Tabletop gaming is a blast. #1 son has gotten into it with family friends, along with RPGs. Arkham Horror is presently a favorite alternative to RPGs, along side Space Hulk.
I've not done much Arkham Horror
since picking up the newer Eldritch Horror
. The game mechanics have been streamlined (something I thought AH needed) so it moves along at a better pace without missing much of the depth. I still occasionally look around for deals on AH expansions but it's generally all about EH when I'm in the Lovecraft gaming mood.
I've built quite a collection of the latest and greatest in the past couple years, along with some oldies and some revised oldies. Don't often get head-to-head games going since my old gaming buddies in KC have all moved off and turned into codgers. I do have a couple nephews who regularly ask but one's age limits the options in that case. I plan on selling the home in the next few years and moving back to Jed Clampett-land, where some of my old buddies still have Peter Pan Syndrome like I do. Could probably find some regular games then.
I recently picked up a few new titles. Some for me, one for playing with family of various age ranges. The latter being the reprint of Vlaada Chvatil's Prophecy
. Much like Talisman
but without the annoying Roll-To-Move mechanic and more interesting gameplay in general.
In the process of painting the rest of the heroes in my Descent 2nd Edition
set (excellent game system, worthy of the hype) since I'm getting the Co-op (aka solitaire) variant cards printed for use with the ongoing campaigns. Basically turning it into a solo combat-oriented RPG. I also have the Star Wars version on order .. more painting! Broke down and invested in a wet pallet with the regular painting schedule.
