Warhammer: TOTAL WAR!!!

by SandWyrm

This looks like it could be awesome, but I'm still fuming from how bad the last 2 TW games that I bought sucked. So I'm not sure what to think about another game from the same group.

World of Warships: IN SPAAAAAAAACE!

by SandWyrm

Overdone (and late) April Fools joke, or a new feature? I'm really not sure, but you get to fly the Space Battleship Yamato, so it's all good. :)

Eye Of The Beholder

These were at the container store today. Trendy storage containers? Or 15mm urban terrain?

Sinclair Games in Carmel, IN

By CaulynDarr

Pay no attention to the man in the reflection, or the Arby's.
Just wanted to let all the Hamilton County gamers know we finally got a game store north of 465. They've got the best selection of GW and Warmachine in the area; plus they look to rival G2D4 in Flames of War stock.

3D Printing: Better Than Plastic?

by SandWyrm

You know, in all my posts about 3D printing, I've never really considered the notion that it might actually displace injection-molded plastics because of superior detail resolution. But then I saw this print on Twitter today. Read all about it here.

I drink the tears of Phantom players

By CaulynDarr

So this happened.  Phantoms now have to de-cloak at the start of the activation phase instead of when they reveal their maneuver dial.  This is just enough of a change to keep Phantoms from running the table against everything but PS 10 Han.

Something had to happen.  Phantoms where determining the entire meta of the game.  You had to bid pilot skill and take turrets if you wanted a chance to beat them in a tournament.  The phantom and the counter-Phantom builds where pushing too many other ships out of being viable options.  That should change now.

The other types of Phantoms may also see more play now that Whisper isn't such a obvious choice anymore.

Isn't it great when a game's designers see a problem and fix it.

Book: Things We Think About Games

by SandWyrm

Some of the commenters in my last post were quite taken with the quote in the picture I chose, and wondered where it came from. Well, this is the book, written by a couple of well-known game design veterans (with a lot more contributing).

I've gone through it and lifted five more choice quotes, and if you find those interesting too, you should definitely buy the book, because there's loads more wisdom to be found inside. It can be had as a PDF for as little as $8.

Today's Bit Of Truth

by SandWyrm

As the inevitable conflicts rage over what the 'true' way of 40K is these days, I would remind TOs of this simple truth. The problem isn't the players who aren't having fun. The problem is the game itself, and how the leaders of the 40K community are responding to its many problems.

Don't evade, deny, and cajole. Step up and unite instead! Form a counsel, decide what's kosher, and get every event out there on the same page. Otherwise your efforts will only further fragment what's left of the community, and keep your potential attendees in their basements.
