Other Interesting Articles And Finds

What We’re Playing

  • Played some Descent this week and really enjoyed it!
  • A lot of miniature work has happened this weekend : we have done a lot of painting and basing of unfinished models from before/during the move, and then we got Cryx and Khador to the table for a quick battle. Khador got the best of Cryx when Deneghra moved in for a ballsy (read: risky) move and left herself too exposed.

  • We tried out two games from Z-MAN Games this week. We tried Fairy Tale, a drafting card game that was pretty fun, and also Grimoire.

A heads up that there will be drastically less/zero content shared from December 24th-January 5th to allow our writers time with their families to enjoy the holidays. There will likely be updates to the Instagram page sharing geeky goodness and any gaming adventures that may occur during that time! There will not be a Quick News next week.

Until next year, happy gaming, and happy holidays!
