Played my second game of Scythe on Wednesday, and a battle of Middle-earth SBG yesterday. The games were very different in feeling (heavy wargame-themed Euro vs classic straight tabletop bash) but both immensely enjoyable. And I won both! 😀 Life and gaming are good!October 20, 2018 at 9:34 am #18639
Ahh, when the games go your way… 🙂October 30, 2018 at 8:00 am #18698
@uthoroc So sad for the missed opportunity 🙁 Had a bit of bad luck with the parking and lost quite a lot time…so this year I did not even see you in Essen. Maybe I will come around to play Runewars eventually…then I will challenge you for a match meeting outside of Essen/work 🙂 Did you find something interesting to play at Essen this year?October 30, 2018 at 9:08 am #18700
Yeah, I was wondering… too bad it didn’t work out this time! 🙂
I don’t get to play much at Essen… too much work. I picked up a few bits and pieces for painting, and played Azul once, this year’s Spiel des Jahres.November 2, 2018 at 10:04 pm #18719
I played two more battle of Middle-earth SBG last night: My Moria goblins led by the Balrog against a dwarven force from Erebor under Thror. My opponent is a veteran of the game and defeated me soundly twice – but it was still great fun, especially since I got to play on my Moria board for the first time. The game is just stunninlgy beautiful with painted figures and on a thematic board!November 2, 2018 at 10:12 pm #18720
Excellent photos, thanks Ralf!November 6, 2018 at 8:02 am #18722

Hey everyone, I got a good bit of gaming in over the last month.
I got about 4 games of Rum & Bones: Second Tide in with my daughter, which is always a good time. I finally got my hands on the original Rum & Bones conversion kit so I got to use all of my old factions with the new rules.
I got a game of Starship Samurai in, and it felt like a quicker, slightly lighter version of Blood Rage, but with a sci-fi meets Voltron feel. Pretty fun game.
I picked up the Hand of the King KS version of A Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures game, along with the Night’s Watch Starter set and some extra armies and got to get one game in before I left home for work. Lots of fun, I am looking forward to playing that one a lot more.
I got a solo play of Warhammer Quest Blackstone Fortress in as well and man did I enjoy it. Very cool push your luck adventure system.
I have been painting hot wheels like crazy and buying all sorts of custom tokens and terrain for Gaslands, and got to set up and play a few rounds. It is crazy how cool that game is, and how fun and addicting it is to buy and paint hot wheels now, lol.
I am supposed to play my first game of Kill Team tomorrow, so I will see how that goes.
As you can see, having never played or painted many miniatures games before I found The Esoteric Order of Gamers, all the gameplay videos I have watched over the last year has had a big influence on me.
