In case you’re sitting around with a wad of cash burning a hole in your pocket, I’m back with some suggestions upon which you might spend it.
Lately, with the coming of summer, I’ve been drafted into grilling something almost every night. My wife is a big fan of grilled corn, which is great, but it takes 30 minutes to cook. So I often find myself sitting there on the back patio, all alone with iPhone in hand. What better way to pass the time than checking out what’s shaking on Kickstarter? As a service to you, my loyal readers, I sift through the crap so you don’t have to, and bring you two gotta-have projects from the always mouth-watering “Tabletop Games” category.
Events recently inspired me to track down a good source for plastic zip lock bags. If you’re a true, hardcore nerd, then the topic of plastic bags and their many uses fascinates you. Just admit it. It does.
A month ago or so, I heard an announcement on the Roll For Initiative podcast that TSR was coming back. Or at least a new incarnation of TSR. For those of you who don’t know, TSR (Tactical Studies Rules) was the company co-founded in 1973 by Gary Gygax (co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons with Dave Arneson).
The new company, founded by Jayson Elliott, and Gary’s sons Luke & Ernie, among others, launched in November 2012, and they just released their first product, Gygax Magazine. The quarterly publication launched yesterday at a special event in Brooklyn, New York and I put my order in for a one year subscription when I woke up this morning. I haven’t been this excited to receive something in the mail for awhile.
