If you think running a kingdom is hard work, building on is even tougher. What makes it worse is when the neighbouring kings and Queens are trying to steal the prime real estate before you do.
Last Saturday the girls were out of the house for the afternoon. This meant Ronin and I had some time to kill. I had planned to put up some shelving in my study (I have games on my chair and floor!) but instead I decided to crack open the First Strike Warhammer 40K starter box and see if Ronin would like it.
I’m getting back into the game and it feels good! Not that I’ve not been playing games, but I’ve not been playing as much or as often as I usually do. I did not realise that I was “missing” a part of my hobby until this weekend. Studies for the first 6 months of the year then being extremely ill has had me out of sorts but this weekend I started getting out again. I took Ronin along to a Blood bowl tournament that I managed to organise at Battle Wizards.
ICON 2017 has come and gone. For some it was lackluster, for others it was an absolute blast. I thoroughly enjoyed it, I would call it a blast but I had someone coughing on me for over an hour and I pick up a bug which I’m still trying to get over… It’s also the reason for no post last week (I’m sorry)
I’ve been looking at lighter games over the past few months. Things to bring out at Family Games Night that will be easy to teach and explain. So the term Gateway often springs to mind. Gateway games are usually used to introduce new people the hobby. Ethnos intrigued me. It seemed light but a step above gateway.
