On Sean's Table

2018 Hall of Game

Infographic Games Played 2018

The results are in. With a little careful bookkeeping over the past year I can declare some clear winners from both my High School Games Club (now in year 16!) and the Thursday Night Game Group. What games hit the table most often in 2018? Too Fat Lardies miniature game rules providers and board game giant Fantasy Flight Games had the lion’s share of games played while High School Games Club attendance remained strong.

Here’s what you need to know about MonPoc 2.0 and using your old collectible models in the new non-collectible format.

Review: AK Interactive Wargame Techniques Magazine, First Issue

AK Interactive AKtion Wargames Techniques Magazine Review

AKtion Magazine Mini IconAK Interactive recently published a Wargame Techniques Magazine designed to build modelling skills for wargamers. The first issue is promising. It answers some of our FAQ like: How do I make MDF buildings and terrain look more realistic? The editor has obviously done their wargaming homework as 40K, Gaslands, and Infinity are addressed directly while the perennial terrain projects of trees and hills are given a fresh approach.

In the currently saturated gaming magazine market is “AKtion Magazine” worth buying?

Gadgets Galore! Scratchbuilt Foamcore and Styrene North African Buildings.

Building 28mm desert terrain has taken my tabletop battles from the dune filled deep desert, through the outlying mud brick houses, and finally into the centre of North African settlements like Tobruk and Benghazi. Using foamcore and styrene, let’s take a look at how to make two story North African buildings to fill in our city blocks. Your wallets be warned, this post is gadget and after market detail heavy.

Art of the Brick Lego Exhibit

Art of the Brick Featured Image

01 Art of the Brick ExhibitLego bricks have fascinated children – big and small – since the colourful toy in its current plastic form was introduced in 1947.  The pre-cursor wooden version was created in Denmark in 1932. LEGO, derived from the Danish phrase “leg godt” or play well, has transcended its original form to become a legit artistic medium for kids and adults alike. Take a walk with me through The Art of the Brick exhibit at the Canadian Science and Technology Museum and you’ll see what I mean.

High School Games Club 2018

This was year 16 for the Games Club I run at my high school. It reflected the trend in the larger gaming community: numbers were up overall, girls attended almost as much as boys, and the preferred type of game shifted decidedly from cardboard, dice, and counter to games focussed on more social interaction.

What a Tanker: Full Metal Dashboards

What a Tanker Too Fat Lardies Dashboards

WaT Dashboard GIF.gifWhat a Tanker! is a WWII tank combat miniatures game by Too Fat Lardies, a UK-based indie rules writing company. We (and multitudes world-wide) have played What a Tanker! a lot recently. It’s great fun! The rulebook comes with everything you need as long as you’ve got a gaming table and some miniatures to push around. Never one to leave well enough alone, however, I redesigned the dashboards to integrate the core rules and a quick reference sheet. I also magnetized the boards so that the bumps and knocks of a game didn’t rearrange the all important status tokens. Files and instructions available below the break.
