September 19

I love Calvin and Hobbs

Not sure why this tickles me so much... I guess it just reminds me of what its like to be a kid.

Here's a choice collection of strips.

Speaking of being a kid, we have resolved to run a Brik Wars session next Saturday. With six adults and five kids:


  • Pre-construct buildings and vehicles (get kids to do this)
  • Scope out game board - fit on our dining room table, but use Tim's tiles and raised structures
  • inventory (figures, weapons) - needs to tally with points
  • special rules
  • Beer and food - Murray's butchers burgers and sausages.


Hopefully we'll get a few games in. The main thing is that they have to be short.

  1. No vehicles, free for all hand-to-hand skirmish. Four teams.
  2. Two teams, one vehicle each, basic 'kill the other side' mission, but with a twist - twelve werewolves are released on the board at some predefined point or event. Any figure bitten transmutes after two turns.
  3. (Last game) One team is protecting a large bomb housed in an indestructable bunker, the other team has to break in and disarm it. The bomb goes off anyway at 9pm (bedtime).
