In The Game Room – Episode 69

In this episode I talk about a new 28mm Landing Craft model that is coming soon, Workbench storage shelves, Sprue Cutters, Beyond the Gates of Antares unboxing, Workbench light, US Marines, and more.

In the final segment I talk about a tragedy that occurred today in Virginia where a white supremacist killed a person and injured 20 more and I use some very strong language,,, because, you know, I don’t like Nazis sharing oxygen with me. You will be warned ahead of time so you can stop watching if you choose to.

A very short read … but worth reading

I found this text in the Forward of the rulebook for Beyond the Gates of Antares. This paragraph seems like something everyone should read before starting any gaming session.

“Before we embark let us remember that as gamers we share a common bond not only with each other but specifically with our opponents, without whom there would be no games to play, no dice to roll and no reason to collect and paint our armies. All wargames are to a degree collaborative affairs in which, win or lose, it is the adventure of battle that matters most. These rules have been created to help us moderate our games, but no rules can hope to cover every conceivable circumstance, let alone the inconceivable ones! There will always be occasions when we must rely upon our mutual understanding, consideration and good sense. When we ready our forces for battle let those be the qualities we bring to the table along with our armies and dice.

Sorry about the really crappy color quality of this video, I have no idea what I did to screw up the image that bad but it really looks horrible.
