Snare Effect

I’ve been feeling extremely disconnected from my hobby of late. The impetus for that was certainly the unpleasant drama of the late-summer/early-fall, but the ennui’s continued to creep up on me. Advertisements

WaH: Twofer!

This is the (bereft of actual notes) battle report of a 2v2 game at the club’s Saturday Open Gaming. On Thursday, my wife and I popped over to the shop for a day of games. After the somewhat grim tidings earlier in the week, we wanted to till the community soil, so to speak. We’d […]

Try, and fail. Fail often. In fact, I write titles almost exclusive in puns, moderated only by my hopping on a fair number of those […]
