There are noticeable differences between a ‘normal sized’ project and a ‘really big’ project. Obviously, the size of the project, but that also affects the time required…an element that I tend to consider less than I should. Focus can be an issue on some projects, especially the larger ones, which require a larger time commitment. Fending off the mid-project doldrums is the name of the game this time…let’s see if I can get some much needed hobby bonus energy out of messing about.Continue reading
Ever since Dominion came out in 2008 there have been an ever-growing number of games using the deck-building mechanism, or sometimes a variant such as bag-building. I enjoy the mechanism, but games utilising it have been hit or miss. Here’s my top 10 list of games using deck or bag building. Will Dominion make the top 10??
I’m sure it’s happened to many of you: You’re at a board game event and there are 7+ of you trying to decide what to play, but you want to stay as a group rather than splitting off. It can be hard to come up with games that allow for so many players, especially ones that don’t make the game drag out into a multi-hour nightmare.Continue reading
I’ve mentioned before how Necromunda is a game for older, more experienced gamers. Well, if you are as old as me then you are very much excited about how the hobby (and your favourite game: Necromunda…) has turned out…yet, you are also very much driven to have the things you never had or always wished you did.
One of the words that can be used to describe what that is is ‘Nostalgia’…we’ll leave those other words out for just now…Continue reading
For the purposes of this list I wanted to stick to games that are strictly for two players. I did end up including a few that say they are for 2-4 (or more) but only because in my opinion they are really two player games and the ability to play with more is a bit of an afterthought and definitely not the way the games are at their best.
Who doesn’t love a good list? You can nod along in agreement or scream at the screen when your favourite isn’t included, or something you totally disagree with makes the list. As such, here is Greg’s Top 10 Games for 3-6 year olds*.
Necromunda offers a dynamic and structurally challenging gaming experience. This is doubly true if you have lots of scenery. Furthering this dynamism are the two gaming setting of Sector Mechanicus (Sprawling and ever climbing vertical play area) and Zone Mortalis (essentially a flat gaming area) both distinct and very different from each other. We are going to focus in on Sector Mechanicus and the towers of the Hive cities…or more exactly, the bridges of varying length and construction that hold those lofty spires together.Continue reading
In keeping up with current events and the general world climate, Sam decided it was time for our blog to include some more representation for our gaming base, which most certainly includes women! Continue reading
This month I (could have…) had a good shot at finishing up all the little projects from The Book Of Peril. Unfortunately, while doing these, I had a great idea for a really large project…so, this article marks the ‘almost finished’ point and will also begin a massive build that will be revealed in an article or two. What does it all mean? The Book Of Peril is hobby value. Buy it!
Last time I set the rather lofty goal of getting together all the superfluous models and scenery needed to play in the Badzones settings of the Book of Peril. While I like nothing more than fleshing out my tabletop world, I am always cognizant of the costs involved. Which is to say that Games Workshop stuff is the top of the pile in price as well as quality.
