The hits just keep on comin'!

We've been really fortunate this year with the amount of generosity that the gaming industry has shown us. I'm just amazed!  Please show your appreciation for our sponsors by visiting their sites, liking their Facebook pages, following their Twitter feeds and all manner of things. Just don't camp outside their houses, that's weird.

Mike at Hammertime Hobbies has donated some Battlefoam trays for X-Wing. These will be raffled off at the X-Wing event.  He's got a great store in North Vancouver, very close to the Eagles club where CHOP! resides.

Ninja Division is a new games publisher joining the market place to bring you high quality games and products featuring the work of creative studios Soda Pop Miniatures, Cipher Studios, and other independent designers. In addition to publishing and supporting our own line of products, Ninja Division serves as a creative services company to other publishers to leverage our skills to help enrich the hobby market with high quality products.

The most awesome Ross Thompson, head Ninja at Ninja division has bodaciously agreed to donate some good stuff to our event. They produce high quality games. I own every available Super Dungeon Explore fig and I'm in on the Forgotten King Kickstarter. Soon I'll be swimming in Sparkleburst like Scrooge McDuck in his vault! If you haven't played SDE, whhyyyy? It's tons of fun!

FFG is known for its quality of game components (often enhanced with highly detailed plastic miniatures and beautiful artwork), innovative gameplay, professional dedication to customer service, and a cutting-edge online presence providing information and support for its many products.

FFG's best-known titles include games based on licenses such as Battlestar Galactica, World of Warcraft, and The Lord of the Rings, proprietary titles such as Arkham Horror and Descent: Journeys in the Dark, as well as re-releases of classic titles such as Cosmic Encounter, Fury of Dracula, and DungeonQuest.

In 2008, FFG formed an exclusive partnership with Games Workshop to represent its acclaimed IPs in the hobby games market, publishing new versions of classic titles such as Talisman and Horus Heresy as well as brand new games such as Warhammer: Invasion and Chaos In the Old World.

X-Wing is one of their most popular miniature lines. We should know - many of us own several of the ships and at least one of the starter sets.  They've generously agreed to donate some prize support to this year's event.  What exactly I'm not sure yet but I'm excited to find out!
