I was sweating it. I will admit it. I had some very high concerns about what the finished product would be. What would it look and feel like once it was in my hands? Would D&D MS 3 be all it could be?

I was concerned for some of the same reasons you all are concerned. Maybe it is just the thrill of opening new Heroscape, but I have done that enough that I should be able to differentiate those emotions.

No, it was something more. There was a definite sense of relief upon opening the box. It isn't that I doubted what Truth, Chris, and Jerry put together. It was just the uncertainty of how it would look and feel.

Well, WotC came through with the polish and quality we have grown to love about Heroscape to go along with all the effort and ideas from Truth and Co.

I am very pleased with the look & feel and what was accomplished in this set. It is so many things all at once that it really is an impressive result given all the roles...

It is funny how passing thoughts can turn into a near phenomenon. It was over 3 years ago when one of these passing thoughts occurred on these forums:

I posted that back in 2006 when I noticed that the Tree Town Open and Hexes in Texas had selected the same day for our fall tournaments. I never thought it would turn into this. Codeman made sure it took off and three years later, we are still going strong with over 500 people competing in over 20 different events throughout the US and Canada.

Most events occurred on the weekend of October 17th & 18th with some happening earlier or later in the month, for what is becoming a month long celebration of this great game. All of the events are a great example of what scapers will do for our...

Hextreme New Year!!!

I wanted to blog about my trip to Kansas City, MO (actually Lee's Summit) for the Hextreme New Year Tournament put on by Kahrma and TOG.

This was a 470 mile drive from Dallas, where I live. I had several instances of thinking, "what am I doing?", "Am I crazy?". Of course I am crazy, I am a 'scaper. The truth is I had the time and gas prices were low; I had enough coin to make it happen and I really didnít have anything going on that weekend. With my company also giving the day after New Year's as a holiday, I already had the extra day off needed to make it feasible. I did try extensively to get one or two Dallasites to go with me, but had told myself that I was going either way.

I have come to really, really enjoy the spectacle of a Heroscape tournament. Some people somewhat loathe the tournament scene saying it spoils the game and takes the fun out of it. I vehemently disagree with this. To me, the best part of attending a tournament...
