Before I jumped into my Paint Challenge, I was talking about solo X-wing and the experiences I was having. I did have a report in the works and I figured I should get it out before the details turn to mush.

With my new Death Star board finished up, I decided to put it through its paces. The biggest question is “how” in this new age of social distance gaming. Until some tech improves, Solo is my only option (since I’m wanting to play physically and not use one of the online ports).
Luckily, Fantasy Flight has provided just such a solution: enter the Solo Play Open Alpha ruleset.
With January gone, I thought it was high time I jumped back in. A hard drive meltdown took the wind out of my sails for a bit with the loss of several things I was working on but I’m back now and will soldier on.
I’ve been up to a few things during the downtime and I’ll be showing them off as I get them finalized.
One of the bigger items is jumping back into X-wing.

Day 3 of CabinCon 2018 started with a nice game of Patchwork. I say nice as this was my first play and it is a game with some interesting mechanics. I got thoroughly trounced by Jeremy but would like to try it again to see if I can figure out more of what makes the game tick.
Tomorrow starts our annual CabinCon trip filled with games, games, and more games up in the confines of a nice secluded cabin. It’s a great chance to meet up with old friends and hit games that we usually don’t have time for or pulling out old favorites.
Every year, I try to throw out something unique and memorable and so this year I’m trying out a “Hunger Games” variant for Imperial Assault’s skirmish rules. I like the theme of a bunch of Bounty Hunters getting thrown together to fight it out Battle Royale style so I picked up all the Bounty Hunters I could find and decided to go the extra mile and try to get them painted before the Con. We’ll see if I can wrap them up in time.
The news has been making the rounds across the websites but I thought I’d weigh in briefly on Ares Games’ announcement that they are developing a starship battle game set in the Battlestar Galactica universe. The game “scale” looks to be a dogfight scale game with players controlling a number of individual fighter scale ships.
