WIfe, oldest daughter, and myself played a game of DungeonQuest for the first time today. It went effectively how I expected it to.

My starting corner of the tower ended up being completely composed of dead ends, so I had to back track and travel to another tower and try again. By this time though I only had two point of life left, and of course walk into a trapped room which was filled with snakes which was more than successful at taking those two life points. The Elf was the 'first' character to die, but strange enough everyone else was going to follow within a couple turns.

Daughter's character made some excellent headway through the catacombs finding a diamond worth 2000 gold. She did take a few point of damage from various fights and an explosion trap, but things were looking up for her when she emerged only two squares away from the dragon's horde, only to be trapped in a dead end with a demon that took her down.

Wife's first character died in the first room on the 2nd turn, but even on the first turn she got a Shade that followed her around and every turn she had to test or outright die immediately. The sorcerer the Wife picked was just doomed from the get go. We gave her an okay to play another character which actually made his way through the catacombs and popped out right next to the dragon's horde. First time she tried to loot she woke him up, so that didn't turn out too well, but she managed to loot a couple times in a room afterward successfully. By the time she was leaving, she was the only player left in the game, and she found a few corridors before eventually finding a bottomless pit. She managed to get over the pit thanks to the flying carpet she had to discard only to end up in a dead end and needing to back track over that same pit. Well Dwarves aren't the most agile of races, so Wife's character died falling into the darkness.

Overall, the game did go as I expected. It only has a 13-15% survival rate, but the trip is well worth it. It also plays quickly. Even with three players, we were burning through an entire round within a minute or two.

I wanted something to do today with the rain making it all dreary and grey. The universe decided that the something was going to be 'Going onto the roof to remove a bunch of leaves and pinecones that were clogging up the waterways and making the roof leak'. Not entertained universe, not at all.

Got a ton of L5R cards today. Looking forward to cracking some, but need to figure out if I want dragon or crane clans.

I'm relatively new to Dice Masters, my wife bought me the Yu Gi Oh starter a month or so ago, and I went ahead and got the new D&D set yesterday plus a few boosters. In one of the boosters I got a dragonkin that makes dragon's cheaper. Pretty amazing overall.

The question I ran into was simply, is the Blue Eyes White Dragon and Red Eyes Black Dragon still considered dragons even with the subtext of 'Blue Titan' rather than 'Apprentice Dragon' and whatnot like the D&D sets have?

I know the systems are all meant to be compatible with each other, and the Dragons have dragon right in their name, but wanted to make sure they would actually get the dragon boons from the dragonkin die I received.

Thanks in advance.

Chad, I should have the D&D starter and a few booster in the mail hopefully by the weekend and would love to play you if you want.

Just posting what I have managed to finish thus far for my Sorylians. I put in the elf (about 1.5" tall) for a scale reference. Not the best photos since I took the pic with my phone, but enough to see the general idea. This is pre dip and whatnot, so they will darken up and get more defined lines afterward.

Found the OOP big box version of Rune Wars at the local shop today fully accounted for for only $45.00. Snatched it up ASAP. May not get much game time, but I hope it gets at least a few plays a year.

Yu-Gi-OH!  - 
 
I will start off by saying, I am a rather big YuGiOh CCG fan, but the YGO DM set was one which I bought the starter and never expended on. The reason for it was pretty simple. The art work used on the cards was disappointing since it was (on average) bad screen caps from the TV show.

Thus far, every set but the YGO set has very crisp art direct from some form of source material, which makes the YGO set stand out that much more to me. With nearly all the cards as actual cards in the YGO games, I am left to wonder, could WizKids not get Bandai to buy off on using the art that is on the YGO cards themselves for some reason?

That's where I'd put my money. They probably couldn't get the card art and settled for screen caps. That and the required 'serial number' printed on the dice, could mean the YuGiOh set is just a one-off.

Played Dread tonight with a group of co-workers. It was an interesting night. The final pull was made between two player characters who betrayed each other at the very end when everyone could have survived. One of them took a heroic fail and lit off a fire bomb to kill them both as well as set off an anti-matter bomb within the hull of the space hulk. Rather epic ending to the one off game.

Well #TabletopDay was more or less a success. Got in a couple games of Love Letter, a game of Ascension, bought Epic Spell Wars as well as some card sleeves for my Love Letter set. Finished things off with a trip to 7-11 for the 'Bring Your Own Cup" day.

I decided recently to go ahead and get a copy of Heavy Gear Badlands Rally. The game can be a lot of fun, and I can tell that DP9 WANTS to keep expending on it with the variable water and road mentions made on the gears you can use. Since I have a TON of PRDF, I actually can fill in a decent number of the cards as proxies which isn't bad.

I think the worst part of the game comes from the map included in the box. The print job and paper the map is printed on is great, but because it remains folded in the box for who know how long, it doesn't take to staying unfolded on the table well at all. I went ahead and got a custom playmat for MTG made with the Rally map printed on it (won't be here for a while), to deal with that problem as well as increase the hex sizes slightly.

As long as at some point DP9 does continue to expand on the game, it could be a good way to keep introducing people to Heavy Gear, but if they let the game get stale... It won't be easy for me to get people to validate getting any miniatures that the box or myself aren't already supplying.

I wish I could afford to back this right now, some of those miniatures are just outright beautiful. Can tell though that the original idea is to make 'Not W40K' which is fine to me personally, but can see some of a of the more zealous fans of that 'other' company complain. Much like what happened with Mantic at first.
TitanforgeGames is raising funds for X-Terra Space Force vs Daemonic Kingdom - Tabletop Armies on Kickstarter! High Quality resin miniatures for gamers and collectors that love Science Fiction.

The "not-space-marines" look pretty good actually.

Sorylian Planetfall minis are coming along nicely. Heavy and light infantry units are both ready for sealing. All in about 5 hours of work for  9 bases. Will be moving onto my skiffs (lights first, then medium) later on. After that only my walkers remain until I decide to order my heavy helix.
