Saturday Crowdfunding Roundup - Fumble Shirt, Aventyr Bestiary, & Primeval Thule

A TFund and a couple from Kickstarter this week with the first being the "Lets Get Ready to FUMBLE!!!" t-shirt here.  Very reasonable price for an online shirt purchase and nicely designed too.   They need 18 more shirts purchased in the next 16 days to make this project happen, so jump in and get one for yourself or as a gift for a gamer-friend.

Also, on Kickstarter, check out the "Aventyr Bestiary for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game" project from Adventureaweek.com here.  It's been well funded and has hit some great stretch goals already but there's more in store for those who want to dive in.

Finally, on Kickstarter as well, have a look at the "Primeval Thule 5e" project from Sasquatch Game Studio LLC.  Richard Baker, Stephen Schubert, and David Noonan have a wealth of experience in RPGs and other gaming areas so this one looks like it might get very big.

Keeping an eye on those Kickstarter & IndieGoGo
projects plus other crowdfunding efforts.

The Friday Grab Bag - What's New in the CMG eBay Store?

There are dozens and dozens of new listings in the CMG eBay Store since last I prompted folks to have a look: 70+ RPG items, 80+ Miniatures listings, wargames, boardgames, card games, and many other gaming items.  There are some auction style listings but most are Buy It Now listings with prices set somewhat below what I have researched through eBay and other gaming item outlets.  So, please, have a look and enjoy these screen caps of just some of the offerings.  Since I managed to add so may things but am nearing my listing limit, I am running a quick sale at 10% Off throughout the store.  Now sure how long this will last.  As soon as I have sold enough stuff to squeeze in my next pile from the closet, the sale will end.  So, grab yourself a nice gaming treat here!

Throwback Thursday - 90s Apple Watch, Nintendo Theme Park, & Bicycling History

Over on cnet.com a few months ago, Amanda Kooser wrote about an "Original '90s Apple watch selling for $2,500 on eBay" here.  I don't remember these, myself, but they look pretty sleek, albeit it in a retro sort of way now.

Also, on comicbook.com in May, they told of the "Nintendo Theme Park Attractions In The Works At Universal" here.  I wonder how many folks will go just to try out the old consoles.  They'll probably also have some cutting edge stuff, too!

Finally, on nationalgeographic.com, check out "A Century of Bicycling History in 16 Pictures" here.  Some cool pictures but I had hoped for a wider array of the bikes.

A look back at early tabletop hobby gaming
 or gaming-adjacent topics of the past.

Events & Play Wednesday - Lake Geneva Gaming, June to July

Leaving aside the excellent Nexus Game Fair, (the photos of which I have already shared earlier this month here), I didn't get out to as many events this last month due to work and other commitments but I still got plenty of gaming in.  Check out the pictures on my Facebook album here and a Google Photos album here.

News of Conventions and Gamedays as well as pictures
from those I have attended and games I have played.
