GW is always the tabletop king in my area. My Tau haven’t seen the table in a long time. The last thing I played was Age of Sigmar. I fielded my L̶i̶z̶a̶r̶d̶m̶e̶n̶ Seraphon. I got rid of a small painted High Elf force and got my Skaven back from the painter. My Khaldoon overlords are done and on their way back from the painter.
I’ve always been fascinated by the staggering amount of tabletop wargames available. I’ve always been interested in “different” games and systems. I’ve never been able to find regular opponents.
I stopped in to my FLGS yesterday and inquired about what people have been playing. The small interest we had in Bolt Action, FOW and other Historicals has dried up.
I just started playing this today:
Since I can never find opponents for war-based boardgames and I’m too dumb to figure out vassal, Matrix Games library has become very attractive. Based on what they currently have to offer, this is what I would like to play:
Cold war gone hot sounds awesome to me. The scale of play has me interested on a tactical level as well.
I’ve always wanted to play Epic 40k. This seems even better. A much smaller investment and finding opponents is easy.
I had an old Dell XPS laptop that’s about 10 years old at this point. I decided to wipe it completely and resurrect it as a dedicated retro gaming PC.
After getting that done, I hit my GOG library and installed:
The Journeyman Project 1-3
Alone in the Dark
Master or Orion 1-2
Might and Magic 3-6 + Xeen
Temple of Elemental Evil
I’ve been playing this a lot. The graphics arent that great but it is an indie game. I really enjoy the story. Its really brought back a love of point and click games.
