    General chatter - discuss anything here

    Anyone on here heading to Tabletop Gaming Live next weekend? I won't be, but I'm curious for future reference whether it comes close to the UKGE in terms of scale or quality.

    Yep, I've taken the bait on this one too, particularly because it scales infinitely (when you have free colour photocopying at work) which will make it perfect for my games club at school (I run it, I'm not a schoolkid!).

    8th golden hero earned. Now I have no choice but to play Druid solidly until Christmas - any inspiration for a way to do this without hating myself?
  4. It's bloody great, and the expansion genuinely improves it still further.

    Ah, the joy of idiots in co-operative Tavern Brawls. It was his turn and he had lethal to finish off the pinata, and decided to deliberately kill me instead. Moron.

    Had something happen to me today that I've personally never seen before in several years of playing. Playing Rogue vs Mage, I have definite lethal on the board next turn, but I am on 2 health. Opponent is top decking, so he might pull a Fireball or Frostbolt and kill me. Or he might not and he is dead. He floats his unplayed card in front of me right until the last second of his rope just to see whether I'll randomly concede. It was (obviously) no use to him, but does that strategy ever work? Is anyone that daft?

    UK Games Expo

    A lovely chilled weekend. Having been warned by @strawdonkey about the entry queues on Friday, we breezed straight in at 9.30 on Saturday! Daughter came in top half of 7WD tournament, just pipped by @SimonC. The prize pools do seem to be a bit crap this year (although of course the prizes aren't the point ) - last year she got a load of lovely metal coins and other 7WD swag for coming in the top bracket. My only other gripe about the tournament was that they only allowed about 20 minutes for lunch, which meant no Meat Shack for us Found a copy of Stronghold, which I've been after for a while. Played Dragon Castle which Mrs Padster also really enjoyed, so that's a definite purchase when it eventually comes out. Enjoyed Photosynthesis but there were none left to buy by late this afternoon so that goes on my general wishlist. Will also definitely be backing MicroBrew when that kickstarts later in the year. Highlight for us was coming very late to the Pandemic party and absolutely loving it! We only played it because we tinkered with the app when we had 10 minutes to spare on Saturday, but a full game (ending of course in horrible viral oblivion) today led to a cheap purchase.

    Just randomly spotted the back of my head (bald patch and all) playing Barenpark last year on the Expo website front page Note in particular the "ah, bless her" expression of the woman on the right, watching my 12-year-old daughter quietly getting ready to thrash us all.

    German version I'm afraid And yes, they do provide copies to play with for the 7WD tournament! We brought our own last year as we weren't sure.

    I might have a go at the Bring & Buy this year, got a few things to offload. If anyone feels like making me an offer to pick up any of the below before Saturday then feel free. Will I have to queue for ages to check stuff in on Saturday morning if I've registered everything online? Schotten Totten Arboretum ...and then, we held hands Welcome to the Dungeon Hengist

    How bizarrely pointless.
