Treasure Markers - something to fight for! // Znaczniki celów bitewnych

Battle/Target markers for miniature wargaming. They will be used mostly in Dragon Rampant and Advanced Song of Blade and Heroes. Coblestone bases were made by me and bits were produced by various miniature manufactures. As long as I remember these were Ristul's Extraordinary Market, Fireforge Games, minimonsters.eu, Games Workshop and  Perry Miniatures.Znaczniki celów stworzone do wykorzystania w kilku grach. Myślę że dobrze sprawdzą się w czasie potyczek w Dragon Rampant, Advanced Song of Blade and Heroes oraz okazjonalnie do gier planszowych i D&D.

Game Plan 2019 - Part Two

The other week I went over some of my hobby goals for the next year in Game Plan 2019. Since then I have spent much time considering how the heck I'm going to do any of it, let alone all of it!?GAMESWELL! I think I've more or less come up with a plan to make sure we get through most of our Family 10x10 Board Game Challenge AND I get to play the additional games I have in my personal Challenge.The 10x10 challenge requires playing at least 100 games in the year. Which is about two a week - a little less than two per week, actually. So I figured if we have two designated "Family Game Times" set aside each week, we should easily get through all those games. So we've kind of set aside Friday and Sunday evenings... Now not EVERY Friday and Sunday evening are going to work. This week, Amanda is at a First Aid class this Friday evening.... On Sunday I'll be playing a game of 40K with the fellow I'm going to be teaming up with for the Battle for the Abyss - Team Apocalypse Event.... Other Sundays we have tickets to Pe

Blitz Bowl - Four Player Crossroads

I completed a custom four player "Crossroads" pitch for Blitz Bowl games before the holidays.  It was made from some felt from JOANN Fabrics and Crafts and a black Sharpie pen, (I tried to use a white fabric marker, but it went dry much too easily and had to switch to the Sharpie early on).Over the holidays we played a few four-player games on it and have had a great time each time we have played.The rules are a little different - the first team to score ten points wins....  You get five points for a touchdown and one point for causing an injury.  We use two balls at all times and the only rule we changed (in addition to no cards) is that if a player starts your turn prone, you can attempt to injure that player by using a Block action; if you roll a result that forces an armor roll, there is a -2 penalty to the armor roll. It is a benefit to crunchy teams....In the center, we placed a single statue of Nuffle, which also throws out the balls at the start of the game (and whenever a touchdown is
