    It was a close thing, but I am here to report that negotiations with Ikea High Command were fruitful, allowing evil to be vanquished. I was a little nervous, because I didn't actually get any shipping info for the missing hardware until Friday. But it arrived at my doorstep by 9am Saturday. We were outbound to a family commitment but it was nice to have the missing pieces in hand. Today after other chores, I steadied my nerves and went to install the doors. This was mostly straightfoward, and I was able to assembly-line a lot of it, but it all went well. I did have one hiccup that caused me to de-install all the doors and put them back on but otherwise things went well with actually very few adjustments. I'll let things settle overnight and then see if I need to square-up anything. The upper areas will become the home for my KDM and SoB collections, and Mrs. Zoxe's Super Dungeon Explore. The lower areas will likely be crammed with all sorts of games, although presently it's hiding my KDM Wave 2 boxes and Gloomhaven. I've not secured to the wall yet, but will - not sure if we want it along that wall or in the opposite corner. The pictures make it look smaller than it actually is. Total width is just under 6 feet - the KDM Phoenix standing guard is one of my largest figures with a 12" wingspan. The gaming surface was a $99 clearance find at our local Mendards. It's 53 x 40 and enough room to play most anything. Now, back to town to find solace at the local public house and await our next adventure.

    Rise of Tribes Rise of Tribes came in a couple of days ago. @RomyCat and I enjoyed it so much that we played it five times in a row. Players get to pick a tribe, use one of its special abilities to gather resources, make villages, and fight with other tribes over land. @RomyCat wanted to make sure I included a picture of the Saber Tooth Tiger CoCo.

    I meant to post this a long time ago. This is my Broken Token player board for Terraforming Mars. I stain it then painted the symbols in it to match the original player mats. They hold all your cubes and can stack on each other, keeping the cubes on each tray. Excellent for the game. I don't have to worry about the cat walking across and messing up our game now. For Christmas last year I did my sister her this Broken Token for TM. Then I had to put it together for her a few weeks later. I didn't mine. To me, the process was fun.

    So... I work as a Nurse at The a Children’s Hospital. Just recently finished this Unicorn for a 6yr old I’ve had the privilege of looking after while she waits for a new heart. Just delivered it on my shift the other night & she promptly named it “Pinky.” Her Mom took the picture of us & has given me the 👍🏻 To share it.

    My friend John and his wife have a tradition that they've shared with me. John and Linda live on Lake Owasso in Minnesota, and are the proud owners of a pontoon. The residents on this lake have a "parade" every 4th of July. Starting at 9:45 am, boats congregate at the west end of the lake and then proceed around the lake in a semi single file column. Last year I lost count at over 100 boats. Many people decorate their boats (my favorite is the pelican dingy that is donning a top hat and a US flag as a cape. The grand kids in the dingy are waving flags and having a blast). Residents not on boats like to sit near the shore and wave at the people on the boats as they pass by. We've been fortunate for quite a while (over a decade) to have acceptable to outstanding weather. We bring bloody marys and screwdrivers as well as snacks to enjoy. The first boat in the column is always the same boat. Most likely the original ring leader. A woman on that pontoon dresses up as the statue of liberty (including green face paint) and stands at the front of their pontoon, and waves to everyone on shore with great gusto. When we get back to the starting point, that pontoon stops and Lady Liberty lights her torch (probably about 100 sparklers) and salutes all the boats as they pass her by. The phone generations probably think we're a bunch of hicks, but it's a great way to spend the morning out on the lake.

    Proof that my stein has gone out to the world. I may have brought it to a game night strictly to show it off. I have my camera out and I’m photographing everything for my dice and accessories insta. I don’t really have a great macro lense, but I can get it done. (I needed a photologue)the dice have nothing to do with clank they just look nice

    My three-year-old daughter has this one: I will put the acorns in the wrong colored spots and she will giggle and say, “Daddy, you so crazy. That not right!” I don’t know how the actual game is played, but it’s great for initial level indoctrination into love of the hobby. I also have Echinda Shuffle for her, which she calls the Hedgehog Game.

    Some more pics of the new prototypes. I am very pleased with how these are turning out. They feel really good in the hand. A good size. Massive capacity.

    Roll Player In this awesome game you are preparing your adventurers for an show down with a boss (if playing with the expansion). The CoCo's were awesome for holding my money, experience, and badies I had beaten. The dice tray was perfect for rolling the dice. After playing with the Dragonkin race, I had to get a picture of my leopardwood CoCo right beside the playermat. I think DMG did an excellent job capturing the image of a cool dragon.

    You should take all the broken pieces and give it a proper Viking Lumberjack funeral pyre

    Here are some pics of new things that are coming out this week. Included are some very cool mimic boxes in Legendary Woods, a resin accentuated Dragon Tray, a new prototype, and a Chechen GM System that was preordered before the KS went live. That is a gorgeous piece of Chechen!

    Oh, @Serge Darveau, something will be on its way to you soon. This is a shot before its first coat of lacquer. It will be much prettier in a bit.

    That is sooo cool. I must resist temptation. I will be getting a bigger rolling tray when my game master system finial comes in, but it won't be made of leopardwood (though I almost upgraded it to be). I did pick this up, as I have long wanted a mimic chests. And its made from Bolivian rosewood.

    Check out the interview of one of the owners of DMG, Michael Konas. I get into a little bit of our origin story. It is a gripping tale filled with action and adventure. 😁 https://simplecast.com/s/b3009f73

    That new finish is a winner in my book. It looks really good, has a depth to it and comes off as almost natural.
