Epic Card Game demo

Posted on July 17th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Last night I ran a demo of the Epic Card Game at The Sentry Box. Epic is a fantasy card game, in the vein of games like Magic, that was recently funded on Kickstarter by White Wizard Games, the folks who did Star Realms. I’ll be discussing the game with some reference to the rules […]

The problem with Battletech

Posted on July 13th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

One of the games, and game universes, that I have always liked has been Battletech. The game is supported by background material that spans over 100 years of concurrent history and also stretches into the game’s “past” 300 years as well. These periods have their own technology, Mech designs, personalities, politics and events. The Battletech […]

Star Wars Armada event report

Posted on May 31st, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Today was the first Star Wars Armada event at The Sentry Box and five intrepid souls, plus myself, made it out to the store to fight for glory and variant art cards. I suspect that we may have had a higher turnout if not for the fact that Imaginary Wars had a Imperial Assault Regional […]

300pt Star Wars Armada gaming

Posted on May 24th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Nathan came over on Wednesday and we played a 300pt game of Star Wars. This was my second game and my first game at 300pts so there was still a lot to learn while we played. My force consisted of: Flagship: (101 pts) Victory II-Class Star Destroyer (85 pts) Admiral Chiraneau (10 pts) Flight Controllers […]

Imperial Assault tournament

Posted on May 24th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Today was the first Imperial Assault tournament at The Sentry Box. For some odd reason, perhaps due to the timing of the release for the game, we have a tournament kit out at about the same time as the Regionals kit. Even more perplexing, we have two Imperial Assault Regional events here in Calgary. Sadly […]

Learning about myself

Posted on May 19th, 2015 under , . Posted by

I like to play games. And one of the games that I really like to play is Hearthstone. Due to some memory issues of the iPad, I took an unwilling hiatus from the game but with the recent updates I have been able to play again. One of the reasons that I like the game […]

Posted on July 22nd, 2013 under , , , . Posted by

Thursday is coming soon so I need a new pNemo list to try out. This is largely similar to the one I used last week with some minor substitutions. Commander Adept Nemo Lancer (6pts) Avenger (9pts) Squire (2pts) Long Gunner Infantry (Leader and 5 Grunts) (6pts) Storm Tower (2pts) Stormblade Infantry (Leader and 5 Grunts) […]

Monsterpocalypse gaming

Posted on July 22nd, 2013 under , , , . Posted by

Paul and I met today at Myth Games to have a few games of Monsterpocalypse. This is the first time since the game came out initially that I have played it so I was a bit rusty. Making matters worse, Paul is a huge fan of the game and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the […]

War Room

Posted on July 21st, 2013 under , , , . Posted by

I have been spending a bit of time using the War Room application. It is Privateer Press’ tablet and mobile application for building armies, reading cards and also for tracking damage in games. It actually works rather well but there are a few issues with the application Con The app is written using the cross-platform […]

So it has been some time since an update so I am going to crunch a month’s worth of info into a single post. What it lacks in depth I hope it makes up for in… well something. Warmachine The game that I am playing most is still Warmachine. I have to qualify that somewhat […]
