In the middle of last year, I was pretty excited about Infinity TAGs (the large mechs of the Infinity Universe). I went so far as to put them all up in a running catalog post (which I recently updated with some of the missing pics). Flash forward to earlier today and Corvus Belli announced a teaser for their next board game venture:

I dusted off an older game from my shelf as my group was looking for games to play this past weekend. While we ultimately tried something else, bringing out Fire & Axe again reminded me that there was something I wanted to pimp out in this game.
The painting desk has been a little dry recently as I try to recharge my batteries. But I must press on as I have our annual CabinCon coming up and while I might not be doing as much prep as I usually do, it is an excuse to pull out something different to work on, namely the Adrenaline board game.
A favorite game of mine recently had a revitalizing Kickstarter to enter the digital range. I’m not sure how well a digital port of the game will do but the Blood Rage Digital campaign also offered some physical extras as well. Even though no rewards have been delivered yet, I started thinking about this game again and decided to shoot some new images.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
