There Be Painted Pirates In The Cases!

10 Comments

It's damn near impossible to not get sucked right into Rum & Bones once you see the lovely painted minis in the cases. They make it plenty easy for you to take the plunge into the game too, as they brought plentt of stock. Whether you need the base game or expansions, or all of it, for that matter- they have you covered.

There's nothing better than exploring the cases full of studio painted minis from CMON. The Wrath of Kings minis are looking amazing and tomorrow we'll be attending a seminar on Dark Age and Wrath of Kings- which I've been told, "you'll want to be at that one." Hmmmmmm. That sounds very promising. What will it mean?

Song Of Ice & Fire Panel Got Our Attention

15 Comments

So we just got out of the panel for A Song of Ice & Fire and I'm pumped! They repeated over and over..."if it's in the books, then it can make its way into the game." Oh the possibilities! I was most impressed with how vocal they are with really wanting to support the local game stores and encourage organized play.
Will there be dragons? "If it occurs in the books, it can appear in the game." Oh boy, am I looking forward to this one.
We'll be getting a demo of this over the weekend, so much more to come.

Dark Age Immortals Kicks Off With Ceremonial Stamping

How better to kick off the start of the Dark Age Immortals tournament than by a ceremonial stamp to the Bludgelt, the currency required for entrance in the tournament. With a hammer and anvil, Bryan stamped a skull into each Bludgelt and participants recieved an Immortals objective marker.

Try Your Hand At Creative Assembly

5 Comments

If you're looking for something fun (other than gaming), you can have a seat at the tables of bits and pieces and have a go at some creative assembly. The completed bits are proudly displayed in the Crystal Brush cases, and there is some seriously cool stuff. The giant dinosaur is by far my favorite.

I couldn't resist the chance to play some Zombicide Black Plague. We were doing a pretty fair job dealing with all the zombies- except for the damn Abomination! Tried as we might, we just couldn't seem to come up with the necessary items to take him out- but we had a great time trying.

Goodbye From CMON EXPO 2017!

7 Comments

It has been a whirlwind three days of gaming goodness from the fine folks at CMON. We saw a lot of awesome games and incredible people. We want to start by thanking our hosts CMON, their staff were just wonderful. Some very exciting news came from the panels. We tried to play games where we could, but unfortunately, we could not get to all of them. Hopefully, we can do some reviews and Let's Play in the future for any we did miss. We hope you enjoyed our coverage and liked the live streams. We will see you at the next stop on the BoW World Tour 2017!

Considering the Godfather book was so short amazing that there is so much material. If you’ve not read it, I recommend it

Yes it was. It was well done so much that it the time we did a reading of it in school and lessons and assignments around the book.

I believe today so many people would have their hair on fire over the themes in the book that the poor instructor would first be fired, then hung and finally burned at the stake for using the book in class.

Excellent book, but the game seems muddled. It talks about the ‘fàmilies’ in the 50s but the figures are all 20s/30s. Does the game consist of lots of flashbacks?

So, ice and fire KS for the US only then? As they do not distribute outside of the US and it’s not going to to be a here is everything campaign, we will be stuck with just the limited units available during the KS. In the 45 mins of the video it’s gone from wow, going to get a ton of this, to a nah, what’s the point.
