Gaslands most popular game scenario is the “Deathrace” scenario featured prominently in the rulebook. The main feature of the scenario is a last-man-standing race around a course, passing through various gates to get through the finish. The Gaslands community has come up with a lot of different options for these gates but since I’m using a less popular scale at 10mm, I decided to check out some of the Dropzone Commander terrain out there and found a great set put out by 4Ground.

Right before Christmas, my friend came over jonesing for some gaming before the break. After an interesting game of Photosynthesis with the missus, she adjourned and we had a few game options to hit as the night was still young.
We settled on trying out a new-to-us minis game: Test of Honour. Test of Honour is a feudal Japan skirmish game centering around your Samurai Hero and his commoner followers. Produced by Warlord Games, it is an inexpensive minis game (relatively speaking) as it has a pretty significant group of forces in the $50 core set.
I got a nice surprise in the mail the other day, an advanced copy of the next Catacombs expansion, Wyverns of Wylemuir. I helped Elzra Games proofread the manual and components and as a fantastic thank you gesture, they sent me my copy early. This is a full expansion similar to Cavern of Soloth so you need the base game to play it. I believe there are a couple of other copies floating around as it was available to purchase at Dice Tower Con.
I saw a user on Boardgamegeek talk about only going with the Prelude to Woodbury expansion to start his collection in The Walking Dead: All Out War and never picking up the Core Set. I think this is perfectly doable but like in most things, there will be tradeoffs and balances to this approach.
I decided to research more into this and find out exactly what you’ll be missing if you go this route and what do you gain.
So I’ve talked a bit about my CabinCon prep for the Walking Dead minis game (All Out War) by Mantic Games but I got the chance to put the whole thing together and play two epic sessions. The first session is below.
disclaimer: The Walking Dead: All Out War game has not been released as of this post. All miniatures, scenery, and components are either mocked up or proxies from other games.
As has been tradition since the first CabinCon, a group of friends head down to the local restaurant Pancho and Lefty’s for a chance to get out of the cabin and stretch their legs.
One of the recent trends in game pimping is custom metal coins. Long a staple of LARPing (Live-Action Role Playing), allowing players to help immerse themselves more fully into their game world, custom metal coins have been pushing into the board game arena both as separate game accessories and standard components offered by the publisher themselves.
Recently, I received my Kickstarter pledge for Fantasy Coins, LLC second run of gaming coins and picked up some great custom coins for a couple of games in my collection.
