Phoenix Comicon 2011-- A Gamer's Perspective

Phoenix Comicon 2011– A Gamer’s Perspective

Phoenix Comicon 2011 was my first comic book convention, so I write this post with no real baseline for comparison.  I started in the exhibitors area, just to check out what was for sale because my wallet seems to open more freely at conventions.

Tankfest 2009–A Tank Convention

I had to post about this because it is just interesting and generally makes me sad I no longer live in the UK. The Tank Museum in Dorset, UK is doing a weekend event of historical education, reenactments  and most importantly, driving around in World War II era tanks. I am not biggest fan of […]

Gamer Tools Review: The ZÜCA Wheeled Bag

The ZÜCA is quite possibly the world’s best gamer bag for convention goers. Trask has been asking me to do a review for a while. He even featured it in this year’s ‘10 Christmas Gift Ideas for a Role-Playing Gamer‘ due to all my man-love speech. So, without further ado, I will begin… Trask and […]

2009: A Year of Fear and Wonder in Gaming

I know I am a bit early for the “exciting things in the new year” posts that appear around December 29th every year on most blogs.   I am posting early to beat the year end rush. 2008 proved eventful to the gaming community.
