Halloween cleanup and Geek and Sundry

Posted by: Jason Silverain / Category: , , , , , , ,

Well as the pumpkins are cleared from the street and the stores covert all the Halloween aisles to upcoming Christmas deals I hope you all had a fun Halloween, while my own was spent with friends eating far too many sugary treats and takeaways while watching old B movies and Mystery Science Theater some people out there did some amazing stuff.

I am personally looking forward to seeing what DeviantArt user Ceemdee has created this year with their impressive pumpkin carving, for those of you that haven't seen her work here are a few examples from 2012:

Shadow of the Colossus and Bastion

For anyone who would like to have a try Extremepumpkins.com has a tutorial for beginners.

Finally for you still in the mood for some horror to inflict on your fellow players on the gaming table I highly recommend watching Will Wheaton's Youtube series Tabletop, recently he played the classic horror game Betrayal at the House on the Hill a board game published by Avalon Hill (and more recently by Wizards of the Coast). Players all begin as allies, exploring a haunted house filled with dangers, traps, items and Omens. As players explore the mansion, new room tiles are chosen at random; until enough Hauntings and Omens have occurred and the scenario is discovered with one player often been a traitor.     
In any case its well worth a watch, but now its time to finish the Out in the Wilds series of articles.
