Mansions of Obsessive Madness

Thursday's Gaming session saw another two games of Mansions of Madness and it looks like this week coming I will be having a go as keeper! I am looking forward to it but given my total ineptitude with GMing, it could go pretty badly... we'll see.

I have also recently discovered Go. It is a game I have wanted to try for a long time after making the mistake that I am sure a lot of others make of thinking it to be the same as Reversi. Having had a few games on my Android, I already enjoy it a huge amount more than Reversi, there are some really complex interactions possible that surprises me considering how limited similar games like Draughts and Reversi are. It is almost more like Chess or Shogi despite the lack of vaiable piece powers. I think the ability to pass and come back later and the theoretically unlimited pieces make for a more long-term game that has a more strategic element.

On the painting front... not a great deal of progress, I am still working away at my Empire of the Blazing Sun Fleet, I have nearly finished them and if I really knuckled down to it, could probably complete them in an hour or two... so likely it'll take a couple of weeks! What I also keep forgetting is that I have only been painting the ships and the bombers... the flyers are all sitting there primed and unpainted... oh well at least I am making some progress.
