Midweek Snippets

I just went, "Ok, time to make the 2pm post. Oh... hey, it's Wednesday already." Always nice when the week seems to be just skipping on by. Anyway, to keep up that energy, let's nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories. Today on the platter we have:

Ukrainian Fundraiser Mini Available from Victoria Miniatures

Like people all over the World, I have been distressed and heartbroken by the terrible events unfolding in Ukraine and the suffering playing out daily on our screens. I am seeking to raise funds for the UNICEF Ukraine Emergency Appeal.

Many of you will remember the Victoria Miniatures Australian Bushfire fundraiser from 1999, which I set up in response to the horrors unfolding on my doorstep. The incredible efforts made by Vic Minis supporters all over the World, resulted in $30,000 AUD being donated to the Australia RSPCA, to help wildlife, pets and livestock impacted by the fires.

I am calling again on this wonderful Hobby community. I am offering an Exclusive Miniature ‘Kateryna and Sergiy’, Sculpted by Patrick Keith. They are available as a .STL download, and as a fine resin kit, cast by our friends at Trenchworx. I would be thrilled if you could participate in any way you can. This may be by purchasing the Miniature, making your own charity donation, or simply by helping spread the word. Lets do this!

Sharp Edge VHS Dice Up On Kickstarter

For years we had been thinking about this project. How to do it. When to do it. Then the pandemic hit and we thought it might never happen. As we ran back to our basements to hide from the plague we questioned our existence. Did we make the right choices? Will the world ever learn of our brilliance? Has our dice empire crumbled to the ground before the first brick had ever been laid?

It's been nearly 2 years since that fateful day and we can tell you this much. We have NO CLUE, so we're just going to wing it and hope for the best!
