Ah, Camelot. It might be a silly place (where you sing from the diaphragm a lot), but it’s still full of wonders and spectacle. One such spectacle takes the form of tournaments, where knights look to show their prowess in combat against one-another. But, seeing as Merlin is never far away, ther...

When you think of the Guardians of the Galaxy, I’m willing to say it’s a pretty safe bet that you’re thinking of Groot and Rocket Raccoon. While Star Lord may be the leader, and Drax and Gamora certainly have their parts to play, the dynamic duo of a talking (kind of) tree and murde...

And we’ve come to another Saturday. Ah, the possibilities for today. I’m sure a lot of you are spending it at Adepticon. Me? I’ve picked up a bunch of snacks and some drinks and am going to watch some MST3K on Netflix. Because I’m cool like that. 😉 Anyway, I know what you̵...

The Guardians of the Galaxy certainly does have some interesting-looking characters they interact with. One of them is the space pirate, Yondu. I mean, he’s got an arrow that he can control… psychically? Magically? I don’t honestly know. But you don’t want to get hit by it, th...

Some of us love to paint. Some of us don’t. Personally, I fall into the “don’t” category, but I certainly can understand why others do enjoy it. For those that want to have your own RPG minis in the colors you want, you can now pick up the Pathfinder Battles Deep Cuts minis. T...

Somedecade I need to go see the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I’ve heard it’s good. I’m just really lazy when it comes to that sort of thing. Well, apparently, a new one’s coming out soon. To tie-in with it, WizKids is releasing a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set for ...

Just when you thought you were going to have a nice, relaxing weekend, a portal has opened and now hordes of undead are pouring through. I mean, really now. Well, if you’re going to salvage your weekend camping trip, you’d best deal with that. You and your other magic-inclined friends mus...

Hello, Saturday! It… was quite a week, I have to say. Very busy. With all the goings-on for GAMA, I almost forgot that PAX East was going on. Hope everyone is having a good time out there. I’m, obviously, not there. I will be at Adepticon in a couple weeks, though. That’ll be fun. L...

If the gaming community is going to continue to thrive, there needs to be a regular influx of new players. When a group stagnates and doesn’t bring in new players, eventually that group will vanish. But starting in with a game can potentially be rather intimidating. It’s good to have some...

Star Trek Attack Wing has been around for a couple years now. Some of the earlier ships have become hard to find. As such, WizKids’ latest waves have been made up of repaints and reissues of previous ships. Wave 29 will include a new, updated version of Bioship Alpha, of which we get a look [&h...

One thing you’d expect to get in a set called Deadpool & X-Force is at least one Deadpool miniature. You might even expect two or three. Well… never let it be known that WizKids doesn’t name their sets appropriately, as this set is creaking at the seams with Deadpools, of which...

Why don’t we continue our far-East theme with a look at an upcoming release for Star Trek Attack Wing? Seems like a good idea. WizKids is going back through some of their older ships and giving them repaints in the last couple waves. Wave 29 is no different. It will include the U.S.S. Excelsior...

Just about everyone in the Marvel universe has had a Deadpool parody of them at some point, it seems. In this instance, it’s the Hulk that gets the Deadpool makeover. I have to admit, not having read comics for almost 2 decades now, I don’t quite know the circumstances that Wade ended up ...

The Basic Action cards can really be the difference between winning and defeat in Dice Masters. You want to pick ones that help you, while hopefully not giving too much of a benefit to your opponent. Having Basic Actions that are tied to specific types of heroes can help, and that’s just what y...

Both Dice Masters and HeroClix are getting sets, and that means plenty of characters in various forms. The one for HeroClix today is a bit of a mouthful to say. Take a look at Savanti Alfonso Ju...

While comics take place in a world much like ours (except where you can have giant aliens and robots and such, of course), they’re usually a step apart and you don’t get too many real-world crossovers. Well, back in 1978, DC brought boxer Muhammad Ali to their pages where he sparred again...
