Long time of no updates. I’m sorry!
On Sunday we watched Howl’s Moving Castle because my gf had never seen it before. She loved it so much that she wanted to watch it a second time back-to-back. This is her watching it again, kneeling on the floor in front of the TV being all enchanted by the movie. If that’s not the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen then I don’t know what is!
Alright, so much for that. What happened in my gaming world?
- Uni has started again and now that things are in full swing I have little time to play (or paint for that matter) but I did manage to get a couple game nights with dear friends going so that was nice. Played some Agricola, Eldritch Horror, Lords of Waterdeep, Smash Up, X-Wing, 7 Wonders, and lots of Love Letter.
- I just participated in my first BGG math trade and scored some pretty sweet trades. My $30 dinged up ASL starter kit that I never got to the table got traded for a like-new Village plus the somewhat rare expansion Village Inn (together about $60). Then I traded my second Mice and Mystics expansion away for 7 Wonders Cities, and I got Agricola for Combat Commander: Pacific. All in all I’m very happy with my first math trade and I can only recommend it! If you are new to math trades too or you are intimidated by them, Rhado did a very helpful runthrough on math trades here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/video/32552/outside-scope-bgg/rahdo-runs-through-math-trades
- Then I’m also still waiting for stupid Warhammer 40k Conquest to be released but now at least we have an official date (3rd of Oct). I preordered it right after GenCon and after weeks of waiting and almost losing interest it’s finally due to ship any day now. That was somewhat fortunate too though because that way I could take advantage of a couple CSI daily deals that I was then able to combine with my on-hold preorder. I got a pack of Imperial Aces for $14, a Warhammer Diskwars expansion for $14, and today the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game - Skull and Shackles base set for $25. Pretty sweet deals!!
That’s pretty much all for now!

:) thanks mate
MOAR TANKS for my FoW Waffen-SS!
I just need to figure out a good and cheap way to add some weight to these beautiful Plastic Soldier Company tanks, and actually while typing this, it dawned on me that I can just glue small pebbles with PVA on the inside. Genius!
For the record: The upper and lower hulls aren’t glued together yet so I can add the weight.
So we play Texas hold’em every Sunday night and I won again. I was really lucky with my hands but still 😃😎
We also played Smash Up but I only made second there I think. Second or third. My friend just got it a week ago but I was miffed that he hadn’t even read the rules before tonight.
He literally opened the box for the first time when we were all there wanting to play so of course questions came up during the game and he would turn to me and ask me what to do and I’m like “WTF do I know? I’ve never played it before, it’s YOUR game, and YOU’ve had it sitting here for a week! Why is it my responsibility now to know what to do!?”
People apparently just don’t appreciate the time and effort it takes to learn and be able to explain a new game well
This is an awesome game! The Kickstarter for the next standalone game in the series is running for another 12 hours from now!! Get in in it and get lots of sweet extras for free!
We played tonight and had a blast again. I played Doug and Wanda. In a fortunate turn of events, Wanda found the chainsaw and then for the remainder of the game basically skated up and down the streets turning walkers into bloody piles of mush using said chainsaw while loudly chanting “AMERICA! FUCK YEAH!” after every kill.
Amy took one for the team and sacrificed her life to lead the abomination and its cohort of mindless minions away from the group so we could escape unnoticed, only to realise that I could’ve just shot the abomination earlier with my two magnums and the hollow-point ammo I found and could’ve saved ourselves all the trouble of frantically trying to find petrol to make molotov cocktails out of the glass bottles that Phil had. And amy actually died only because we drew an “all walkers get another turn”-card. So unlucky and then we realised it was all in vain! She could’ve been SAVED!
A real American hero.
All in all, it was a pretty epic game 😎
No one ever tells you that anything hobby related always takes three times as long when you suffer from chronic perfectionism, but after another day, I finally have all minis sorted, positioned, glued, and ready for basing!
Also three new battlefront plastic StuGs because #stuglyfe #yolo
Ps.: all the prone miniatures are not in their final positions yet and will be glued once the bases are spackled
