Setting Sail for Blood & Plunder

Blood & Plunder loot!

We are a little late to the game, as Blood & Plunder from Firelock Games was on almost 3 years ago, but, we finally started. Better late than never! We did consider getting involved in the Kickstarter, there had many enticing stretch goals, however, the timing was bad (we had a nice backlog of Bolt Action miniatures that needed painting), coupled with the price and the idea of metal miniatures, we didn’t buy-in back then.

This fall though, we took the plunge, when we noticed they had introduced a cheaper two player bundle. After some deliberations, naturally we decided to go for the more expensive and expansive national starter bundles – pirates and Spanish.

Dungeon In A Box, Unboxing [Feb]

on . Posted in Unboxing & reviews

Dungeon-in-a-Box was originally on Kickstarter back in November of 2017, but because it sourced the components for the box, it didn’t meet Kickstarters original content requirements. It was taken down and sold through the creators’ website, Dungeon In A Box.

Dungeon-in-a-Box is a subscription-based Dungeons and Dragons 5e adventure that mails subscribers a new episode every month (in a box - hence the moniker). Their current subscription plans are offered in 1, 3, 6, or 12 month packages, ranging in price from $22.50 to $26 per month. It should be noted that shipping is an additional monthly charge, for all plans. The website has a ‘calculate shipping’ option at checkout; for us it was $7.20/box for US delivery. At the time of their first box, the product is not available for international DnD adventurers.

We committed to the annual plan. Those that had signed up for the original kickstarter received a 5% discount. The reason we signed up was because, in addition to an annual story line, it comes with multiple add-ons including miniatures, maps, and artifacts.
