Episode 79: Online Board Gaming Made Easy with Board Game Arena

On this month’s episode of WiscoDice our intrepid team of hosts take a deep dive look at Board Game Arena. We talk about the platform itself, share our thoughts, and then look at some easy to get started with games that you can play with friends and family. Finally we will give you a few games that we really love to play on BGA!

On top of that, we talk about the games that we have been playing. Brian and I dive into some miniature hobby talk discussing projects we are working. More clues are given to what Brian’s secret project is. Do you have any guesses as to what it might be?

Also, a big thank you to all of our participants in our contest. We’ll be reaching out to you soon to collect shipping information and let you know what you have won.

Conesy’s Diary: Episode 49 Warhammer Fantasy Dwarf vs Vampire Counts Battle Report

1000 Point Dwarf Army Ready for Battle

I recently played a game of Warhammer Fantasy Battles against Brian’s Vampire Counts. It was great fun, even if the game didn’t go my way. Seeing the battle lines form up, come together, and due battle was a blast.

Moving Forward with Warhammer Fantasy

A lot of people I have spoken too are dead set to keep Warhammer Fantasy Battles alive in some way. I applaud them for the effort as this will be a tough road moving forward. If your one of those people, then this post is for you!

So, what can you do to help talk your fellow players into playing this game still?

  • For right now, it’s not much work. Sure, there are people trying out Age of Sigmar to see what it is and how they can make it work (or make it fail) but the vast majority of players just don’t know enough about this new game and are just as happy playing the game that is within their comfort level.
  • Next up, let’s face it, 6 months from now the scope of what models and rulebooks that are going to be available on the shelf at your local Games-Workshop or Local Game Store is going to be much different. If you are going to grow your armies and maybe even talk a new player into the game, look to companies like Mantic, Avatar’s of War, Raging Heroes, and more for models.
  • Address some of the balance and rules issues as a greater community. People will need to keep things fresh so I wouldn’t be surprised to see local groups start to add in units/rules based on their experiences with the game and models they can get from other manufacturers. Don’t forget to go back and help out armies like Tomb Kings and maybe tone down some things that you don’t enjoy in your games.
