Pimp My Board Game

a pursuit of fruitless endeavors and endless refinements

Batman Miniature Game: Big Boy Brawl

As I mentioned last week, we got in a nice game of Batman Miniature Game last weekend. I decided to go back to my roots a little bit and post in the comic format. This isn’t a narrative comic like I’ve done with Walking Dead but I like how it allows the story come out with the pictures more than the text. We’ll see how well it does but as I refine the process a little more, I should be able to post these a little easier.

Infinity Red Veil: Mission 4

For Infinity’s Operation: Red Veil, mission 4, I had a little bit more work to do as they added the Hsien Warrior. This is a pretty impressive figure with the imposing, Captain Morgan stance.

Infinity Red Veil: Mission 3

I’m behind on my reports as I just finished up Mission 4 from Infinity’s Red Veil set but I was able to upload Mission 3. This time, we add some fun new rules with figures that have camouflage and jump capability. The objective is the same: kill ’em all so we kind of know what to expect.

Photo Session: Forever Aboard

My first favorite board game of the modern era was Alan Moon’s Ticket to Ride. Even years later, it is still one of my favorite game experiences. Something about the cutthroat hidden plots, the territorial skirmishes, and frantic race to the end always make for a thrilling ride. Though the game doesn’t hit the table that often anymore, the 10th Anniversary Edition was a must-buy if, for nothing else, the nostalgia and respect this game deserves.

Hall Of Fame

This week I entered Boardgamegeek’s Photo Hall of Fame. I first entered in January 2018’s contest and though I didn’t do very well at first, I was able to garner enough votes over the next thirteen months to make it in. What I like most about the contests is it has gotten me back into focusing more on photography, something I’ve been missing for some time now. The contests have also been a fun way to see other creative talent taking game photography in new directions. Below are the photos that pushed me through to the end.

Lost And Found

Looking through my desk for errant items, I always open up one drawer in particular. It’s dumb because I know exactly what is in that drawer as it is the same thing that has been in there for year: my defunct Circle of Orboros army from back when I attempted to learn Hordes/Warmachine.

Non-Photo Friday: Infinity Mission 2

I’m not quite done with my photo for the week but I did have a quick Infinity night cap after our second Frostgrave session.

Frostgrave Winter Campaign: Session 2

As I’ve been discussing off and on over the last few weeks, our Frostgrave bands were set to explore a vast underground library. This scenario is actually a slight variation of the core rules “The Library” with a mix of “A Haunted House.” I wanted to get in some fun monsters and the Wraiths served well as ancient librarians trying to keep their sanctuary free from plunder.

Weekend Update

This weekend turned out to be pretty busy as I pulled a double session with Frostgrave in my new library maze and then a quick follow-up game of Infinity.

Photo Friday: Books, Check ’em Out

With my Frostgrave maze walls complete, I was still missing a major component to the library, namely, books. It might be disastrous to start this off in meme but here we go!
