  1. Ok so since @Thomas Browne @Barb Bliss @LuckyIke @Serge Darveau @RomyCat and others have been enthusiastic wanting to spend my money and ripping me for stalling on the castle tray I figured I’d give you all a chance to provide deep, insightful feedback of what I should do that’s just short of giving any of you my credit card information. heres the deal....tg is going to buy some form of rolling tray from these canine strong peeps. It’s definitive....just a matter of timing. The question is this.... ....do I buy a fancy wood dragon/castle tray that I’ve been wanting (fancy being wenge) or ....do I buy a fiery game master system. the answer of both is not permitted . I really can’t swing the mythic wood game system at this time. Upside is more functionality to gm and it definitely serves as a rolling tray :). The downside to the gm is I don’t rpg so I may not use its full use. Upside to rolling tray is getting a nicer wood and fancy shmancy art as I roll my dice. The downside to a rolling tray is that’s all it does (but looks damn sexy doing it) unless I’m mathing wrong both are similar in price. Gm might be a tad more if I get a wood sculpt. so.....go ahead and spend my money. Sending gin to @Barb Bliss is also prohibited as an answer
  2. I haven't been able to really play many games given my work schedule. Ironically this past weekend I got Rise of Fenris, Zombicide Green Horde, and Too Many Bones Undertow all the same day. I got Brass the week before. Now they just stare at me mocking me. Definitely have catching up to do.
  3. I am but I feel like they're pricey. Am I wrong on that?
  4. *finishes a gin and tonic* Really? I haven't noticed anything strange
  5. @yatescory plus I’m not sure how the kiddos will take to playing it. Rise of tribes I think is probably more approachable.
  6. *hangs gourd in shame* though I have it in the forefront to play soon. It was actually on my list this weekend but then people weren’t up for playing games on Sunday
  7. @RomyCat and others....played some Rise of Tribes this weekend and it’s avery good game. Nice midweight game that has some good meat to it and plays at a good clip. Glad I got a second chance on it at gencon
  8. TRAITOR!!!!! Fire her @Konas no but seriously though game does look interesting and fun. Plus Homestar Runner!!!! Keep telling myself though it’s time to adult. I said no to a slew of gencon games that were probably more robust than trogdor. Dont you dare throw down “come and get me” @Barb Bliss either
  9. You didn’t need to add the kdm pics ya know nice pickups, glad you got some good stuff out of it. I realized after the con I forgot to get s terraforming mars organizer. Sorry we missed each other again. I’m new to this con stuff so I’m still figuring things out. I feel like I flubbed gencon and missed some real cool stuff but st least I still had a good time. Maybe next year youll have to tell me how founders is. I thought about it last year but it seemed like it was not scratching the right itch for me. I can’t wait to try root and get the base game preorder in the mail (I got the expansion at least lol). Another game I wish I would have tried out there was coimbra. Looked interesting and the board is dynamic .
  10. I know! You would think a game like that would call to me but it didn’t. Art didn’t match my tastes. I’m sure those that got it will enjoy it.
  11. So many of us use Kickstarter to back games before they’re released. The question is what games did you either back and pull out or ALMOST backed but didn’t that you regretted afterwards? right now for me there are 3: Root Rise of Tribes Rise of Moloch simply put....I didn’t have the funds and needed to ease up on kickstarting. The fact that they all start with the letter R is likely a coincidence
  12. @Konas I will say those sabertooth rolling trays were amazing looking from RoT KS. You guys hit it out of the park with those.
  13. I got the Deluxe edition fortunately. I was so giddy when I saw it being sold. I LOVE the fact it fits into the box. So I had to pay a little more than KS but I'm very fortunate I could pick it up a year later with everything Same goes with Root
  14. I KNOW!!!!!! It's blown my mind because I've been involved in some of their KS affairs as well and so when I see the two worlds merging in pictures with Leder, Kyle, and Jeremiah in front of Dogmight storefront I was like AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Kyle was the one who first told me via Twitter. WORLDS COLLIDING!!!!!!! Sadly, I forgot to get a pin from them and am waiting on Root base game from preorder even though I still have the expansion now. Can't wait
  15. Jeremiah has a glorious beard whose might likely repels the nastiest germs. People with beards in general exude an aura of such power and majesty that no infection stands a chance against the vitality of a bearded warrior.
  16. And yes...that box in box action right there for extra protection
  17. Just got Brass yesterday! Oh my gourd I can’t wait....
  18. It was awesome seeing you @Konas @Lindsey again and meeting @Shamgar and @Zoe. I got to meet ANNIE too!!!!!!!!! Loved seeing you guys and even happier your booth was hopping. ”. Big things happening that I cannot discuss yet but hopefully soon.” ..... *whispers* dusty doooooommmm............
  19. I REALLY want KD:M. I couldn't justify getting it though. That's okay though....I have a bench and a sunset to reflect on what could have been
  20. I thought of you when I walked by the kdm booth. I dare not walked in and be tempted by the $400 monstrosity. I meant to go to broken token but didn’t. Hopefully they’ll be at grandcon again. Sunday I got hit from an amazon deal of the day sale for gencant peeps. Huge list of games on sale. I pulled the trigger on castles of mad king Ludwig and imperial settlers. Almost got wasteland express. Fortunately no more kickstarters that I know of. Have to try out my miniature paint kit still but if it catches on I have plenty to paint with zombicide....massive darkness...rise of moloch.
  21. Noooiiiccceeee....Dont feel bad missing me I was there only for a day And it was a last minute add from an event I was going to this past weekend (smashing pumpkins in Pittsburgh on Saturday). I’m planning for a 4 day visit in 2019 though so pending a big event you can count me for that. You doing grandcon? @Konas recognized me as did @Lindsey from a year ago. I was so excited to meet the others I hadn’t met before including @Shamgar who talked to me more about his role. I would have hung out longer but they have a business to run and that has to come first than talking to a gourd they know they have locked as a customer. I appreciated they spent a little time with me though. did you post a pic of your loot?
  22. So I went to my first gencon and....I was completely overwhelmed lol. It’s okay though because I was only there for a day and my main purpose was to scout and pick up a few things. I’ve learned the following things from my pains as a rookie. 1). Plan ahead and pick events close to each other- I was inefficient with my time because I kept traveling back and forth and lost key demo time. I need to plan my days out better and make sure I do things close together before moving to another section. 2) you can never have enough water- I read the tips for water and brought 3 bottles but that wasn’t enough. Apparently the aura of gamers has an energy that slowly dehydrates you resulting in -1 penalties to energy and hydration levels every 15 mins. 3)the curse of FOMO on your wallet is real- I thing I was good for the most part....but I had to hold myself back on the hard sale. Ever dell was a big temptation that I avoided but rise of tribes caught me . Always good to remind yourself that fomo is a sales tactic most of the time. 4) gencon is crazy but can be a lot of fun. It got too busy at times and I was sad I missed out in being able to connect with people more often but it’s a lot of fun and I’m hoping to go all 4 days next year and bring some massive gourdian style with it The Loot:
  23. In a related note....the college students move back in a couple of weeks......the busy season is upon me.
  24. @Serge Darveau considering that the entire movie features a walking skeleton ....zombies....and other decrepit creatures....I think it’s fair having terrifying images of having hallowed out pumpkins . Quite the brilliant movie...though the above images are haunting.... no points lost. @Thomas Browne given that you have now called @Barb Bliss out on non denial denials..... me out on entrapment..... and now @Serge Darveau on point etiquette ....I’m wondering if you have some sort of secret underdog oversight committee responsibility that @Konas gave you that we’re unaware of. Either that or your career is in the judicial branch in real life
