MaricopaCon 2014 Report

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 […]

Once again here is my all-in-one list of Gencon 2014 vendor and exhibitors with short descriptions. If there are any updates, errors or improvements you would like to see, please drop me a comment and I will take a look.   I culled this list from the official Gencon 2014 map of the exhibit/vendor hall.

Trask Versus Krav Maga

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, […]

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 […]

Phoenix Comicon 2014 Exhibitors and Vendors with Links and Descriptions

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 […]

Repeating D&D History

A multitude of recent announcements from Wizards of The Coast has altered the landscape for the immediate future. The first involved the release schedule of D&D Next (or is it 5E, I’ve honestly lost track) while the other heralded an eventual Open Gaming License. The staggered release of the upcoming core books was a surprising […]

Popular Tabletop Games

Hence, these table games are played for competition and for spending leisure time. In general, tabletop games are classified as the following; […]
