  1. The intent of this thread is to state a movie or a few movies you have seen recently or plan to watch soon. Try to include some explanation of why and if you have seen it before. My intent is to focus on movies already available and not on hype of movies not yet released. I will start: Many of the movies I watch are movies I watched as a kid and my wife never saw. Last night we watched Robin Hood: Men in Tights. It was just as funny as I remembered it. The Fly is on the short list for the wife to see...even though she is reluctant due to being anti-scary movie.
  2. Most of the items in my first KDM order from Black Friday arrived. Contacted support about the others. Note to self: buy lots more FFG Green sleeves.
  3. The lion has been hunted again. Ground Fighting plus a bow to start the first round really made this fight much easier than the last one. Not only did everyone survive again, none actually took damage during the showdown. The hunt events were more dangerous. At 21 survivors (and one of them a Savior!), I am really dreading the inevitable.
  4. Like the title says, what are you up to for gaming? Pics encouraged! Kingdomino has been seeing play at our house lately. My son was so excited he couldn't stay in his seat for this game.

    Black Friday Deals

    I still haven’t received my notice. :(
  6. Arkham and Eldritch Horror on both on my list to play at some point. As for Dominion. I forgot how decent that game is until I played recently. There is a reason it is still as high as 74 on the BGG ranks. Theme and art set it back for me as a "dated" game (compared to stuff like Legendary or Ascension or other even newer deck builders), but it doesn't suffer from the bloat that some of those games get. It also doesn't end up with the number of edge cases that other deck builders can struggle with. I hope to teach my daughter about deck builders with further plays of Dominion. I also hear good things about most of the expansions.

    Blood Rage Digital

    This. It is actually turning me off of the idea of CMON even further. I have never been super impressed with their thought processes on stuff, but this one almost feels underhanded.

    Blood Rage Digital

    Because I haven't played the game in forever and this KS has done nothing to increase my desire to play.
  9. The Kingdom Death Disneyland saga continues. Tonight Aladdin convinced Belle and Cinderella to go out on another hunt and the three of them got Elsa to join them for the first time. The group came across a Statue with a Sword and decided to leave it alone before coming across the White Lion. During the battle Aladdin fought tirelessly doing most of the damage, but Elsa chopped off a paw and Belle castrated the beast (this game is crazy)! Cinderella spent her time searching debris and finding some bone blades. The group walked away with quite the haul of resources. Before they had a chance to do anything with the resources, the group was confronted with Endless Screams of a monstrosity in the distance. Aladdin held fast and convinced the others of their safety...going a little crazy in the process and becoming the Crazed Orator of Death! This was then followed by a Triathlon of Death in which many good and many bad things happened. Notably, Aladdin tore his Achilles tendon and suffers from seizures, Belle and Cinderella are both apathetic to fighting, and Elsa had an arm dismembered. Elsa and Donald Duck decided to parent a child, that as of now remains unnamed. That brings the settlement up to 19 people. Also, Ammonia was the innovation learned. I would have rather have learned the ability to use surge, but Ammonia is likely to come in handy. After just the prologue and the first lvl1 White Lion, the settlement has a set of rawhide, a spear, a bow, a bone dagger, and two bone blades...plus lots of other odds and ends.

    This makes me tempted to sell off my original KS stuff...is that weird?
  11. Trees: fake. Real ones are a serious fire hazard here in the Phoenix area.
  12. I haven't ever made sending cards a habit. I should though. Then I might actually receive some in return. Maybe we should get a geeky card exchange thing going...
  13. Acquired an insert for Kingdom Death. Well...I built it, but I have it and previously didn't. It is seven trays total. Three on the bottom, then boards, then four trays. I am waiting for the glue to dry before filling.

    Minivember: The Last (2018)

    That is amazing! Planning a group shot?

    Christmas special edition minis

    Cat dragon is likely to not extend beyond one day. An order everyday is entirely reasonable...right?

    Christmas special edition minis

    How do you know if you haven't even seen the lineup yet?

    Christmas special edition minis

    I think that $65 each for multiple orders is going to hurt my wallet quite a bit.
  18. The other thing is that I would likely put the reverse dropper racks on my paint desk, instead of the nail polish racks being on the other side of the room.
  19. I have three clear nail polish racks and need a fourth to hole what I own. Honestly, I am contemplating swapping to the Impudent Mortal (or self made of similar style) where the bottles lay flat with bottom facing out.
  20. Arrived yesterday and today from various sales recently: -Kingdomino from Target x2 (for a gift exchange And to swap out current copy for one with the card tower holder thing) -Stone Age -Star Wars: Imperial Assault -A Feast for Odin -Stuffed Fables -FFG card sleeves x10 (5 each of two sizes) -Arlo Pro camera (for monitoring the front door)
  21. I didnt realize that Forbidden Sky was so cool! I need to pick it up now! ------------------------------------------------------------- I decided to start up a new campaign of Kingdom Death. Named the Settlement Disneyland because everyone wants to go to Disneyland...right? Aladdin landed the most hits, but backed away after taking a solid blow to the leg and chest. Cinderella didn't even land one hit, but Belle got a few good swings (including two critical hits for extra resources!) in before getting hit in the head. Luckily Donald Duck was able to end things with a nicely timed critical hit. Even more amazing than everyone surviving, the returning survivors rolled max for population AND successfully had twins! Starting off with a population of 18 makes me worried what terrible thing awaits. (It also has me tempted to go Survival of the Fittest, but I am scared to do it). Also, I used the Scribe app for the first time. This thing is amazing! It made things so much easier to manage! I am likely to send money their way (but the free version is just fine too).

    Stonehaven Dwarves Vol. 2

    Warforged are in the Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron, which is currently only available digitally, but is an official release. The small warforged aren't officially in a 5e supplement yet.
  23. That is what some of our schools around here do! Although, they tend to use Dot and Dash for the younger grades instead of Spheros.
