Game Information

The smell of the salt breeze. The creak of rigging in the air. You’re in sight of the port of Tobago, when you see a ship off in the distance, on an intercept course. Word from the crows-nest is that the ship has run up the fleur-de-lis. The French Navy! You order the crew to man their stations and load the cannons. As the larger ship draws closer, volleys of fire are exchanged, shattering masts and shredding sails. All at once, grappling hooks sail from the enemy ship. They’re trying to board! As the enemy pours onto your ship,...
Ben's Magmic Battleforge - A Painting Guide

Game Information

Finally, GW has produced a piece of dwarf - sorry, duardin - themed scenery. Fyreslayers got a very nice new update recently which included three Magmic Invocation models, and a Magmic Battleforge that provides a couple of interesting buffs to everyone's favourite flame-haired fanatics. I was really excited for this release and so set to painting the invocations and the forge as soon as I got them home. Since I wasn't overly keen on the example on the box for the forge (way too much gold) I decided to go with something that meshed more nicely with the colours...

Game Information

Capture the flag with wizards and spells. Wiz-War was first published in 1985 by Jolly Games.

It went out of print after it's 7th edition which was published in 1997. Fantasy Flight Games published the 8th edition in 2012. It is considered a "beer & pretzels" game. Do you agree? What do you think of Wiz-Wars? Do you have a...

Game Name
This week we are flashing way back with Titan, which was originally published in 1980. It was out of print for 10 years, from 1998 until 2008 when Valley Games published a new edition.  It has been called a "Masterpeice of Ameritrash design." It has also been called a "fragile blood bath." What do you think? Love it or hate it? Do you still play it?
Letters from Sag -- Space Hulk at the May Getaway

Game Information

Game Name
On the short list of games that don’t require another review, Space Hulk is near the top.  But on occasion, you stumble into absurdity, and that happened during the May Getaway when my buddy Sam opened his box to find he had left all his Genestealers at home on his workbench for painting.

Sometimes it’s not what you know, but who you know.  This morning, when Tomb hit the table in front of me for perhaps the fifth time, I had an ace in the hole that virtually none of the rest of you will have – Sippi Steve.
Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition
U ubarose Updated June 06, 2019 1380   0

Game Information

The release of Mansions of Madness in 2011 was a highly anticipated event, which quickly turned from happy excitement to bitter grumblings. The game was plagued by misprints, as well as criticized for its complexity, long set up time, limited number of scenarios, and, of course, those weird little puzzles. Despite this, Mansions of Madness had its fans and received two big box expansions, and 6 print on demand scenarios.  In 2016 the first edition of Mansions of Madness was retired and the second edition of Mansions of Madness was released. This edition did away with...
Letters from Sag -- Aquädukt at the May Getaway
S Sagrilarus Updated June 03, 2019 1207   0

Game Information

Game Name
May Getaway days don’t exactly leap out of the gate at 6am. Part of our play space is one of the bedrooms this year (we’re rarely in the same house more than once or twice and this is a new venue this year), so more than a few players are up past midnight. I turned off the light around 1am and was back in the gaming room with my packet of Pop-Tarts by 8. The early people often kick off the day with lighter fare and this morning was no exception. Aquädukt is a game...
