Conesy’s Diary: Episode 36 Black Angel the Game

Black Angel the Board Game

My wife and I recently sat down and played Black Angel from Pearl Games. While playing it I was reminded of how exited I was for this game release coming out of Gen Con 2019. A couple of months later when it was in my hands it hit the table several times. Now, a year later, it’s back on the table and the joy is still there.

Check out this first for the Diary as I do a quick review of the game Black Angel!

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.

Knight Models DC Universe Aquaman Makes a Splash!!!

Jason Momoa Aquaman

Unboxing videos and blogs are a pretty common thing with gaming channels and media. WiscoDice has never done one…..until now!!!! For our first unboxing I picked the web exclusive Knight Models Aquaman (Jason Momoa). I have been slowly building and painting a Justice League team for their DC Universe Miniature Game. I love being able to collect some of my favorite super heroes. The thought of being able to even play a game with them gets me even more excited! I hope you are as excited as I am to get into the contents of this model.

The Packaging

The model itself comes in a single blister pack. The art and paintjob of the model look really cool and it honestly has great shelf presence if a retailer were able to actually acquire this and sell it. That said, this model isn’t available as a stand alone model except as a direct order from Knight Models. This isn’t a bad thing though. What Knight Models has done is reduced some product SKUs by combining the previous movie Justice League models into one, five model kit. It’s nice as I had purchased the other models previously to have an option to pick this one up separately so that I can complete the set of movie characters.
