  1. General chatter - discuss anything here

    Our club in West Wales is getting around 10-15 now, which is good. But making sure people mix and games can be coordinated is tricky. Also - does anyone here know the best way to manage people who are.... "difficult" shall we say. We have someone who I think is very much (not sure if we're allowed to say this any more) on the spectrum and it is proving fairly disruptive. I don't want to ban her, but people are getting exhausted and actively avoiding being paired up with her. I can see boardgaming should be a safe space for anyone, regardless of gender/race/ailments but by the same token if it's disrupting the entire group of people who go there, I don't really know what to do. In terms of behaviours it's poor scoring/borderline cheating, terrible social interactions (declaring loudly the drugs she's taking), and just generally being utterly disconnected from societal norms. Thoughts?
  2. After reading through the thread - it's worth pointing out that a vast majority of kids, post-toddler age, when they've finished making something don't then destroy it within seconds. It's a bit like the Daily Mail thinking anyone between 13-18 is a knife wielding, delinquent maniac. This looks like a fantastic idea - and the fact the kits are cardboard and can be customised and coloured in is a great touch. I'm sure my kids will dig it before they inevitably throw it against a wall/take it outside in the rain/destroy it on a whim while cackling manically, as all children inevitably do (children don't do this).

    We gave it 10-15 hours. It's OK. The SU&SD review is pretty much on the money for me. Far prefer Too Many Bones now. Tighter experience.
  4. Games Exchange

    I have a Raider I'm looking to trade. Any other games you want to get rid of?
  5. Bright - Will Smith Hunts Orcs & Elves

    I thought this was great. It's not high art but showed more imagination than plenty of films I've watched this year.
  6. Bargain buys for everyone.

    It's not that spectacular a deal with the postage is it? About 36 quid. It hovers around there quite often.
  7. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    I couldn't play it with the moves and shaky turning. But I guess it depends how irritating you find snap turning in VR.
  8. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    1.02 is out with smooth turning on the Moves (PSVR version). I'd say it's transformative.
  9. PlayStation VR

    Doom with the Aim and full smooth turning on is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.... However... is anyone else not getting controller vibration?
  10. Bargain buys for everyone.

    Send it back via a drop off courier, not Royal Mail.
  11. Games Exchange

    I think I'm good felt!
  12. Games Exchange

    I have the following up for trades if anyone is interested: Viticulture EE (sealed) - and yes I have another copy along with Tuscany, I love it Rum and Bones (1st edition) Mice and Mystics - I'm just finishing the painting, but it'll be ready soon Masmorra Zombicide Black Plague/Prison Outbreak I'm interested in any mid/heavy euros.
  13. Bargain buys for everyone.

    It was 25 quid after postage. You can pick it up for about that on BGG/eBay.
  14. The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    Thanks man - So, when you say highlights - I should use a fine brush and lighter tones and manually pick out edges? Rather than continue to dry brush over the top in lighter tones? Should I try to imagine a light source, or sort of pick out standout edges?
