    One year already done for this forum. Why this could happens, 'cause the people are here with their passions, making this alive day after day. Passion of the boardgame, passion of gaming gear, passion of WOOD, passion of art, passion of dogs (and cats), passion of doing something wonderful. One year, 182 members, new friendship from everywhere. Some are cool, other are savage like me even if I only cook pumpkin twice in 30 years lol. Everybody here are special and we could see it in all the comments everyday. I'm glad to be a part of this. Long life for DMG

    Currently driving across Missouri. First four hours were like driving in a washing machine! Omg the rain. We'll stop in Joplin for lunch and are currently on track to make it to TX in time for the pizza party welcome dinner. We left work early last night and after a quick run home, got on the road. Actually set the Miniature Market physical store as our destination to make full use of our geeky road trip. Told the shop staff what we were doing and they appeared pleased and honored to be part of our tour.

    I've started typing a few times to consolidate some of my Reapercon thoughts. Nothing I've written yet really conveys exactly what happened to us. "We had a great/wonderful/excellent/terrific time" is kind of cliche. We signed up not really knowing what to expect. What we found is that Reapercon is first and foremost about the painting aspect of the hobby. Secondarily, it's about D&D and a smattering of other tabletop systems. I saw just a handful of board games in play, but there were acres of tabletop RPGs. But painting, lots of painting. The people at attend Reapercon are a tight knit crew and quite fantastic. It's not a "small" con, but it's far smaller than PAX-U, and it goes on for 4+ full days (with most people arriving Wednesday evening for the pre-party and many staying through to Monday morning before setting off for home, so it's almost 6 days for many). Here's the part that I have trouble describing: we got adopted by two groups and then met friends-of-friends and friends-of-friends-of-friends. After 5 Gencons, 3 Blizzcons, a PAX-U, and random visits to the game stores near us, I feel like I can find common ground and have a pleasant conversation with most nerds. But in the small confines of a mult-day event, those incidental encounters were compounded with repeat conversations. We started Wednesday night awkward and anonymous, but went up to our room on Sunday with handshakes and hugs. It all happened in a blur, but looking back at how the weekend evolved, it couldn't have happened any other way - and could have never been planned or premeditated. So, we had a great time; already talking about next year.

    Name: Ghost Race: Husky-Wolf Class: Rogue Best Known Skill: Consuming all the tasty food without the party noticing Famous for: Her ability to communicate with those large red sirens Most Ashamed of: Getting startled by a beetle during a heist Ghost is well known in the thieves’ guild as one of the best. Some think her skills are wasted on the thievery of food, but they know not the glory of such exquisite flavors. She is quick to steal the hearts of others and never forgets a scent. You will often find her sneaking out of the party’s stronghold to run wild in search of new and exciting flavors. To pass time, while in the stronghold, she often hunts mice and brings them to her group for inspection and tasty rewards.

    Love your Sc-fi Club. A few years back, kids started hanging out after school in my computer lab to play Minecraft which led me to creating the Tech Club. Besides the ever popular Minecraft, they shared about their favorite apps, YouTubers, and anime.

    Hello from Texas! Got in last night after a long day on the road, but was able to attend the meet and greet last night and put a few names with faces from the Reaper forums. This is a much (much) smaller event than I'm used to. This one hotel is very new, and huge, but our entire convention takes up only a part of it. It's interesting watching the business traveler muggles take in the sea of black shirts and long hair in the lobby. 😉 Small also means much more personal and less crazy than Gencon. We've already met some great folks. Our first painting class is in about 45 mins, and then we'll do some shopping in the vendor hall and maybe a Reaper factory tour.

    So I sponsor a Sci-Fi club at the high school where I work and today was our annual club fair. We had a small attraction going where if you rolled a nat 20 you didn’t have to pay your dues. And I got to show off some Dog Might goodness.

    Hi Everyone, I'm a Magic player who's looking for a new deck box that can not only transport the deck (i.e., 80-90 double sleeved Magic cards consisting of a 60 card main deck + 15 card sideboard + 5-10 card tokens), but also the other gaming paraphernalia that go along with playing a game of Magic (i.e., dice, tokens, etc.). I stumbled upon the Sentinel and it looks like it COULD be that solution, but I have a few questions: Will my deck fit into the Sentinel? I double sleeve my deck for additional protection, however, this slightly increases the thickness of the cards. The 'Card Triple' Interior Bottom states that each well will hold 50+ sleeved cards. With a total capacity fo 150+ sleeved cards across the three wells I assume 80-90 double sleeved cards will be fine. Can anyone speak to the size fo the Sentinel as it pertains to double sleeved Magic cards? Will the Sentinel protect my deck? Looking at the image of the 'Card Triple' Interior Bottom on the website, the corners of each well appear to be slightly curved / angled. Do these corners have the potential to impact the shape or condition of my sleeved cards? I plan on carrying the deck box to and from my local game store in a shoulder bag. Are the magnets strong enough to hold the two sides of the Sentinel together in transit? Finally, if anyone could share any pictures of their Sentinel being used to store Magic cards it would be hugely appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!

