Welcome to JohnHQLD.com! I’m JohnHQLD, and this is my little corner of the internet. Hopefully, you will come and join us as we share our love of gaming.
Mainly I will be talking about things that catch my interest, primarily in gaming. Board Games, Video Games, Puzzles – I don’t mind. As long as we are all having fun, that’s all I worry about.
If there is anything you would like to discuss or would like my thoughts on, leave me a note on the Facebook page, or @JohnHQLD me on Twitter or Instagram! Follow me on Instagram if you also want to see lots of pics of our pets as well 🙂
Saturday I took a rest day after a long week. Lucky for me, Saturday was also the release for the Nicolas Cage film Willy’s Wonderland. After watching the trailer, I decided that I had to sit back and enjoy some B grade goodness. What Rabbit and I experienced was not the mindless laugh we were expecting, but a surprisingly enjoyable (but still B grade) film that I can see becoming a cult classic.
Istanbul is a game that I enjoy, but don’t get to the table often. In fact, it’s so rare, I can’t find Istanbul the Board Game in my library, only the Dice game! But the last few weeks after trying the Digital Edition, my love for Istanbul the Board game has been rekindled to the point it’s almost my default laptop game while recovering at night!
Plastic bags and pillboxes are common in many gamers storage selection. I have many containers for competitive deck builders and modified many more for various outings. Vulcan Forge has designed an amazing RPG storage solution with the Gelatinous Cube Storage Vault, that has to bee seen to be believed. It may not be for everyone, but it will catch many an eye!
I have been waiting to get my hands on the latest Downforce expansion, and last month I got my hands on Downforce: Wild Ride! Adding two new maps that take the F1 premise and adding some fun silliness helps keep the theme alive.
So I have bought a whole bunch of parts for a new PC build, but I am still waiting on my CPU. I have also been watching a bunch of PC build videos as I zone out at night. While I can look at a list of parts and go with it, I realised that not everyone can. And because the videos are short, a lot of the ‘why’ parts are used is missing.
So I was thinking of explaining my choices for the new build. What do you think?
