Reviews and Previews: Jamaica/Photosynthesis/Adventure.exe/Cpt. Sonar/Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate/Rising Sun

I don’t think of them as victims, now that I am one.

Finally got all the investigators for Mansions of Madness painted. Good project to get done, expecially before moving on to the monsters, which are in smaller batches and are more interesting to paint. Painting women’s shoes is a… Read More

Wings of War Fest!!

The long wait was finally over and we eagerly decended onto a rather too picturesque cottage (for 7 geeks) in the rural Scottish Borders for our latest gaming weekend! A LONG night of good food, boozing and plenty… Read More
