...or why I bought an ipad2.
So even though I couldn't come up with an overly compelling reason to get one, coupled with the fact that I am an Android phone owner. I picked up an iPad, since I am a gadget guy, with the fact that the android tablets dont have half the apps that apple's does, (Netflix, Hulu, and HBO I'm looking at you). And a coworker was picking one up. Hence techno envy, I caved.
Well so far so good, and I must admit that it's become my main browser while sitting on the couch. Pretty cool stuff. And yes it's pretty cool I can sit on the can and still get the full browsing experience.
So basically this is going to be a quick synopsis of this great new miniatures game I've been playing lately: Monsterpocalypse
It's made by Privateer Press, the company who created other miniatures games like Warmachine, and Hordes. If you don't know what a miniatures game is, it's basically a pseudo board game with little figures that represent a player's "army" as such. I am in no way an authority on miniatures at all, so please forgive me if some of my terms are incorrect.
The game, like many tabletop games, is played on a "board/map". The basic theme of the game is Monsters rampaging across cities and destroying each other (think Godzilla). Thus, the map is modeled after different cityscapes. On it you place little plastic buildings and setup a great looking "model" city complete with different types of buildings; skyscrapers, banks, nuclear plants, apartment building and more.
