Table top games take us back to the good ole gaming days, before we had to plug in to play.
Ten Unusual Black Cards for Commander
Why hello again! If you have been following along, this series focuses on interesting cards for commander. Most of them are from the ancient, hoary days of Magic when cards more-or-less sucked just after the apocalyptic abominations presented in Alpha through Legends. Over time, some of these nearly useless cards acquired a use (yes, even Sorrow’s Path, the absolute bottom-of-the-barrel Magic card ever printed). This week I am taking a look at black cards – my favorite color! I love the cost-versus-reward nature of black as I am by nature a fairly bitter person. I also love board wipes and black has a bunch of them - some even exile!
Starting with Dungeons and Dragons
From the first time I heard about DnD, I wanted to play it. But I had absolutely no idea where to begin, and less of an idea who to play with. I knew none of my friends enjoyed that kind of stuff, and I didn't know enough to start running a campaign. So I felt lost.
This is the introduction to an event I'm planning for my TTRPG players. I'm using it for the entrance to a ravaged space station but it's intentionally written to be used for a variety of environments. Please feel free to use this to inspire an event or story of your own. Of course, as this is meant to draw inspiration you can use parts of the following story or the whole thing and change details as needed.
I create worlds. Bold statement I know, but very true. I paint mountains and rivers onto the landscape. I grow forests and savannas in the spaces between. I raise towns and cities, and I populate them with folk of all kinds. And I dig dungeons, placing traps and hazards for any self proclaimed hero that might happen along. I am a Dungeon Master, a Games Master, a Storyteller, and many other names describing the same thing. I play tabletop roleplaying games. I collect them. I even design them, though I’ll admit that I haven’t publicly published any as of yet. I am a gamer, and that is my passion.
Nothing Ever Goes Wrong In DnD...
We had a bit of a tough session last time, so I think I’ll give the party a break. Instead of another dungeon crawl that ends with an adult red dragon, maybe a nice night in the tavern. It was Dwarfish Independence Day, according to my notes that I wrote ages ago, so I think a nice, easy session where the players can enjoy the festivities would be fun.

Ten Unusual Blue Cards for Commander
Hey again Commander fans! I went over some cool white cards last week and artifacts a couple of weeks ago, this week I am focused like a laser on interesting blue cards. Not those staples that literally everybody plays, I am talking about some cool, unique cards with abilities that are hard to reproduce, and have interesting interactions with other cards. Blue has a lot of staples as we know, this makes it harder to fit some of these cards into our 99 (59 really as I usually run 40 lands, none of which are blue).
The Best Spells for Druids in Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) Fifth Edition (5E)
As far as spells go, Druids are awesome, they have a good mix of combat, support, utility, Area of Effect and Single Target Debuffs. All around, something within the Druid’s spell list will fit every caster’s playing style. The following list is by no means a full account of every good spell on the list, but simply the best spells at each spell level. Some spells will situationally be better than others, and it’s impossible to know what any individual DM or adventure will throw at you, but here are the top picks!
The Best Spells for Clerics in Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) Fifth Edition (5E)
As far as spells go, Clerics have the benefit of being able to prepare spells on a whim each day, completing changing the list of spells they are able to cast after every Long Rest. Because of this, your choice of spell matters a lot less than a class who is stuck with a limited number of spells known, but the downside is that it means that a cleric has a smaller spell list than other casting classes. Clerics focus primarily on buff spells and healing, but also have an interesting array of debuffs and some damage dealing capability. However, unless you go Tempest Cleric, your ability to lay out the same amount of damage as a Sorcerer or Wizard is likely to be limited. Nevertheless, Clerics have spells for most occasions, some spells will situationally be better than others, and it’s impossible to know what any individual DM or adventure will throw at you, but here are the top picks!
The Best Spells for Bards in Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) Fifth Edition (5E)
As far as spells go, Bards are awesome, they have a good mix of combat, support, utility, Area of Effect and Single Target Debuffs. All around, something within the Bard’s spell list will fit every caster’s playing style. The following list is by no means a full account of every good spell on the list, but simply the best spells at each spell level. Some spells will situationally be better than others, and it’s impossible to know what any individual DM or adventure will throw at you, but here are the top picks!
The Right Casino Poker Table for Your Needs
The question of whether to buy a casino poker table for sale or build one yourself should not be ignored. A casino poker table for sale can add value to your home or apartment for just a few thousand dollars. The amount you get depends on the size of the poker table. For instance, to accommodate 9 players comfortably, the table should be at least ninety (226 cm) long, preferably 90 (226 cm) wide, and the minimum clearance size of most casino poker tables. In many cases, there is little elbow room on even the largest upright tables even when there are ten people crammed into them. The smaller ones will make a small room look cramped if that’s what you’re going for.
Ten Unusual White Cards for Commander
This week I am focusing on my least favorite color in Magic: White! These are cards that are only white (excluding multi-colored cards) that may or may not be used in your commander deck (if it contains white). Surprisingly, I had a very hard time narrowing down this list as there are a lot of cards that intrigue me in white, I just rarely ever play it, especially in commander. Like last week's Artifact article, I focused on non-general commander cards. So here are ten cards that I have used or simply find interesting in white:
