Stained glass d20

Posted by: Dave In: Games

A quote from the Etsy shop of the artist: This unique, handcrafted item appeals to the gamer, mathematician, or anyone interested in beautiful objects. While it may be rolled on a soft surface, it is not recommended. The d20 can be used as a gaming counter, or just admired. Roughly 3″ in diameter, it fits […]

Dungeons and Dragons Camp

Posted by: Dave In: Games

This photo was taken at the Shippensburg Adventure Game Camp in 1982.  Are those dragons I smell?  Nope, they’re teenagers…even worse than dragons. Shippensburg Adventure Game Camp ran in the summers of 1981 through 1985. There were two one-week sessions, each Sunday evening through Friday afternoon. I found out about it because the teacher we […]

Crush the Castle

Posted by: Dave In: Games

Crush the Castle is perhaps the most addictive flash-based game since Bloxorz. It will be extremely hard to stop once you have started, so plan your time accordingly.  (I just wasted over an hour playing it.) You control a trebuchet and your goal is to knock down the different castles in each level and kill […]

This is a video game that looks fantastic. I love the Bruce Lee moves the baby uses in the very end. That is one badass baby.

+20 tattoo of gaming

Posted by: Dave In: Design|Games|Humor|Weird

Blogger Z of the Hipster Please blog recently got one of the greatest tattoos ever.  It is a line drawing of the most-hallowed 20-sided die for Dungeons and Dragons (commonly referred to as a “d20” for those non-nerdy readers out there…if there are any.) Kudos to you, sir.  Now back to your parents’ basement before […]

Leomund’s tiny pot

Posted by: Dave In: Design|Games|Weird

Actually, this has nothing to do with Leomund’s Tiny Hut. Chinese master potter Wu Ruishen (吴瑞深) has created a mini teapot weighing just 1.4 grams. The teapot was revealed on Nov 15 and is claimed to be the smallest teapot in the world. The 73-year-old Wu is a renowned pottery and porcelain artist in China, […]

  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
