Lately, I’ve gotten back into comics and I jumped all-in on a big crossover event in the DC universe, Dark Nights Metal. It’s a massive, crazy story line that has pushed me into a lot of different comic titles as the events spill across the DC Universe. I haven’t been in a comic book store in twenty years or more so its been interesting coming back into that hobby. I don’t expect to stay in the hobby full time but it’s nice to jump in on occasion.

The good news is every game on my list has been played at least once. Even better news is I’m sitting at 20 games/sessions played out of 36 for the challenge so I’m beating the curve by a good 5%. Let’s look at the details:
Our yearly game gathering, Cabin Con, has come and gone. It was a great time this year and I think we’ve hit our stride as we’ve done this enough times to relax a bit on the planning and still have it work very well. Six of us were there this year and we hit a ton of game over the four and a half days. Below is a quick recap:
Well my friend and I pushed and we were able to get some paint on some models, slap together a “demo” squad of 150 reputation (“points” in this game), and get a learning game done.
As I posted in my 6×6 Game Challenge, one of the games I want to hit as part of the challenge is the Batman Miniature Game. I have the new Suicide Squad box set to get going and it comes with an interesting campaign that I’m hoping to run through. Before all that can start, I have some work to do.
I recently popped over to Sean’s Gaming and Shooting Blog, a fellow Walking Dead: All Out War fan, to check out some of his painting techniques and stumbled across an end of the year post about yearly game challenges. Sean was pulling this from a post he saw at The Stronghold Rebuilt.
