Year 2017


It's the last day of the month. We're 1/4 of the way through the year. The summer heat isn't far away. Time to get your board game collection bulked up and get set for some hot months ahead (or cold o
So, unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it out to Adepticon last weekend like I'd've liked. But that's life. But, when you get lemons, make lemonade. I got in touch with the folks over there and they
Ah, the jousting match. An icon in medieval stories. Two knights, clad in the toughest of armor, armed with massive lances, riding the stoutest of horses go barreling towards each other, looking to kn
Spartan Games is giving you a chance to get something for nothing. This weekend spend £50 in their webshop and get a free rulebook of your choice. Want to start one of their games but were waiting for
We've made it, everyone. It's Friday (be sure to get your free item from Kroger). With any luck, your weekend will be filled with all things gaming. I'm... gonna take it a bit easy. It's pollen season
Ares Games is jumping on the two-player box starter set bandwagon (a good one to be on, if you ask me) with their new Battle of Britain set for Wings of Glory. Take to the skies (figuratively, of cour
You got your fantasy in my horror!You got your horror in my fantasy!Well, you both got your horror and fantasy in my post-apocalyptic!Apocalypse the Risen is a little of this and a little of that. It'
Last weekend, the Crystal Brush Awards were held at Adepticon. I certainly wasn't in danger of winning them. And I'm probably not in danger of winning the new TMNT: Shadows of the Past Hobby Challenge
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is one of my favorite movies (I even don't mind Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, to be honest). One of the concepts from the movie that has permeated into "ever
Those super-soldiers, the space marines, are getting some more releases next week, thanks to Forge World. They've started taking orders for Iron Warriors Siege Terminators as well as Legion Moritats,
Patrol Angis is getting its third book next month (which is only a couple days away. The month... not the book quite yet). The Ion Age wants you to know a bit about what you'll be getting (as well as,
Having big, formidable tanks in your army was a good way to win battles during WWII. Some of the biggest and toughest were Germany's Tigers. They were originally going to be available for the Battle o
Sometimes an old sculpt fora mini doesn't quite cut it anymore. New artists are hired, or older artists' craft gets better. Maybe something about the original made it difficult to mold. Or maybe just
The American Revolution, to say the least, was a pretty big moment in history. Not only did the colonists winning their independence lead to a new country, it kicked off a further set of revolutions.
We still just might make it to the weekend, everyone. Yesterday was certainly a hurdle to get over. Not anything bad (at least on my end of things). Just very busy. Late night at the office working on
The folks over at One Page Rules keep chugging along, coming out with more rules for various armies that you can use in their various miniatures games. This time, they're adding Eternal Wardens and Ha

One of the game that's slowly building momentum as the year goes along is the Big Trouble in Little China board game coming from Everything Epic Games. Occasionally, we'll get a bit of a promo image o
Comics are filled with all sorts of colorful characters. The Porcupine is certainly among them. Looking at the costume, he's giving me a sort of "Ultimate Warrior" vibe, but without the face paint. An
You know, one of the things people say they want out of games is to be "immersed" in it. You know, to feel that you really are your characters and that your actions have real consequences. In the Swor
Having recently gone through moving the offices here, I can certainly understand how it'd cause a delay with products going out. Add to that a bit of resculpting, and you can see why it's been a bit s
Don't you just hate when you miss out on a Kickstarter? All those stretch goals and exclusives, along with the great deal that's to be had. Well, thankfully, the Kickstarter, itself, isn't the only ti
The American Football Season is still quite a ways away. But that doesn't mean you can't be getting some gridiron action going. Or, at least, you'll be able to soon, as Bombshell Games has started tak
Well, it's part preview, part designer's diary. The article, written by game designer Jon Cohn, gives us a look at the philosophy behind the creation of King of the Creepies. That philosophy starts wi
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 ba
