Zatcaskagoon Miniatures caught my eye when I was scrolling through my feed on Facebook, which incidentally is the predominant way in which I find content. I was blown away by the intricacy and attention to detail that accompanied his miniature painting. I knew I had to reach out to Kendon and ask him if he wanted to have a spotlight on this site!
love Wizards of the Coast’s Magic: the Gathering. I mean, I have multiple articles on it. I run Commander tournaments at my local game store. I have spent a lot of money building decks over the years.
With that being said, there are some cards out there that make me want to literally throw something. So here is my list of My Top 5: Terribad Cards in Magic.
I first picked up Marath’s Will of the Wild deck back when the 2013 Commander decks came out. When I first created the deck, I decided to only use cards from the official Wizards of the Coast Commander decks card pool. After playing with that version of the deck for about a year, I decided I wanted to actually construct a Marath deck with little limitations.
There’s an array of different roleplaying games out there to choose from, especially since tabletop gaming is “in” right now. I will say, it is a good time to be a nerd! Because these games are getting in the spotlight more and more, we are starting to see diverse communities spring up around them.
So I pose this question to you: What is your favorite class in a roleplaying game?
I felt like a kid opening a long awaited Christmas gift when I picked up Dreamscape Laruna. When I scrolled through the pages, I felt like I had accomplished a great task. I am the only one I know to have the book around my area, so I felt like I was exploring unexplored territory. After all, this game was a brand spanking new system and clearly one that had a lot of talent behind it.
When it comes to Commander, I consider myself a casual player all though I am sure some of the people in my playgroup would disagree. I pride myself on my […]
This time on In the Spotlight we talk with Ogre Foot Ltd. and their game: Gods of Tyn Harra, a multiplayer deck building game!
There comes a time when you stumble upon a card and you realize that it is now your life’s goal to make a deck around that card. I kind of slacked when it came to Khaladesh spoilers, so when I found Sram I was blown away. I’ve created numerous mono-white decks and they have always felt like they were lacking something: card draw.
Okay, so we’ve established that steampunk is something close to my heart. In addition to loving steampunk, I am a HUGE fan of Marvel’s Thor, which stemmed from my fondness of Norse mythology. Rhune takes steampunk and fuses it with Norse mythological flavoring, creating a new genre: Stormpunk. That’s right when you enter the realms of Rhune, you are playing in a setting of dwarves, aelves, giants, mechanical monstrosities, and gods!
Cool Mini or Not’s Wrath of Kings is not only visually stimulating, it’s mentally stimulating. There is one word that encompasses everything Wrath of Kings represents: Intuitive. For those of you who are veterans of the tabletop wargames field, this game will seem familiar yet different in comparison to games you’ve played.
When I first met Derek, he was hard at work with painting some minis he had just picked up. I have always been drawn to the forces of chaos when […]
Golems are iconic creatures in fantasy settings. They are often created as protectors that accompany magi on their journeys. There are some that want a formidable foe for their opponents […]
In my many years of playing roleplaying games, there have been recurring problems that have arose from players. I have found myself stressing the importance of what not to do in order to enhance what to do. And I think the approach of teaching people things based on personal experience is really helping to increase the enjoyment that people take away from gaming.
There are times when I am really tired but am inspired to create. There was one particular night when I had a friend over and we were creating some art and I sketched up a strange creature concept: A Goblin mixed with the chaos of a Demon.
Right away I was taken back to my days of sitting in the front of my old television playing games on my Nintendo. Eroth Productions had successfully created a game with the feeling of exploring dungeons in a classic Nintendo-like setting. The nostalgia was taking over, and I became overly excited to play the game; I could hear its dungeons beckoning me to enter.
Fusion concepts are the future and I am glad to see they are starting to take off! And I am particularly excited that this one combines two things that go together like peanut butter and jelly… or coffee and board games!
