  1. Cute video. I want the game now, but I've reached the end of my budget already. I'm backing Isle of Cats and Roll Player expansion. Perhaps I will get in in retail later.
  2. This game looks intriguing. I love fantasy theme and the artwork looks awesome. If I had a lot of money, I would back this one too.
  3. Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tcokgame/the-isle-of-cats?ref=user_menu This one was brought to my attention by @Barb Bliss. I could not pass on this game. Hits all the right marks: beloved theme, Tetris-like mechanics, great artwork, cute meeples, both easy "family" version and normal "gamer" version, experienced designer with excellent track record, and good game reviews. Other than price, I can't see any negatives.
  4. Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1152516291/roll-player-fiends-and-familiars-expansion/comments I know @tgpumpkin already backed this game because he is in the comments on the Kickstarter page. I love the interaction of the designer Keith Matejka with the backers. Lots of feedback is invited for new familiars, backstories, race's names. I really like that. I own both the base game and the other expansion. Both are great. There is an option that to get a Big Box to hold base and both expansion. The Big Box will not be coming to retail.
  5. They seemed to really enjoy The Bridge. Some funny jokes. I owe Expedition which they play much further on. Played it only once. Was an okay game. Got it when I also bought Luxor.
  6. Poor you. Sorry you have such a long wait. I've had mine for quite a while now and use them almost every time I play board games at home. Nowadays, its hard for me imaging playing certain games without them. They help so well with organization. Soon you will have yours.
  7. I've not heard of Shipwreck Arcana. Hope you have fun playing it. I recently got in Expedition: the Horror and Tiny Epic Mechs. I've not gotten around to playing them yet. Also bought Wingspan, which we enjoyed playing. Skull Tales with its many minis is suppose to arrive in the next week or two. Lots of painting in my future.
  8. Ohh, the game has a 3D element. That is cool.
  9. Ah, thanks for the advice. I've bought certain paints also because of advice here. And got that awesome sell on Reaper paints last Nov.
  10. I used Plastic Putty by Vallejo. It made of Acrylic resin. Got it through Amazon, I believe. Someone on a forum recommended it for this purpose.
  11. I've been enjoying my summer. And spending a lot of time working on painting minis. Here is some of my work. This is my most challenging piece to date. It came in five pieces. Its the first miniature I had to glue together. Then I had to buy a special putty to fix the cracks. Then I bought 3 metallic paints to use on it. It's become my "Flame and Joy" piece. My sister gave me the elf for Christmas. I bought the other two pieces. They look like they belong together. I love my portal. Can't wait to use it in a RPG secion. I worked a long time on this one, putting more and more shades of green on it. The final results is a monster I don't (and do) want to meet inside a game.
  12. Why did you you have to post that one? I very much wanted the base when it was first on Kickstarater bur I passed due to budget. Now I so want it again. Must remember budget...must remember....must.
  13. I have heard much about Too Many Bones. I would love to play the game, to see if I would like to buy it. It is on the expensive side, but it is suppose to have very high quality production.
  14. Those are pretty dice. Must resist. Must. I'm still waiting on my rogue dice from PolyHero Dice.
  15. I love Gloomhaven. My sister and I have logged 27 games, I think. We have been wanting to get it out and play again soon. The issue with owning too many games. So many I want to play...but time is limited. Also another reason to buy less games. I've only back 3 Kickstarters this year, and only 1 was a game. So far, I've only bought 6 new games and one expansion this year. Two where cheap ones using a gift card. Another was half price at Dirt Cheap. And yet another was a cheap used one from a friend. I'm still tracking everything at: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/248934/item/6599422#item6599422 Overall, I'm doing very well, far better than the last few years.
  16. Wow, that is the lowest I have ever seen the game. Good thing I already own it or I would be tempted to grab it. A few days ago I say an link on BGG to "pre-order" Wingspan for $55 on Amazon. I ordered it. Within an hour the price was back up to $80 plus $16 shipping. I have been watching it price jump back and forth form month. Decided to get it while it was briefly an its base price.
  17. So I need to remember to get a resin printer when I buy one someday.
  18. That is so sad. I'm sorry about your friend's sister. Over the years as a teacher, my school has experienced the lost of several teens due to various incidents. One of my students died in a 4-wheel accident. While he was jumping a hill, he lost control and the four wheeler landed on him, breaking his neck. Another one was on a dock at a pond. He knew he couldn't swim, but he climbed over the railing and was handing onto the other side. His friends didn't notice when he accidentally slipped into the water and disappeared until it was too late. One of my students in my graphic design class made a mural in honor of him which stayed as a wall paper on the computer all year.
  19. I saw that movie about it with Will Smith. After watching it, there is no way I would play football. But then again, I have never played it or plan to. Being a girl automatically prevents you from playing at most schools. Many years ago I did teach a stocky girl who was determined to play at the jr. high where I taught. She tried to enter the try-outs but the coaches strongly discouraged her from it. I don't think they gave her a straight "no" but a mostly no. She was disappointed. Personally, I think she had the fire and muscle for being a great player.
  20. Glad your teacher was merciful about your grade. Last year of my students got an concussion from falling off the back of a moving vehicle. She thought she was fine, but she began acting a bit strangely and had headaches so her parents took her to the hospital. She was out of school a few days and then was fine.
  21. Wish I had a 3D printer. The prices have dropped over the years. Maybe in a few more years it will affordable for me. I have brought a few 3D printed miniatures. I have noticed none of them are completely smooth on the sides, but have faint streaks. I was warned about this on the product pages before I brought them. With a good paint job, my 30 tombstones I brought cheap look good. It would be nice if the streaks could be removed from 3D printing...or perhaps it depends on the printer and material used. I don't know enough about 3D printers yet.
  22. I twice got concussions and didn't realize it until many days later. Both times I had no memory of when the injury happened, but after looking at the clues, I am very certain one happened at night when I was sleepy got up and the 2nd time I may have hit my head on the back of my keyboard tray at my desk. I now keep bottles of water by my bed at night to cut down on sleep walking. The first time it happened, I noticed I was strangely feeling dizzy at work for several days. I developed a terrible headache /neckache. I searched online for possible causes. Saw concussion come up in the Google search and I promptly dismissed it. If I had been physical injured surely I would know it. Neck and head pain become worst. Should I go to the doctor? Back to the internet I went while at work. I finally read about concussions. Saw that it is actually normal to not have a memory of the impact. I finally put the clues together. I had lately noticed I had a chipped tooth. Didn't know why. It just suddenly showed up. And my cheek had been cut from the inside. When I put all the dates together, and read that the head pain may not start until several days after the impact, I finally understood what happened. I searched my goggle memories of being half asleep and heading to the bathroom. My best guest of what happened based on the clues was that I was walking towards the bathroom. Maybe tripped over a cat or was just clumsy and lost my balance. My head hit a table, chipping a tooth and the tooth cutting into my cheek. I don't remember hitting a table, but I have the faintest of memories of my hand roughly grabbing a table and my finger hurting (at least I think its a real memory. I'm not 100% sure). It's totally weird to be injured and not remember how it happened. I felt like a detective trying to investigate clues to put the whole picture together. Once I finally figured out I was dealing with an concussion, I was able to relax, at least mentally. I didn't go to the doctor, but spent a lot of time in bed the next few days relaxing (and watching TV). And I keep a water bottle by my bed.
  23. Love his pose. I'm reminded of a few teenagers I teach. I could not help but notice your reflection in the background.
  24. @Zoxe your ships are totally awesome. I'm always impressed with your work. How those colors blended together on the princess liner was breath taking. 🌟
  25. Your terrain looks great. Perfect for a game.
