Gamers need lovin’ too!: How to love and live with a Gamer

My husband is a gamer. Not a random “whenever I’m feelin’ it” kind of thing, but a serious GAMER. I, on the other hand, am most assuredly not. I know we can’t be the only couple out here like this. It’s inevitable in this day and age of gaming there are multitudes of gamer/non-gamer couples. Yet every single person I know has asked me at least once “How does that even work? If he’s always on [insert game here] how is your relationship not suffering?!” Well, there are some very decidedly nice perks about gamers…

Medieval tavern-themed gaming room: even the power outlets look olde

Weapons, secret drawers, sewage vents in the ceiling, and a 6″ deep players dungeon!? Yeah, this Medieval-themed gaming room is out of a Dungeons & Dragons fever dream and must be seen to be believed!

Draw on your tablecloth again and again

More like BRILLIANT idea of the day! The reusable doodle-able washable table cloth. Fun for dinner parties, kiddos, and, most importantly: FUN TIMES FOR TABLE TOP GAMING.

Throw this party: A Nerdy Thirty birthday party

About two weeks before my 30th birthday, someone reminded me that my “dirty thirty” was coming up soon. To which Aaron, that guy I married, responded: “With Megan, it’s more like her nerdy thirty.” And thus, a theme was born!

This is how I pulled off one hell of an awesome Nerdy Thirty birthday theme with only two weeks to plan, and with a little help from my friends.

From dining room to Questing Lounge: how to make a customizable table top-game board

A couple of weeks ago, my friends and I created an adventuring party to start playing Dungeons and Dragons 4.0. We all got together one night and played using some miniatures harvested from HeroClix and a tiny map from a Lord of the Rings tactical fighting game.

While the first experience was awesome (we made those skeletons PAY!), we realized we needed more than one map if we ever wanted to adventure anywhere else. None of us has the money to dump into buying thousands of maps or printing them off. We needed a cheap and reusable playing surface.

Homemaking for Gamers: Playing well with others and preventing gaming goods sprawl

My husband and I believe a healthy adulthood includes creative play. However, we have interests other than gaming and prefer miniature dragons do not overrun our home.
