Review of X-Wing Miniatures Game (Base Game)

Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game /// We add new Star Wars fun on our blog every week! /// #starwars #theforceawakens #xwingminiaturesgame #boardgames #review #xwing #tiefigther ///

Hello everyone!  I’m “the Hubby” that Anette occasionally mentions in her posts.  I am also, what she calls “the Game Master” here at M4P central.  That title makes sense.  I have been an avid board gamer my entire life, and I have a large collection of board games – Star Wars and otherwise.  A couple of years ago I started playing the X-Wing Miniatures Game, and over the next few weeks I am going to share a series of reviews of that game here.  Let the Games Begin…

My hubby is nothing, if not a thoughtful man. Why else would he get me the new Game of Thrones season set, EVERY year for my birthday….   Why else would he happily enable my Star Wars Lego Mini-fig habit?   Why on earth would he rewire all our Internet cables in the house so we, I mean I, could get caught up on Breaking Bad on Netflix before the last season started on TV, if it wasn’t out of love for me?

And if giving your wife the complete series set of Battlestar Galactica “just because,” isn’t romantic, then I don’t know what is…

Well, maybe Star Wars Jewelry…

Oops, I did it again! (Bantha Milk Pancakes)

They sure did not look pretty, but what can be more fun than making Star Wars pancakes with Bantha milk?

The kids had a snow day not too long ago.  As a working parent it is both a treat to get to stay home with the kids on a weekday (sleep in, yeay!!), and a scramble to juggle working from home with them around.  This time around, fun won out.  Upon the kids insistence, we made pancakes.  But not just any pancakes – we made Bantha milk pancakes.  We have tried to use the Star Wars shapes before, and it didn’t work.  And I have to admit, it didn’t go well this time either.  They didn’t turn out very Star Wars-shaped.  The color was more greenish than blue.  And trying to pry a Millennium Falcon out of its mold, I sorta burnt the others.  But, you know what?  They were made with love and lots of laughter and tasted GREAT, so I still call it a success!

Coolest T-shirts Around

People are always wearing cool T-shirts to our M4Ps.  But, I have to admit I always enjoy the homemade ones the most.  (I also like the DIY costumes the best too.  It is just so much fun seeing what people can make with some duct-tape, foam, spray pain, fabric and lots of imagination)

Amy, artist extraordinaire, designed, and made her custom shirts.  (She is an illustrator, designers, crafter and just all around amazing artist – you should check her other work out here:  It will TOTALLY blow you away)
