So I'm like,bored and stuff so I registered here :)
I have been a long time lurker of the forums, mainly because it seems a place where you can see people actually discuss the games instead of the boxes or a barely grasped understanding of the rules. It truly seems people have a healthy rotation of games instead of a new one each week and while I'm sure most have unplayed collections here, I'm willing to overlook it ;-)
I'm not so much of a player as someone who likes to talk about games but I will play almost anything that is fun. While I really like economical and train games and you may hate me for not thinking Arkham Horror is too much of a good game I will play anything and I really like a lot of ameritrashy titles like Cosmic Encounter and the eyt to be pimped Car Wars.
I also have a gaming blog and like the Fortress' podcast.
You know, that actually looks pretty interesting. I bet my oldest boy would love it. Is it available for sale yet?
FABULOUS! Music to my ears.... We will be Kickstarting an expansion pack as well before next year.
Pre-orders start next month (June), right after Origins... Distribution is thru Alliance, so they should be able to truck it to the store nearest you! Tell your store to look in GTM #148 for a full page ad.
I just got here from likely the Drake's Flames. Let's go with that since I can't actually recall.
I am a wargamer and boardgamer from way back. I am lucky to have a fiancee who likes most of the boardgames I play. We have a small group of rpg/boardgamers that get together as well which is nice. To satisfy my competitive nature I like to track everyone's wins on the game boxes. My girl is killing me in Dominion, but I have the edge on Thunderstone. I can't seem to beat her in 2 player Merchants and Marauders.
I think that I am one of the few people who does not like Agricola. I am definitely not a fan of the worker resource games.
We just moved into a house and now we will have space to spread out Arkham Horror and some expansions.
