The Floodgates Open

Wow, here we are just a few weeks away from Sixth Edition, and finally the rumor floodgates have opened and begun to spew forth information...

There's a quite a few places where rumors are put up piecemeal, but Imperius Dominatus has a fantastic round-up that seems to cover quite a bit.

You can tell that we're still in the "not definite" stages as there are a few rumors that contradict each other -- not a bad thing, there's going to be things like that when you have different sources of information. Oddly enough, looking through some of the rumors it would appear that some of the changes from the "orphan ruleset" from earlier this year were actually correct -- namely, the change in phase order from Move-Shoot-Assault to Move-Assault-Shoot. I can't decide if I like that change or not -- there's another rumor that said consolidation into assault was back in a la 4th Edition. If so, assault-centric armies are going to be absolutely brutal.

Change is definitely in the wind, gang, and it looks like this summer is going to be a wild ride indeed as our favorite game changes dramatically.

I, for one, and ready for these changes as it's become harder and harder to enjoy a game of 5th Edition these last couple of weeks. I'm ready for some new options, some new ways of playing, and for some new fun from the game I love.

What say you?

Adepticon 2012

All right!

Plane tickets purchased.

Hotel accommodations secured, reservation confirmation number acquired.

I'm ready for Adepticon.

This is my first year going, and I'm pretty pumped!

I'll be playing in the team tournament and attending a painting class...and wanting to meet some people and maybe play some pick-up games.

Who's going this year?

This just in...

...even having one of the best "netlists" ever built won't save you from bad decisions and dice that just won't go your way.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present my helping of humble pie

...which is entertaining in that I thought I was actually doing pretty go with the ol' Leafblower after coming in third in a local tournament a couple of weeks ago.

So I ask you: when was the last time you had a nice, steamin' slice of humble pie? Was it tasty? What did you learn?
