Re: tabletop

Good luck!

My little group played Smallworld for the first time on Sunday, it's pretty good. It's one of my friend's birthday so I just ordered King of Tokyo for him (I wanted to get him Firefly: The Game but it isn't widely available over here yet).

The only problem with getting these new games is that it takes time away from Legendary, which I'm very annoyed about

Oh...I miss that kind of old school D&D! It was such a great way to spend a day when you had the right group of people! Have fun!!

We are taking our first stab at "Descent" tonight...wish us luck!
We played some 1st edition some months back. Nostalgic fun bashing through the classic Judges Guild haunted house adventure Tegel Manor.

Re: tabletop

It is nostalgic fun! However, in my case the nostalgia worked against us...we made the game more complicated than it actually was by trying to use our old rpg knowledge in this game. The whole point of this second edition was to streamline the rules, duh!

After a couple of false starts things went well, and I'm looking forward to playing a full campaign instead of a couple of short quests.

Re: tabletop

I got King of Tokyo for my friend for his birthday, that game is such a blast!

Also played 5 player Lords of Waterdeep with just the Undermountain expansion, it was such a change from playing with 3 players.

Do you mean the new Roleplaying game? Friends of mine still play roleplaying games (i did too from my late teens up until my early 30s) and they say it's awesome from the mechanics point of view as it doesn't restrict you too much and focuses you on storytelling instead of just rolling buckets of dice (which i always preferred).

Background wise there is nothing to say.. it''s Star Wars baby!

Munchkin is such a cool game.. as i was a RPG gamer back then when the game came out it was such a blast on two levels.. the game itself and they way it made fun of our hobby in a nice way. I've had some of the most insane and cool actions in this game and you coudn't throw a die at a RPG convention without hitting a table where Munchkin was played.

Played some variants of it too.. most of all Munchkin Fu where the level 20 monster was named Dragonlady. I had broken up with an Ex of mine before i played it for the first time and when i saw that card i nearly died from laughter.. guess which online nick she had

Re: tabletop

Won a mini-smash up tournament. It was random draw factions and you keep them. I got Robots/Miscotonic U. Felt really OP, but then the robots really seem OP most of the time anyways. The MU deck didn't really harmonize with the robots, it was more like they were just really good in their own right. Being able to use Madness cards for huge benefits then dump them was great.

Edge of the Empire, yes. Also the X-Wing Miniatures game. I doubt I'd have room for any new RPG stuff, but I'm curious as a SW fan. Also I like some of the models for XWM. I'm a tad weird when it comes to Munchkin, in that I've never really been interested much in the non-fantasy branches. Conan is the first variation I've bought that's not specific to the original fantasy version.

As a kid growing up in the 1980s, I remember playing a single player game called Chainsaw Warrior. I loved that game.

Re: tabletop

Had a fun day of playing games with friends yesterday. We introduced them to "Lords of Waterdeep" and they brought over "King of Tokyo". That game is a riot!

The way things are going we are going to have to move into a bigger apartment to fit all of our boardgames (and possibly a gaming table like the one seen on Tabletop...)

Re: tabletop

Yeah, King of Tokyo is awesome. On Tabletop this week they played Takenodo which looks fun!

Me and my friends ended up playing Legendary until 3am on Friday, just had to beat Apocalypse!

That table is awesome but I think it costs a lot!

I just ordered Telestrations and Absolute Balderdash to play with the family over Christmas.

Re: tabletop

No, but I've seen a few reviews, it looks like a lot of fun. Apparently the expansion adds a lot to the game.

Re: tabletop

Yeah, there are several expansions out now. And the game has a heck of a lot of dice (130 in the base game).

Re: tabletop

What games are everyone hoping to get for Christmas?

I'm pretty sure I'm getting the TOS Deck Building Game, and possibly the TNG one too. I'm also almost certain that I'm getting Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective (which I hope I am because it doesn't appear to be listed on Amazon any more!).

I also know I'm getting the Fantastic Four expansion for Legendary.

I got my friend Alhambra as well, since it was fairly cheap on Amazon.
