Re: Star Wars Episode VIII (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

I'm really hoping Luke's final words imply he has finally figured out the truth about the Jedi. Which is (IMO), that they had become too dogmatic in their Code and that they didn't have a perfect bead on the ultimate truth about the Force (which is something KOTOR and other Star Wars media have long...

Re: Board Game and Tabletop Discussion

I have a group of friends who play board games pretty regularly. Lately, we've played Carcassone,Dominion, X-Wing,Star Wars: Armada, and Game of Thrones: Hand of the King. Love Carcassone! And they have an app of it that doesn't suck. I've heard good things about GoT: Hand of the King. The artwork ...

Re: Board Game and Tabletop Discussion

I'm looking into Bang! -- that looks pretty awesome. I would recommend two games: 1. Werewolves of Miller's Hollow - https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/25821/werewolves-millers-hollow Trying to describe the game is ... challenging. But once you're playing it through once or twice then it all click...

Re: What's the last book you read?

The Axe: The Master of Hestviken Vol. 1 by Sigrid Undset A book about the alien, austere, painful world of 13th Century Norway. There is violent vendetta and romance, but the book actually keeps grounded within the reality of historical Norway rather than the vague pseudo-historical settings of genr...

Re: Playstation and the Playstation network

Soothscribe Hey MM I sent you a friend request just now Cool I got it SS - should play SFV or MKX sometime. Is Krogenar on PSN too? Also if anyone has Titanfall 2 that's also a lot of fun in multiplayer. And I usually don't get that into FPS multiplayer, but I love the titan combat in that game. Re...

Re: Board Game and Tabletop Discussion

Kapit - I just played Betrayal the other weekend at a friend's birthday. His girlfriend was the betrayer and her dragon deep fried my character in an elevator. The chaos of that game is too much fun, even if they could have been more clear in the directions in some cases. (I do want to get the expan...

Re: Star Wars Rebels

I love the way they handled Thrawn in this show and kept the goodness that made his character an EU favorite (i.e. his cultural art study as a window into the minds of his opponents). I had some issues with the show early on, but it really has grown and the character development is pretty true to St...

If you haven't heard, there is something of a board game renaissance happening these days, growing in community size and diversity. I've been a tabletop rpg gamer for some time and I've done just about everything (D&D, Pathfinder, Shadowrun, GURPs, etc.) and run several campaigns as a DM myself. How...

Re: Last Television Show Watched

We finished The Crown the other day. My wife is a bit of a royalist sympathizer while I'm fairly anti-royalist, so it was interesting to discuss.

I'd say 7/10. Each episode kind of deals with a different problem the royal family is having. John Lithgow is a solid Churchill.

Re: What's the Last Comic You Read?

Everyone should check out Saga. It's really great so far. I just finished the fourth volume and its definitely not losing steam.
