  1. 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/it
  2. 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.
  3. So I need to remember to get a resin printer when I buy one someday.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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 Googl
  9. Love his pose. I'm reminded of a few teenagers I teach. I could not help but notice your reflection in the background.
  10. @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. 🌟
  11. Your terrain looks great. Perfect for a game.
  12. I like the music in the vid. Cool seeing DMG logo at the end.
  13. That sci-fi mat @Serge Darveau looks awesome. @Adam, I've been thinking about buying Wingspan when its price levels out (its ridiculous what is has been going for on Amazon). How do you like the game? It's been nominated for Spiel des Jahres Game of the Year. Does it deserve the hype?
  14. Thanks for sharing those links. New Kickstarters for me to check out.
  15. June Kickstarter List: Got a several Kickstarters in recently. Welcome to... --My sister and I LOVE this one and have played it a lot since in came in during April Welcome To Dino World--we have not played this one yet, but it looks cool. Hope to do so soon. Neta-Tanka--wow, this is not your typical Euro. A very cool game. Blew my mind at times as I had to learn to balance progress chains and time itself. If you want smoke meat, another character (which could be yours or another player) must prepare the meat. But if no one went hunting this time, there will be no meat
  16. My second wave expansions came in today for 7th Continent. My sister and I had a blast opening and sorting everything. After seeing how often the adventure deck is shuffled and handled, I had ordered sleeves for it (but not for the rest of the 1000+ cards). Love the minis which came with several of the expansions. And the cool bonus mini which relates to an animal I use to raise. The perfect bonus to me. After we finished sorting and sleeving cards, we played the intro curse "Crystal Song" which is short. As we played the weird floating plants showed up a few times. Creepy and cool. I sooo wan
  17. I just read that post on Kickstarter. Awesome artwork. Can't wait to paint those minis. I've been painting a lot lately. Hopefully will have pictures up in the next few days of some of my pieces.
  18. I'm eager for the rest of my The 7th Continent items to come in. Shipping has begun but I have not gotten my notice yet. While waiting, my sister and I finished our third curse which came with the base game. Here is our logged totals: Logged: 12 hours = Voracious Goddess curse10 hours = An Offering to the Guardians curse14 hours = Dark Chest of the Damned (had to kill my beloved goat to survive the last challenge)
  19. Both my sister and I are both now on Season 2 of the series. Still loving seeing your screen shine in every episode. Looking forward to the future Season 3.
  20. It reminds me a lot of Tang Garden, which I'm eagerly waiting for. I really like Eduardo Baraf who runs Pencil First company. I've backed several of his games and watched a lot of his video reviews. I like that he gives shout-out to lots of other games, not just the ones from his company. He is also good friends with Keith Matejk who designed Roll Player. They worked on the game Skull Hollow together, which I am also waiting on delivery for. As Tang Garden has the same theme as this one, I might skip it. Mainly because I'm forcing myself to limit how many games I back on Kickstarter this
  21. That is a lot of spiders attacking. My sister hates spiders. She won't even touch the spider swam minis I recently painted. Love to see her try to play your game when the spiders are on the march.
  22. Thanks, @Adam, I'm reading the articles now. I have been wanting Wingspan and trying to keep an eye on when the next shipment hits. Wow, sounds like Jamey has let power get to him. I've really liked him and own many of his games. It does reminder me what Nintendo did several decades ago forcing companies to see their games at the price they set. If a retail company gave a discount, Nintendo cut down a lot on the products they sent. Nintendo was sued and lost. Jamey needs to be careful how he treats retailers.
  23. I was given Arkham Horror card game for Christmas but have yet to play it. School is almost out so I need to re-read the rules and give it a shot.
  24. Wow, that is a lot of minis. Have fun painting.
  25. Just went and read all the back post. What a terrible guy he is. I'm glad he was reported to the police.
