Friday. And not just any Friday, but the Friday before Gen Con week. That means there's only about 85k things to do (per minute). Well, while I type up "All The Words" for everything, I'm also going to stop and snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Acheson Creations Releases 28mm Gigantosaurus, Llama Queen On War Llama Now Available From Barbaric Splendor Miniatures, Rebel Minis Releases Dark Hold Knight Goblin Cavalry Pack, and Puppets War Releases Orc Weapon Tips.
It's already Wednesday. I don't know about you, but my week has been screaming by. I guess being super busy will do that to you. I know the temperature here in GA is supposed to bottom out today. Seems that Winter has finally decided to start up. I guess better late than never. Best to grab a cup of hot cocoa and a couple bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: New Releases Available From Kraken Dice, Deco Dice Up On Kickstarter, and Rebel Minis Dark Hold Kobold Horde Pack & Kobold Scouts.
In a way, it's Wednesday, because that's what day it is. In a way, it's Friday, because it's the last day of the work week. In some ways, it's both, because we have a Snippets post here for you. So, before you chow down on all the food tomorrow, let's get you some bite-sized gaming stories to snack on.
Today on the platter we have: Game Cows Discusses Different Types of Board Games, ARMYTRANSPORT Black Friday Sale Happening Now, The Avatar of Cthulhu Up On Kickstarter, Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Scale Cyberdogs, and New Monster Hunter Mini Available From Brother Vinni.
Just in time for the holidays, Rebel Minis and Two Hour Wargames has not just one, but two new sci-fi miniatures games for you. They're 5150 Platoon Leader and 5150 Battalion Commander. You can go pick up your copies now and spend your off-hours these next months getting your mini sci-fi battle groove on.
Halfway there, ladies and gentlemen. We're halfway there. We can make it back to the glory of the weekend. But to get there, we'll need the energy from some bite-sized gaming stories.

Rebel Minis is pleased to announce that they've released Qwik: A Game of the Wastelands. It's a new fantasy sports game set in a post-apocalyptic world. Hey, when not running away from nuclear mutants, you still wanna just play around some, right? Grab the dog skull and get in there!
Spring Cleaning is a thing, including for gaming companies. They want to help clear out space in their warehouses so they can fill them up with all the awesome, new things they've got coming for the year. Rebel Minis does this with their annual Spring Sale, going on now.
Missions of Tomorrow is the new expansion book for the Future Tales game. As one would expect, it brings in even more sci-fi themes for when you're playing and making your character. Like what? Well, how about some new attributes? Or maybe you'd like some cyborg action? Want to make your games less pulpy and more gritty? There's rules for that, too. You can pick up your copy from Rebel Minis now.
Fridaaaaaaaaaay! Man, this week really did go by fast, at least for me. That's certainly not a complaint, mind you. I'm always happy for the weekend. And, my dice came in. Though I'm not 100% sure what I've got on the schedule. I might go out and play some board games. I might stay in and do some more painting. I'm just not sure. But whatever I do, I know I've gotta have some bite-sized gaming stories to snack on beforehand.
Today on the platter we have: Faun Kickstarter Preparing to Start Again, Final Days For Dark Hold: Terror from the Black Isles RPG Kickstarter, and New Dice Sets Available From Kraken Dice.
Rebel Minis is running a Kickstarter campaign for the third book in their Dark Hold Goblin Adventure Series using the Savage Worlds game system. Plus, there's a bunch of duckmen minis that are part of the campaign. I mean, c'mon, how many duckman minis are out there? The world certainly could use some more!
I did soooo much baking over the weekend. *someone from the audience shouts out "How much baking did you do!?"* I did so much that there's still some of various treats left, even though there's been a steady stream of coworkers out to the tables where they reside. Though we're getting down to the last bits. I think it's just a bit of fruitcake and the candy cane cookies left. So, in lieu of trying to send those through the screen so you can try them, how about I just give you some tasty, bite-sized gaming stories, instead? Sounds like a plan.
Today on the platter we have: New Annihilation Beamer Available From Kromlech, The Goblin Sorcerer Paper Model Up On Kickstarter, Rebel Minis Christmas Sale Happening Now, and Mother of Dragons Resin Kit Up On Kickstarter.
It's already Wednesday. Is the week going by quickly for everyone else, too? It feels like it is for me, anyway. But being busy will do that, I suppose. If I'm going to keep up this pace, I should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: Scrap Steel Base Deals Available From Tabletop-Art, Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Minotaur Warlord, Fog Monster Mini Fog Machine Up On Kickstarter, Saint Brendan of Clonfert Mini Available From Brother Vinni, and Through Gamer Goggles Posts Gen Con 2017 Interviews.
The week continues along. We'll get back to that ever-loving weekend soon. Just another couple of days and it'll be time once more. And I'm sure a lot of people in the US are going to be celebrating this weekend. With the 4th of July being a Tuesday this year, I'm guessing a lot of people are going to take this weekend to grill, shoot off some fireworks, and just celebrate America. I know I'm getting together with some friends on Saturday for just that sort of thing. I'm sure there'll be tasty snacks there. Let's snack on some tasty bite-sized gaming stories now, too.

