Posted on April 6th, 2018 under . Posted by

Another Thursday, another great turnout for some Malifaux. I was able to bring my latest Lynch list to the table against Mike, who fielded a Perdita crew that I had not faced yet. I have been pretty intrigued by Perdita as a potential master. I’d really like to field a shooty list and she seems…

Gaming Furniture

Posted on March 30th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

In the last years, it seems that (board)gaming furniture has become de rigeur for the urbane and affluent nerd, with companies such as geeknson offering bespoke gaming tables and other appurtenances. Now, I’m not sure how urbane I am, but I…

Let’s get one thing straight: I don’t like sports. I don’t like to do sports, I don’t like to watch sports and I don’t like to listen to people talk about sports. I don’t even like sportswear. So it was…
