Year 2015

Day 2 is about to be in the books (as it's only got about 15min. left and then I'm going to go to sleep). It was quite a wild and busy Friday. The frantic-ness of Thursday turned into a more calm, but
About a month ago, I was digging through Netflix for something to watch when I saw that they had the original Conan movie. Right then and there, I knew what I was going to be doing for the next couple
Gen Con is fully underway now. The first day went by in a flash. The energy in the air was palpable. Everyone I've talked to agrees that this year is much busier than last. When the doors open, there'
Summer is a time of fun in the sun, beaches, outdoor activities, and wacky adventures.For a short while, then you end up sunburned and realize it's 110 in the shade and are like, "man, I just need to
Everyone likes to personalize their army, but not everyone wants to have to green stuff their own special torsos, helmets, or shoulder pads. That's where Forge World steps in with their upgrade kits.
Day 1 of Gen Con has been an absolute whirlwind. It feels like 3 days have already gone by. But no, it's just one. The show is a great time to sit down with some of the game companies in attendance an
I love getting expansions for board games. I love it because you can have a game that you love, but has maybe stopped stretching your mind, challenge-wise, or perhaps you feel things have gotten a lit
Gaming is certainly a worldwide phenomenon. You can go to any country and find people spending their free time by playing games. Unfortunately, we haven't yet gotten that "one world language" thing do
While Mantic posts their rules for free online, there's no "bells and whistles" to what you get in that free packet. For those that like the extra fluff about the various races and units, there's the
I've mentioned before that I love to see a Kickstarter campaign fund successfully and then eventually make it so the products are available to the general public. Geek Fever Games' Mars vs. Earth card
Gen Con is a place where a lot of companies make a lot of big announcements. Some are things we've heard rumors of before. Others are just sort of out of the blue. This is the second category. Granted
Wow! Gen Con got off to quite a start this morning! Seemed no sooner than I was awake than I was down at the hall looking over some things when Boom! The doors were opened! It was quite a mad rush in
With the drive to Indy yesterday, I obviously didn't have much of a chance to make posts (and no, trying to type in the car all day was not an option. I would've gotten all the carsick). So today I br
Though I am half-German and half-Irish, I've never been one for drinking any kind of alcohol. So if one were to find me in a Biergarten, it'd be of the variety that Steamboat Gothic has currently up o
I love Asian culture. Just the other day I found a whole bunch of Stephen Chow movies on Netflix that I'd never seen. I was in 7th heaven. Out of the Dark is hilarious as hell. I highly recommend it.
You've hopefully seen some of the photos I posted from the Spartan Games display yesterday. If not, go check them out. If you have, what'd you think? Halo has made it to the tabletops with The Fall of
Morgajel goes underground with this release. The Player's Guide for The Ronden Marr is now available for purchase. No matter what system you want to use, you can add this book to your campaign, as it'
Harebrained Schemes has announced their new project that they are going to be bringing to Kickstarter. It's one that certainly I'm interested in. I spent many, many hours playing Mechwarrior 2 when I
The time has come.Gen Con is here... well, ok, it technically starts tomorrow, but there's already a bunch going on at the show. I've been up since way too early this morning in order to ride up here
A new Games Workshop video game is now available on iOS. Warhammer: Arcane Magic lets players be in charge of a a cadre of wizards in the Warhammer universe, as you look to defeat enemy wizards using
Yes! More about Gen Con! It's the greatest 4 days in gaming! Of course there's more to talk about! This time, it's Mantic.Most of Mantic's games are still rather new (in terms of games, anyway) and yo
As if there weren't already enough going on at Gen Con, there's yet more to find out about. Hey, knowing early lets you plan, and going to Gen Con without a plan means you'll end up missing out on qui
Another month, another set of Darklands miniatures from Mierce Miniatures is available. You may not be able to pronounce most of the names (and thank god for copy/paste instead of trying to remember a
Tuesday is here once more. I'm doing some last-minute laundry before packing. I know a few of you are on your way already to Gen Con. Heck, some of you are already there! *is a little jealous* I'm hea
I'll often see Kickstarter campaigns that don't make it to their funding goal the first time through. And you know, a lot of people will say, "that's it. We didn't make it. It's over." But honestly, t