Usually, goblins are those things the DM throws at us when we're level 1-3 in order to get the PCs some extra XP for when the "real" adventure starts up. But in Dark Hold, the goblins are the PCs. And Rebel Minis has released a new adventure for their game series. It's Lair of the Cerebeast, and as one would expect, there's a lair full of monsters to go investigate.
The week continues along. It's a shortened week for many of us, but it's still a week. We'll make it to next weekend, eventually, though. No worries. But if we want to get there, we should re-energize with some bite-size gaming stories.

Nature's ruthless. You go out there and it's survival of the fittest. Those fuzzy, cute animals will straight-up murder you if they need to. And when armed with axes, swords, and crossbows, they get even more ruthless. And that's just what's going on in Hedgerows & Heroes, a new miniatures game of woodland warfare from Rebel Minis. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
Spring is traditionally seen as a time to start something new. Everyone's getting back out of their hibernation and out into the world, and getting started with a new project for the year is a good way to get involved with things. The folks over at Rebel Minis think it's a perfect time to get you started on some of their games or model kits, and so they're once again having their storewide sale.
Well, it's finally Friday. Seems like it's taken forever. Also, who wants to take bets on me clocking out this evening and then suddenly feeling like I'm clocking in on Monday morning? You know weekends never work like the work week. It's going to just go by in a flash, I'm sure. Well, so I have enough energy to get through the rest of the day and then to zip through the weekend, I should load up on bite-sized gaming stories.

Friiiiiiiidaaaaaaay! Woo! We've made it, everyone! At least for me, it was a nice, calm, "standard" week. As a creature of habit, I'm very grateful for that. Many of us here in the US are also getting a 3-day weekend, what with Martin Luther King Jr. Day being this upcoming Monday. So that's cool. I hope you have some cool weekend activities planned and that today being Friday the 13th doesn't mean anything bad for you. But as we go into the weekend, we should stock up on bite-sized gaming stories.

At once, it feels both like, "wow. Already Wednesday?" and "wow. How is it only Wednesday?" Is it that way for anyone else or just me? I feel like I've gotten a lot done, but have a lot more waiting ahead of me. Ah well. We'll make it. Break on through to the other side. To help with that, here's a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories.

Personally, I don't celebrate my birthday. Just not really something I'm interested in doing. However, I'll help others celebrate the hell out of their birthday. Any reason to bake up some cookies, brownies, or a cheesecake and I'm there. Well, you won't be getting any cookies from Rebel Minis, but you will be getting some great deals during their birthday sale that's going on now.
The work week continues along. It's already half-over, in fact. Hopefully yours is going well. Mine's not been great, but I'm making it through. Got board game day at the library coming up this weekend again. Should be a good time. But in the meantime, let's bulk up on some bite-size gaming stories.

Seems just about everything is going on this weekend. PAX, Nova Open, and Dragon*Con are all happening... well, right now, actually. If you're at one of the shows, awesome. I hope you're having a blast. If you're not, well, at least we still have Friday going for us, which is nice. Either way, we should fuel up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Goblins. Most gamers are used to coming across packs of them as an initial adventure starting out a campaign. By about level 3, they're probably not much of a threat anymore (except for those unscrupulous GMs that like to level-advance a whole tribe of them to throw at unsuspecting adventurers). The Dark Hold wants to put goblins front and center where they belong. Rebel Minis is running the Kickstarter campaign that's going on right now.
