Several months ago, Warlord Games posted a "help wanted" add, of sorts, to gaming clubs around the world.

Sharp Practice - Learning the Rules with Solo Play

The Black Powder ACW supplement Glory, Hallelujah! has some amazing photographs, as all WLG stuff does.
The other night I didn't want to paint so I figured I'd try out Sharp Practice again, by myself. I want to learn the rules really well so I can show others how to play. I tried to make each side do their best option when their cards were drawn, so that I could have an idea of how the game would really play out with two players.

Recreating History at Moore's Creek Through Wargaming

Simcoe was definitely not at Moore's Creek, but I love Turn and this gif
A month ago I went on a short vacation to visit my parents in North Carolina on the coast. I have a four year old and a 1 year old so I wanted to get them out of the house and do a lot of different things. I googled for museums and battlefields and found Moore's Creek in Currie, North Carolina, northwest of Wilmington and an hour from my parents' house. I had to check it out!

Finished Gates of Antares Algoryn 1,000 Point Force

I recently finished my first 1,000 points of Algoryn for Beyond the Gates of Antares. Algoryn were definitely the first force to jump off the screen at me. I will admit their visual similarity to Garrus from Mass Effect definitely made me interested!

Sharp Practice V2 - Dipping Into the Lard

With so much stuff coming out lately it has been hard to keep up - but one set of rules that I haven't been able to put down has been Sharp Practice version two. It is compelling, characterful, and extremely accessible.

Some super cool releases and previews from GenCon!

Back and recovered from Gencon! This year it was a blast. They succeeded in gaining more ground for the convention, which made the vendor area and event areas even bigger. When we do we get to rename the city Gencon, Indiana?! OK, I guess just for one week.

As usual, I was constantly marching around the vendor hall checking out everything. Today I wanted to throw out a few things I think are worth keeping an eye on.
