Epic Gameday ⏩ Together with my game mates @martijn.nijman and @diobrando_boardgame_explorer had another fun thematic game day.
We played Blood Rage and Merchants & Marauders. Martijn crushed us with his bear clan as a viking, but I screamed off in a quick lead at M&M being a nasty little French pirate. But all in vain of fun gaming yes ☠ 😎
Great games and great fun 🌟 🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️
Since I missed out on the kickstarter I decided to pickup @mattdixonart's transmission 3 and blueprints as a bit of a treat. There are so many lovely robots in each book and the use of colour and texture is fantastic to look at :)

DARK FUTURE : WHITE LINE FEVER
Advanced Rules for The Game of Highway Warriors
Richard Halliwell. Games Workshop 1988
One of the very few boxed miniature games in the late eighties from GW not to be set in the Warhammer universes, Dark Future was Mad Max for Wargamers and Workshops answer to Car Wars. This single expansion (not counting WD articles) is chock full of Vehicle Design rules, New Kit and Advanced Rules. Ive seen a few 'Road Warrior' games emerge in the last few years what with the movie reboot but none quite match the elegance and depth of this system by the talented games designer Halliwell.
Family Time Games was BGG's 8th stop on our little trip. When we first researched game stores in Indianapolis this one immediately caught our attention based off of online pictures and reviews, but in the end it left us very disappointed. Upon entering the store it appeared they were maybe under going a remodel but no signage was seen stating that. The first thing that caught our attention was the boardgames in the window. We are not a fan of this as it bleaches out the boxes and ruins the box art. They had a large collection of games, with multiple copies of games. They were poorly organized an example, expansions were not by their base game. Due to their shelving it made it difficult to accommodate their inventory so they stacked games on the floor. The same problem was in their miniatures area. They had an extensive take and play library, that was unorganized and disheveled. They could have used 3 more shelves to hold their games verses having them piled on the floor. Some of the take and play games were open or missing their lids, and did not look well taken care of. They did have nice game tables and lots of play area. There were a good handful of people playing games at various tables. Our last question concerning the store was, what is going on in the back area? As you can see from the last picture it was a mess. This area was visible from almost anywhere in the store. It appeared to be a lot of trash, broken down boxes and various home items, like a couch, TV, beanbag and lamps. It was odd and made the store feel cluttery and unkempt. This store could have a lot of potential, but unfortunately it left us with a heavy heart. At this point BGG gives it 2 thumbs down. The only reason we would come back would be to see if changes have been made. Otherwise this will fall to the wayside. #bgg#belowgroundgamers#familytimegames#games#boardgames#cardgames#miniatures#tabletopgames#warhammer40k#wargames#gamesontour#gamestoretours
Spent 12 hours playing games yesterday.
First up was Forbidden Stars from 10:30am til about 5:30pm (with a lunch break at the local pub around 2). Next up was a game of Rex until 7:30 (my team won, it was tense). Then I taught a game of Warriors of God and got my butt handed to me.
Finished the night off by jumping into a game of Concept. #boardgames#wargames#gameempirepasadena#fantasyflightgames#multimanpublishing
