Friday Snippets

What a crazy week. Monday off. Tuesday in the office. Wednesday and Thursday at home because of the snow. Today’s back in the office, as I checked the hill at the entrance to my place late Thursday and it’d finally melted enough you could get out. So yeah, kinda odd schedule, but waddyagonnado? It’s winter. That kinda stuff’s gonna happen. It’s also gonna be 60 tomorrow, because this is still Georgia. Also, tomorrow, I’m gonna be doing some gaming. I hope you are, too. And if you’re going to be gaming, you’re going to want to be well-fed on bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Leader Ratss-M1 Battle Tank Now Available From Ratgard, Voting Underway For Best Casual Game of 2017, and Skeleton Warriors Up On Kickstarter.

It’s a cold and snowy day here over in Atlanta. A thin layer of ice is concealed under a small blanket of snow. As such, it’s “work from home” day for the bear. Atlantans tend to have rather dubious driving skills in ideal conditions. Throw in some ice and snow and it’s not so much a matter of being worried about your own car, it’s everyone else flying in every direction you’ve gotta worry about. So I’ll just sit here and snack on some bite-sized gaming stories from the comfort of my den.

On the platter today we have: Reptilian Overlords Releases Enemy Trooper Heads, Dark Art Studios January Sale Happening Now, Daughters of the Orphanage Coming From Raging Heroes, HeresyLab Bringing New Sci-Fi Minis to Kickstarter Soon, and Brigade Models Releases New 15mm Hammer’s Slammers Vehicles.

The weekend is almost upon us! I’m already getting my gaming on today. I’ll be playing some of the Munchkin CCG, as well as perhaps some of the Fallout board game. That’s before I go over to a friend’s place tomorrow to deliver some late Christmas presents (ok, really late)… they’re games. So hopefully we’ll play them some. But if I’m going to be doing all this gaming, I should be well-fed. Good thing I’ve got some gaming stories to nosh on. Including cotton candy dice. Yes, I ordered these dice this morning. #NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice

Today on the platter we have: Cotton Candy Dice Available From Kraken Dice, Goblin Factory Releases New Goblins, and Magnetic Days – 25% DISCOUNT On Magnetic Gear At Tabletop-Art.

Man, for a second there, I almost put in “Thursday Terrain Corner” as the title. Settle down there, bear. The week’s not going by that quickly. But it is continuing along. And being busy is helping make it feel like it’s going. Though I am happy to say it’s not Thursday yet, considering stuff I still need to get done. And if I’m going to be doing all the things (!!!!), I’ll need to be well-supplied with energy. Snacking on some bite-size gaming stories should help.

Today on the platter we have: FlexTale Encounter Generator Up On Kickstarter, and The Painting Frog Talks about GW In South America.

Well, the blustery weather from yesterday is gone. Now it’s just cold. Hopefully the storm didn’t hit you all too bad. I’ve got various friends up north that are dealing with the aftermath, but it’s all not too terribly bad stuff. Though I doubt many are going to be heading to the LGS. Well, they can still stay in and game. And while gaming, they can snack on these bite-sized gaming stories.

Gee. Halfway through the week already? It’s just flying on by. But such is the case, apparently. Man, maybe the whole year will go by this quick.

I did soooo much baking over the weekend.
*someone from the audience shouts out “How much baking did you do!?”*
I did so much that there’s still some of various treats left, even though there’s been a steady stream of coworkers out to the tables where they reside. Though we’re getting down to the last bits. I think it’s just a bit of fruitcake and the candy cane cookies left.
So, in lieu of trying to send those through the screen so you can try them, how about I just give you some tasty, bite-sized gaming stories, instead? Sounds like a plan.

Today on the platter we have: New Annihilation Beamer Available From Kromlech, The Goblin Sorcerer Paper Model Up On Kickstarter, Rebel Minis Christmas Sale Happening Now, and Mother of Dragons Resin Kit Up On Kickstarter.

