This Geek's Week...

Merry Christmas everyone!


Final This Geek's Week of the year...

** with the holidays right around the corner, I'll be headed out of town, and as such I won't be doing much gaming.  I'll return after Christmas with my annual "End of the Year" post...

Hobby/Modeling:
- I decided to work on a bit of terrain for my nonexistent gaming table.  I'm repainting an old 28mm cargo container that I had laying around.  I also decided to experiment with building some "middle eastern" style houses... Uh, yeah, it didn't work out so well.

- Worked a bit on my CSM Squad for my Red Corsairs.


Card/Board Games:
- Played a bunch of the Pokemon TCG with my daughter.  I FINALLY convinced her to sleeve her cards too!

- Played 2 games of the DBZ TCG at the LGS.

- Bought a few DBZ packs.  I also got a fighting deck and a Tyrantrum box of Pokemon TCG stuff for my daughter...


Video Games:
- Played a bit of War Thunder.  I had some good games and some not so good games...

- Played a few rounds of the Pokemon TCG online...

This Geek's Week...

Hobby/Modeling:
- Worked a wee bit on my 40k stuff, including attempting to sculpt the flames on the spear of my Spiritseer.  I'm really dragging my feet with this army, and minis in general, just because I have so little time to game, and have a hard time actually finding people wanting to play when I do find the time...


Card/Board Games:
- Built several new DBZ decks.  Went back to Namekian Piccolo, built a Black Krillin, a Red Krillin, and a Blue Goku.  I then started to test...

- Played some of the Pokemon TCG with my daughter.  She got some new cards for her Water/Electric deck, then proceeded to kick my butt with them.  She also wanted to play 2v1 and I hashed out some special rules, I ended up winning that one.

- Still working on my custom DBZ playmat.

- Made it up to the shop, and got in a game of the ALIENS deck builder, 2/3 of our team died, but the last guy easily pulled out a win.  I then played a game of the DC Deckbuilder as the Swamp Thing, but came in a distant 2nd with 49 pts.  The winner played Shazam with 98 pts...

Video Games:
- Played a few rounds of War Thunder, low tier Japanese Air.

This Geek's Week...




Modeling/Hobby:
- Worked a bit on my traitor Dark Angels squad for 40k.


Card/Board Games:
- Made a few Dragon Ball tokens to use in the DBZ TCG.  I've also designed a custom playmat that I'm thinking of having printed up.

Spartacus and Gannicus finish off Theokoles...
- Conducted an online trade to get the SDCC promo Krillin, Krillin 1-4 MP, and the Black Mastery from the starters to try and complete my collection.

- Dismantled/Built new DBZ decks for the 100th time!  This time I decided to try Namekian Gohan, Black Krillin, a Blue Piccolo, and a Red Piccolo designed to be anti-Ginyu.  (That's the hope at least)

- Played a game of Spartacus.  It was pretty damn cool!  It went pretty long, but there was a lot of trading, plotting, and backstabbing going on.  It ended in a primus that saw Spartacus teamed up with Gannicus (me) vs Theokoles and one other dude.  We ended up winning the primus, with the Spartacus playing winning overall.

- Tested out the Namekian Gohan deck, but I didn't really like it.  I'm gonna swap it back to piccolo.  I also tested out the red piccolo, it was interesting because I totally boned Ginyu out of his allies, but without any blocks, I couldn't get past the rest of his deck, I'm going to fix it as well...


Video games:
- Played a few rounds of the Pokemon TCG online...

DBZ Night in the Kansas City Area...

An open invite to anyone in the KC area, we are starting up a "DBZ TCG Night" on Mondays.  Come and hangout, trade, play games, get in demos, etc.  Sadly, I work Monday nights, so I wont be there...

... We also have a "DBZ Day" and other periodic events on Saturdays @ 1 pm.  I'm there as often as I can be, given my work schedule.

This Geek's Week...

Since starting the Dragonball Z card game, my hobby time has been 
almost exclusively all about DBZ, this week is no different...

Hobby/Modeling:
- Worked a wee bit on my Dark Angels...


Card/Board Games:
- Played a few games of the Pokemon card game with my daughter.  I actually won 1or 2 using my Slapped-together Noivern deck.

- Reworked my DBZ decks.  I converted my Piccolo Namekian to be all anger, I also built a Black Piccolo deck, and a Saiyan Vegeta Suicide.  I then got to play a handful of games with them, and here's what I found:  the Namekian one works pretty nicely, though has a bit of trouble vs Blue Ginyu.  Black Piccolo was alright, but it needs more work.  And Saiyan Vegeta was a blast to play, though again, Ginyu has an answer for everything...

- Picked up a few DBZ starters, and while I was unable to pull the 2 MPs I needed (Krillin & Gohan) I did pull 2 sets of each starter deck types, and managed to trade an extra Goku for Gohan.  Getting closer to having a full set!
