Neat Idea!

Hi guys, i was recently reading through someones project log and they mentioned they ahd made up some cards for warlord traits to help them remember, this struck me as a fantastic idea and figured someone out there must have had the same thought, after a little digging i found this:


Top stuff!

They do require a little bit of work to finish off, but ive got the tools to do so, so as im doing a batch of eldar ones and dark eldar combat drugs for myself, does anyone else have any requests for warlord trait sets?

I'll add the rules text, print em off and sleeve em up, let me know in the comments.

Racing tiny plastic cars!

So Wednesday night board games night at the Missing Geek brought a new game to the table for me, Formula D. Now I have had an on/off love affair with Formula 1 racing so went into this one with some trepidation. I have heard really good reviews from some of the podcasts I've listened to but could it live up to the hype?

Playing with the wife!

No calm down it's not a post about marital relations but a review of Hey, that's my Fish! I played against Amanda (one of the reasons I picked it up was that she really liked the look of it and that doesn't happen very often!). But the question is was it £10 well spent or another game I can't get the wife to play? 

Hey, that's my new game!

A quick game night review.

Hi guys just a quick one to update on the status of Games night at the local store. I failed in my documentation of last weeks games night but it was very fun and I managed to get The Resistance and Quarriors played (the store owner liked Quarriors so much he got some copies in to sell!). The Resistance was very fun and I'll do a full review after I next get it out, though I did get to play it at 5, 6, 7 & 8 players so got a decent feel for it. Quarriors was it's usual fun self even despite the most epic four player ever when nearly all the creatures had been bought form the wilds and every turn each players monsters were just slammed into oblivion.

This week saw a bit of Galaxy Trucker (I GM'ed to help the flow) and most of the players seemed to get into the spirit of it by the end so I was very happy. The next game was Muchkin which I'm growing to enjoy more as I become more familiar with the cards and care more about just messing with the other players than focusing on winning out right. Finally I played my first ever game of Pandemic which I'll also have to play again before fully reviewing but I will say that it was a lot quicker than I thought it was and is quite fun once you embrace to pure co-op nature of the players turns and focus on just beating those pesky diseases!

Oh and I picked up a copy of Hey, that's my Fish as Amanda had been eyeing it up and Nic had said how good it was on the iPad (it's only £10 but there is almost nothing in the box, it's going to win the award for most over packaged game ever!).

Playing 40k in the summer sun!

With the hottest weekend of the year coming up Will and I couldn't resist a BBQ and a few games of 40k! So it was Daemons vs Guard one game against Khorne (with me taking the Guard) and one against Nurgle (with Will marshalling the imperial troops). So who came out on top? And could the Guard avoid being ripped to bits by their owner?

The Blood God's Horde advance!

Playing games at The Missing Geek games night!

So having just discovered my new games store I ventured down to crack open my new copy of Smash Up in the hope there would be an opportunity to get a game in. So was it worth the trip, were there other people to play and if so was the game any good?
