Saturday Crowdfunding Roundup - Mythos Arcanum, Gaming Paper Erasable, & Harwood's Wargaming Miniatures

Joe Aragon's Mythos Arcanum Kickstarter has just a few days left to fund and is edging up toward doing just that.  Check out his nifty RPG project here.

Eric Bauer's Gaming Paper Erasable project is nearly funded with over a month left to do so.  Very cool stuff made by these folks and I'll be keeping an eye on this as it comes to be.  See more here.

Harwood Hobbies: Next Wave of Wargaming Miniatures project on Kickstarter has met it's initial funding goal and is looking to hit some stretch goals over the next two weeks here.

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

The Friday Grab Bag - Happy B-Day to Me and You!

Today I turn another year older and I will be sure to roll some dice, and not just in a metaphoric way.  Some gaming is definitely in the offing!

Also, as I do every year, I am running a sale on all CMG offerings on my B-Day through Halloween to mark what I like to call "Marktoberfest!" which is an eight day celebration of gaming.

I will game and work on upcoming games as much as I can though this eight day festival.  I hope you can you can do likewise!

If you'd like to further help me year round, please click through to this blog often and click away through the advertisers from time to time, as it all helps to keep the lights on for me.  Thanks!

I totally stole this meme from someone who stole it from someone else online!

Throwback Thursday - Not So Desperately Seeking Chess Pieces

I'm in no great hurry, and haven't played chess in years in any serious way, though I sometimes get drawn into the odd game once in a great while.  Nevertheless, I was looking at an empty marble chess board I picked up some time back at an estate sale and thinking it could use some pieces some time this year or next.  I like the idea of a Medieval or Dark Ages theme, but not fantastical, though Arthurian would be fine.  They need not be marble and three inches for the king is fine enough as it isn't a huge board.  I will keep it under one hundred dollars, for sure, and plan to find the best deal I can before I move on anything.  Any ideas?  I've been checking on eBay a little and found one site with some decent stuff here but that's just to get ideas and not a place where I am likely to purchase.

Events & Play Wednesday - Lake Geneva Area Gaming, Late September through Late October

Good times were had by all gaming through this last month!  The Gaming Hoopla kicks off this blog post followed swiftly by a Lake Geneva Gameday, then the Northeast Wisconsin Gameapalooza, and right on through the third weekend which included Game Like a Viking Day, the Burlington Gameday, and the excellent Pizza Ranch Gathering.  Sprinkle in a pile of Tuesday and Friday Taco Bell and Culver's midday gaming lunches, and it's hard to imagine how anyone could do much more.  I've added some photos to Facebook here and Google Plus here but below are some highlights.

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