I do so love a campaign system for games. I’ve never been too hot on tournaments. Too much pressure all at once. But a nice campaign, over the course of a couple weeks or months, spreads all of that out and is just more enjoyable, in my experience. Well, Mantic is giving players the tools [&hel...

Getting into a new game, or even just a new force within a game you already play, can be a bit of a chore. Trying to figure out what all you need isn’t always the easiest to figure out. That’s where ready-to-play (once assembled, anyway) army forces can really help out. In the case of [&h...

You might think to yourself, “man, all these zombies around here. I should just blast myself into space. It’s probably safer there.” But that might not actually be the case. There’s war among the stars, too. So you might as well pick your poison. Take on some new releases for ...

But, but but… it’s Wednesday! I know. I know. But this has been a strange week. Got home from the Expo the other day and spent the first part of Monday at the mechanic to get my car checked out. Then got home and found that, due to a crack in my tub underneath my […]...

Well, it’s Thursday. This week has gone by super-fast, mostly because of how busy it’s been. But that’s what happens the week before a show. Also, we’ve had a lot of people in the office to help prep. So that makes time go by, too. At the CMON Expo, there’ll be plenty of...

Well, we knew it was inevitable. The weekend has come to an end and we’re back at the start of the work week. Though, at least for me, this is no ordinary work week. CMON Expo is this upcoming weekend. If you’ll be in the Atlanta area, you should stop by and say, “hi.” But [&h...

As you all very well know, I’m a “try before you buy” sort of gamer. If I can even just get a read of the rules beforehand, it’ll really help me decide if a game’s for me or not. With so many out there (and more coming all the time), I certainly can’t play them [&h...

The busy week of being busy continues on. Yesterday was more of the same. The one thing that’s nice is that, sure, it’s been busy, but it’s been the good, productive kind of busy. So even though it’s a huge checklist I’m working through, things are being checked off. The...

So, the thing with Kickstarter exclusives is that you can’t sell them after the Kickstarter campaign, but you can give them away as promotional materials. I’ve learned this over the years, seeing how they’re handled. It’s a good way to still get those items, though it can some...

Well, I’m coming to realize that this is not going to be a regular week. With all the prep and hype for GAMA last week, even though I realize that I leave for Adepticon this week, it’s still sort of a, “oh yeah, that…” instead of, y’know, “Oh yeah! That!!R...

Wherever gamers get together to game, there’s going to be the question of, “who is the best at this game?” So you pair off and fight it out (on the tabletop, of course), looking to work your way to the top table and come out the champion. Nothing wrong with the good, healthy spirit ...

Is this week going by slowly for everyone else, too, or is it just me? I don’t know if it’s because I’m working from home as the new office continues to be set up, or if it’s just that this week is one that’s taking forever. Maybe it’s that I don’t currently ...

The Walking Dead has gone through many characters over the course of its run. Some you’re happy to see make it away from the horrors of the zombies and murderous other humans. Others, you’re happy to see them get eaten. But that’s half the fun. Well, Mantic is letting you bring a bu...

Bloop! Bloop! Bloop! I still really never want to go out into the ocean. There’s all sorts of things out there that we may never fully know about. And while the chances that there’s a race of super-intelligent fish-people with their own civilization are pretty low… we don’t re...

We’ve all had that Kickstarter that we missed out on that we really wish we’d been part of. Maybe the money’s just not there, or you happened to just miss that it was running, or whatever. Well, for many companies, you don’t have to wait all the way until general release to ge...

There’s a lot of things that live out in the ocean. Whales, fish, squid, whale-fish-squid-men… It’s that last group that you should really worry about the most. But if you can take control of those fierce fighters, you can not only control the waves, but potentially the land, too. B...
