WTC 2022 – Meet the Players

Australia has a long standing reputation in the global Warmachine community, as both top-tier gamers and top-tier sportsmen. Whilst widely regarded in the global scene, the Australian Warmachine community is both a friendly welcoming environment, and one of the most cut-throat, competitive, and intense scenes that I have personally experienced. This is the first in […]

Partners in Crime – Sharing your hobby with your partner

I love my wife. She is amazing and without her I wouldn’t be able to achieve everything I have been working towards in the past couple of years. I want to start this article with that, a little because she is my editor and it will put her in a good mood, but mainly because […]

That All Important First Step – Making Friends

Now, I think I would be fairly safe in assuming that anyone reading this, already has an interest in tabletop gaming. If you’re not interested in it (yet), then I would like you to get in touch and let me know how you got here (I might need to adjust my advertising). But let’s assume […]

The Golden Age of Gaming?

If you spend any amount of time in your FLGS (friendly local game store) you will eventually hear a discussion (sometimes getting quite heated) about which is the best tabletop game. Some people will argue that the most popular games are the best, as a wider range of players means it is better. Others will […]
