This has been quite a week. Deadlines. The website acting up. Just lots going on. I’m very much ready for the weekend. Tomorrow I’m headed up to the LGS to pick up a Guild Ball figure they got in for me, as well as hopefully playing a game of the aforementioned game, plus just hanging [&h...

Well, this has been quite a week. Monday had the site down for reasons that are still not 100% identified (it blipped again a little earlier today, but was once more fixed by our outstanding IT guy, Lucas). Tuesday was busy playing catch-up. Plus, there’s been article-writing and such behind-th...

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...

The week continues along. It’s a shortened week for many of us, but it’s still a week. We’ll make it to next weekend, eventually, though. No worries. But if we want to get there, we should re-energize with some bite-size gaming stories. Today we have: New Magic Tokens Available From...

The weekend is just about upon us, everyone. For those in the States, it’s a 3-day weekend for many. Here’s to hoping that you’ve got some gaming plans lined up, along with whatever other activities you might have planned. It’s the unofficial start of summer, so go to the pool...

The week of “getting back to usual” continues along. Of course, we’ll get back off schedule a little, since it’s a 3-day weekend here in the States. But still, good to be on schedule while you can. But, seeing as we’re getting ready for a 3-day weekend, that means we sho...

Man, what a weird week. Sunday was the last day of Expo. Monday was spent partially at the repair shop for my car, and then finding out my bathtub was leaking. The rest of the week has been working from home, waiting for repairmen, dealing with paint and fiberglass fumes, and now I’m taking som...

If there’s one thing I can use this week, it’s a pick-me-up. As you saw from this morning’s Podcast Roundup post, it’s been quite a couple of days since Expo over the weekend. I need to energize with some bite-sized gaming stories. Today on the platter we have: New Hunter̵...

Hey everyone. As you read this, I’m having a blast here at the CMON Expo. I know I’m going to sound biased, but this really is one of my favorite shows of the year since it’s so calm, cool, and relaxed compared to something like Adepticon or Gen Con. You can just hang out and [&hell...

It’s getting busy here in the office, what with the CMON Expo coming up this weekend. Lots of the usually out-of-office staff are coming in. I baked cookies for the occasion. But it’s not just cookies that will sustain us for the show. We’ll also need to fill up on some bite-sized g...

Friday! Woo! *runs around with arms over my head* Yeah, I’m excited for the weekend. Some of the toy soldiers I ordered a couple weeks ago finally came in at the LGS (yes, it’s Guild Ball stuff) and so I’m planning on being there bright and early at 10am when they open to get ’...

Busy weeks tend to be fast weeks. This is a busy week, and therefore it is a fast week. I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already. Soon, it will once again be the weekend. Have you gotten your plans set? Mine are still a bit up in the air. The Hunter’s Guild releases didn’t come ...

Friday is once again upon us. Gateway to the weekend. So many possibilities. I’m as busy as a one-armed paper hanger. Making all sorts of things in prep for tomorrow’s MST3K binge party. I hate to go to a gathering empty-handed, so I’m making brownies, cookies, and prepping stuff so...

The work week continues along. We’re halfway home (“home” in this case being the weekend, of course). If we’ve made it this far, there’s a good chance we’ll make it the rest of the way. But just to make sure, we should bulk up on some bite-size gaming stories. Toda...

Well, after what seemed like two Thursdays in a row, we have made our way, finally, to Friday. And I, for one, welcome our new almost-weekend overlords. With any luck, your weekend will be filled with gaming. If not, I still hope it’s restful. But before we can get there, we should fill up on [...

The week rolls along, just as the thunder outside rolls along. I have to say, obviously I hope that everyone stays safe and there’s no property damage, but at the same time, the Midwesterner in me is going, “Squeee! Thunderstorms! Yay!” I miss the storms that’d roll through Ka...

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...

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...

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 ...
