Game Projects

This is really just a quick update on a few game projects I’ve been working on.

I have posted a few times about my tuck boxes.  Well, since I have started playing Sails of Glory, I have been interested in upgrading some of the components of that game.  Now, I could easily just buy upgraded components, but where would be the fun in that.  I decided to try and make them myself.

The first step was…

I managed to finally try out the TIE Defenders for Star Wars X-Wing.  The TIE Defenders are the last ship from the latest wave I had yet to try.  This match was a bit unconventional.  Usually, casual matches pit Imperial forces against Rebel forces.  This match followed more tournament rules (squad against squad, regardless of whether…

2014-07-13 12.22.18This is really just a quick note.  Much like the X-Wing tuck boxes I printed up, I created tuck boxes for my Sails of Glory ships.  I do have to admit that the X-Wing boxes are really more for show, but this is not the case for Sails of Glory.

In Sails of Glory, each ship has a ship card (two sided, showing the two ships that it can be), a ship log (which provides the stats for the ships in…

Saturday Songs

I think that I just needed to pick a song that seemed to fit how I have been feeling about myself lately.

Tonight I’m showing off my latest discovery that I found at my local craft shop.

I had gone in there looking for a box to fit two blocks of pluck foam.  The boxes I had at home were 13 by 13, and (unfortunately) the blocks measure 13 by 15.

I did not find the box I had looked up on the internet, but I found these.  These particular boxes are 14 by 10, just the right size to fit the blocks with a little extra.  And, the boxes can attach to each other.  In other words, instead of carrying 4 boxes, you are carrying 1.

Gaming Weekend

This week did not see any X-Wing action, but we did hit the high seas with Sails of Glory.

2014-07-13 12.45.03As I have mentioned, I originally picked up this game because I thought it would be something fun to play with my father, who recently retired.  I have played it twice before, and have those times I have managed to get the rules on damage a bit (read: way off) wrong.

This week my dad joined me in playing…
