Ah, Saturday. What cannot be accomplished on a day such as this?
... except maybe typing correctly, since the first time through writing that I had 3 typos. *double-checks that they're all fixed* ... Ok, I think I got 'em.
I'm big on tradition, and the tradition for Saturday is to post a Review Roundup. So let's get to it.

Today we have: Destroy BCN, Waggle Dance, Amasser Dragons, Cthulhu Realms iOS, Builders of Blankenburg, Imps Devilish Duels, Crisis, Ra, Piratoons, Star Wars: Empire Vs Rebellion, The Chicago Way, GemPacked, Animals On Board, Cry Havoc, Potion Explosion, and Klask.

The rain here in Atlanta seems to be bringing a lot of people down. Personally, I love me some "Guns 'N' Roses weather" (congratulations if you get the reference), and as you saw in a previous update today, I've got classic rock playing today in my headphones. And don't let anyone tell you that heavy metal and classic rock can't be nerdy. "Ramble On" anyone?

Anyway, let's get on with our usual Monday feature of a Terrain Corner, where we do our best to make your gaming table look fantastic.

Today's articles include: Manorhouse Workshop Update #6 – 3D Bases – Modular Terrain: Skirmish & Wargame, Acheson Creations Releases the next in its Twentieth Century Alpine Trench Series – the Concrete Troop/Supply Shelter, New From Heroic Maps - The Tar Pits, Renaissance Miniatures Launches Steampunk/Victorian Terrain Kickstarter, Tabletop World Town Gate Sneak Peek, and Deep-Cut Studio releases new City Block gaming mat.

War Mage Games will be headed to Crisis and they're willing to bring your order along with them to save you shipping charges.
