We have 5 cats, so the cats are in the colors of our cats: gray, black, orange, black, gray. The shield and laurels feature a dark blue to dark green color gradient.

Rebecca and Greg host game days at their home at least once per month for their gaming group, RNG Gaming. Rebecca wrote about how their game days are organized and posted some of the themed game menus they use on game days.

Part of the gaming group recently started a new Dungeons & Dragons campaign that Greg is GMing. The current schedule is one Friday per month.

This is a list of my top games for various situations and, as with most lists like this, is subject to change. Order is random.

  2. Gloomhaven
  3. Dead of Winter

Their game collection is housed in their basement. Games are often played up on the main floor of the house because of the natural lighting and the Geek Chic table in the dining room (sadly the table couldn’t make it down the stairs to the basement when they moved!). Here’s a look at the basement:

A wall of Kallax shelves filled with games. 4x4 with a 1x4 on top; 5x5; 5x5; 2x4.
2 tall, wide bookcases flank a shorter shelf that has cube shelving. The right bookcase houses gamebooks and RPG books. The left bookcase houses dice, games with tin boxes, and other small gaming related trinkets. The central shelf houses gaming books, small chests with games inside, and the Invisible Sun Black Cube. Above the central shelf is a metal art piece (a series of hexagons in dark colors).
5 plastic shelves with games.

Rebecca and Greg received their Geek Chic Emissary table as a wedding gift from Greg’s parents. A TON of gaming happens at this table. For almost a year and a half, a weekly Gloomhaven campaign lived in the table vault. This table is also where the D&D group meets.

The cover leaves have been removed from the table to reveal the inner vault area. All of the components for Gloomhaven are setup inside.
