Salve Leitor.

 

Este artigo é a versão em inglês da resenha sobre o jogo Wiz-War. Se você se interessa por jogos de tabuleiro eu recomendo ler a resenha em português publicada aqui.

 

Até logo!

Hello Reader!

 

I have always enjoyed playing board games, but like most Brazilians of my age (and those that came before and after us) I grew up with the limited options available here that, generation after generation, populate the game sections of toy stores along puzzles.

 

If you’re reading this in English you probably had more options than us when it came to board games in your childhood, but here in Brazil our list of board games was limited to The Game of Life,  Monopoly, War, Picture This, Combat… and that’s pretty much it. I’m probably forgetting a few games and I’m purposefully leaving a few of the more childish ones out of the list (Pop-Up Pirate and Operation, I’m looking at you) but that list was pretty much what me and every friend of my own age had at home to entertain us when it rained during our holidays and we couldn’t play outside, and that’s why I believe a lot of people of my age have abandoned board games as an entertainment option as playing the same thing over and over again gets old fast.

Salve Leitor!

 

Eu sempre gostei de jogos de tabuleiro mas como a maioria dos brasileiros cresci com as opções limitadas do mercado que geração após geração preencheram as prateleiras da seção de jogos das lojas de brinquedo juntamente com os quebra cabeças.

 

Tenho certeza que você também conhece a lista: Ludo, War, Banco Imobiliário, Jogo da Vida, Detetive, Imagem e Ação, Combate… acho que é isso. Posso estar me esquecendo de algum e estou deixando de mencionar outros jogos mais infantis (Pula Pirata e Operação estou olhando para vocês) mas via de regra essa era a lista de jogos que eu e todo amigo da minha idade tinha em casa para nos entreter quando invariavelmente chovia nas férias e não podíamos brincar na rua (tem um artigo interessante no Retromotoca com fotos de um catálogo dos jogos da Estrela da época), e quero crer que esse é o motivo pelo qual a maioria das pessoas da minha geração deixou os jogos de tabuleiro de lado, já que jogar sempre a mesma coisa enjoa.

Hello Reader!

I’ve published a few articles here on the blog authored by friends of mine, who either ask to have their stuff published here or who are invited by me to share their thoughts on the blog.

 

I’ve recently done so with the “A Tale of X Gamers” articles, and also with the Warmachine starter box review.

 

Today’s post here is another guest article, this time authored by one of the good friends I’ve made in this hobby, even if we’ve only met in person once. He’s the guy who ultimately made it possible for me to get into the wargaming hobby, and especially into Warhammer 40.000: Joao Marcelo, or JM as he’s often called.

 

Without further ado, here’s his review of the Maki Games scenery pieces.

Hello Reader!

 

This is the article everyone could see coming from a mile away, but it ended up taking me more than a year to write this. It seems I’m perfecting the art of taking a while to write articles here on the blog.

 

Joking aside I do have a gestating period when it comes to writing articles like this. While some are born in the spur of the moment and seem to write themselves in a flash, others take their time inside my head, and this apparently is one of the latter.

Salve Leitor!

 

Este é o artigo que todo mundo sabia que eu teria que publicar aqui, mas que levou mais de um ano para nascer. É parece que eu estou me aperfeiçoando cada vez mais na arte de me enrolar para publicar novos artigos aqui no blog.

 

Acontece que cada artigo aqui no blog passa por um período de gestação, alguns são concebidos e nascem muito rápido, outros parecem estar sendo gestados por um elefante e esse foi o caso do artigo final da série “Visiting Britain’s Lead Belt”.

Salve Leitor!

 

Com o artigo de hoje fazemos uma breve pausa na sequência de artigos da série “Visiting Britain’s Lead Belt”, deixando Nottingham por hora e visitando outra localidade da Inglaterra.

Hello Reader.

 

We’ll have a quick break on the series of articles chronicling my visit to the city of Nottingham and the wargaming companies based there to see something different today.

 

One the things I have learned over the years is to cherish the little things we take for granted, like well baked bread, popsicles and good quality ice-cream and even potato chips (no wonder why I’m fat right?). Did you ever run out of paint in the middle of a paintjob you were really keen on, so you had to dress up and make a quick trip either to the nearby Games Workshop store or your local friendly game store for that pot of Devlan Mud? Yes, I know you would relate. Ever imagined not having a store nearby to pick up your paint from?

 

What if I told you than when I run out of paint I have to wait MONTHS till I’m able to replace it? Sounds unreal right? Well, that’s the reality of us hobbyists in Brazil, as we have no local GW stores, and almost no existing FLGS carry paint and other hobby articles.

Hello there.

 

As I have mentioned in the first article in this series I’ve taken advantage of a trip to England in January 2014 to visit a few wargame companies based in the city of Nottingham, affectuously known as Britain’s “Lead Belt” a clear reference to the many companies in the wargaming business that make the city their home.

 

I’ve already published my article about visiting Mantic Games, thus, to continue the series of “Visiting Britain’s Lead Belt” articles it’s time to talk about Warlord Games.
