Hello Tuesday. Welcome to the work week proper. I actually had yesterday off, thanks to Veteran's Day. Still got some posts in, but now we've got a whole slate for you. And while at the moment, I'm listening to the GNR weather outside, I will swap over to some gaming podcasts afterward. Which podcasts?

Well, this week on the dial we have: Geeks of the North Episode 88: Game showcase brainstorm; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode: 73 Judge Dredd The Cursed Earth with Marc Langworthy; Tabletop Talk Episode 47: Seamus (Resurrectionist) Deep Dive with Steve Bynum; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 73: Tangura, Chakra & Trismegistus; Singled Out Episode 97: Season 4 Annual Review; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 184: Ankh’or, Stronghold Undead First Look, Warhammer Feast of Bones, Hako Onna, Terra Mystica Expansion, Mega Moose Con; The Secret Cabal Episode 194: Coloma and Game Terms, Buzzwords and The Way We Talk About Games; and The Offline Gamer Episode 43: A Chance and Counter.

Have you ever tried to get someone to figure out a word you're thinking of but you don't actually want to say that word out loud? I'm sure we all have. We gesture. We say clues. We do everything we can to get the friend to realize what we're talking about. Hey Robot is like that, but in a party card game. It's up on Kickstarter now.

"Bees make honey." Apparently, that was my first full sentence I ever said. Ending up as a bear all these years later, the groundwork was laid early. But it's true, bees do make honey, and that's the objective of Honey Buzz (not to be confused with Love Buzz), a new worker bee placement game that's up on Kickstarter now.

There's a lot of iconic characters in the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game from Paizo. They've been running an article series about some of them over on their website. Their latest one is up and it's about Virian Jeggare from the Curse of the Crimson Throne Adventure Path. Have yourself a look.

Most of the Legend of the Five Rings characters come from Rokugan, the land in which the game takes place. That makes sense. But Rokugan is not the only land in the world. Other places exist, and there are many who will travel to Rokugan for many different reasons. In this preview for Path of Waves, the new sourcebook coming for the RPG, we get a look at some of these Gaijin characters.

Just a single change to an army list can drastically affect how it plays. With the Neutral Heroes #2 box, most players in the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game will get a wealth of new options. There's new Attachments, there's new NCUs, there's even new Commander options, all in one box. In this preview, we get a look at some of the figures that will be coming out in the box later this week.

It's Monday. But it's also Veteran's Day. As the son of a veteran, I want to give a heartfelt thanks to all those that serve.

So, when playing with your toy soldiers (whether you're a real soldier or not), you want your game tables to look good. So, let's make sure that's what's happening.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Pipes Terrain Available From TTCombat and Pre-Order Black Seas Scenery Pack.

The Curse of the House of Rookwood is a new gothic horror RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. Players take on the role of a cursed family with various skeletons in their closets (possibly literally). But they are not the only creepy things in this world. Some are out to get them. Will the family be able to work together or will inter-personal rivalries and issues tear them apart? That up to you to decide.

The new year will be here relatively soon. And while my own eyes need glasses to see correctly, Privateer Press is giving us 2020 vision with a look at what will be coming out in February. Have yourselves a look at new Warmachine, Monsterpocalypse, and Riot Quest releases.

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>

Yup, that's right. Giant robots ahead.
