  1. I use Cigar Box Battlemats, which are printed fleece. They are quite nice to play on, especially when they're representing grass or whatnot.
  2. I saw this skirmish game at Guardian Games and it piqued my interest. Has anyone picked it up and played it?
  3. Did anyone follow up on this? I can grab you one if not.
  4. Having played quite a lot of DBA, I heartily recommend it as an intro to ancients wargaming. Despite playing with 12 stands to a side on a 2' square board, it manages to neatly capture the feel of a big battle with minimal rules. That said, it does take a bit of getting used to; the author, Phil Barker, always favors succinctness over clarity when writing rules...
  5. Might want to check with Rune & Board in Hillsboro, too. Their website says Tuesdays for 40k.
  6. I do, but it's assembled and primed silver. If you're interested, I'm happy to part with it.
  7. Two: Nordlond Sagas for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG, a very Viking-flavored take on D&D 5th edition. Ends on October 12. Less gaming, but no less geeky: Save Cameron's Books, a campaign to save a local bookstore that's being evicted from its current location in downtown (because the lease is up). If they don't find a new location, they'll have to close. I'm a fan of independent bookstores, so... Ends on November 7.
  8. Stark Street Pizza is a great old style pizza parlor. My favorite before I went low carb.
  9. "I don't know," is always a valid answer. It's better than giving the wrong answer.
  10. I'm a librarian. Answering questions is so engrained it's nearly instinctual.
  11. Duffy, Christopher. The military experience in the Age of Reason, 1715-1789. Interesting look at the soldier's eye view of war in the 18th century, from recruiting and barracks life to fighting in battle. A nice change from the usual military history focusing on tactics, strategy, and politics.
  12. Tillamook Forest Center is worth a stop if you're on Highway 6. Ditto the Tillamook Air Museum, if only to gawk at the size of the building. I like the Leach Botanical Garden, but I'm not sure how much it would appeal to a teenager. It's probably a bit out of the way, too. If the weather's clear, though, Powell Butte has some good hiking and views. If you head out the Gorge way, I recommend the Gorge Interpretive Center in Stevenson, WA; the Hood River fruit loop; and the Western Antique Air and Automobile Museum in Hood River. (Especially the fruit loop, since we're heading into apple season.) One of my favorite drives is to do a loop out highway 26 to the Hood River Valley and come back on I-84. Lets you hit Timberline Lodge, too.
  13. They're definitely rocking a Necron vibe. I want to see some kind of bone giant or something, though.
