Review – Gaming Paper

      While looking for a replacement battle mat for our weekly D&D games, I stumbled across Gaming Paper.  I’m always intrigued in anything thrifty or frugal, but this seemed too good to be true!  A low cost alternative on which I can create custom terrain?  Wow!  The arts and crafts side of me struggled with the logical side of me and curiosity won out.       I was quick to email the folks over at Gaming Paper and request a roll to evaluate.  (They kindly sent me 4 rolls- but we’ll get to that at the very end.)  Here are the facts about Gaming Paper, as put forth by the creators: “Gaming Paper is the latest innovation in roleplaying and miniatures accessories and is a low-cost alternative to expensive battlemaps and tile sets. It’s an inexpensive, reusable and disposable product for gamers. Gaming Paper is sold in convenient rolls that are 30 inches wide and 12’ long, for 30 square feet of playing surface. At only $4/roll, it is a fraction of the cost of other gaming mats on the market. Not only is it usable for miniatures games, but it is also ideal for roleplaying games. Anyone can use pens, markers, or other simple writing implements to create detailed terrain for campaigns or miniatures battles.” To give you a visual, here’s a photo of the paper compared to the more expensive mat:  The bottom layer is my mat, the shiny layer the gaming paper.        The company actually created their own YouTube channel to show many demos of what is possible with Gaming Paper.   Also, it’s worth noting that the product is up for “Ennie Awards” in two categories: “Best Aid or Accessory” and “Best Miniatures Product”.   Now, about my experiences with the product: I tested a roll of both 1-inch squares and a roll of 1-inch hex grid.  I subjected it to many tests- cutting, writing utensils, spills,  small children…  Here are the findings:  […]

Character Creation Is Not for the Faint at Heart

 Evil, my 9 year old diva, has been a D&D player since she was 7. This summer, she found out that I was running a level 17 Intro to Epic Campaign and she demanded in. Fine, I told her.  Just  build your own character. Up until this point, Papa (her Step-Dad) or I have made every character […]

Review: Dorkness Rising

 From time to time I lose my sense of humor.  (Or, so claims my husband.)   I have to admit, during these times, I roll my eyes at even the most immature attempts of comedy.  In retaliation to my request for another “meaningful chick flick” he pulled The Gamers: Dorkness Rising into our Netflix queue.   Yeah.  […]

A Gamer Girl E-Zine?

 No, it’s not what it seems. I was extremely interested when the “D20 Girls Magazine Summer Sampler” showed up in my e-mail yesterday.   The text accompanying the e-zine sounded promising: Well, the highly anticipated D20 Girls Magazine is right around thecorner. But just cause we like to tease a bit. Here is a sample […]
