  1. Pretty place, but too many people for this midwest gal.
  2. Yesterday the skies opened up and dumped about 2" of rain with cool temps. Perfect weather today. 30 degrees drop in the dewpoint!
  3. Village Attacks! 2nd to last mob time 8. A LOT of putzy details, and hard to reach places. Note: Mrs. Fisher's sister photobombing...
  4. That canarywood screen is the best screen to ever hit the site.
  5. When was the last time you saw a dewpoint in the 80's? Look at that heat index too.
  6. Nice! I was just in my yard to water the containers. Yuck! A week of in the 90s with high dewpoints continues for another week at least. I knew it was going to suck when all the windows in the house were fogged up when I got up this morning. Just like last year, the day lilies are getting burned through, and it's too lousy out to go out and deadhead and enjoy the zen of it.

  8. You should check out the tread on Viking advice. You'd fit right in.
  9. The board game goddess is a fickle bit*.
  10. Etherfields has gone live today. Funded in 2 minutes. Looks cool and I jumped on.
  11. Both my "mint games" are still in the shrink wrap. When I saw them, I thought that they would be a nice x-mas gift to a service person that is deployed over the holidays, so I haven't tried them out.
  12. That's a good price @yatescory for the card stands. There is a set of 4 exotics on the stock page now for $69. Those are lovely cocos too. Unfortunately we think alike and I have similar sets.
  13. I just cut/pasted from an update email. I've never created (and never will) a KS project. When I get the email about the launching, I'll put the link here.
  14. fyi - War in Christmas Village news. "Expansion": "The Gingerbread Gang" coming in for, insert gag here, "Christmas in July". In other news...I’ve decided to launch the next Kickstarter for “The Gingerbread Gang” with a Christmas in July theme for #breakkickstarter on July 15th, as we finish up international fulfillment, as well as, the shipment of loose minis.
  15. As fate would have it, I got an update from the Village Attacks project. Their store is up and running if you wanted to buy it. Can't click the links on work computer, but here's some cut/paste from the email. So if you like the idea of the monsters (you) being the heroes, and those pesky villagers being the villians, this looks like a load of fun. The minis are really fun. https://www.grimlordgames.com/store
  16. Games that are good but don't get play time anymore, maybe someone else would enjoy them.
  17. OK that's cool looking. Maybe we need an Underdog/DMG game swap.
  18. Now I'm going to have to Google that.
  19. Trying to decide what to do next. I'm leaning towards Grimm Forest and/or those mini dogs. I think I'll save War Time in Christmas Town for October.
  20. I finished Massive Darkness. That was a massive amount of minis. Village Attacks is a lot less. 15 ish monsters, 15 ish town heroes, 7-8 villager mobs (8 each), 10 traps, troll. So a lot of stuff, but not even close to MD. The troll in the game is fun. It's basically a chaotic roaming monster that can attack anyone that it runs across.
  21. I'm 3/4 done with my 2nd to last villager mob and after varnishing more traps, will be down to just one trap. So Village Attacks will only have this left after I finish this mob/traps: one village mob 2 monster heroes the troll
  22. #simplepleasures A LONG TIME friend of my sister is tearing down her parents' house due to the costs of bringing it up to code. Her brother remembered that my dad and my grandfather had signed the plaster, so they went looking for it. I remember my dad saying he saw his dad's signature on some plaster in a house he was working in after he stripped old wallpaper off, and he decided to sign the wall next to his father's signature. I would have been in 6th grade at the time. Good God! That's coming up on half a century ago. Seeing his handwriting is like having him back again, if just for a few minutes. From Miranda's email: In emptying the house, my brother reminded us that your father signed the wall before he hung the wall paper in 1969. The plasterers had signed the wall after the house was moved in 1910 and your grandfather worked for that company. I can't see their signatures, but your dad's is loud and clear. It's dated 1979, but it was really 1969. I think he was probably remembering that the next month would be 1970 and got confused. Hope you enjoy the attached pictures. My grandfather's signature from 1910...
