At Origins 2016 I had a chance to catch up with my good friend Bryan Poe from Arcane Wonders.  We talked about Mage Wars Paladin and Siren.  Bryan may have leaked a few other things as well.

I do believe if you listen closely a couple of allusions can be heard.

Countdown to Gen Con T-7 and Counting Telestrations After Dark

 Gen Con 2015, Road to Gen Con 2015, USAopoly  Comments Off on Countdown to Gen Con T-7 and Counting Telestrations After Dark
Jul 222015

I’m actually pretty excited about this game, here is the manufacturer description.


Our favorite party game is all grown up. Telestrations After Dark is the adults only version of the #1 LOL party game Telestrations. Draw what you see then guess what you saw for hilarious, weird, irresponsible and just plain wrong outcomes. Telestrations After Dark is “adults only” miscommunication at its best!

Ages 17+ | 4-8 Players | MSRP: $29.95


With that said I’ve been playing Telestrations pretty much since it’s conception.  I can only imagine what an adult version means.  I’m sure it’s done with great taste and style.  I find this to be one of the most intriguing releases of the year.  I only hope that as a reinvented game it doesn’t stray from it’s origin too much!

While at Gen Con 2012 we visited with the WizKids  crew.  They were happy to pull out the Batman figs for us (and others around).  I like where the game seems to be going and with all of the super hero RPG’s. This set is going to be a great addition to the scene. Batman No Man’s Land is scheduled for a November release.

Let’s take a look at some of these guys.

Oh my!  It’s E.T.  I was shocked to see these guys.  I really don’t know more than what you see, but they are cool.

Tales from AnCon

 Gaming News  Comments Off on Tales from AnCon
Jun 262012

This was my first year at AnCon.  Keeping that in mind I scheduled events  with no expectations.  When I showed up in Hudson I was not overly surprised by the  number of people at the show.  What I was surprised at was running an event almost immediately.  As it turns out our event success rate was about as high as Origins.  Considering the difference in the size of the show I consider 5 new players  (the same number we had at Origins) huge success.

I have already emailed the players thanked them for playing, they made our experience a success.  I would also like to extend a thanks to the crew of MTSB gaming for running the con.

I had a blast at this show I even played some games.  I role played the part of Batman and made him say “yo”.  I wish I would have made him say “Semper Fi”.  Something makes me think Batman would be an awesome marine, even if he isn’t very gung-ho.   It was my first Mutants and Masterminds experience.  I am ready for more.   Batman and Green Arrow were well um almost juvenile in this adventure.  While Superman and Wonder Woman were a little more serious than we were.  Even if I had no idea I was butchering persona of Batman, I had fun.  I am even looking forward to collecting comics again sometime in the near future.

I even played a miniatures game, House Tek.  Well Table Tek really uses action figures.  That is right action figures.  It is a homebrew set of rules that uses everything in the house as terrain.  Every mini player should buy this game just to show their spouse there is a bright side to our little men.  All joking aside, it is a really good game.  I had a blast flying right down the middle on a suicide run, that didn’t even kill me right away.  I did kind of make my team mates disgruntled by my aggressive move.

I also wanted to take the time to thank Dave Cook for creating Heebie Jeebies.  It is a great new, not yet released, party game that makes people squirm.   Think about it, what gives you the heebie jeebies?  I am sure it is in the game.  If not visit the kickstarter and email Dave your idea.

We are already making plans for next year, you better be there.
