Oh yeah, where's Tordelback? I'd thought he'd be all over this thread!
As with my love life, so with board games: I spend the allotted time doing it, not talking about it with you losers.
So I play for about 3 minutes a week.
Nah, I've been reading this with interest. Had a fantastic game of vanilla Munchkin
last night with the missus and the boy, some great single-turn runs of backstabbing followed by assistance followed by backstabbing followed by assistance until one monster yielded 9 treasures... It's a rare family game where you give your wife crabs and halitosis and feel good about it. The only downside is that I now hear the Tabletop
montage music playing whenever people are drawing and discarding cards...
While I've never played it, Lords of Waterdeep
completely fascinates me, as does Escape: The Curse of the Temple
, two I have to try to get this year.
In terms of new /old stuff, I played 1989's Excalibur
for the first time last year, and we had great if protracted fun pushing miniscule bits of vaguely mildewy card around the vale of Camelot, and then back home again in time for the harvest, or last orders anyway.
