Quinns’ Netrunner Tournament For Beginners!

My friend Ben and I went to our very first Netrunner tournament on Saturday. It was being run by Quinns (the one from Shut Up and Sit Down) in the Loading Bar in Dalston. The day started off at 06:30 and getting a 08:29 train from Sheffield to LONDON. That went swimmingly. A lovely woman sat next to us and was… Read more →

Into the Meta

I finally did it! I played Netrunner with people who I don’t live with (Ben basically lives here) and it was great! Ben, Jon and I spent a couple of hours running at Patriot Games last night. We had a great time and I think we’ll all go again, probably making it a weekly event. I’ve got a few observations… Read more →

Running Nets

I’ve not forgotten Netrunner! In fact I’ve been playing it more recently than ever before and I can tell you that it’s probably my favorite game. Read more →

Pagoda

I’ve been sitting on this review for about a month but haven’t published it because I wanted to get some nice photos of the game in action. Looks like that’s not going to happen any time soon so fuck it, you can probably look up some images on Google or Board Game Geek. I fairly impulsively bought Pagoda after hearing… Read more →

Quantum

Do you like pooping cubes onto planets to assert your dominance? WHO DOESN’T!! Quantum is a dice based, space themed “annoy your friends game”.  You control a fleet of ships represented by dice with an aim to placing (pooping) all of your QUANTUM CUBES. The key to Quantum is how your ships work. At the start of the game you… Read more →

Skull

Skull* is probably the perfect game. It’s certainly perfect to play in pubs. You don’t even need to buy it because you can make it with a pen and some beer mats. Each player has four cards/tiles/beer mats. Three cards have roses on them, the other has a skull. The cards are played face down. The aim of the game is… Read more →

Board Game “Reviews” Incoming

As it’s exam period once again we’ve been playing a lot more board games. This has lead to us purchasing some very snazzy new games. We’ve been very lucky and ended up only getting good ones. We’ve played them all a few times so I think I’ve got the feel of them. Read more →

Why I Stopped Using Untappd

Untappd is a beer rating website that I’ve been using since August 2012. The idea is that you check in the beers that you drink along with a location and rating. There’s a social aspect where you can “toast” other people’s check ins and comment on them. I’ve never really used that. The reason I stuck with it for so… Read more →

2014 and the Clusterfuck Therein

This year I had three resolutions, they were about 40K and I failed two thirds of them. I didn’t do anything with Kill Team and I didn’t play a single game of 40K. I did however play at least two games of Infinity and paint a fair few models. The most “important” thing was getting current with the Horus Heresy… Read more →
