Hobby Update: It’s Been a While

With my computer woes banished, for now, it's time to dust off this old chestnut and share what I've been up to for the past week.  Then again, given that I've not done one of these in a while, it's really more than a month that we need to catch up on. I'm not going… Continue reading Hobby Update: It’s Been a While

Triple Triad Cards: My Final Fantasy VI Deck

A while back, there was a Triple Triad site called TripleTriadX.  They were the second of the browser-based (rather than client-based) Triple Triad sites, and they represented my peak interest in Triple Triad.  I was very much into this game. They were the first of the browser-based sites to add cards that were not from… Continue reading Triple Triad Cards: My Final Fantasy VI Deck

Hobby Update 02/09/18: Terraforming the Sword Coast

There was no '5 on Friday' this week as I've been rather pressed for time, and so have not been reading many blog posts.  I considered doing this on Friday afternoon, between getting home from work and people arriving for games, but I fell asleep!  After my unplanned nap, my focus was on a bit… Continue reading Hobby Update 02/09/18: Terraforming the Sword Coast

Hobby Update 26/08/18: Kings of Pandemic

We gave the Hobby update a skip last week, so it's a double feature today! Last Monday, we broke out a few games down in Lybster.  We started off with some Pandemic.  I was the only one who'd played the game before, but it actually went quite well.  We kept a good handle on the… Continue reading Hobby Update 26/08/18: Kings of Pandemic

Hobby Update 12/08/18: Putting One’s House in Order

The week started with the best of intentions - a good tidy up!  The focus was on my games room and the little room that leads off from it.  The initial focus was on the miniatures - sorting them and tidying: I ended up getting rid of some old stuff I know I'd never look… Continue reading Hobby Update 12/08/18: Putting One’s House in Order

Hobby Update 05/08/18: Burn the Gooleyman!

The week started with me missing the deadline for the latest round of painting for the club's slow-grow league.  I was not surprised to miss the deadline - I usually do.  I'm not doing well in keeping up with the timescales, but I'm happy with how the painting is going, overall.  it's good for me!… Continue reading Hobby Update 05/08/18: Burn the Gooleyman!

Hobby Update 29/07/18: One Construct and His Blade

We're back up north, having spent a couple of weeks visiting family, buying a new car, seeing friends and generally chilling in the Central Belt.  It's always nice to go off somewhere, but I like coming home. On Wednesday, I headed down to Lybster for one of my D&D groups.  We've been using the Portland… Continue reading Hobby Update 29/07/18: One Construct and His Blade

Triple Triad Realms: Showcase of Classic Templates and Cards

I have made a few sets of Triple Triad templates, and I have seen some nice work from others, but by far the best set of templates I have even seen are the Triple Triad Realms set by Kas.  TTR was intended to mix Triple Triad with RPG elements to create a new, slightly different… Continue reading Triple Triad Realms: Showcase of Classic Templates and Cards

Hobby Update 15/07/18: Zug Um Zug Um Zug Um Zug

I'm visiting family this week and have been out and about a fair bit.  That said, I've had the chance for a bit of hobby time! First up was a lovely, 4-player game of Ticket to Ride.  Specifically, we played the German edition of Ticket to Ride: Germany, Zug Um Zug: Deutschland.  As with all… Continue reading Hobby Update 15/07/18: Zug Um Zug Um Zug Um Zug
