Origins And Inspirations

I was flipping through some links earlier this week and something caught my eye.  I saw that Ferti and the US distributor, Eagle-Gryphon Games are making a new expansion to their dexterity game, Pitchcar. Curiously, they are going through kickstarter to fund it, which looks like a first for Ferti.  Pitchcar expansions are all well and good but I was particularly struck by a particular add-on.

Back For A Song

Well. After 3+ months, CMON was finally able to ship out the other half of my Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game pledge.  I hadn’t realized until I saw the shipping notification what effect that botched delivery had on my desire to play the game. Nevertheless, it has arrived.

Thoughts On A Game Of A Game Of Thrones

So after our first game of A Song of Ice & Fire Miniatures Game, I’ve had some time to collect my thoughts.  As a quick recap, we played a 30 point “small” game using only the starter set. The army lists were netdecked from the Kickstarter updates that featured some initial build lists.

Unexpected Arrivals

Move over Walking Dead, without warning, this arrived the yesterday:

I knew it was en route generally speaking but didn’t get a tracking number or anything for this new CMON monstrosity.  The game was highly anticipated and is none other than the new A Song of Ice & Fire Tabletop Miniatures Game. That is a pretty big mouthful so I’ll shorten it to ASOIF for short.

CabinCon 2018 Recap Part 1

Our annual gaming retreat happened last weekend and it marks the sixth year we’ve gotten together.  This year we had five in attendance: Jeremy, Sterling, Colton, Reese, and myself.  Reese, Colton, and I got there a little early so we hit a few games until Sterling arrived and then decided to take a break with a walk around the lake.

This walk proved interesting as it was almost dusk and accidentally ran into the dynamic mommy + baby moosen in a fun little encounter. The shot above was taken on the last day of the trip as the two decided to take a stroll down to the lake.  As you can see, they pretty much own the road and when we met them at night during our first trek, we didn’t realize this fact.

Catacombs Conquest

A new Kickstarter shipment arrived late last week and I was able to get it to the table and see it in action.  I’m a huge fan of the dexterity game, Catacombs and when Elzra Games announced they were making a lighter/simpler version, called Catacombs Conquest, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to get my kids involved.

I didn’t shoot a comparison shot but the game box is pleasantly small making it quite portable.

HATE Speech

HATE, the Kickstarter-Exclusive, over-the-top, gratuitous, violence-fest of a board game just had its pledge manager open and after looking at all the crap in that kickstarter, I think I’m in agreement with the critics…

Gotham City Reconstruction Efforts

Over the summer, I had made up some street lights for the Batman Miniature Game.  I thought they turned out well but after playing with they, they weren’t quite right: they weren’t very bright, the connections were fiddly and only four of the six original ones work properly now.  So I was looking for a replacement and thought I found a good idea using a set of small lights and new posts to hang them on.

As described in my previous post, the new lamp posts were too small so I was going to have to mess around.

Lost Projects and Revisions

The weather last week was pretty great and seeing that the forecast would turn a bit colder, I used the opportunity to get the rest of my Walking Dead: All Out War minis primed.  Hopefully I can get into a routine again during the long winter nights and finish up the bulk of them.
