    Net-Fu needed to find a particular type of table cover...

    My Net-Fu is full of fail this morning. Our new house has enough extra space to set aside a corner of the basement as a dedicated "gaming room". It's not quite ready yet, but we've been slowly picking up bits and pieces here and there from thrift stores and garage sales to furnish it with...

    D&D 4E Tomb of Horrors (4E version) - anyone run this yet?
