Raine is still seeking answers for his back problems, but we are still trucking along. We are hoping to post some RPG reviews this month, and possibly some of the games we’ve managed to fit quick games of in. While injuries can certainly prevent one from playing long games, the best part of our hobby is that so many games are available now that can be played anywhere and in very short bursts of time. We hope you all have a great weekend, and as always, happy gaming!
