Holiday Hobbying: Part 1

Hallo! I am out and about at the moment, visiting family and re-engaging with (relatively) metropolitan life in the Central Belt of Scotland... Yeah, it's really confirming that I'm happier up beyond the wall. But it's still a nice change of scenery for a short time. In previous years I've brought too many games with… Continue reading Holiday Hobbying: Part 1

New Page: My Collection

I have published a new page, accessible via the menu bar or by clicking here, about my own games collection.  There was a page like this before, back on Hit Somebody, but I never got around to transferring it over to No Rerolls. The board game collection is pretty sizeable.  Here's a picture from a… Continue reading New Page: My Collection

Bundle(s) of Holding: Shadowrun (5E)

Shadowrun! As I mentioned in this week's 5 on Friday, I've not played any Cyberpunk roleplaying games before, but I'd quite like to. Shadowrun is the obvious game in this genre. There are a fair few simpler games that really appeal to me, based on the Apocalypse engine, FATE or other systems, but this is… Continue reading Bundle(s) of Holding: Shadowrun (5E)

Bundle of Holding: Fragged

I like post-apocalyptic settings.  One of the games I really want to play this year is Mutant: Year Zero, which is very much a post-apocalyptic game in the vein of Fallout.  Fragged Empire is another post-apocalyptic setting.  I initially saw the book in a Forbidden Planet in London and I had a flip through.  It… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Fragged

Humble Bundle: Dragons, Dungeons, Maps & More

With Dungeons & Dragons being my most played game of the year, D&D-themed bundles have a habit of grabbing my attention.  These bundles tend to be interesting, as they usually consist of lots of odd, little third-party goodies with which to spice up one's game.  This latest offering from Humble Bundle definitely fits that profile.… Continue reading Humble Bundle: Dragons, Dungeons, Maps & More

Hobby Update: Checkin’ in Before the Top 50

I last posted on the 25th of November with a Hobby Update.  At that point, I said I didn't have a lot of time, and things haven't changed hugely since then.  The good thing about having these longer gaps between hobby updates is that, in these quieter weeks in hobbying, I can gather a few… Continue reading Hobby Update: Checkin’ in Before the Top 50

Box of Books

We've skipped our usual 5 on Friday and Hobby Update posts this week as I'm currently without a computer.  This is a particular pain for the 5 on Friday posts as the format is tricky to replicate on the mobile WordPress app.   I have an order in for my new machine, but until it arrives,… Continue reading Box of Books

Humble Bundle: Game Design & Puzzlecraft Bundle

Most of the bundles we link to come from the fine folk at Bundle of Holding, which are almost always RPG-focused bundles.  Today, we have something a little bit different in the form of a bundle themed around game design.  Unlike previous game design bundles, this one focuses firmly on tabletop game design. There are… Continue reading Humble Bundle: Game Design & Puzzlecraft Bundle

Bundle of Holding: Lots of Gumshoe

Mystery is a crucial part of many RPG campaigns, but there are some fundamental issues with the structures of some of these campaigns.  It's great when players find, identify and interpret clues, but they don't always find them, and a couple such misses can leave a mystery unsolvable.  I mean, this can be overcome by… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Lots of Gumshoe

Bundle of Holding: Mindjammer

I'm still looking for the sci-fi RPG that fits me just right, giving me a good system that can be really flexible and gives an interesting setting that both gives a good jumping-off point for stories, but doesn't constrict with an existing and expansive IP.  This latter point, on not being bogged down with a… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Mindjammer
