Hey, all. I upgraded my Nexus 9 to Android Nougat. Everything went swimmingly, but upon the restart, I am receiving a Google Play Services keeps stopping. Is this normal for everyone else? Suggestions on a fix? I tried clearing the cache but that only afforded me a few seconds of peace before the same message popped up.

Hello, all. I had a question regarding equipment needed for playing any or most TTRPGs.

I went to my local hobby shop and the clerk was none too helpful.

Do I need any sort of timer? 3-minute hour glass? How many dice? How many sets of dice? I read that Cheesex make great dice and found that Amazon has many styles. Chessex Dice Polyhedral 7-Die Opaque Dice Set being the title, in many colors. How many sets would I need?

I know that not every RPG is the same, but surely they all must have some standard instrument, right? Thanks for any help!!

+Jan Franco​ most people use 16mm dice. The smaller ones are useful in games that have a dice pooling mechanic that leads to the 'bucket of dice' problem. For example tunnels and trolls. Although, rather than rolling 20 dice I think most sane people would roll five and simply multiply the result by four.

As far as the corners of the dice being rounded. As long as they appeal to you, feel good in your hand, and are accepted by the other players at the table, go for it. In the end, whatever you choose simply needs to work for you and your group.

Hello, all.

I have backed four TTRPGs on the Kickstarter.

Coriolis
Herald: Lovecraft and Tesla my personal favorite
Prince Valiant
The Magical Land of Yeld

My question, aside from the rule books which will come with the games, is there anything my friends and I need to play?

I heard dice are a big part, but not just regular dice. Anything else? Thanks!

Not normally. Just normal paper, typically.

Want to do something cool? Write a letter, an actual letter, to a friend, family member, or lover. Surprise them. Tell them how you feel.

Whoever is your candidate of choice, do not lie to yourself believing that they are saints. They are the nominees for the candidacy of the president of the U.S. People do not achieve that position by always being nice, friendly, and honorable. Both have done shady acts, betrayed friends, and paved their way to the White House with everyone they have destroyed. So, get them off the pedestal.

I saw an ad on Kickstarter for something called Bit box. These organizational boxes for board games. They took the guts of six games into one box. Is it just me, but I enjoy seeing the actual game box. The look of it, and the feel. I like seeing shelves filled with different boxes, sizes and colors.

Besides, even if you condensed all your games into two or three boxes, what will you do with their remaining boxes? Might as well, keep and use them.

I might be interested in this since I am the local PnP pastor and Kickstarter cultist (the two are quite complementary, rest assured)

If I could put all my PnP in this solution it would solve quite the issue for me.

That said not gonna happen. Postage for EU for one of those is 72$ (YIKEES!)

Hey, all. Thanks to everyone who gave me the great info regarding needed material for RPGs for new players like myself.

Which size is the preferred or "better" size for dice? Playing regular board games, I am used to the latter, but are the smaller-sized dice more common for RPGs? Obviously, with the smaller dice, you can roll many more in your hand, but the only game I know that commonly used a dozen or more dice, almost every roll, is Warhammer 40K.

I want to make sure I get all the info straight before the first RPG arrives from Kickstarter! Thanks, again!

I use to play d&d with a friend with horrible eyesight, he had huge die to compensate. Other than that case I like using a bunch of different sizes.

Today's movies reviews summed up neatly.

And the latest Star Wars movie still sucks. Using the Jedi mind trick with no training, get out of here with that nonsense

I saw this on another feed. Interesting concept. Would it be practical?

I called this store looking for this incredibly popular rifle. They had one left and were kind enough to place it on hold for me until the next day. When I came in, there were plenty of customers about and I was immediately greeted and helped. They have a whole other room next door with more goodies. The prices were great and the customer service was friendly and very helpful. I even got a discount for being a first time shopper there. I will be returning here for more purchases.
