Well met!

On 5/16, chas and I met to formally playtest Kha for SoV.





We utilized the 16 Card Draft, with the specific sets of cards that can be found here.





We managed to play 6 (10 Round) games, 2 per set of cards, on a map patterned after Sirocco by Mad_Wookie, as follows:






Game 1


chas' army: Akumaken, Red Ants of Aunstrom x 2, Chen Tang, Cormin the Dark.

kolakoski's army: Jarek Guy, Venoc Vipers x 2, Estivara, Kha.




Kha was strong and lucky. Round

The 16 Card Snake Draft Format for Classic/VC

Well met!

Some time ago, I devised a draft format for use with C3G. The plethora of figures available in the combined Classic/VC, and recent events, have revitalized my interest in this format.


The 16 Card Snake Draft Format.

Snake Draft.
It's a draft where the positions flip flop every round. For example, if someone drafts first during the very first round, they'll draft last the following round, then they'll draft first again in the next round, and so on.

So, with 4 players drafting 1 card at a time, the order would be: 1234432112344321. Each player ends up with 4 cards (out of 16).

Of course, there are an infinite number of ways to choose those 16 cards. Some totally subjective, current principles:

1. Select a map.

2. Select 4 sets of 4 cards each. Make it so that all cards in a set are of roughly equal value. The Book

Sensei Kolakoski

Posted April 11th, 2018 at 10:13 AM by kolakoski

Well met!

I've been studying Karate for 22 years. I've occasionally commented upon it herein (see
Heroscape & Karate - Martial Arts, Birthday Meditation, All Good Things Must . . .) Last week, I promoted to Sensei (4th degree Black Belt) in Kenshikai Karate.

Below is an extract from my promotion essay:

I did not begin studying Karate until I was 46 years old. I had only recently begun to work out, after meeting and marrying (six years previously) my wife, Babs, who had recently become an instructor at the Vanderbilt YMCA. Karate was initially a way to learn the basics of working out - how to move myself, and some light weights and cables, efficiently, such that I didn't hurt my previously sedentary self, but it soon became much more than that, its lessons

Well met!

Here’s a custom I've been working on, with help from various members of the Community, most notably
BiggaBullfrog, Tornado, and Drewman-chu. Card thanks to Dr. Goomonkey.




I'm hoping to have playtested him enough to present him for SoV consideration when his mini is available in quantity (May release).









For 4/18: First game with Sherman Davies' pre-set armies, featuring his customs.
