On my radar.

Not sure how often I will do this, but with The Totally Rad Show ending I have been thinking a lot about the things that I enjoy. Apart from mentioning my beautiful wife, beautiful kids, which goes without saying how much I love them, I want to chronicle some of the many things that I have gotten excited about recently. In no particular order:

  1. Warhammer 40k. It is something my bother and I used to play years ago. We have recently gotten back into it, and it has been a lot of fun to spend time with Scott. My wife has gotten into it as well! (She is awesome.)
  2. D&D. I started playing when my brother got the first red box decades ago. I played up through high school, and quit playing somewhere after I got married. Fast forward 15 years, and I have gotten back into using 4th Edition. (I missed 3rd/3.5/Pathfinder.) It is different, but I am really enjoying it.
  3. Board Games. My first board game outside of the Matel/Hasbro titles was either, Talisman or some crazy Avalon Hill game. Catan, Agricola, Carcassonne, Level 7, Elder Signs, Lords of Waterdeep, Civilization: Through the Ages. Love them all.

What is on your radar?

Carcassonne dragon!

European board game day! We will be playing Sword of Rome later today.

I’ve tried to make meeples and city tokens into things other than dangley jewelry, but they were just too big and heavy. Or, I was afraid the chunky painted dudes just would not hold up to wear and tear. I want to make more subtle post earrings, cufflinks, and cell phone/zipper dongles.

So, I took a chance and sent some of my own (albeit simple) designs to Ink It Labs. They’re based out of Austin and were super quick to reply to all my questions.

I chose the 1” laser cut, 1/8” maple wood, UV coated (no color) option and HOLY COW I LOVE THEM!

They included the cut-out portion that created the negative space, which was a total surprise for me! Look at those teeny tiny cities, oh my goodness!

Look out, people of Earth. You will soon see the most rad-nerdy board game dongles and earrings. Now…To assemble!

Pretty cool idea!
