Mother's Day purchases

It's true, I have no shame. While we were out and about on Mother's Day I some how convinced my wife to let me take the kids to Barnes & Noble while she shopped for shoes.

So I came away with Conan: The Frost Giants Daughter
and Elder Sign

I decided to buy the Conan title mainly because it was the only one available. The story so far is good but I don't care for the art as much as in the other two of the series I have. (Born on the Battlefield and Free Companions). The coloring seems washed out, the line drawing a bit messy/ sketchy and the inking also light. Perhaps I'm just ruined by the Roy Thomas et al works where everything was very crisp marvel drawing.

I haven't had a chance to play Elder Sign yet, but the rules are only twelve pages and it seems pretty straight forward. Seems like it will work well for solo play.

I'll try to get in a few games and reports soon.


  1. You always have to treat yourself Sean....

  2. Go for it, but remember to duck, when you tell her!!

  3. Catching the Mrs in a good mood is always a boon! Played Elder Sign a few times now, charming little game!

  4. I've heard about Elder Sign a little so I'll be interested in reading what you think about it.
