This Geek's Week...

- Worked a bit on my knights for Saga.  I'm working on the white layers for 12 of the knights, all at once.  It's a slow process, but once done, it will be all downhill from there.  I'm really hoping to have the Knights finished by the next time I post...

Tabletop Games:
- Made it up to the LGS again, and got in another game of Saga.  Teutonic Knights vs Norse-Gaels.  It was another loss, but I still had fun,  honestly, I'm mostly just trying to get comfortable with the battle board itself.  I'll probably set up a game or two in my basement to get in some practice, try working out some the kinks.  All in All, Saga is pretty awesome!

- I ended up playing another Saga game, and this time I wrangled my daughter in on it, since the goal was just to try and figure out the battle board a bit more.  She took control of the Crusaders and I played my Teutonic Knights.  I won, but geez, warriors are the BANE of my Hearthguard!

Card/Board Games:
- Picked up the Mega Rayquaza figure box, Rayquaza collection box, Mega Rayquaza Pin set, and the Absol Ex collection.  Finally, I let my daughter get the Blaziken tin as well.

- Played 5 home of the Pokemon TCG with my daughter.

- Played 16 games at the Pokemon League, and received 3 badges for my new Koffing bag.  Next weekend is a local tournament, and I think I'm going to give it a try...

- I'm also going with a theme for all my Pokemon League and tourney gear, and that theme is KOFFING!  He's on my deck case, and now I have him on a backpack.  I also ordered a blank, purple Playmat, and I drew him on there as well.  Finally, I'll round everything off with a fancy purple deck box, sleeves, and purple dice!

TV/Video Games:
- I received Pokemon: Omega Ruby for Fathers Day, so I've been playing that a TON!

- I've also been playing the Pokemon TCG Online.  (Add me, I go by WuhSawBe)

This Geek's Week...

- Worked on my Saga stuff a bit more.  I'm switching from working on the foot warriors, to primarily working on the Knights... As they'll make up a bulk of my force.  I've started working on assembling the final 10 knights that were my spares.

Tabletop Games:
- Played a game of X-Wing with my daughter.  It was Fett + an Academy Pilot vs Soontir Fel & Fel's Wrath.  I ended up winning, but my daughter played out a full game, and is getting better with the maneuvers.

- Played a game of "Monster Killers" with my daughter.

- Got to play a game of SAGA, and it was AWESOME!  4 pts of my Teutonic Knights vs Scots.  I lost, but had a blast!  I just loved the back and forth nature of game, where it's unclear just who the victor will be until the final round.  It was a very refreshing gaming experience!

- Went to the Pokemon League, but only got to play 1 game.  I did buy a few packs for my daughter, and she pulled the Ultra Rare Version of Mega Rayquaza EX.

- Played 9 home games of Pokemon with my daughter.

- I've also been watching a bit of the Pokemon UK Nationals on YouTube as the podcast: PTCGRadio posts em up.

Video Games:
- As always, playing plenty of the DS.  (smash Bro's, Pokemon Rumble, etc). Add me as a friend:  "WuhSawBe": 4785-7761-0040

- Also played a bit of the Pokemon TCG Online.  If you play, feel free to find me on there, I go by "WuhSawBe".

Something interesting I stumbled on...

The other day I stumbled upon a podcast episode that I think EVERY GAMER, whether competitive, semi-competitive, or even casual  can learn something from!  This episode of Next Level Z is an interview with Will Jonathan, a mental sports coach, and personal development advocate, and while the topic may be related to the DBZ card game, the message easily translates over to ANY other game, be it, miniatures or cards.  The overall message is that your mental approach, whether positive or negative, to a game or event at ANY LEVEL, WILL have an impact on not only your overall enjoyment of the experience, but can actually have an effect on your overall outcome as well.  It's real easy to listen to as well, just follow the link above, no need to download anything, just click play.  It's about an hour long, and they jump right in!  Before anyone says "but, I don't play DBZ,  it wont make any sense!"  the actual DBZ talk is pretty light, and you can easily translate the message over to your favorite game.
