Gaming in Newfoundland

Well lets start with where to play in Newfoundland.

The biggest gaming group that I know of is the Dragons Den NL which are mostly 40kers. They play at Time Masters(33 Kenmount Road, St. John's) Sundays and Wednesday nights. The Terrain at Time Masters is very old but the guys are pretty cool and very open and welcoming. You don't need to pay or have a fully painted army.There's usually around 4-6 plays there most gaming nights. If you want to know whats on the go tho (if anyone is going that night, etc) you have to get on the mailing list for the yahoo group ( Getting on the group is easy show up one night and ask to be added.

The other shop in town is Sword and Steel I've never gone to a gaming night there I hoping to get someone who has to do a mini review of what's going on there in the future.

The Geek days the boys and I put off once a month, which is usually a different game each time we play see Geektactica or the John Street gamers Blogs for more info.

The last place is the MUN Tabletop Games Club which has a face book group. This group I'll be going to this Wednesday to check out whats on the go. So nest Friday I'll have more for you.

Till next time this was gaming in Newfound

Opening up the Floor

I've been thinking a lot about making a kinda news paper for gaming on the Island. I'm going to start posting every Friday. I hoping to get some people to write articles for my blog, so if you have anything please send it into me ( This Friday I'll be doing a bit on bfg. I'm thinking of putting together a ordnance table for what happens to it as it meets different things. Kinda a cheat sheet. Also I'm going to be putting up a list of places that you can play table top games at for people with a view for the new person in town, like MUN students.

Rant kinda?...

I'm going to put in place a new rule for myself. I will save $20 in a bank account for each month until i get all my stuff painted. Yes I mean all my stuff. I think it should take about 5 months give or take. This is the list of stuff I got:

Long Term:
3 Russ tanks to be repainted.
5 Tau capital ships.(BFG)
Murader jack.
Karchev (I 'm going to call him Chevy it's the name of the tuck that's going to hit the boys)
Lizard men army to repair/repaint (thinking dip project)
Table to think up and build cause I got stuff(foam)to work with.

Lets not forget stuff I have to get done for the 20th's BFG day.
Tiger sharks

Things to do after that are to be done right after the BFG stuff:
6mm light horse.

All in all really not that much when I think about it. I could do this in like month if I work hard.
