Number Tokens are awesome! I made these for our home game a while back, and we can’t stop using them. Anytime we have a quick or impromptu battle, we bring these bad boys out – they’re quick, convenient and simply get the job done. Yes, we have a healthy collection of painted miniatures, but these tokens just still manage to get used again and again. [Read the article]
My favourite day of the year is Halloween and horror is my favourite RPG genre. So, it’s probably not surprising that I generally run something horror themed around Halloween. Very often, I create something original to run for Halloween.

The last RPGaDay question for this year asks what was my favourite non-RPG thing to come from RPGing? The friendships that I’ve made through gaming tops the list for me.

Day 28 of RPGaDay asks what was my favourite game that I no longer play? There are so many games that I no longer play to pick from, this is again a very tough choice. As I think over the various games though, the one that I come back to that I miss the most would have to be Mouse Guard. Although I never played the actual game system, [Read the article]
On day 27 of RPGaDay, the question is what is my favourite idea for merging two games into one? Although pretty much my whole gaming life has been spent merging ideas from different games together, the most recent one that has intrigued me the most was combining the tactical fun of the X-Wing Miniatures Game and a Star Wars RPG for the ground action and intrigue.
