Printing Easier Than Ever With Printer Friendly Articles

Don’t you hate going to a website, finding something you like, and then trying to print it without all that extra stuff? Or, when it prints parts of the website out on tons of pages of paper?

Websites have created printer friendly versions that print much easier. Now, the CWF Game Cast has done the same.

We are using a great plugin that helps you to print articles from this blog and bring them with you when you game.

At the bottom of each article, right under the ratings, is a printer icon and the words “Print this article” Click that and you will get a printer friendly version of the article. For example here is a printer friendly version of our War @ Sea: 8/15/07 100pt Tourney @ Battleground Games article. Compare that to the regular, printer unfriendly, War @ Sea: 8/15/07 100pt Tourney @ Battleground Games article.

Once you have your printer friendly version you can either print as normal (File>Print, Ctrl+P, Apple+P, etc) or you can scroll to the bottom of the printer friendly page and click the “Click here to print” text. Moments later the article arrives out of your printer.

For the interested parties the articles will print all graphics/pictures, comments, and links. To save on ink please set your printer to print in black & white. We can alter the settings on our end and if the demand is high we will alter them. We can toggle the setting for printing graphics, comments, and links separately.

Hope you enjoy this new feature and happy printing!

Axis & Allies Minis/War @ Sea: Master Have/Wants List

With the success of the War @ Sea: Master Have/Wants List it was time to add regular Axis & Allies Minis (AAM) to the mix. As an added bonus we’ve integrated the newest and most up to date War @ Sea (WAS) list. Be sure to keep track of this article as it will have updates for the combined AAM/WAS lists.

Many gamers who play Axis and Allies Minis also play War @ Sea and vice versa. The new set for AAM comes out end of this year and nows the perfect time to trade with other gamers to complete your sets.

If, you happen to have anything I want please don’t hesitate to contact me. Send an e-mail to cwfgamecast@wargamingforums.com or talk to me in person or on AIM as cwforums.

Let’s Make Fun of Collectible Minis

There’s been a lot of talk about Collectible Card Games (CCGs), Collectible Minis (CCMs), and Collectible Constructible Games like Pirates and Transformers and Star Wars on the blog.

You just have to look at our Collectible Cards/Miniatures category to see the 26+ articles on these games. The articles have been relatively positive and in spite of all the hooplah it is easy to forget some of the obvious flaws in these types of games.

Therefore we’ve borrowed a poignant issue of the great webcomic Dorktower. Hope you enjoy it and please be sure to visit Dorktower for all of the issues. John Kovalic does a great job with it and I your visits to his site help him get ad money. Click below to see the webcomic.
