  1. catsclaw227 mentions D&D!

    I had to blink twice and check my eyes, but an article on ranking NFL head coaches mentioned D&D in a matter of fact way, assuming the reader played the game. NFL Head Coach Power Rankings | When you get to #3, Mike McCarthy, you'll see what I mean. :)

    Awesome Ptolus Vinyl Map - HUGE

    Hey guys -- I'm not sure where to post this, but I just put my huge Ptolus Vinyl map up on ebay as part of a moving sale. I am sad to let it go, but I just don't have the wall space anymore, so it will end up rolled up for good. I would prefer if one of you other Ptolusites wanted to do it...

    What boardgames are you playing in 2012?

    Hey there! I was curious what boardgames are dominating your table this month year. I just picked up Dominant Species and that is getting some play. I also got Earth Reborn and I am wanting to give that a few plays as well. We've played a lot of the D&D Adventure game series in the past and...

    Anybody play Dominant Species?

    I just picked up the board game Dominant Species because it was getting such rave reviews on BGG. Has anyone played it before? Apparently, the rules are simple, but the game itself can be difficult to play because it's very strategic and there are multiple ways to win. Also, it's not real...

    The River - What did you think?

    I was actually pleasantly surprised. I read all these pessimistic reviews and watched it with open eyes and I liked it. Yes, it has LOST-y stuff. I think the weird horror factor is OK, but some of the characters I liked. The cute, brazilian daughter of the ship mechanic was cool. And sorta...

    Possibly trying Savage Worlds: Deadlands or other Settings

    Hey gang! What with the 5e announcement and our group burning out a little on 4e and D&D in general, I am thinking of roping them into a Savage Worlds game. I've read a couple of the archived "Tell me about Savage Worlds" threads here and here. And there is some good stuff in there. I am...

    Mission Impossible: 4 - Ghost Protocol. Anyone seen it?

    I am planning on hitting the matinee tomorrow to go see Mission Impossible:4. It's getting awesome reviews, and though I know there are those that won't see anything with Tom Cruise due to his personal beliefs, I've never had a problem separating his personal life with his skill in his craft...

    Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

    I just caught the trailer for this one. It looks pretty exciting! IMDb Video: Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol - Trailer #1 I am not one of those Tom Cruise haters out there, even if his views are far out. They like to make him run top speed in every one of these movies. :)

    MM1, MM2 Solos Upgraded MM3 style?

    Admittedly my search-fu is lame, but I couldn't find a post anywhere discussing whether the MM1 and MM2 Solos were upgraded MM3 style. Mostly I am talking about the more paragon and better creatures level 15+. I know that some Dragons got the treatment in Monster Vault. But there were a...

    Online Poker shut down in U.S.

    So, yesterday or sometime over the weekend, the FBI shut down and forbade access to PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, Ultimate Bet, and a few others. Apparently, there were some sketchy banking practices on the back end that gave the FBI and other agencies cause to completely shut it down for all...

    Rubicon -- Are you watching?

    I started watching Rubicon on AMC, they're only 4 episodes in, and I am really digging it. It's got some good stuff, it's just a teensy bit slow moving, but it's good about setting up characters, creating a compelling story, and treating us like intelligent adults. They don't feed the viewer...
