I am currently recovering from my first all-nighter in a long, long time. And boy does it hurt. I drank a lot. So much that most of my dieting work has been undone in one fell swoop, or so it feels. I’ll feel guilty about that when I stop feeling zombified; until then I’m locked… Continue reading The Bit Between Revelry and Recovery
I’m not going to make the X-Wing tournament due to unfortunate work commitments. I have to pay the bills somehow though, and there’ll be other regional tournaments to go to. In fact, a buddy of mine is already signing us up to one! So I still had a practice game against him on Wednesday. And… Continue reading More Competitive X-Wing News

The below is a narrative battle report of an X-Wing Epic game (four players aside, 250pts a player). I was on the Imperials… Continue reading The War for the Spartan Sector, First Report
Some of you may know I’m a bit of a Star Wars fan (in the same way Stalin was a bit of a tyrant). Others of you may be aware of the X-Wing Miniatures game, and that I play it. If you’re not, check it out – it’s a great hobby if you’re into space-combat… Continue reading Wars in the Stars, on a tabletop.
