Friday Snippets

It’s Friday! Woo! We all know how much I love the weekend. Do you have any gaming plans? I know a lot of you are at/will be at the UK Games Expo. For me, I just got my “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Tiamat” yesterday from Bones III, so I’ll be putting that together. But whatever it is you might be doing, you’ll probably want to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Astropolis II – The Galactic Melting Pot Up On Kickstarter and New War Bull Available from Scibor.

Midweek Snippets

The week continues along, as it tends to do. It’s only just today that I really realized that this upcoming weekend is a long one for those of us here in the US. The 4th of July falls on Monday. So that’ll be cool. Time for some BBQs. But before we get to the hamburgers, hot dogs, and fireworks, we’d best fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: Khurasan releases 15mm Ancient Siamese, Trailer Park Zombies Up On Indiegogo, Dwarven Mountain Rams Riders from Scibor Now Available, New Player Boards for Power Grid by CorSec Engineering, Attaking the Darkness Mockumentary is free until July 1st, New Ravens Available From Tabletop-Art, Big Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest Update, Casual Game Insider Coming to Books-A-Million And Launching New Kickstarter, Wildside Gaming System to be Released as a Free App, Skirmisher Publishing Releases Quantum Flux: Unique Superscience Artifacts, Syrinscape Releases Gen Con Soundset, and New Legionary Ranged Arms Available From Kromlech.

Taking a break from the RPG Kickstarters for a minute.
Is the week going by quickly for anyone else? On my ride in to work today, I looked down at my dashboard and saw my odometer and, for a moment, went, “why is that so high? It’s only Tues… oh… wait… it’s Wednesday. Ok, that makes sense.”
But seeing as it is Wednesday and all, we should have ourselves a Midweek Snippets.
Man, this is also the first Wednesday in a couple weeks where I don’t have tomorrow off. Makes me a little sad, but I’ll get through it, somehow.

Anyway, today’s batch of bite-sized stories includes: Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities for a Wizard’s Tower, New Year’s Sale Happening Over at Advanced Deployment, Pulposaurus Entertainment Updates About the future of Conan: Rise of Monsters, New Praetorian Helmeted Heads From Puppets War, Chemical Spill: the Chemistry Card game: two weeks left on Kickstarter, Massive Awesome Announces Launch Date For Shattered Earth Kickstarter, Purgatory Posts New Previews, New Year’s Sale From Dark Art Miniatures, Iron Cross Miniatures Posts New Fireteam Release, New Dwarf King from Scibor, Too Fat Lardies Christmas Special, BattleGateGames Releases New Bust, New Battlefields XP Tufts From The Army Painter, ArmiesArmy 15mm Cold War Kickstarter is Live, New Paint Storage Systems from Burn In Designs, New Lower Pricing on Legends of Kalidasia Starter Sets, New Releases Available From Hinterland Miniatures, “Shieldwolf vs Orcs” launches on Kickstarter Tuesday 12th January, and Chicago Shootout reaches 50% funded on Kickstarter.

Welcome to Wednesday you wonderful … umm… something-gaming-related-that-begins-with-W! The first half of the week is over. It’s all downhill from here to a hopefully gaming-filled weekend. I’ve got my plans set, heading over to a friend’s house for his birthday party where there will be plenty of gaming to be had. I don’t know of anyone else more into gaming than Joe-Nathan, so it should be a blast.

Anyway, that’s as may-be. At the moment, we’ve once more collected the bite-sized stories together we’ve found over the past couple days and present them to you now on a silver platter we like to call “Snippets.”

You’ve survived another week! You deserve something special. You know, you’ve worked hard. Take the next two days off, on me. (Note: offer only valid if you work Monday-Friday. I don’t need anyone messaging me saying I got them fired over the weekend. 😛 ) Hopefully you have some gaming action lined up. My D&D got moved to next weekend. So this weekend I’m getting my tattoo finally colored in. I’m rather excited. I’ve been wanting to finish the piece for months now.

For those that don’t know, I’ve got the werebear artwork, done by the legendary and world-famous Heath “BA” Foley, from Blackwater Gulch on my upper right arm. Yeah, it’s a bear and has gaming ties. What sort of game-related tattoos do the rest of you have? Share yours and there may be a special prize in it for one lucky commenter. (do try and keep photos work-appropriate, as much as possible, please)

Anyway, on to the bite-sized stories we’ve collected in the past couple days.
