked the arc, of course, just that it's hitting a climax point and it'll be nice to move on to a new adventure. You don't become an adventurer to stay just in 1 town for your whole career, after all. So, as I get prepped to take over a town because they were allowing an underground slavery ring to operate there, I should make sure I'm well-fed on bite-size gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Roll 4 Initiative Diffusion Dice Up On Kickstarter, Kraken Dice Releasing Trapped Innocence Dice Today, Talk Wargaming Teaches Us About Airbrushing, Impact! Miniatures Presents: The Lost KS Mini Project, and New Dwarves Available From Scibor Miniatures.

We're already at Wednesday. (Wednesday is spelled incorrectly - Demetri Martin) I don't know about you, but at least the first couple days of the week have gone by quickly for me.

Why is it that the weeks leading up to a long weekend are, themselves, the longest damn weeks ever in existence? I swear, it should've been Friday about 3 days ago. I guess it's just all that anticipation of having an extra day to go out and do some gaming. And to everyone already downtown in the heat... well... have fun down there. I'm going to remain OTP, myself. But I'm still going to munch on some bite-sized gaming stories.

As you all know, Friday's my second favorite day of the week (just behind Saturday, and just in front of Sunday), mostly because once I clock out of work, it's time for the weekend! Woo! Of course, it's also a good time to fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

The week is half-over. Tomorrow is Friday Eve and then it'll be Friday. I hope a lot of you are recovering from Gen Con. With any luck, you managed to make it out without catching Con Crud.

TGN Review: Iconic Blue 2 Dice Set From Kraken Dice

#NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice
That’s my honest belief. I mean… I guess if you’re not able to feed or clothe yourself, but you’re buying more dice, that might be too many, but until you reach that point, you can never have enough. A couple months back, people were talking about a website that’ll show you exactly how much money you’d spent on Steam over the years. They were lamenting the thousands of dollars they’d spent. I don’t have a Steam account… but I do have bags and bags and bags of dice. One company I’ve been following a lot lately has been Kraken Dice (I’m sure you’ve all probably noticed). Well, waaaaaay back, I got their Iconic Blue 1 set, one of their first limited edition sets. Well, I just got my Iconic Blue 2 set. And since I did a review of IB1, let’s do a review of IB2.

So, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s Iconic Blue 2 from Kraken Dice.
