Today is International Tabletop Day.

International Tabletop Day is a celebration for all the fans of tabletop gaming. A single day where the whole world is brought together in a common purpose of spending time together and having fun.

While I have no plans to run any games today at the local gaming store or the comic shoppes that I frequent, I would like to encourage all my gamer friends to get out there today and run and/or play some tabletop games, be they board games, miniature games, or roleplaying games.

Have a great gaming day today! 🙂

Friday Gaming Session, Sort of March 2, 2018

I’m gaming tonight, sort of.

The Friday gaming group is taking some time off to deal with the death of DavidM, but I spoke to Kathy today and she said that she and Ellie would like to come over this evening and do some gaming. Ellie needs a distraction from DavidM’s death, and gaming is a good “therapy” for all concerned.

Since I know that Ellie’s been jonesing to play some Torg Eternity RPG, that’s what we’ll probably do a bit of this evening. I’ve got a couple of scenario basics that I want to test out and see whether the premises that I’ve come up with work, but we’ll see what happens tonight.

In any event, I’m looking forward to seeing them, and hopefully doing some gaming with them this evening.

Getting ready for an evening of gaming with the Wednesday night group.

This will be the first time that the Wednesday night players have gamed in some time (since the middle of June, in fact), as they took the summer off. I don’t know what we’ll be playing this evening, but I suspect they’ll want to play a board game of some sort, rather than rpgs, so as to transition back into gaming somewhat. I do know that Donna has expressed an interest in seeing some of The Dark Eye RPG gaming materials, so that will likely happen after gaming tonight.

Looking forward to playing with the Wednesday nighters once again! 🙂

In the meantime, I need to make some supper.

Have a good evening, folks.

Getting ready for an evening of gaming with the Friday night group.

Not sure what the players want to do yet tonight, but there’s a strong interest in the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG campaign, as they were having quite a bit of fun with it. So I’ve spent a bit of the afternoon refreshing myself on the system and the campaign scenario they’re playing to this point.

Looking forward to whatever the players decide to play this evening.

In the meantime, I need to figure out what to do for supper tonight.

Have a good evening, folks.

GenCon Blog Posts August 25, 2017

Folks may have noticed that I’ve not started blogging up my experiences at GenCon 2017 yet this year.

The reason for this is very simple: I didn’t really write any notes about the convention while there, instead tweeting my experiences going to the convention, with various photos of my time there. I had planned to post up the GenCon 2017 blog entries here after I got back from the convention, but the injury I sustained while in Indianapolis has caused some changes in plans since I got back, but be reassured that those blog entries will go up.

All I wanted to say about that in this blog entry.

Looking at the calendar, I see that today is the 10th of August.

This means that GenCon Indy starts exactly a week today.

Eeek! Where has the time gone? I’ve got so much to do to get ready for the convention before flying down to Indy on Tuesday. Eeek!

Replacement Parts for The Princes of Machu Picchu August 1, 2017

For those who recall the “water on the gaming table, map, and components” business that happened with a game of The Princes of Machu Picchu the other week (and here’s the blog entry for those that don’t), I have good news today.

The folks at Rio Grande Games were kind enough to ship me the replacement parts for the game, though it cost me a pretty penny (some $30 Canadian) and they arrived in the snail mail today! 🙂

I’m content, but tired.

Just spoke to SteveR this morning, and he’s decided that he’s coming out to my place for the afternoon.

We’re not going to do any roleplaying today, but we are going to do some board gaming today. Not sure what yet, but we’ll see when he gets here.

In the meantime, I need to shower. And hopefully work some of the kinks out of my back and shoulder.

Another Friday, another gaming night. 🙂

I spoke to the Friday night players last night, and they said they really want to play a game this evening, but they weren’t picky as to whether it would be a roleplaying game or a board game. Since I’m feeling all right, except for the arm and shoulder business and some pains and problems with my feet, I told them this morning in e-mail that gaming was on for tonight.

I’m not sure whether I want to play a board game or do some roleplaying game stuff tonight, but I’ll see what the players’ tastes are for the evening when they arrive, and we’ll roll from there.

In the meantime, I need to make some supper. Not sure what to eat either, but it will involve some pasta as the grain.

Have a good night, folks.

SteveR has decided to pop over for the afternoon, as he wants to play some sort of game today.

I’m not sure what I’m in the mood for, whether I want to play a board game or perhaps roleplaying of some sort. We’ll see what happens when he gets here today.

Just going to be nice to get to play some sort of game(s) today.
