MaricopaCon 2014 Report

  This weekend I attended our local gaming convention. MaricopaCon is funded through Kickstarter and this is its second year. Trask and I attended last year so I thought it would make a good warm-up for GenCon in two weeks. The convention runs Saturday and Sunday, but I only attended Saturday. The selection of games […]

Trask Versus Krav Maga

Of all the activities I considered for the “Versus” series, Krav Maga worried me the most. Melee combat( outside of RPG encounters) is not my area of expertise. In fact, outside of the occasional flirtation with karate that all teenage males go through, the fighting arts and I had a purely theoretical relationship.  That said, […]

Phoenix Comicon 2014 Exhibitors and Vendors with Links and Descriptions

Phoenix Comicon 2014 is next week and I decided to take a look at who was setting up at the show in the exhibitor/vendor area before I show up. Sadly, the Phoenix Comicon vendor list only lists names and booth numbers but no site links or descriptions. So I fixed it. After much effort, here […]

Trask Versus A Sensory Deprivation Tank

The film “Altered States”  altered my young mind and sent me on a lifelong quest. For those that missed out on this classic bit of  abnormal psychology ephemera, a scientist drops some quality ‘shrooms and spends a couple of hours in a sensory deprivation tank. Thereby devolving himself back to a monkey and seeing the […]

Gencon 2014--Items of Interest

Gencon 2014–Items of Interest

This post is all about the odd and wonderful things I ran across at Gencon 2014, presented in no particular order.  Our Gencon 2014 adventure begins at the gametimber.com booth where my salivary glands went into overdrive for these amazing card deck boxes.   Well made, beautiful and a steal at $35.00 each. I may […]

Gen Con 2014 Games Played

Gencon 2014 enters history and I once again survived four marathon days of gaming glory.  This report will focus on the games I played and some the trip itself. Future entries will focus on the vendors and products. After an inauspicious start to the trip, as seen in the picture below of my supposed seat, […]

Amethyst Destiny (Fate Core Edition) Released

Which side will you choose? Which weapons will you wield? Earth is torn between the order of science and the chaos of fantasy. These two worlds cannot mix. Venture into lands once claimed by skyscrapers and factories, now overrun by elves, goblins, and dragons. Choose your path and commit to the quest. Monsters will hunt […]

Dungeons and Dragons 5E--The Tyranny of the Expected

Dungeons and Dragons 5E–The Tyranny of the Expected

“Dungeons and Dragons” released its base game last week as well as a free PDF set of rules to great fanfare.  I avoided the beta test development phase, so I went into the release with minimal knowledge of 5e.  Given my distinct loathing for 4th Edition and the wise public beta period, I expected much […]

Trask Versus An Atlatl

Trask Versus An Atlatl

Atlatls or throwing sticks were not on my original “Versus” blog post list, but a “World Atlatl Day” event popped up near my house and I could not resist.   Atlatls are sticks with notches cut in them to hold a dart  (I always assumed it was a spear, but everyone continuously referred to the sharp, […]

Phoenix Comicon 2014 Gaming Report

Pathfinder. I knew going in that Pathfinder overwhelming scheduled more games than any other RPG, so the many Pathfinder tables did not surprise me at all. That said, there was a smattering of other board and card games, including the surprisingly good “Lords of Waterdeep” and a fairly slick, but not my taste online CCG […]
