Ah, another month, another update.
Sliding in under the wire, right before the calendar flips over to July,
no less. Funnily enough, it is hotter than blue blazes out here. This
week the temperatures are forecast to be in the low 90's, quite
uncharacteristic for Washington State!
The picture above is from another table
top game I am just getting into called WW II Micronauts: The Game. It is
a set of rules for 1/2400 scale warship miniatures made by
GHQ Models. As you can see, the
ships are pretty tiny! This is a model of the
BB-58. I picked up the rulebook and a couple of battleships, just to
try it out. If I don't like it, then the worst case is that I have a few
new models to put on the shelf!
Last Friday, Chad and I set of on a
little jaunt around Puget Sound, and discovered a neat new spot to play
called The Game Matrix. It
is about 30 minutes or so away from Bremerton in Tacoma. This is the
place where I found the Micronauts, by the way. There are a number of
tables set up to allow for gaming, and they have a wide selection of all
kinds of stuff. It reminds me a lot of a similar store near Gwen that is
called Games Parlor. All in all, it is definitely a place Chad and I are
planning on returning to play some of our favorite games.
As for the boat, I am getting closer
and closer to qualifying. Hopefully, I can make it before next weekend,
when Gwen's parents arrive for a visit!
