The first Board Game Club session is in the books! The other night, three of us talked about Room 25‘s latest expansion, Escape Room. Just like a book club, we pick a game and then talk about how it made us feel, what we liked & didn’t like, etc.
Hit the jump to let the discussion begin!

Last Night on Earth is of the first modern board games I ever owned/received/played/bought. Flying Frog Productions has released many expansions as well as a standalone expansion. That is what I have here. It needed a better way to store all its plastic, cardboard, and tiles and I believe I have found a good enough solution. It suits my needs…as long as I hold it a certain way.
See what I mean in the video after the jump!

XIA: Legends of a Drift System is a sandbox space game. Do whatever you want in space and there are a lot of components. Embers of a Forsaken Star is the latest expansion and it has its fair share of pieces.

Fantasy Flight Games has reminded me why I don’t buy inserts for my board games. Making custom ones with foamcore is a different story but that takes so much time to do. But here comes Zenbins with a really neat, easy to use insert to present everything perfectly and fights nicely and now it is ruined!
Now it is all for loss, hit the jump to see why.

Recently, at FIJ 2017 in Cannes, Libellud showed off the new version, and here’s what we know.

After painting a bunch of Stormtroopers, Imperial Officers, and Rebel Troopers, I was looking for something a little more laid back. Enter this bounty hunter who is mechanical. Easy paint, but fun and rewarding to add detail!
Run from IG-88!

I’ve recently started to paint some of my miniatures. Half the fun is painting them and the other half is seeing them on the table. You might get to play the games with me but I can make sure you can see them!
The Stormtroopers for Imperial Assault were among the first minis I painted. This expansion pack leader is probably among my favorites and he came out really well. So hit the jump and check him out in 360 degrees and his description.
Behold, Kayn Somos! Continue reading Painted Mini’s: Kayn Somos, Trooper Commander
