Going to a very distant land...


Wanted to plonk up a quick write up about our Adventure Time Munchkin on Sunday.

I've never actually played a Munchkin game before so was coming in fresh. Once we'd ironed out a couple of instances of misreading the rules in game one, game two seemed to go really nicely with a bit of ebb and flow and much dicking over of other players. I did like that the play time wasnt so short that you didnt feel particularly invested, but not so long that it dragged.
So a thumbs up for the game itself from a mechanics and play point of view.

As for the license aspect, i really dont think you could ask much more from an adventure time themed game, its absolutely choc-a-block full of references. I do particularly like that the character cards have the opposing gender versions like Fiona and Cake on the flip side.

I can see this being a game that id be more than happy to crack out in that gap between other 'bigger' games for quite some time.

4/5 Richs! (thanks again Dave!)

Wishing peeps a very Merry Christmas!

Just a quick post to say Merry Christmas to all the E.L.F guys and gals and our Welsh cousins! Thanks to everyone who made it to CrimboCon and I'm looking forward to getting even more gaming in next year. Now I'm off to put together some Blood Angel models to update my army.

Perusing the new BA codex.

I picked up my new book and have been looking at what I can out together as an army using just what I've got painted.

Left thinking WTF GW?

I'll keep it quick. Blood Angels Codex an miniatures up for preorder, hurray! No surprises with the codex price or limited edition (yawn!) but when it came to the models I was left scratching my head saying WTF GW? On the one hand you have the tactical squad which is absolutely jam-packed full of bits and all with blood drops etc, you really couldn't fit more parts on the sprue - 5/5 Daves for that one and the £26 doesn't seem too expensive given the niche nature of the product. Then they have the Sanguinary Priest... (pause for dramatic effect) £18 for one model with no options whose rules you don't know until you get the codex. Yeah I know I don't have to buy it and that I can get a discount etc, it's more the thinking behind the pricing of the products. Three huge rammed plastic frames for only £8 more? WTF GW?
