"Gaming has been a great way to get to know people. That's part of what I love about games, that they are social." - Rich Sommer"Of course the game is rigged. Don't let that stop you--if you don't play, you can't win." - Time Enough for Love by Robert A. Heinlein
Happy gaming all!
Whilst I've been playing board games on-and-off for years, it was only in 2010 that I began to take it more seriously as a hobby (with the help of my local games club). I don't usually have any specific preference for a particular genre or type - I just take the attitude of being happy to play anything (at least once).
Presently my gaming hobby is fulfilled through 3 primary outlets:
My local gaming group (which meets once a month).
A 'Descent' group (made up of myself and 4 others from my local gaming group) where we've been playing Descent: Journeys in the Dark (1st edition)
since July 2010. Thus far we have completed the base game, The Well of Darkness
, The Altar of Despair
(with myself as Overlord) and The Tomb of Ice
expansions. We made an attempt at The Road To Legend
campaign however due to lack of time we only got a handful of sessions played before abandoning it. Instead we are looking to work our way through the Quest Compendium (Volume One)
as time permits.
We have also tried playing Descent: Journeys in the Dark (2nd edition)
however the group hasn't been overly impressed with the latest version so have dropped it for now whilst continuing with the original 1st edition.
