Whoop! Nice shiny new digs...
Gaming 1: You are likely to be eaten by a grue
A thread for the discussion of games: board, LARP, MMORPG, video, tabletop RPG, game theory etc. etc. and all attendant news, developments and ancillary subjects thereof, as well as coordinating/scheduling games either online or IRL. All are welcome to chime in, talk about their favorite games or learn about gaming of any sort.
PLEASE TO WHITEFONT SPOILERS for video games, RPG modules or anything for which foreknowledge of events might lessen one's enjoyment of whatever gaming experience.
Any of you played SET? [link] We played at work recently and it was surprisingly addictive and fun.
I hope to learn something by reading this thread. Do you all feel the immense pressure?
I've played SET, Glam. It's very fun indeed.
Yay, gaming! I've got Age of Empires II at home, but hte computer keeps kicking my ass.
SET never appealed to me, although the game store folks in NY were always recommending it (along with Lost Cities).
So much gaming to talk about, I don't even know where to begin.
I've been considering picking up some new video game for the new computer. I was thinking about Sims 2, but all I can ever find are expansion packs.
As for the RPG front -- at some point, probably next week, I plan on taking a look at Fantasy Grounds 2, and looking at what modifications are going to be needed for our purposes.
Also, spurred by a number of recent events, I'm finally starting work on a modification of the d20 system that reworks everything into a classless, level-less, hit pointless system. Yes, I am just that bored/stupid/insane. But I think it can be done. And the same recent developments that have started this project of mine up again have given me some good ideas along those lines.
I've been looking forward to the voting to be done to come in here and post that I've become addicted to Scrabulous on Facebook, so if anyone would like to play, please let me know and I'll invite you and/or let you know my real name. Or if you know my real name, just invite away!
I have a sneaking suspicion that this is not the kind of gaming people were talking about, but I can be a pushy broad, and this addiction is not to be messed with lightly.
