So it seems that lack of playing makes me think of games much more. So what are the games I'm thinking the most about? Gotta make a list, right?

I think this is one of the games I think about the most. I do _so_ want to play it more, but there's never the time or the opportunity. I showed the basic game to my wife, but she basically told me this was "a boy's game". I don't think she'll play it again. There's http://www.boardgaming-online.com/ - but i would rather play it with someone with the same amount of experience as myself and discover the game together. I have played it some with a friend a couple of years ago, but we both are in a situation where meeting for such a long game is difficult. BUT IT'S SUCH A COOL GAME (yes I'm yelling).

I've been thinking a lot about this one too. I'm actually quite surprised that I like it so much. There are some aspects of the game that should put me off it, but it doesn't.

First there's the quests. I really don't like when cards in games have too much text. I find it quite troublesome that the text is so small. When players are considering the different quests this is a problem. Especially when we are 4-5 players and some of the people playing are sitting a bit far from the quest display. I actually considered making a cardholder that was easy to pass around the table for this game. The idea comes from a tileholder made for Feudalism...

I generally don't like event decks that much, and in essence the Intrigue deck is an event deck. But in this game it somehow works.

Finally I think I'm a bit biased, as I DM-ed an AD&D campaign in Waterdeep som 20 years ago. Must be some nostalgia? But then again: I have played this with people without any Forgotten Realms experience and they love it too!

This game... It is in so many ways my holy grail of gaming. I love the theme, and the way the game makes sense on so many levels. With this one I really got my eyes on Ignacy as a designer.

However: I do not get to play this nearly as much as I want, and it troubles me deeply. I think a lot about it.
