First of all, the thing about id Software’s New Doom — which shall henceforth and forever be portmanteau’d as Noom, because it makes me giggle — is that it was actually, against all odds, an incredible shooter.

If you're like me having several boxes of Zombicide, you might want to go to the next level and also have some nice/3D elements on the board. This was already possible by doing it yourself if you have creative hands, but easier and probably cheaper would be to have a look at this Kickstarter Campaign... Continue Reading →
Read on for the "Monthly Game Talks" post of June 2015. I believe that pretty clean and organized around the house. I don't like to have things laying around and make sure that each item has a spot to put it away. When you live in an apartment, you're kind of obliged to work that... Continue Reading →
Just want to share the videos published back in 2010 (yes 5 years already !) that gives you an insight about how miniatures are being created.
