I think I would like to do a Star Trek Adventure RPG in the style of Voyager, that type of lost in space scenario would help compensate for those less caught up on Star Trek canon and also it would offer a reason for crew inexperience if say they were trainees lost on a day out.

Been going through a range of emotions when looking at the Humble Bundle for Pathfinder PDFs.

Stage 1: Oooh bargain price

Stage 2: Hang on, isn’t Pathfinder being replaced with a 2nd edition?

Stage 3: I’m not that into fantasy RPGs either…

Stage 4: Ooo but it does include Starfinder, I like sci-fi 😁

Ooh a Kingdom Heart board game, most excell.. oh it’s based on Talisman... *interest levels off*

alright star wars destiny, you win. i'm watching clone wars

are you happy now yeesh

Been watching Star Trek Voyager and thought that would be a good premise for a campaign board game.

You’re lost in the wrong part of the galaxy, make your way through space, visiting planets and space points of interests, make decisions, get stuck in combat, all having an effect on narrative as you gradually get closer to home.

So I ordered the 4 supplements for Elite: Dangerous, and Spidermind Games must have realised I already had the core book because they threw in the box you normally only get for buying the complete set. That was nice of them.

Its a cool place I made, with no way in, and no way out. 🍩

Fort Island... I used to draw islands a lot. This one is my favorite.

HandyCon Winter 2019 was enjoyable. Not as many games played compared to the record high amount in summer 2018, but learnt 6 new games over the weekend, including the much talked about Wingspan.

Mage Knight, Root, Reiners Knizia’s Yellow & Yangtze, Wings of Glory, and Raiders of the North Sea. That’s a great lineup of board games coming to my computer 😃🎲🎮

“EA’s Troubled Decade Of Star Wars Games” kotaku.com/ea-s-troubled-decad

2 multiplayer FPS in 6 years is unacceptable and poor output from EA. FFG has released more excellent and varied board games in that amount of time.

I get that video game development has changed since LucasArt’s days, I refuse to believe EA or some other publisher couldn’t have done a better job.

Sounds like a fun social game, I can imagine a lot of amusing take that gameplay and outrageous bidding.

First world gamer problem is worrying that someone will empty the vacuum cleaner before you’ve had the chance to rummage around and check for lost board game pieces. 👀💦

The biggest challenge to overcome will be finding the discipline to ignore bargains for good games. I am quite a bargain hunter, but I need to see if I can let deals go, especially when they’re coming from friends.

Purchase wise I’ll Kickstart the Root expansion later this year and probably treat myself with a £200 budget for UK Games Expo. Maybe Kickstart one or two titles if something very special comes up. And probably get some expansions for the games I already own and love.

My other aim for 2019 is to buy fewer board games.

It sound laughable considering my new job earns me 3 times as much as my previous line of work, but I sincerely feel I shouldn’t have a problem achieving this goal.

My board game café ambitions are going on hiatus and my gaming group is filled with so many games that I already satisfied with what I own. I’m just gonna enjoy everyone else’s stuff.

Now that I have another Rabbit Claw account registered on a Web Design centric Mastodon instance, I figured I best tweak the avatar icon here so I don’t confuse myself when I’m switching between accounts I want to post on.
