I actually picked up two of the chess sets (Had credit so was an easy choice). Why two? Well, one to keep in my home and one to actually use, as even if very careful theft could be a concern. I wonder how many sets we will see missing pieces?

I did go ahead and kickstarted Bedlam. I have no idea when I will find the time to play it.. and pull me away from SotA? Ugh!!! But it just seems to friggin awesome not to.

I am a little annoyed by a couple of things though. The first is that it requires steam. I have a Steam account that’s not the issue – the issue is, I use that when I just want to grab a game. If I am going out and buy something like this I should get a direct copy I own without having to use steam to do it.

The second thing is, what the hell. I want the game in a BOX, with MANUALS. For 45-60.00. If this is a 70-80’s style game, I should have that option! Dammit. Well, they missed that. they would’ve gotten 25.00 or so more from me if they had the option.

Still though, I can definitely see watching Heavy Metal and Wizards before playing 🙂
