Monday Terrain Corner

Someone decided it needed to be Monday again. While I'm not all that thrilled with the decision, I do know that it's going to be a short week. So that's gonna be good. Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the US, and so I'll be off Thursday and Friday, just chillin' and trying to avoid all the fracas at the Maul. In the meantime, though, let's get your gaming tables lookin' as good as my dining room table will be this Thursday.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Frosty Plain Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, TerrainCrate Town & Battlefield available to order now, and Hive City Habitat Available From Tabletop Scenics.

Tuesday...

It's... there. I mean, it's hard to hate it, as it's not really the start of the week. All of that loathing goes to Monday. But there's not much else going on with it. It's not the middle of the week, really. It's just... Tuesday. I know Arthur could never really get a handle on Thursdays, but I think Tuesdays are the ones I have the toughest time with. Better listen to some gaming podcasts.

Today on the dial we have: Game Classy Episode 173: We're Back; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 49 - Essen 2018 preview; Drive Thru FM Episode 20: Top 10 Anticipated Essen 2018 Games; Mantic Radio Episode 14; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 133: The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31; The Secret Cabal Episode 169: Eschaton, Folklore the Affliction and a Short Topic Extravaganza; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 156: Igancy, Monolith Arena, Imperial Settlers Amazons; Singled Out Episode 76: Talking Season 4 Union with Jason Mountain; Geeks of the North Episode 50: Hobby rooms; and Guilds of the North Episode 12: Welcome to Season 4.

Mantic Games Announces Here's Negan Board Game

In The Walking Dead, the zombies are often not the scariest or most dangerous things around. The still-living are often much more evil. Such is the case with Negan. In the new game Here's Negan, coming from Mantic Games, players take on the role of Negan's lieutenants in the early days of his reign. They must clear out the Sanctuary, making it safe... err... well, "safe" for those that want to stay there.
