The Bloody Inn, Kingdom Builder, Fortress America – what are YOU playing this weekend?

pic2618699_mdHappy Friday Saturday board gamers!

Return of the Je-DICE: An entire Imperial Assault campaign – intro


ImpAss Diary Header Final“I’ve made an impulsive decision.”

That was it – the moment a few weeks back when my friend Alex messaged me to tell me that he’d done it: coughed up the not-insignificant chunk of cash for a copy of the latest Star Wars board gaming hotness, Imperial Assault. A flurry of texts followed, demanding photos, cooing over plastic AT-STs, bemoaning Byzantine rulebooks and quickly jamming a date in the diary to give it a spin. We’ve not shut up about it since.
