The week marches on. We’re through the first half and headed towards the finish. Just gotta make it 2.5 more days and it’ll be the weekend once more. The first couple days have been sort of a mixed bag. Hopefully things will smooth out for everyone and we can make it to Saturday intact. W...

Hey kids. We have made it. It’s Friday at last. This certainly has been an eventful week. It’s also gone by quickly, at least for me. I hope everyone at Adepticon is having a good time. If you’re not there, I still hope you have a weekend of gaming planned. And if you’re going...

Hey kids. I see from my friends feed that quite a lot of you are headed to Chicago for Adepticon. I really wish I was going. I would be, but there’s a bunch of proofing projects that are coming along, and I know how you gamers get if you have to wait even an extra […]...

This has been quite a week. There’s been all the excitement coming out of GAMA, with lots of great announcements being made. And tomorrow I’ve got Board Game Day up at the library. I’m feeling a bit drained from it all. Better nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories. Today on the pla...

Well, quite a week we’re having, aren’t we? But that’s what happens during big shows like GAMA. I’m sure all the surprises aren’t finished, either. Well, if we’re going to be hitting F5 on all our gaming sites, hoping for the latest updates, we’ll need to sta...

Amazing what a difference a week makes. Last week, I was lamenting how long it was all taking. This morning, I woke up and was like, “Whoah… it’s already Wednesday!” That certainly works for me. Faster to get to the weekend, the better. But if we’re going to be going alo...

Well, it’s finally Friday. Seems like it’s taken forever. Also, who wants to take bets on me clocking out this evening and then suddenly feeling like I’m clocking in on Monday morning? You know weekends never work like the work week. It’s going to just go by in a flash, I̵...

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 ...

Man, no day has felt entirely “right” this week. Monday was an amalgam of Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Tuesday was like a Monday. Wednesday was kinda like a Friday. Yesterday was like a Saturday, but a lot busier. Today’s… still getting started, honestly. But it doesn’t...

We’re already to Wednesday. That’s what happens when you’ve got a day off at the start of the week. This’ll be my last day here in the old office. We’re moving up the street a couple miles to a new building. Got a couple days at home, though, as they work to finish up so...

It has been a busy week. Work has been full of time working on (redacted). I can’t wait until I can tell you all about it. Other than that, I’m making pizza tonight. And by that, I mean I made my own sauce from scratch, and the dough ball that will be the crust is […]...

The week rolls along (and I’ve got Ace of Spades playing), so you know I’m working at a pretty fevered tempo. If I’m going to keep up this pace as I work on TGN stuff and then get busy with some work on (redacted), I need to get a good meal of bite-sized gaming stories. […]...

The middle of the week and the start of a new month. 2017 is already 1/12 in the books. January sure did go by quick (at least for me). Before you know it, we’ll be announcing Black Friday sales. Ok, maybe that’s a bit much. Plenty of things to do between now and then. And […]...

The weekend is pretty much upon us. We just need to finish up this afternoon and we’ll be there. Do you have plans? I’m still unsure. Though I think I want to make a cheesecake, because it’s been a while since I’ve made cheesecake. Probably make more strawberry-lime sauce to g...

Friiiiiiiidaaaaaaay! Woo! We’ve made it, everyone! At least for me, it was a nice, calm, “standard” week. As a creature of habit, I’m very grateful for that. Many of us here in the US are also getting a 3-day weekend, what with Martin Luther King Jr. Day being this upcoming Mo...

We’re once more halfway through the week. So far, it’s been a pretty standard week. After the chaos of the week before, I’m not complaining about that at all. I’m also not complaining about the temperatures we’re supposed to get to today here in Atlanta. I might just ope...

Hey everyone. Well, the first week of the year is coming to a close. It’s been… an odd one. Monday I had off. Tuesday I had to take my car in for repairs (which got finished up on Thursday, since they had to order in a part). Wednesday and Thursday I had some stomach issues. […]...

It’s the penultimate day of the year. 2016 is on its way out. Lots of people are going to be partying about it. I’m sure some of that will include gaming. At least, I hope it does for you. Anyway, if you’re going to be partying to midnight tomorrow, you’ll want to stock up on ...

The final week of 2016 continues on. I know a lot of people are enjoying a bit of a break here at the end of the year. Many game companies are taking a little bit of time off. But that’s not to say we don’t have a good bit of bite-sized stories to snack on. […]...

Hey guys. You might’ve noticed we didn’t have a Terrain Corner yesterday. That’s because I was whisked away to help work on a super-ultra-deep-covert project. Or, being that a lot of companies are currently on holiday, there wasn’t much to report on. One of the two. Anyway, so...
