About Me

I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play.

Q is for Quickie

Rather poor images I'm afraid, but it's only a quick box-ticker to get something up here today, and the thing's already been put away so I couldn't be arsed to dig it out and re-shoot it, soz!

Picked this up for a quid-fifty the other day in a charity shop, nothing exciting, it's a CCG (collector's/collectable card game) from Steve Jackson games, but you may remember I got some figures tied into the same branding a while ago?

Well, there's no mention or mechanism for the figures in the rules or on the box, so they would just seem to be a gratuitous 'Let's do some figures' type thing - which I think I suggested at the time? But there are two spare compartments in the box, probably/primarily for expansion-set card packs, but my figures fit nicely, so they are all together, which is nice!

Just need to find time to play the game . . .
