Kickstart Monday: Checking Out Superheroes and Aquariums

Grab your coffee because it’s going to be a wild ride today. It’s Kickstart Monday!

Two new Kickstarter projects have grabbed our attention today. Let’s start with THE BOYS: This Is Going To Hurt The Board Game by 1First Games. The Boys have been particularly popular since their hit series hit Amazon’s streaming service. We’ll see if the game lives up to the comics and show. Then we’ll take our time and watch the fish in Aqua Garden by uchibacoya and Underdog Games. I am just going to say it has some of the coolest meeples I have seen in a board game!

The Boys comic book, which this game is based on, is a twisted parody of popular characters from Marvel, DC and other comic book lines. Super heroes are all created with a compound called Compound V. This Compound in existing super heroes can give them an extra boost. Be ready though, for super heroes in this universe have dark issues that lead to exploitation of everyone they can.

Conesy’s Diary: Episode 34 Let’s Get You Started With Airbrushing

My Airbrush Station

I was in a Discord talking with a beginner about airbrushing. They had done their research and were closing in on making that purchase. I shared what advise I could with them. It made me think that I bet there are a number of people out there that could use some advise regarding their first airbrush.

Here’s all of the equipment I use for airbrushing:

I hope to purchase soon, but I don’t recommend for beginners: Iwata Eclipse HP-CS

The Best New Board Game Releases for your 2020 Holiday Shopping

It’s the time of the year to be festive. With many of us, we are looking at our favorite online retailers this year to purchase and possibly ship gifts to our friends and loved ones. With so many games out there, WiscoDice is here to provide some guidance as to what to buy your board gaming friends.

It’s worth noting that we have not played any of these titles. These are games that we are excited about ourselves. After reading reviews, watching game play, and doing enough research to make ourselves a little jolly, this is the list that we settled on.

For this list, we have looked at the top games that have either just released or are expected to release before the Christmas (December 25th) holiday. The list will feature both stand alone board games as well as expansions to popular games. Gamers can be very difficult to buy for. Anything that has just released going into the holiday season is something your gamer just might not have in their collections yet!

I hope you are excited for our holiday board game top 10 shopping list!!!

Going Crazy Unboxing Paladins of the West Kingdom

Paladins of the West Kingdom
Game Box

Every year my friends organize a gaming weekend we call Cabincon. We all chip in to rent a rural Wisconsin house and bring enough alcohol, food, and board games to last us usually about a month. The event is a blast! One of the best parts is all of the exposure to everyone else’s favorite games!

At our 2019 event I was introduced to Architects of the West Kingdom which is a brilliant worker placement game. I had to immediately pick it up at my local game store and get it to the table at home. Not much time after did I realize that Renegade Game Studios was producing a trilogy of these “West Kingdom” games and that it was all ready released. Recently I was able to head to the store and pick up my copy.

Harry Potter: Catch the Snitch

One of the best parts of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was the sequence of events that led to Harry’s first game of Quidditch. In the game Harry Potter: Catch the Snitch you actually play the game Quidditch on the tabletop. The game will pit two players against each other. Get your broomsticks ready because it’s going to be a wild ride!
