    After doing lots of research on gaming tables, we finally settled on a custom-built table and cabinet from Uniquely-Geek. As they do not do chairs, I had the chairs built by an Amish community on the east coast and then shipped to Uniquely-Geek in AZ to match the finish. QSWO finished with Danish oil and lacquer. The slats lift off (the 2nd picture shows the storage solution for the slats) to expose the Game Vault in which game pieces and figures can be stored in place until the next game session. You may notice a groove along all four sides of the table. It is a rail system, allowing for various attachments such as cup holders, table extensions, tablet holders Etc. Put the slats back in and voilŗ, time for dinner.

    Not a gamer but I can really appreciate that level of craftsmanship. Beautiful table!

    So my wife and daughter recently attended a local GameCon for some sweet D&D action. There was an artist doing some free hand pencil and ink pictures. All you needed to do was provide a description of what you might like.

    My daughter requested a portrait of her D&D Female Wood-Elf Ranger that is equipped with short swords, a bow and leather armor. This is what he banged out in a matter of minutes.

    My wife, who is a dental hygienist, requested a career-related fantasy picture that she can hang on her operatory wall.

    Honestly, my phone pics don't do them justice. The pictures are on 10 x 8 heavyweight paper, and are pretty damn cool. All for 15 bucks!

    That is some kind of talent!

    Looking worthy of a place on the wall for sure.

    It was fitting that our most recent Funko Star Wars Smuggler's Bounty box arrived April 30th, the same day as as Peter Mayhew's passing.

    Figured with current events, it might be a good time to revive this thread. With both my wife and I out of work, and our daughter participating in online school four days a week, we've got lots of extra time on our hands. We've got more than a few games at home, and decided to break out a couple of classics recently

    These are styled after the comic series rather than the television series, and provided a satisfying twist on familiar gameplay.

    These are some cool looking board games. Before this shutdown happened I bought Arkham Horror, I played Eldritch Horror with a friend from work and really liked it but couldnít find it so I bought this one instead, happy I did as its such a cool game. You can play 1-6 players co op so itís you and your friends vs the board game. Gameplay says 2-3hrs but the wife and I spent 5hrs with just the two of us, and had it go 4hrs with six of us.

    So many little pieces and even comes with a rule book since there is so many situations and rules to play by. Overall a cool game to learn and spend a afternoon or morning since I ainít working lol

    I've heard Arkham Horror is a great game, but I've never had the chance to play it. As fate would have it I've got Eldritch Horror. LOL.
