RAW, RAI and rule abuse in Warhammer 40k; lets make a change

by Matt Gearyon 10/07/2020
I have been playing 40k since the days of the original Rogue Trader book in all it’s strange and weird glory. I took a small break in between 3rd and 5th editions, but within my time in the game, I never played competitively until 8th edition. Why? Well It seemed a bit more streamlined, and […]

by Matt Gearyon 06/03/2020

Medioevo Universale – Review

by Matt Gearyon 30/08/2019
Medioevo Universale is a HUGE game and for those who know me, there is nothing that floats my proverbial, tabletop gaming, boat more than big, complex games that take half the day or more to play and make casual gamers sigh. Until now though the only way to slate my thirst for such rare behemoths, […]
