Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)

Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.

You can now pre-order my book

I know some of you know I was working on a book over the summer. Now everyone does, and you can pre-order it from Amazon.

www.amazon.com/Tabletop-Gaming-Manual-di...letop/dp/1785211498/

Get in now before it's decried by the whole gaming community for its rubbish content, and copies of it get passed around next year's Secret Satan like they're red-hot dog dirt.

The description on Amazon isn't terribly enlightening, so here's what's written on the back of the book:

"The Tabletop Gaming Manual will guide you through all aspects of games, from popular and traditional through to role playing and miniatures. It includes specific and specialist information for each area, appealing to the enthusiast market and serious gamer, but also to the curious beginner.

- A history of board games, ancient and modern.
- A brief overview of the hottest games on the market.
- How to pick, purchase and put away games for your collection.
- A hands-on guide to expanding and improving game components.
- Step-by-step guides to painting, modelling and sculpting your own miniatures.
- An exploration and explanation of popular gameplay mechanics.
- Designing and publishing your own games and variants."

Congratulations! That is very cool.
I assume there is a chapter on board game bowls? I don't know where to start.

Exactly one. If you want to know which one, you'll have to buy a copy. Or, y'know, just ask someone else who owns one.

I can't resist mentioning that those Space Marines on the cover I painted when I was about 14. If I'd have known where they'd end up, I might have taken more care.

It's a Haynes manual! That is pretty cool in and of itself. My dad used to xerox of page of Haynes manuals at the library to fix our crappy cars.
