Old tricks, new comics and fun board games. February 20, 2012 Posted by Mookie
It looked as though Stunt was about to have a repeat of his adventure across the Wild Edge, where he had to care for a wounded traveling companion, but the "stored spell medallion trick" has saved Jayden's life once before.

Thanks to everyone who sent me recommendations for new comic books and graphic novels. I've got a lot of non-superhero, non-big two (Marvel and DC Comics) titles to check out the next time I'm at my local comic book shop thanks to the suggestions sent by you fine folks!

And finally, I spent last night playing board games with my friends. I'm not much of a board gamer. I play casually and usually get my butt kicked, but I enjoy the time spent goofing around with my friends. However, last night we played a game that really struck a chord with me. It's called Small World and I highly recommend it. High fantasy fun and quick-to-learn rules made for a really great night of gaming. And, shockingly, I actually won! My lucky combination of seafaring orcs and swamp dwarves led to an unexpected victory. I highly recommend this game and will likely add it to my own (small) collection of board games.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and geek out.
