More work with my Hirst Arts molds

I have found some time to work with my Hirst Arts molds and built a gun emplacement for my Dwarf army artillery teams.  This is the last of my craft store plaster of paris.  The bricks are a little chalky and soak up ALOT of paint.  I’m trying model railroad hydrocal next. The floor tiles […]

Finally! I win at Robinson Crusoe

Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island is one of the hardest solo experiences I have had yet.  It’s wonderful to find a game that beats you, but still makes you want to play again.  I spent a long time trying to make it through the first six adventures.  Number six was finally finished this […]

The new Pokemon GO game has been released in the U.S. and it seems to be a pretty fun idea.  The augmented reality game connects with a Google Maps like system (could very well be Maps itself) to give the player a real world space to explore and look for pokemon.  I can help but […]

Trying out Hirst Arts molds

My first time casting parts with the Hirst Arts castlemolds.

I […]

[…]

Last Night on Earth first impressions

We finally got around to playing the Last Night on Earth game. I’m not a big zombie fan, but I found that I liked the game. I’m a huge fan of Mansions of Madness; the one thing that causes trouble with Mansions is the long setup time. If you setup a card stack wrong or […]

Red Dragon Inn play test

For longer than I can recall I’ve wanted to play the Red Dragon Inn. For one reason or another it was on my short list, but something else always came out or was the new hotness and I never got around to buying a copy.  Also, I was skeptical about the theme.  My gaming group includes […]
