Three Generations Celebrate International Table Top Day

by Becca Harperon 01/04/2013
On Saturday three generations gathered at my house to play as many table top based games as we could, to celebrate International Table Top Day.  I am proud of what we achieved, not only did we re-visit games not played in years but we had heaps of fun doing it.  Board games and card games […]

Becca’s Pick of Bad TV Mothers

by Becca Harperon 10/03/2013
Today is Mother’s Day, a day to celebrate what a good job most of us mums do. A day to say thank you to the person that brought us into the world and guided us into adulthood, sharing with us traits and knowledge to enable us to become the (mostly) well-adjusted adults we are today. […]

Movie Review: Argo – 9GPS

by Becca Harperon 20/02/2013
Straight to the point: Believe the hype and watch this film and I don’t say that very often. Directed and starring Ben Affleck, Argo is the true story of  six American embassy workers in Tehran, Iran and their escape during the pro-Ayatollah post revolutionary chaos of 1980. Based on that description this is not movie I would have […]

by Becca Harperon 20/02/2013
Back in December I brought you the official synopsis and movie poster for the very secretive sequel Star Trek Into Darkness , since then we have had a trailer, a motion movie poster and a little more information about the project, so I thought it only fitting that I should update my fellow Trekkies.  Let us begin with the trailer: Wow […]

Man diagnosed with ‘Vampirism’ amongst other things

by Becca Harperon 10/02/2013
The world has a real life vampire on our hands. But fear not and stop sharpening those stakes; the as yet unnamed 23 year married man doesn’t seem to have the typical symptoms you would expect. No fangs, super strength, bat change form or velvet and ruffles. However, this guy has such a need to drink […]

Amazing Spider-Man 2 begins filming!

by Becca Harperon 08/02/2013
I have only just recently watched The Amazing Spider-Man and confess I very much enjoyed the web slinging, teenage angsty, yet another origin story of Spider-Man. Yes many of the elements were the same as the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man but, in my opinion, done better. I came away from the the film thinking “wow they […]

Pen & Paper Role-Play Gamers I Need Your Help!

by Becca Harperon 02/02/2013
Dear Fellow Role-players, I am keen to find out if there is any correlation or pattern between our real life selves and the characters we create. To assist on this endeavour I am asking  for help from role-players to gather information to write an article. So no matter what systems, genres or characters you play […]

UK Government prepared for Zombie Apocalypse, no seriously

by Becca Harperon 26/12/2012
If you are reading this and you are clever then I am certain you have a Z Day plan ready. Whether it’s in your head or in a beautifully bound leather book, a plan is in place. So it is quite reassuring to read that the British government is also prepared. According to the Daily […]

Star Trek Into Darkness: Official Release of Synopsis & Poster

by Becca Harperon 03/12/2012
The much anticipated and notoriously secretive J.J. Abrams sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, is due for release in only a short six months and yet very little has been officially released or leaked for that matter. We’ve known for quite sometime Benedict Cumberbatch has a part in the film but as yet no character confirmation, though let’s be honest he’s […]

Video: Fake Geek Girls

by Becca Harperon 02/12/2012
Before you starting shouting at me this video is in defense of geek girls like me. I will admit the rise of the fake geek girl meme has rarely made me laugh but frequently leaves me mad. If, for some reason, you have been hiding in a cave that didn’t have 3G, here is an example […]
