Tabletop gaming


Making Jungle terrain

Sometimes what you need to finish a project is a game requiring you to complete. Long have the supplies for this scenery project languished until I finally decided to knock it out and get it finished.Literally over years I had picked up supplies as they were on sale and added to them gradually until I was certain I had enough.Basic materials I used were:Hot glue gunScissorsHot glue sticks, 12+Floral sheetingVarious plastic floral elementsLichenSpanish mossCDsGatorboardXacto knifeThe gatorboard, cut into long rectangular shapes. Ignore the wood glue, it was unnecessary. These will become bases for the taller flora like trees.CDs will be for the undergrowth basesFlora sheeting, like $16 at a craft store but you can get it on sale.Various plastic floraMoreI cut squares of the floral sheetingTo be big enough to cover the CDs. I got glued it to the CDs. Made sure to get all edges.I used scissors to trim to the edges.I pulled off the plastic flora from their mats and hit glued them to the base. Usually in the cente

D&D Tomb of Annihilation: This Pig Has a Deathwish

The following text is a fictional excerpt from the journal of Taman Brightwood; the character I play in my group’s journey through the Tomb of Annihilation D&D 5e adventure module from Wizards of the Coast. Tomb of Annihilation is a journey through the jungle region of Chult to discover the cause of the “death curse” plaguing the inhabitants of the land. The secret of the curse lies in the necromantic artifact known as the Soulmonger. Undead humanoids, dinosaurs, and undead dinosaurs aplenty cause interesting obstacles in this long winded trudge through the dangerous rainforest covered peninsula. 12th day of Kythorn in the year 1493 DR~ I am feeling incredibly lucky to be among the living. I accidentally ignited myself into a massive fireball which took out several small dinosaurs and a small portion of this cursed rainforest. My companions all seem to be keeping their distance for fear of being caught in the next magical catastrophe I may cause. Today is another balmy sweat coated slog.

Cabin-Con V: The Clever Subtitles are All Gone

Another Cabin-Con has come and gone. This is the fifth year where I head up to northern Wisconsin with some friends, sit down in a tiny cabin and play as many boardgames as possible until Sunday morning. As a group we all look forward to this weekend, and with a full complement of five players we were set to have a great weekend of gaming. In the past we have brought A LOT of games, and we still did this year, but we tried to limit it a LITTLE. Each person only brought 4-5 games. This way we would hopefully play a few games multiple times. Less time spent teaching, more time spent playing! And it kind of worked! Important note: I thought I took lots of pictures of everything we played. This was not the case. I took a few pictures and none of them are all that great. I have something to strive for next year I guess. Friday We arrived at the cabin late in the afternoon of Friday. It’s in northern Wisconsin, so it was cold. We unpacked, grabbed some drinks, and started picking games to shiver through as t
