Today I want to share with you some of the best sci-fi board games I have had the pleasure to play recently. I have been hooked on these types of games since I got Space Hulk for Christmas back in 1990. It was a game that opened my eyes and ever since I have had a real love for games that have a sci-fi twist. So if you are like me and love a good sci-fi board game then have a look down below and see what some of the best are. By the way, you might also want to check out our guide on the best Star Wars board games
More and more adults are buying Lego for themselves and having an awesome time building it. That is why today we are looking at some of the best Lego sets for adults. Lego has made some truly fantastic sets over the last few years, sets that contain, hundreds if not thousands of pieces and sets that are so cool that you will have a fantastic time building them. I was lucky enough to get to try out three of the larger, more adult oriented Lego sets recently and I wanted to share with you what my thoughts on each one were. Let me tell you, building Lego as an adult is a very calming and kind of therapeutic experience!
I got bitten by the stargazing bug a few years back, basically when I realized that I could buy a budget telescope and do some stargaze and not need a huge telescope like you see in the movies. Anyway, while I have my own awesome reflector telescope, I have been lucky enough over the last month to be given the opportunity to put to the test some fantastic telescopes. Stargazing is something I love to do with my two boys, so I was sure to let them have a go to as stargazing can be an excellent family activity. Anyway, grab your coffee and check out these five telescopes.
Ok so I am something of an amateur drinker, well in comparison to some of my buddies I am. But that does not mean I do not love a good drinking game. Well, recently I got the chance to check out three of the best drinking games you can buy (alternatively, you can also play some Star Wars board games). Was I wasted after just a couple of rounds? Or did I manage to stay sober most of the night? Keep on reading to see how much fun I had with some of the best drinking games that are on the market right now.
So you have gotten into amateur astronomy, you have your portable telescope, your finder scope, your guide book, your snacks and thermos of coffee…. But what are carrying around your telescope in. Once I was stargazing just outside San Antonio and so was this other guy and he carted his telescope around in a gym bag! A GYM BAG! You have probably spent a couple hundred bucks on your telescope and lenses can be fragile so you want a good telescope case to protect your equipment and also make it easy to carry from site to site. Well today I am looking at three popular carrying cases and seeing what one is worthy of your telescope.
A few years back I was given a rather budget telescope for Christmas. Sure it was very basic, but it was this that lighted a fire inside me a fire that saw me get really into stargazing. Over the years I have upgraded my telescope (actually done this a few times, but do not tell my wife) and have bought a ton of accessories such as an astronomy observing chair to help me get a better and more comfortable look at the skies. But today we are looking at some fantastic books. Books that will help you learn more about stargazing and books that would make for a great treat for yourself or a fellow stargazer.
