Friday Snippets

Hello, Friday, my old friend.
This has been the first full-week of the year, methinks. Like, ok, I know that we’re already into February, but I think this might be the only week where I’ve been up and into the office each day. Just been that type of year so far, I suppose. What might help is bulking up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: The Army Painter Announces New Zombicide: Green Horde Paint Sets, Dice Coins Up On Kickstarter, Muddleflog Paper Miniatures Are Now Available, and New Oval Ancient Machinery Bases Available From Tabletop-Art.

Save the Day Advanced Rulebook Now Available

Many of us wish that we were superheroes. Unfortunately, spider bites, gamma radiation, and cell mutations don’t really work that way. But we can still live vicariously through our RPGs, such as Save the Day. If you’ve wanted a bit more nitty-gritty with your comic action, you’re in luck. The new Advanced Rulebook is now available.

Reasons why today’s pretty awesome:
1) It’s Friday
2) It’s going to be a 3-day weekend
3) We’ve got our chili and dessert cook-off today
I mean… how does it really get much better than that? Well, I guess I could be gaming afterward. But I don’t have any lined up for the evening.
But in the meantime, let’s nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Sci-Fi Mini Available From Brother Vini, Darkfast Classic Fantasy Paper Miniatures Returns, Weekend Sale at Kromlech, and New Grim Reaper Minis Available From Tabletop-Art.

Friday Snippets

Fridays are generally pretty cool. But this is the last Friday before Gen Con. As I’ve been talking with a few people today, when they say, “are you ready for Gen Con?” my answer is, “you’re never 100% ready for Gen Con. You’re just ‘as ready as you are when Gen Con runs into you’.” I don’t know about you, but I’ve gotta do a ton of stuff in the next couple days before I leave next week. It’s going to be a busy weekend. And that means I should fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories so I can keep my energy up.

Today we have: New Dvergr Commando Medic Available From Kromlech, Save the Day: Local Heroes Paper Minis Now Available, and HDF Base Weekend Special From Kromlech.

We’ve made it to the halfway mark. Just the rest of today, and then two full days and we’ll be back into the sweet embrace of the weekend. How will you be beating the heat? Inside gaming? Outside trying to catch them all? A little of both? Just be sure to hydrate. A group of friends want to wander around downtown Atlanta on Sunday… when it’s supposed to get to 99F out. Whoof.

So it should be almost no time before I’m headed home for a lovely weekend of… I’m not 100% sure what I’ll be up to this weekend. Having spent the last two Saturdays driving ~9 hours, if I just was to chill at home, I’d be able to handle that.
