Scene-A-Rama – Is It Good for Wargaming?

Posted on April 17th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

My wife was at Hobby Lobby the other day and noticed these Scene-A-Rama buildings on clearance. Knowing about my pervasive wargaming hobby, she snagged a few of them for a whopping $1.12 apiece, including a volcano, medieval castle, and Greek temple. W…

Not a ton of new games this month. New board games, from best to worse: Barenpark – I immensely enjoyed this Tetris-style tile laying game, even with the flimsy theme of building a bear-only zoo. Unfortunately, due to Asmodee’s acquisition of Mayfair, this game will likely be difficult to obtain in the US for the […]
