Current Banner Rotation (Feb 2019)

Just as a bit of fun, and because I know most people don't sit and hit refresh to see the various banners (and nor should they!), let's have a look at our current selection of banners. Let's start with former banners that have been removed from the rotation: Retired Banners Our original banner was a… Continue reading Current Banner Rotation (Feb 2019)

Hobby Update: A Month Into 2019

Well, January was pretty quick, wasn't it?  Hard to believe we're more than a month into 2019.  It's been a busy month, too. Hobby-wise, I've not done a huge amount.  I have managed to get in a couple of games of Terraforming Mars.  I played with a group at one of our Northern Knights sessions… Continue reading Hobby Update: A Month Into 2019

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

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!
