Frank Herbert's tale of interstellar politics, strange weapons, and even stranger creatures has been seen in movies, books, toys, and even cooking shows (go watch the Punch episode of Good Eats). But soon, Gale Force 9 will be bringing entirely new versions of the series to you in the form of new tabletop games, including both miniatures and board games.

Photos From Gen Con Day 3

Gen Con this year has been everything I was expecting it to be. Mostly: filled with awesome stuff to see and filled with lots of people! Saturday has always been the busiest day, and yesterday was no exception. And while there was a mildly-noticeable larger crowd, we weren't all packed in like sardines, for the most part. You could still get around to see all the great booths here at the show. Though taking pictures was sometimes difficult. But take them I did. And here they are for you to see.

Gale Force Nine Posts Gen Con Plans

As we get closer to the show, we get more companies posting up what sort of awesome goodies they'll have at the show. In this case, it's Gale Force Nine. They're certainly not going to the show empty-handed. They're bringing new items for pretty much every one of their lines. You'll be able to check them out at the GF9 booth before they're released later this year.

Gale Force Nine Looking For Help at Summer Conventions

I have never been to a convention where I wasn't working for some gaming company. Back in the day, it was Privateer Press, doing things like running Tour of Duty for 40 hours, or Iron Arena (where, among other shifts, I once did a 24 hour shift). Then, of course, once I took over this gig, I was doing TGN coverage at shows. I honestly wouldn't know what to do at a convention if I wasn't working it. It's, honestly, pretty awesome. If you want to see what it's like to work a show, Gale Force Nine is looking for people to help out at Origins and Gen Con.

Well, it seemingly took an eternity, but it is now Saturday.
And, as I expected, from the time I clocked out until even now seems to have gone by very quickly. So, by the time I finish this, I guess it'll be time for Monday's Terrain corner...

But that's as may be.

4th Doctor Previewed For Time of the Daleks

Tom Baker was my favorite Doctor. That's just how it is. When I was first introduced to Doctor Who, it was via the physics club at Truman State. I know. "How nerdy can you get?" A bunch of physics students sitting around watching Doctor Who. But it was good times. Of course, the 4th iteration of the Doctor will be part of Time of the Daleks. In exactly what form you can get a look at in this preview.

Gale Force Nine Previews Helping and Regeneration For Time of the Daleks

Sometimes, you need to get some help from someone else. But, if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself. Thankfully for the Doctor, he can do both at the same time. In Time of the Daleks, some tasks are just too daunting to do on your own. Thankfully, there's other Doctors who can jump in and help. And if everything should go pear-shaped, you can always just regenerate as the next incarnation of yourself.
