star pirates!

Online game, browser based, so nothing to download. It’s fun. And kinda addictive, but not in a bad way. And easy to play is small break-time sized increments. Star Pirates

inexpensive rocketmen and pirates

Rocketmen Battle of Titans, 5 booster boxes (of 36 packs each), for $15.95 The same store, Dave & Adam’s Card World, has some pretty good prices on Pirates cards, too.

my weekend

Didn’t do much this weekend. Friday I went over to Glenda & Dean’s and had a burger at Steak & Shake (and a shake as well), played a couple of games of Star Wars Miniatures. I won one, Dean won the other. Saturday didn’t do much, Jordan was over with a friend. They played Xbox [Continue]

well poo

My last batch of molds did not come out so good. The mixture was too thick (too much catalyst) and not only did it not self level (so the back side of the molds are not flat) there are several air bubbles around the masters so that when I cast with plaster the bubbles fill [Continue]

Stopped by the Dollar Tree to get some more supplies. Man, I love that there is one right around the corner from the office. Got a four pack of wooden spoons, two clear plastic measuring cups (one quart size), some more super glue, some tape, a three pack of plastic cups (to use as dipper [Continue]

more terrain building stuff

Made my first form for making plaster cast pieces. Finally used some of the GE Silicone I got. As far as I can tell it seems to be ok after sitting around for a year. Still needs to dry for a bit longer, I think. This mold will let me cast two middle eastern buildings, [Continue]

wow aar

Played Wings of War again last night. This was the third time I think we’ve played. It was me, Dean, Glenda, and John. This was Glenda’s first time. Everyone had their own biplane miniature. Glenda and John were Germans, Dean and I were Americans. It was pretty fun. One game Dean got shot at almost [Continue]

wow manuever decks

Found this on the Wings of War forum, and thought it might be useful to know, so I shamelessly copied the whole thing: “I ran across this post in another thread, and it got me to wondering about what the differnces are between the maneuver decks in WoW. So I decided to take a closer [Continue]

game night

Played our second game of Axis & Allies: War at Sea. Went pretty good. It was me, Dean, and John. Dean was Japan, John was the UK, and I was the US. The damn Japs won. Their two battleships went unsunk and kicked much, much ass. My carriers bit, hard. Oh well, it was pretty [Continue]

qotd

Saw this on a discussion of wargaming strategies. One of the guys said something like “I would hope that player would not < do something annoying >” to which another gamer said: “Hope is not a strategy…” Seems like it would also apply to Obama’s campaign, too.

fighting in the middle east

The recent-ish release of the North Africa booster pack for Axis & Allies miniatures inspired me build some little middle eastern style buildings and ruins to fight in. I got some cork squares at the Dollar Tree (four four by four pieces for a buck) and cut them into shape. Then trimmed the edges with [Continue]
