5 on Friday

It’s Friday, and here on No Rerolls that means it’s time for a little digest of some of our favourite articles from the past week.  Of course, we’re slow readers, so don’t be surprised if there are some articles that are a little older – these are just some of the great articles we happen to have actually read in the past week.

They are in no particular order, so let’s get into some recommendations:

January P500 Update – A Journey to the Inner Sea @ The Player’s Aid – As someone recently bitten by the P500 bug, this article makes for an interesting read.  My bug doesn’t seem as virulent as the author’s, though.  My 3 P500 games pale in comparison to his 19!  He also writes about the upcoming Ancient Civilizations of the Inner Sea, which has definitely caught my interest, too!

The Expanse Is The Best Sci-Fi Show on TV [Polygon] @ Eric Watson –A post that has nothing to do with games!  Go figure!  I’ve linked to the author’s own blog rather than the full Polygon posts, as it’s nice to give him all the attention!  The article is a cool rundown which acts as a pretty convincing sales pitch for the series.  It made for a good read.  I am holding off on watching it until I finish off the first book, which I picked up the other week when I had a few hours to kill in Inverness.

KNIGHT MODELS RELEASES RIDDLER, EMPEROR PENGUIN, GREEN LANTERN, SINESTRO, AND MORE! @ Graphic Policy – A roundup of the latest releases from Knight Models.  Loads of cool stuff in this batch, but my favourites are definitely Green Lantern and Sinestro, though I also like Quelle.  Really, they’re all good, but these were my highlights.  The author also gives some useful background on the releases.

Getting on Board @ Journey To the Finish Line – From a non-gaming blog, a really nice article about a parent taking their first steps in trying board games with their young children – along with all the trial and error that involves.  Really nice article, enjoyed reading it.

FOR THE LOVE OF GAMING! Tabletop Edition @ Pixelated Rampage – This is a long, affectionate love letter to tabletop gaming, starting with shared childhood experiences and working through to adulthood.  The article made me nod along, thinking “me too!” and “yeah, I get that” all the way through to the really nice ending where the author expresses gratitude to tabletop gaming.  Sweet, positive, enriching article.

On No Rerolls this week, we’ve had a moan about PETA, we’ve thought about shovelware and we’ve gotten all excited about some apps.

See you next week!
