Skylanders Swap-Force Haul (Good Will)

Skylanders Haul

I had a great find at Goodwill for $8.99, a bag full of Skylanders. Everything came in a carrying case: inside were 20 Skylanders and the Portal. The figures included: wash buckler (swap-force), whirlwind, horn blast whirlwind (swap-force), blast zone (swap-force), pop fizz, terrafin, knock-out terrafin (swap-force), ignitor, super gulp pop fizz (swap-force), slobber tooth (swap-force), trigger happy (giants) , dinorang, bumble blast (swap-force), jolly bumble blast, lava barf eruptor (swap-force), pop thorn (swap-force), slam bam (giants), ninja stealth elf (swap-force), wind-up (swap-force), and groove machine (swap-force). Two plushes: trigger happy and gill grunt. The swap-force portal.

I will use a few of the figures as inspiration for Pathfinder monsters: pop thorn, looks like a flying puffer fish; slam bam, looks like an ice elemental; 4 armed yeti, slobber tooth, a prehistoric dragon turtle; and pop fizz, a furry goblin alchemist. Some I will keep for monster figures, but others I will sell.

Smash Up On Steam Free Early Access

Just a short off topic note here. Smash Up! is on steam. The game is still in Early Access but hey ! It’s Smash Up! The Developers plan to bring it to IOS and Android as well. At the moment I have only noticed it on Steam. For now, the free version only has 3 factions. But more will come and are already available for purchase.

If you love board games you likely have given this one a play or two. If not Check it out its FREE. I myself will likely be waiting until it hits IOS. As I have an ever-expanding collection of great board and Card games on my IOS.

(Note: This is Early Access expect some bumps in the road.)

So some Details.



Why Early Access?

“Smash Up is a unique and popular card game. We want to be sure that players easily grasp the premise of our digital version and check that our design is the optimal solution for playing both solo and multiplayer games. We want to be sure that the online experience is as good as it can be. We want to check that our delivery mechanism is acceptable for players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Around two months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The final game will have 3 factions in the free version and the possibility to play against three opponents online. It will be possible to purchase a Starter Pack which will grant access to the full suit of 8 factions found in the physical base game. That means each player can have a unique combination to ‘Smash Up’.
During Early Access, the only difference will be that the Starter Pack will fill-up with factions during that period. Additional player factions will also release more of the game’s Base Scoring cards, which are themed to match the respective factions.
AI will become more challenging at the harder level settings. We will make functionality adjustments based on player feedback. Support for further languages will be added.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is playable both online and offline. Basic online functionality is in to allow online multiplayer and we will be refining the system through Early Access.

The three free factions included in the Early Access version are Dinosaurs, Ninjas and Geeks.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. People buying the Starter Pack during Early Access will receive a discount.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will be monitoring forum feedback to assess the game’s learning curve, preferences for factions, and overall usability.”


DogMight Treats: A gift to RPG Readers.

With Convention Session upon us. DogMight Games reached out to me and wanted me to offer up a sweet deal to anyone of my readers heading to GenCon or Origins. If you make your way over to take a look at some of their fine products in person. Just show them this coupon printed out or on your phone and they will give you 20% off your purchase.

That’s a pretty good deal considering if  like me. I waffled a lot at the decision to make the purchase of their products because of their price point while only looking at pictures of their stuff.

But wow when you see it in person. You are going to be glad you got this coupon with you. So go forth and enjoy! As always, thank you for coming to my blog. Thank you for making all of this so much fun and GAME ON!



GM’s day Sale Suggestions.


Well, here we are on Monday that 7th. GM’s Day sales are in full swing and like me, some of you are finally settling in to decide just what you are thinking about picking up. Well, I had two people ask me for suggestions and what was on my list of things.
And since I am going to be looking the lists over. Why not give you a short blog about what caught my attention and maybe why.



SO here we go and in no particular order.


Right out the gate if you do not already own Mutants & Masterminds 3 and you like Supers settings. This is a steal don’t let it slip by at 11 bucks off. I myself already have it.


Moving on…

Numenera is a solid grab as is The Strange RPG. And If you know me at all by now or have followed this blog even a little bit. You knew I was going to say this. But I am going to change it up on you and say skip them and pick up the Cypher System Core rules! With this book, you have the beauty of the strange and Numenera rules as well as the freedom to set those rules in ANY setting you desire. TOTAL WIN>



Firefly RPG Core book. This has been on my wishlist a while. I think with this sale it will finally end up in my basket.


Symbaroum-Core rules. Well now .. this is an Electrum seller..and exactly what GM’s Day was made for.  A system that is not of the big guys.  I myself have never heard of it. It has slipped my attention until now but obviously with its rating it sounds like it should be a Sound product. This is likely going to be a grab that you will not regret. I think I will be picking this one up.


DAMMIT firefly .. why do I keep doing this to you. I’m sorry!

Savage Worlds Lankhmar also has been on my radar since November and I have a friends copy on my table as I type this. I like it ALOT! If you’re a fan of fantasy and like the Savage Worlds rule set. I would give this a strong recommendation as well.


Evil hats Monster of the week would be a good grab for under 10 bucks.


So there you have it! .. What books were your top picks from the sale? Did you pick any books up?  Did I miss a great product? Let me know!

GM’s Day Sale Till March 17

GMsDay2016-Banner-DTRPG2I always keep my eyes out for the cool sales over on DTRPG. It gives me the chance to pick up a system that maybe I have been thinking about but have not decided to commit the money to just yet. Often it’s just that few bucks in savings that break me. Sadly more often than I would like money is the tipping point that can keep me out of buying into a new game. Thus is the reality as it is for most gamers on a budget.

And that is why I love GM’s Day! 24,000 books on sale at 30% off. and some like over 50%. SO yeah it’s a great sale. Stop reading this and go over there and look for some new RPG’s!

There is are link’s over on the right that will take you straight there. Enjoy and happy GM’s Day!
