Stingray, Stingray Dududududu!

31 Comments

Everyone loves some Stingray…and so when we saw that there was a game based around Stingray we had to go and find out more about it.

One of the cool things about this show is that it seems like everyone is drawing on some of those awesome retro shows for their inspiration when delving into their tabletop games.

It’s very neat seeing how inventive everyone is!

Raiders Of The Crusader Keep! University Of Edinburgh

15 Comments

We get to chat with the team behind a really fascinating game which is as much for fun as it is for education. Created alongside the University Of Edinburgh the game is focused around an assault on a Templar Keep.

The interiors for this build are fascinating and I think that anyone who enjoys their Crusades is going to be loving this.

Another evnet full of content? I’ve been busy for a few weekends now and don’t have a full weekend free until the bank holiday. Normally I’d say you don’t make enough content but I’ve many hours of backlog and now this? I’m looking forward to it but I suspect I’m going to need the 4 day weekend to finally catch up on everything.

I’d love to hear some from TTCombat, I know they announced Battle Earth for dropfleet commander, but I’d like to hear more what they are doing with Dropzone Commander.

Just an idea not sure anyone will see this, but for events like this could all the video content be put into a playlist or something either here or youtube? often I play the videos whilst doing something else so it is nice to just have them all play one after the other rather than having to keep change blog post. Just an idea.
