More on Simple Games

Writing and releasing Insurgent Earth Operation String Bet took the lion’s share of my time and energy the last month-plus, which meant a return to simple games for weekly sessions and a Thanksgiving battle with my grand kids. And a perfect reminder of why ‘beer-n-pretzel’ games are more necessary than ever these days. WHEN FRIENDS […]

In the shadow of Balaur Mormant

The start of a NIGHTWATCH adventure I have the extreme good fortune to game on a regular basis. The Cape Cod Wargame Commission meets (more or less) weekly to indulge in food, drink, table top wargames, RPGs, and the occasional board game. (with miniatures, of course) If I remember correctly, we’re in our 7th year. […]

Mork Borg Minis

If someone dropped two tabs of ‘Snoopy with Sunglasses’ to binge-watch Lord of the Rings (extended version) while listening to Swedish Death Metal, you’d get Mork Borg, the role playing game. That’s what it feels like to me, anyway. Like kids in a candy shop, our game group bounces around and wants to try new […]

The Move is done

Almost, anyway. August was a strange month, full of changes. I closed my glass shop, inventoried and sold the contents, took down the sign, shut down my studio website. 36 years cutting glass, 23 of them on my own in art glass. I had a weird moment when I wiped down the vehicle after taking […]
