The work week is coming to an end. I don’t know about you, but this week went by faster than last week, despite last week being a short week. I dunno. Time’s weird like that.

This “it’s a regular week again” continues along. Actually, so far, it doesn’t feel as long as last week felt. Granted, I’ve found Wednesday tends to be the long day out of the bunch, so we’ll see how this one continues along. But if we’re going to make the long slog back to the weekend, we need to have plenty of rations in the form of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Brigade Models Releases New Hammer’s Slammers Models and New Swarm Battle Rulers From Kromlech.

Games Workshop Taking Pre-Orders For Imperial Knights Codex

If you know me, you know I love giant robots. So, while I’ve not played 40k in quite a long time, the addition of even more giant robots to the game certainly has me stopping and going, “hmm…” and then going to check my bank account. Games Workshop has started taking pre-orders for their Imperial Knights codex, as well as new kits, widgets, dice, and more.

We’ve finally made it to Friday! I don’t know about you, but this was a really long week for me. Partially because I’ve been anxious to get back to playing D&D. Our second session will be tomorrow, and I can’t wait. Later today, I’m going to pick up snacks and whatnot for the game. But I also need to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories. And that’s just what we’ve got for you here.

Wow, Wednesday already? This week’s just rolling by. Not that I mind that, of course. I’ve got some D&D coming up this weekend, so you know that I’m stoked. So, here’s to hoping that the rest of the week jogs by quickly, too. But if we’re gonna be jogging, we’re gonna be burning up energy. If we’re gonna be burning up energy, we need to replace it. If we’re gonna replace it, we should nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Under the sea (under the sea) there’s a whole race of elves (sorry, aelves) that have been hiding out from the ocean, sticking clean clear of Slaanesh and only doing some light raiding.

Wednesday already. Granted, for me, it’s usually the day of the week that takes the longest. Not that there’s anything particular terrible that happens on Wednesdays. It’s just the day that seems to go on the longest. Gotta make it up and over that hill and then we can slide back down toward the weekend. “Step by step, you climb the mountain,” such as it were. But when climbing mountains, you need to bring along provisions. In this case, it’s bite-sized gaming stories.

Hey everybody! It’s Friday! Woooooo! Gateway to the weekend, you all know how much I love Fridays. Or, more importantly, Friday evenings (not that work’s terrible, but c’mon! It’s not the weekend!). This evening, I’ll be making some white chocolate & macadamia nut cookies for D&D tomorrow. Probably will grab some snacks to take along as well. But, before I get to those bite-sized treats, let’s dig into some bite-sized gaming stories.

The first half of the week is over. That means it’s more than halfway to the weekend. I’m still jazzed about the new D&D game that’s starting up. I’ve got my backstory. I’ve got my character sheets. I’ve even got a pair of playlists for my character (well, he is a bard, after all). I hope you’ve got some cool gaming stuff lined up for this weekend as well. And no game is complete without snacks, so let’s snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

We’ve made it to Friday! Woo! Congratulations, everyone. Good job. Just a bit more and we’ll make it to the weekend. My plans look like they’re going to include trying to paint up my Hunter’s Guild and making Jammie Dodgers. We’ll see how all that goes. But before I get to all that, I need to fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories. And, starting out, Kraken Dice certainly has been busy this morning…

Quite a blustery day here in Atlanta for the middle of the week. Despite being the first day of spring, it seems as though winter is looking to hang on for a little longer. So, even though there’s more light than there is dark now (at least, here in the Northern Hemisphere), we should still stock up on bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Okumarts Games Releases Four Sets of Super-villain Paper Miniatures, Gravetides Fantasy Fleet Coming to Kickstarter, Afro-Zombie Launching Steam Girls 75mm Minis Kickstarter Soon, Stars Reach 2 Kickstarter Running Now, Dark Art Studios Running Devil’s Dungeon II Kickstarter, Elder Dice: Unspeakable Tomes Up On Kickstarter, and Really Useful Box Storage For Sails of Glory Ships Released.

Man, this week really did go by fast, at least for me. That’s certainly not a complaint, mind you. I’m always happy for the weekend. And, my dice came in. Though I’m not 100% sure what I’ve got on the schedule. I might go out and play some board games. I might stay in and do some more painting. I’m just not sure. But whatever I do, I know I’ve gotta have some bite-sized gaming stories to snack on beforehand.

Today on the platter we have: Faun Kickstarter Preparing to Start Again, Final Days For Dark Hold: Terror from the Black Isles RPG Kickstarter, and New Dice Sets Available From Kraken Dice.

TGN Review: Kraken Dice Iconic Blue Set

I don’t collect a lot of things. My board game collection is actually rather small. I only play 2 minis games, and the amount of each is relatively tiny. But when it comes to dice? … Well, I have a saying, “No such thing as too many dice.” I love these little jewels. I’ve got all types and am always looking out for new places to get them. In the past couple months, I’ve come across Kraken Dice. In that short time, they’ve quickly become my favorite dice company. My most recent purchase just showed up, and so I figured I’d tell you about them and about why I love this company so much.

So grab your Crown Royal bag, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s the Iconic Blue dice set from Kraken Dice.

Gateway to the weekend. AND! I placed an order for some new dice yesterday. So you know I’m stoked. When dice sets sell out in a matter of minutes, and you manage to get some, it’s a pretty good feeling. Still riding high on that wave today.

Hello, Friday, my old friend.
As usual, Friday’s one of my favorite days of the week, busy as it often is. But busy’s good. It’ll make the day go by quick and I can get to the weekend that much faster. Not 100% sure what I’ll get into this weekend. I think I want to make a cheesecake, though. Got a new recipe. We’ll see how it goes. But there’s also a heavy chance for gaming, and if I’m going to be gaming, I should probably fill up on gaming-related stories.
