Good idea: play Eldritch Horror with your friends on a friday night.
Bad idea: invite your new girlfriend over to play and watch her become utterly overwhelmed by the game and probably lose all desire to play any board game with you ever again.

…new (and old) followers! This started as only a side blog but it starts gaining more and more traction than my main blog had in a while. I appreciate everyone new and encourage you to be active, write and ask questions, get to know me, introduce yourselves, share tips, opinions, and suggestions, and whatever else is on your mind.
Expect a little update tomorrow or in the next few days about Ares Games’ latest title “Sails of Glory,” a miniatures wargame of naval combat in the age of sail. I’ve had it for a while now but hadn’t been able to play. Tomorrow I’ll finally get to try it out with a buddy and there will be lots of pictures and some initial reviewing thoughts.
In serious need of minature painting tips! Please help

Nothing much, really. School is really demanding at the moment and I have tons to do. Nevertheless I’m currently making an insert for Star Wars X-Wing because there are just SO many freaking tokens and components that it’s a freaking nightmare having it all in small bags.
This is my progress so far. There will be two layers, bottom for mission specific stuff and things you don’t need as often like asteroids etc., top layer for focus, evade, target locks, etc.
I’ll post updates as I make progress. The longest part is really coming up with a layout concept so the rest shouldn’t take me all too long
I think I need an intervention
