Thoughts and Ramblings

It's beginning to seem every week brings news of yet another successfully funded Kickstarter gaming project going down in flames. This time out it's Torn Armor. I'll begin by prefacing this post by once again pointing out when you see some mention of a Kickstarter project on TGG it's because I find …
While Games Workshop is trying to put a brave face on the 10.4% drop in revenue over a six month period ending December 1st, 2013 - compared to that same time period in 2012 - investors are understandably concerned as GW stock value has dropped by 24% as well. Games Workshop is indicating the loss o…
Back in August of 2012 I wrote an op-ed about Valley Games looking to reprint the Avalon Hill classic Up Front! and why I didn’t believe we would actually see the reprint come to fruition. The post garnered a few comments here but really riled up some folks over on the forums at ComsimWorld. Since I…
Computer games are becoming an increasing central part of our lives.  Today, it is estimated that people around the world spend 3 billion hours a week playing online games.  Many people might think that this is a cause of problems and that this time could be much better spent in other ways.  However…
Well, yet another story of a successfully funded Kickstarter gaming project crashing and burning. Yesterday Erik Chevalier of The Forking Path announced he has cancelled the project to produce The Doom That Came to Atlantic City which had completed with over 1200 backers and $122,000 in funding. You…
Following years of growing concern over the exact role suspected child molester Ed Kramer had within the company, principles involved with Dragon*Con have announced Kramer has been bought out and Dragon*Con/ACE Inc. is no more. In it's place Dragon Con Inc. has been formed as the entity controlling …
I thought I’d take a break from game reviews and share some thoughts on tools that I use to enhance my gaming experience. No, I’m not talking about screwdrivers or hammers but rather a few computer, smartphone and tablet tools I’ve found very useful.No doubt it you search the internet or your ph…
Folks know I'm not the biggest proponent of Kickstarter, although I have become friendlier to the crowd funding platform as time has passed, because I'm still somewhat leery about the vast number of gaming related projects which are streaming onto the site; I'll have a featured article this weekend …

Now you are there, beneath the waving banners - a leader of knights and bowmen eager for battle and glory in the glittering Age of Chivalry.…
Many hobbyists will recognize GMT Games for their longstanding and popular Great Battles of History (GBoH) tactical series, which was later supplemented by a more streamlined module called SimpleGBoH. This “Simple” retooling was more like a “Medium” restructuring of the system, with many players fin…
I’ll begin by prefacing I’ve always felt Games Workshop produces excellent miniatures and have solid intellectual properties in Warhammer and Warhammer 40k (how many sorry attempts at 40k clones have we seen over the years people?) while, at the same time, I’ve had major issues with plenty of other …
As I got word back in late November about the demise of the latest attempt to get a large sized gaming only convention off the ground (Vul-Con this time around) I got to thinking what it might take to lay the groundwork for creating what could eventually become a “destination” sort of convention alo…
I have to say Elliott, our high school friends, and I used to play the hell out of Strat-O-Matic. It didn't matter if it was baseball (my fav), football, or hockey we had loads of card sets and we'd head over to the Norridge, IL Gamer's Paradise - a local store that used to be a great source for gam…
As you may have heard on our latest show, Elliott and I shared some ideas for last minute gift ideas for the gamers in your life. So without further ado here's a selection of titles we feel nearly any gamer of various stripes should have on their shelf (or in their stocking)...Small Wo…
As reported during my interview with Andrew Hackard and Phil Reed of Steve Jackson Games, SJG is going to produce Car Wars next year. This was certainly a great thing to hear as I can say the title was one of the games Elliott, our friends, and I played quite a bit in high school. No word specifical…
