I've played SET, Glam. It's very fun indeed.

SET never appealed to me, although the game store folks in NY were always recommending it (along with Lost Cities).

YAY THREAD!

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.

And just like that I'm in a Gary Larson "blah blah blah Ginger" world all over again.

SCRABULOUS!

And please fear not, libkitty. I know several of the people who started the thread also play Scrabulous, including myself.

I know very few gamers who won't try almost any game at least once. And fewer still will look down on a game for anything other than being a crap game. Scrabble is a classic.

I've had hours of fun with Scrabble, Monopoly, Life, Parcheesi, Sorry, you name it.

Gaming is a state of mind.
