Took a long drive around the Bay Area today, running errands from Gator Games to Fry’s Electronics to Game Kastle Fremont, and finally to Nelson’s place in El Cerrito for our Games Night, this time on International Tabletop Day.
I lost track of time at Game Kastle, and along with a traffic delay on 880N, I arrived a little later than I intended to, about 20 minutes after our scheduled start time.
Games were played, food was eaten, and I actually won in a game that I had never in the past.
The Giants lost again. Arrgh.
I’m behind on a couple of shows for the first time in a while. Arrow and tonight’s Doctor Who, I’m probably going to catch them on Sunday.
I’m hearing the siren’s call of some of my sports games again, but not enough to set one up. That may change, though.
The rules appear to be identical to Warfighter Modern, with changes appropriate to the time period. For example, there’s lots of different pistol/rifle ammo sizes in the modern version, but only one basic ‘bullet’ type in the WWII edition, called ‘Ammo ‘.
I looked at the available expansions, which I’m holding off purchasing because I’m told that there’s plenty of replay in the core box. If I were to get any of the expansions, I’d probably get the extra US, and UK card decks. Maybe the Germans, but I’d have to see if I don’t mind playing them. I really have no interest in the Russian and Polish expansions.
I’m not sure what the next couple of waves of expansions will be, but I’m hoping for Pacific Theatre card decks for the WWII game. As for the Modern setting, I really don’t know.
I hope to get a game play in sometime this weekend. Luckily the WWII Call of Duty figures were delivered to the office today.
And I may or may not start taking turn-by-turn notes in order to create a mission narrative for an after action report.
