Board Sketching and 3D Test

I have been looking in much more detail at the mechanics of the Loch Dreagan game over the last few days, exploring how the cards and hump pieces might interact in the virtual lake as the monsters…

One of the cool things We got to see at Supanova the other day was the all the preview sets of the Megabloks World of Warcraft toys. While I may be a Lego person at heart, Megabloks have a similar…
