I’ve been a bad blogger. I haven’t written anything for this blog since January 15, and here it the last day of March. My sponsor, GMS Magazine, tried to jog me into action a month ago, and it almost worked, but I got busy or lazy or both. It isn’t hard for me to get lazy–I was born that way. And I was working like crazy on Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls in January and February. I’m still working like crazy on that game, but I could have found time to say something about other games I’ve played or liked.
I proudly admit to being a Gamer Geek. I play all kinds of games: FRPs, board games, card games, word games, puzzles, and various computer-based entertainments. Today I am going to talk about collectible card games, and especially about Shadowfist, the game of Hong Kong action movies.
You may be a better gamer than I am. Although I love to play, I’m really more of a writer/designer than a true gamer.
I thought I’d make a list of rpgs I’ve played and maybe throw is some comments about them. This isn’t so much a critical article or review as it is rambling and self evaluation of my own RPG Gaming history.
Well, he had me at the word “game”. Of course I stayed and tried out Dixit. We had 5 players, and the game can handle up to 12. Five is a good number for a board game, there’s some variety in the players, but not so many that things get confusing.
Are you one who believes in playing the game the way the rules tell you to play it every time, or . . . are you willing to mess with the written rules to get a game that is more fun with just a few tweaks and changes? You know what kind of guy I am. If I were always willing to go along with the original rules, Tunnels and Trolls would never have been created.
