Saturday Review Roundup

And we’ve successfully made it to Saturday. After the… incredible craziness that was this past week, I’m extremely thankful for just a low-key, simple Saturday. Once I’m done here I’ve got a Colossal to put together for a friend. Then I’m gonna just watch some movies. What movies? … I’ve not really decided yet. Perhaps Snatch, The Blues Brothers, something Monty Python, … obviously I haven’t really decided yet, but it’ll be good to just chill.

Before that, though, I need to get you some review articles. So let’s do that.

Today we have: Savage Forged Miniatures’ Stalker Zed, Crooked Dice Danger 5 7TV starter set, Legends of Andor, Escape Room in a Box, Food Chain Magnate, Blood Rage, Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game, A.D.A.P.T., Pittsburgh 68, Fuse, Karuba, Kemet, Star Wars Timeline, Terra Mystica, Elysium, and Splendor.

When this posts, I’ll be hanging out with Shaughn, our warehouse manager/resident tattoo artist, getting myself my 2nd tattoo. Should be good times.

As I mentioned before, this week really seemed to go by fast. At least I thought so. Here it is, Saturday morning (well, it’s morning when I’m working on this post, anyway), getting ready for a full day of cooking (pot roast and banana pudding cheesecake pie) and thinking, “wasn’t it just Tuesday, like, yesterday?” Anyway, as my day is full of cooking, I hope your day is full of gaming.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Hello there, all you gaming friends out there in gamer-land! Seems for the moment that it’s actually going to be a bit winter-like here in Atlanta. At least for a couple days. No, it’s not like the winters I remember in Chicago, but if we had a winter like that down here, this place would never dig out of that. The whole state would shut down until June. It would be a nightmare.

However, a blizzard’s-worth of reviews here today is just fine. (Because transitions!)

Today we’ve got articles on: X-Wing Miniatures Game, Star Wars Armada, Imperial Assault, Conflict of Heroes – The Eastern Front Solo Expansion, Queen’s Necklace, Terrakami Games Sci-Fi Containers, Crusader A15 by Rubicon Models, Bountytown, Between Two Cities, Bad Beets, Ultimate Warriorz, Jamaica, The Gallerist, Mombasa, Ninja Camp, Shakespeare, Cthulhu Realms, Eternal Dynasty, Outer Earth, Fool’s Gold, and Dark Age Z.

Hello to everyone on this cold Saturday. I hope you’re having a good day. I’m cracking nuts… for that fruitcake I’ve been telling you all about all week. They don’t use the phrase, “nutty as a fruitcake” for nothing, you know. I hope you have your own projects you’re working on, be they gaming-related, culinary-related, or just whatever else you feel like doing.

What I feel like doing at the moment, though, is taking a small break from making small breaks (these are the jokes, people!) and share with you the reviews I’ve come across in the past week.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Hey everyone,
I hope you made it through Black Friday alright. I had Thanksgiving 2: Thank Harder here at the bear den. Made myself another turkey and side-dishes and enjoyed a relaxing day. Then I got out my stock pot and made about a gallon of turkey stock with the bones. I’ll be good for turkey soup for the next year, I’d say.

But that’s as may be, it’s time for some reviews. Let’s get into it.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Welcome once again to Saturday. It’s been quite a morning over here. Rather busy for a Saturday. Biggest thing I’ve been working on is my decision to magnetize my Betrayal at Calth set (yes, this means it’s not 100% assembled yet. The games I’ve been playing of it have been using stand-in figs for much of it. It happens). The only problem comes from maneuvering small, fiddly pieces that, very literally, will move on their own. As such, I have glue all over my fingers. Thankfully, though, on at least one occasion, that’s helped me when my drill bit slipped and instead of giving me a scrape, it just gouged the glue that’d built up there. So, an asset hidden in a liability.

But that’s a story for when I post the review later today. At the moment, we’ve got other reviews/previews to deal with.

In this batch we have: Late French Napoleonic Infantry from Perry Miniatures and Warlord Games, Dark Moon, Clockwork Kingdom, Queen of the Hill, Dice Masters: The Amazing Spider-Man, Conquest at Kismet, Barony, Star Wars Armada Wave 2 Ships, Tides of Time, Pentoggle, Mars Attacks Miniatures Game, Risk: Star Wars Edition, Space Cadets: Away Missions, Bomb Squad, Escape the Nightmare, and T.I.M.E Stories.
