Tabletop Trials… Guest Appearance

It looks like local streamers have figured out my weakness for local games... First it was PlayingBoardGames.ca and their invite to play Train Heist by Tower Guard Games and now it's Tabletop Trials. They've invited yours truly to come out tonight and play Aftermath:...

Comic & Gaming Stores as Community Spaces

I remember posting when I started this list that comic & gaming stores developed their own communities and that they were places to share your passions. What I didn't say is that they're also resources for the community as a whole. Those tables & chairs...

Falling Into Place: Four Films by Satoshi Kon

I realize now that we've seriously neglected Metro Cinema. Their feature on Satoshi Con falls right into line with our Focus on Taste of Animethon this month so... See their write-up below... "Satoshi Kon was an acclaimed Japanese animator and director. During his lifetime he completed...

Turkey Shoot-Jan. 14