Hey everyone! We’ve made it to another Friday! Hopefully your week is going well. As we get nearer to the end of the year, mine’s getting busier and busier. Articles, proofing projects, just all sorts of things to work on. It’s going to be a busy holiday. But it’s alright.
Anyway, let’s get to today’s tasty, bite-sized gaming stories.

I just realized this morning that this upcoming weekend is the last one before Christmas.
Ok, so, technically Christmas has one more weekend before it, but since it falls on a Monday, it means this upcoming week is the last one before the holiday. As such, I’ve just now realized how much baking I need to do (since that’s what I give as presents to friends). Looks like this Saturday’s shopping list is going to include a lot of unsalted butter, flour, and chocolate chips, plus whatever else I feel like throwing in. But before I get to those tasty treats, let’s get to today’s tasty treats in terms of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: December Releases Available From Scotia Grendel, War in Christmas Village Sequel Up On Kickstarter, and HeresyLab Working on a New Line of Miniatures.

A cold wind is blowing here in Atlanta. Yes, I know many of you are much colder than we are here, but it was also almost 70F out yesterday. Today it’ll be closer to 45F.

I’ve almost run out of Thanksgiving leftovers. I still have some turkey and some sweet potato casserole, along with just a touch of one pumpkin pie left. BTW: the sweet potatoes still being around are a case of “Save the best for last.” Not to sound haughty, but trying some of it, with a bit of my homemade salted caramel literally had one guest weeping tears of joy. I have witnesses! We’re also snacking on some bite-sized gaming stories. Pretty quick one for you today.

Fridaaaaaaaaay! And a Friday off, to boot! Yes, I know, I’m technically off of work but I’m still typing up posts. That’s because I love you all thaaaaat much! Who do I also love? Our Veterans.

So, before I log off and spend a day just chilling, let’s nom on a quick bite-sized gaming story.

I’m… just kinda chilling. Yeah… just chilling. Not gonna really go anywhere. Not really gonna do anything special. Just… chill. I think it’s a good idea to do that occasionally. And this weekend, it’s what I want/need.

Alright. Playtime’s over. All the spooky kiddie stuff is done with. Time to get the real holiday prep going. Thanksgiving is a mere 4 weeks and 1 day away. This is not a drill. Prep work starts now.

My weekend is going to be chill. I mean… sure, as a polar bear, I’m always chill, but I’m just gonna hang out at home. I’ve actually been meaning to give the place a good cleaning.

Halfway there.
We’re halfway to getting back to the weekend. Methinks I’m going to take it easy this weekend. I found out my LGS is going to be absolutely packed with several events running for games I don’t really play, so I’ll probably just veg at my place. I could use a relaxing couple of days, anyway. Though it does mean I still need to wait to break in my custom Guild Ball mat (more on that tomorrow. Stay tuned). In the meantime, I’m feeling a bit peckish, so how about noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories?

You know me. I love when I see a game be successful on Kickstarter and then be made available to the general market. This is one such success story. Snippets had a good Kickstarter and now you can pick up a copy for yourself. Fun for the whole family, the game is more about creativity rather than just being a walking dictionary.

It’s halfway over. The work week is about half-done for most of us. With any luck, you’re looking forward to a weekend of gaming. I might be doing some of that. But I can guarantee that I’ll be doing some baking. Actually, that’ll start tomorrow. We’re having a chili and dessert cook-off here at the office on Friday. Then, over the weekend, I need to “pay for” a custom game mat design a friend did by baking him some of his favorite treats and sending them off. Hey, the barter system is alive and well among my friends. You do some graphic design for me and I’ll bake cookies and brownies for you. But before we get to those bite-size treats, let’s nosh on some bite-size gaming stories.

Well, the short week that seemed surprisingly long has come to an end. We’re about to make our way back to the weekend. Considering the various things hitting Netflix this past week, I’m guessing a lot of my weekend will involve binging some shows like MLP and Bojack Horseman. But there will still be some gaming going on. That’s just how it goes. In the meantime, I should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
