29 March 2018 - 2:00pm
I have to admit, this one had me at, “Hello.” I mean, it’s a setting book called Dinosaur Protocol. I instantly wanted to know more. And what I learned is that some sort of disaster had caused humanity to flee the surface of the Earth. Nobody’s 100% sure what it was, as that was hundreds […]

Tanks. “You’re welcome.” No, Tanks! “Ok, you’re not welcome!” No, I mean that Armoured Digital, a new sci-fi skirmish game, is full of tanks and other armored vehicles (or, I suppose, armoured vehicles) that you “program” using your activation cards, deciding where and when your figures will turn, fire, and move.

Thursday Terrain Corner

29 March 2018 - 11:00am
It must be a Thursday. I never could get a handle on Thursdays. Honestly, last night at several points, I thought, “Well, tomorrow’s Friday.” Oh was I not happy when I would remember, “wait… no… it’s only Thursday.” Kinda feel sorry for the day. It’s like, “hey there, day-that’s-not-quite-Friday. Thanks for seemingly just extending out […]

Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell Now Available

29 March 2018 - 7:00am
Cell is supposedly the perfect fighting machine. The Dragon Ball crew, on the other hand, disagree, and they’ve come to the Cell Games to prove it (and to keep Cell from blowing up the Earth, too. There is that part to consider). In Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell, players will take on the role of […]

The Union in Chains event for Guild Ball saw the Union players spread out among the other Guilds. In the case of Decimate, she’s ended up with the Brewer’s Guild. Her knowledge with the sword is no longer employed with a foil or rapier, but a broadsword. So, what sort of changes does that mean […]

Judgement Wave 2 Up On Kickstarter

28 March 2018 - 6:00am
Long-time readers will know my love for big models. Sure, those 28-32mm minis are fine, but I really like larger figures. I like big minis and I cannot lie.