    Okay, finally posting my Scythe update!!! A few weekends ago, we had a six player game with two newbies who don't play much. This went terribly for me because I focused wayyyy too much on my objective, was really stubborn about my plans, and.. well, I probably had too much hard cider, honestly. Me (Olga & Changa, making this even more embarrassing, because yes, I ended on the factory): 20 points... Newbie 1 (Gunter & Nacht): 30 points R (Connor & Max, from the expansion): 30 points Newbie 2 (Anna & Woitek): 45 points A (Akiko & Jiro, from the expansion): 47 points Isaac (Zehra & Kar): 65 points because of course Then we played the weekend after, back to our original four, and all of the stars aligned, finally... I think this was the best game we've had so far and it's clear we all figured out wtf to do now. Isaac (Connor & Max): 58 points A (I forget who she was playing??): 81 points Me (Gunter & Nacht): 96 points R (Akiko & Jiro): 110 points I would have won if R hadn't been ballsy and gone into combat with Isaac at the end, I think. Isaac also made a mistake getting into combat with me at the very end there. He thought I wouldn't put all my power into it (I was almost at max), but I'm an all or nothing kinda gal, especially because I wanted another star on the board. So, even though I only had one piece and he had three, I crushed him. He had nearly zero power, because he was focusing a bit too much on the objective he had, which required him to be at zero. It was an awesome game, though. It felt like all four of us were playing, instead of Isaac & A and R & me playing our own games within one, hahaha. I also didn't partake in any alcohol for that one, so... this lightweight may keep that habit up for Scythe.

    I see you went all out. I got to play Star Realms Frontier over the weekend. My sister and I enjoyed it. Played 4 games. The first two were vs. and I loved building up my deck while trying to destroy my sister. Won a game and lost a game. Then we decided to play cooperative to take out a boss. We choose what we thought was the weakest one because he started with only 25 health per player. Turns out, he was extremely powerful and clobbered us mercilessly until we were both destroyed. So we next tried the first boss mentioned in the directions, guessing that the easiest came first. This time we fared much better. Like us, the boss slowly gains in better attacks, giving us a chance to get stronger. In the end the boss and us were hitting each other with 15 plus attacks. We won, but it was close. Lots of fun.

    I know we have had some discussions about designing some DMG T-Shirts so I wanted to start a thread for it. We were thinking the DMG symbol on the front and a funny saying on the back. Something that conveys our personality. We kinda want to avoid the GOT WOOD? statement. @Lindsey sent me some ideas. I will post them here. Now.

    I have a suggestion for a wood species to add to your lineup. Rowan tree (Sorbus aucuparia)! The modern name is Mountain Ash. The Asian\European variety not the North American variety. This species is very significant in Celtic, and Norse mythology and lore. NOBODY else sells any Rowan dice that I can find. I'd buy some tomorrow if I could. Here is one link talking about it's significance: https://thepresenttree.com/blogs/news/rowan-tree-meaning Here is a link to a celtic legend about a particular island that contained a Rowan Tree. The ruin's of my clan's ancestral castle is on that island! I recently went to Scotland boated out to the island and climbed up to the castle ruins. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fraoch_Eilean,_Loch_Awe

    Ok so this is my personal opinion, but having received so many wonderful wooden gaming products from Dog Might Games, I have fallen in love with chechen, a very beautiful wood. It has become my favorite wood so far that they have put up for sell and that is saying something because they have a lot of beauties in their shop. 😜 The beauty in this wood lies in that is it chatoyant which means when the light hits it, it exhibits beautiful changing luster throughout the wood. It also has a strong golden blonde and reddish brown tone, highlighted with other dark streaks. Simply put, its pretty stunning. Below are some youtube links I put up that show off chatoyancy in the wood. As well as some pictures. However chechen, will always look way better in person than in pictures due the chatoyancy it exhibits in lighting! Don't forget that when you think about which wood to pick! Pick chechen! Please feel free to add any wonderful DMG pictures of chechen that you might have! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSJV8LVkleQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-0v46fRQgo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0HgIwch1XQ

    I need another rolling tray like I need another hole in my head, but I can't get this tray out of my head. I'll put something for you into my will, if you put is in your will for me. 😀
