Well it appears that I have survived my Three Piece Terrain challenge and the Bolt Action Games shall continue! But what I discovered is I really love creating terrain.

In the aftermath of my acceptance of the Three Piece Terrian challange by my husband, my first thought was one of panic. I am not creative and putting a craft knife into my hands is a dangerous action!! This is taking me way out of my comfort zone.

As always the Soviets ( My Son) are  always going on about how big and powerful their armies are and with the new addition of the IS Heavy Tank I would have to agree. The Soviets love to play a game with everything they have, no points for a mega battle. I think he is getting too big for his Russian Ushanka.


It was after the ...

When I speak of my love for games, the conversation usually starts out with “ Oh you like to play games?” My response is always “Why yes I do!”. Then the conversation starts to go down hill because somewhere along the lines they have mentioned “Monopoly or Clue” and...
