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.

Today on the platter we have: Kromlech Weekend Deal on Dice, Iconic Blue Dice Set Coming This Evening From Kraken Dice, Statuesque Heroic Scale Female Heads – Techno Roiders on sale now at 10% off, Norse Foundry Teams with Elderwood Academy to Launch Mini Metal Dice and Mini Hex Chest on Kickstarter, Brigade Models Releases New 15mm Neo-Soviet Heavy Tank, Ouroboros Miniatures Running CP_New Skin Bust Kickstarter, and Limited Edition Valentine’s Orc Available From Punga Miniatures.

The week continues to chug along. We’ve made it halfway there. Just another couple leaps and we’ll be back to the weekend. I’m excited to hopefully get back to the Tails of Equestria game we’ve been playing here at the office. It’s been since before the holidays that we managed to have our last session. So it’ll be good to get back into the swing of things. But if I’m going to be at the office late, I should probably grab a snack of some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: The D20 Collective Running Metal Gaming Coins Kickstarter, Brigade Models Release More British Aeronef, New Mercenaries Miniatures Available From Brother Vinni, and Kraken Dice Iconic Blue Giveaway.

Hello, Friday, my old friend.
This has been the first full-week of the year, methinks. Like, ok, I know that we’re already into February, but I think this might be the only week where I’ve been up and into the office each day.

Still working on getting better from this cold. It always seems to take me longer to get back to 100% than it does days that I’m actually feeling sick. It’s like, “Ok, these are the days I’m definitely sick” and then a week of, “I’m hoping this is the last day of this garbage.”
I’m starting to get my appetite back, though. So I’m going to chow down on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today in the platter we have: Treasure Towers Dice Towers Up On Kickstarter, Now available – New Ancestral Ruins bases From Tabletop-Art, Necronomicon Dice Up On Kickstarter, and New Nurgle Trays from Battle Foam: Great Unclean One.

The weekend is almost upon us! I’m already getting my gaming on today. I’ll be playing some of the Munchkin CCG, as well as perhaps some of the Fallout board game. That’s before I go over to a friend’s place tomorrow to deliver some late Christmas presents (ok, really late)… they’re games. So hopefully we’ll play them some. But if I’m going to be doing all this gaming, I should be well-fed. Good thing I’ve got some gaming stories to nosh on. Including cotton candy dice. Yes, I ordered these dice this morning. #NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice

Halfway there.
We’re halfway to getting back to the weekend. Methinks I’m going to take it easy this weekend. I found out my LGS is going to be absolutely packed with several events running for games I don’t really play, so I’ll probably just veg at my place. I could use a relaxing couple of days, anyway. Though it does mean I still need to wait to break in my custom Guild Ball mat (more on that tomorrow. Stay tuned). In the meantime, I’m feeling a bit peckish, so how about noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories?

Photos from Day 4 of Gen Con

Well, Gen Con wrapped up yesterday. Today’s a travel day for me. Then we’ll get you back to a closer-to-regular posting schedule tomorrow and going into the rest of the week. It’s impossible to thank all the people who made this show so awesome. There’s just too many to list (and my brain is still far, far too tired, even after some sleep). But it was an amazing show. Every year, I wonder if “The Greatest 4 Days in Gaming” is going to be false advertising or not, and every year, it proves itself correct. The show does, truly, deserve that title. Anyway, here’s the last galleries from the show. I hope you like ’em.

Space 1889: Marvels of Mars book and Ubiquity Dice Set Available From Modiphius

Though Mars is dry and dusty now, it is still full of various forms of life. At least, in Space 1889 it is. The jury is still out if there’s any life on it in the real world. But anyway, you can’t really travel there now, but you can in the game, so let’s just focus on that. Modiphius has released two new items for the game. First is the Marvels of Mars book, which contains information and stats about all manner of wondrous creatures inhabiting the world.

Steamforged Games Taking Pre-Orders For Farmer’s Guild Starter and Dice

My dad’s side of the family is from South Dakota. Many of them are farmers. It’s not easy work. Me, as a city boy, would go and visit and spend a week or so helping out around the farm. It was fun, but man, it would definitely kick my ass. It’s easy to see how such a living would pair well with a physical game like Guild Ball. As such, the Farmer’s Guild will be making their way to the pitch this August (the 18th, to be specific). You can get your name on the list to get the starter set, as well as the faction dice.

Is this week going by slowly for everyone else, too, or is it just me? I don’t know if it’s because I’m working from home as the new office continues to be set up, or if it’s just that this week is one that’s taking forever. Maybe it’s that I don’t currently have water in the apartment (the county is coming out today to figure out what’s up with that). Whatever it might be, if I’m going to make it through the rest of the week, I need to power up with some bite-size gaming stories.
