|I bought my wife a birthday present last year (which arrived in early March). Sadly, with the whole looking for a house, packing, moving, cleaning the first house, selling, working, and general chaos, th...|

Last night was my birthday. Having not had a housewarming or anything, we threw a small party, ate cupcakes and showed off the house.
And blew up spaceships. That's totally a thing with me. We even...

I love this game.
It is practically the essence of pure unadulterated beat em up, wrapped in a odd wargamey look, but with funky dice, the best new combat system in years, and some nifty event card...

|So there is this BGGcon thing. I went, and here are some comments. The Con: Amazing. 1200 people and it all runs like clockwork. There aren't problems. Much of this is that it is mostly a large open ga...|

This time, I've uploaded the pics without the resize option. Makes bigger pics. This also lets you see the worst bit of painting I've done so far. Check out the sails on the Heldenhammer. A...|

As far as painting, I'm on my last two ships, and then have a bunch of small pieces--monsters and land and things to finish up.
But Avery and I did manage to get a game in. And I adore it. Lots of ...

Not much to say, except the closeups do show up the deficiencies in my eyesight and painting skills.
They still look great at anything beyond 4-6 inches.

Our house is lit in old school dim with Sandi's sewing room having enough light for decent pics. It should be a couple of days.
5 ships are painted, with a focus on easy and paint-befo...

In the interest of blogging, I'll probably keep an occasional log of just how much freakign time is going into this whole dreadfleet thing. I got about an evening and a half in so far, and have so little...

|So...this game came out called Gears of War. You've heard of it of course. You've probably even heard of the very dark grey and brown third-person cover-based shooter which pretty much defined the moder...|

Got two new games in at Launius last night:
Sentinels of the Multiverse is kind of a bargain: close to 500 cards in a little tiny box for $40. The game is kind of like my first co-op comic CCG. Without t...

In spite of taking a bag of games, two of the new games I played arrived by Solow.
I finally played King of Tokyo which is several shades of awesome in a really expensive box. It really fits inside...

In my never-ending quest to find decent unknown games, I came across a geeklist:
It had Flash Point on it, so I've been slowly mining ...

I did 3 days of the epic 5-day Atlanta Gamefest this weekend. I think I got through a pretty large pile of new games, with only one unplayed.
Karnaxis: This was the hit of the weekend, and my copy ...

Strictly speaking, I cannot truly review Stronghold Games' new Confusion. I've never actually played their edition of the game. I have spent some time with a production copy of their version and have a c...

I finally made it back, have a laptop and can type. There isn't a LOT to add, but a ton of game impressions, and a couple of days spent on the Canadian cheesy side of Niagara Falls.
Mondo: Pegasus ...

As before, this will be a little terse. The iPad is not great for extended typing and I was packing light.

It is the week before Easter meaning that conference rooms are cheap and Alan Moon does the whole Gathering of Friends thing. That means 8 days with a ton of Nuremburg releases. And some longer and crazi...
