High Command


Review Roundup

In case you hadn't noticed... It's Saturday! Woo!
Considering time differences and all, I hope a lot of you had a good time at Salute today.
Did any of you pick up some awesome stuff while there?
I, obviously, couldn't go (much as I wanted to). I did, however, pick up my limited-edition Flint figure for Guild Ball in their online store.

But that'll get here when it gets here. As for now, it's time for some reviews.

Today we have: Above and Below, Odin's Ravens, Glass Road App, High Command Rapid Engagement, Aradia Miniatures' Toad King, Android: Netrunner Card Game, Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization, Expedition RPG, Kodama, VS 2PCG: The Defenders, And Then We Held Hands, Timeline Challenge, and Tumult Royale.

Welcome back to Saturday, dear friends. Hopefully you're enjoying the day. I've been running around like crazy this morning, getting stuff done before I head to my friend's place this evening for gaming fun. Once I'm done making this post, I need to bake cookies.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

If you're reading this, you've made it to Saturday. You should reward yourself with some gaming with friends. You've earned it!

At the time this posts, I'll be D&Ding it up with my gaming group. We managed to retrieve what is essentially "The Arc of the Bahamut" and are now trying to bring it back to its rightful owners (it'd been stolen by pirates, not the equivalent of Nazis). We were able to get it semi-easily because my Bard was able to get a local indigenous tribe to help us on the island we were on. High Charisma and Diplomacy for the win!

Anyway, we've got a couple reviews/previews for you this week.

In this group we've got: Hyperborea, Warmachine: High Command – Ultimate Weapons Expansion, Paperback, Pyramix, Just Desserts, and The Siblings Trouble.
