@RogerRoger No worries.
Battle Crashers looks pretty good I think. The miniatures look really good!

Formula D is a decent game. It comes with a simple and advanced method of play, so is pretty accessible. I can't think that they'd make a Sonic game too complicated though.

@KALofKRYPTON I've been surprised by a few licenced games before but you're right, Sonic and stupidly-complex gameplay wouldn't really match. There just might be a lot of things to keep track of.

It'll be tempting not to keep the miniatures out of the box!

I am not a great fan of tabletop games. The only one I really enjoy is Munchkin. Also, I've recently known that there are nearly 10 variations of the game, even with kittens! The only problem with Munchkin is that it may last too long, especially if you are playing with new people and have to explain the rules.

@nasty_hamster So long as it can be wrapped up within the time of a game of Talisman (my longest was 7 hours), it's not too long

@KALofKRYPTON Ok, Talisman wins)
I think the longest Munchkin I've ever played was nearly 6 hours.

@nasty_hamster Walking talking Jesus! That seems like a very long game of Munchkins! That Talisman game had 5 players, running every expansion we had and only 2 Talismans (you need one for the endgame).

@KALofKRYPTON Our game had 8 players and we were arguing about the rules for 1 hour nearly. So nothing strange.

@nasty_hamster Sounds like playing any variation of Legendary with my uncle...

@KALofKRYPTON There always should be a person in this kind of games who's sure the rule you're following is wrong and he considers it his duty to find out the truth. Classic.

@Kidfried I get bored too fast. After I've played once, I don't want to do it again as I know all the rules.
Not the same with video games btw as they have 'story' which is changeable during the game.

Anybody played Cyberpunk 2020? I'll admit, I'd never heard of it before the CDPR game reveal because I wasn't really that much into tabletop games. This one really fascinates me, though.

@ApostateMage Never played it - it's very well regarded though.

If I'm honest, as with video games - deep RPGs don't really do much for me. While I love the D&D notions of keeping the same game going for years, I just don't have the attention span!

Thanks to a great article/puff piece on Kotaku - I now know that Warhammer: Kill Team is a thing...

So, a friend of mine is leaving for pastures new and their house of trouser are going their separate ways.

This has prompted a planned 'final' game of Talisman.

We're intending to run an 8/9 player game of 4th Edition with all of the expansions (well, at least all of them that won't break the game used together).
We're projecting a 12 hour runtime, though I'm planning on winning within 4

Well - been a while here hasn't it?!

Regarding my last post - I did win, though it took more than 4 hours and we played some pretty crazy house rules for streamlining. It was a good time. EDIT: One of those house rules being a vertical table...

But that was then, and this is now (when?), and there's new version of the rather rare Dune table top board game coming out this month.

Long story short - I must have it!

I watched a pretty lengthy review of this new version of the game. Having never played the original or any of it's revisions, expansions or fan works - it really does come across as the most thematically accurate licensed games I've ever seen. I've just started the final main sequence Dune novel, I've had a blast reading them and this game really seems to evoke the spirit of the first novel - and sentiment of the series whole. Spice, factions, alliances, secret plans, Shai Hulud, traitors... Really can't wait.

@KALofKRYPTON bleedin heck that talisman game is huge!

The dune game looks cool. I love the film and the old Westwood games. I've got the novel but haven't had time to read it yet. I might show the game to my board gamerly inclined friend to see if he's interested but generally his wall of board games doesn't include many if any licensed games unfortunately.

@ralphdibny We used pretty much every expansion apart from the Cataclysm! 😂

I'd very much recommend reading Dune (and the entire main sequence, I'm debating reading the prequels/offshoots), certainly if you'd like to get the most out of the game. I love the film - for all of it's issues, after reading the book it's clear to see that it must have been such an overwhelming undertaking, it gets plenty right, but it misses so much and there are a few changes made for screen that really don't sit very well. The mini series did better, but looked pretty awful and the cast wasn't all that great either.

My roommates and I started a weekly D20 campaign a few weeks ago. We Actually found a Fallout PnP RPG that was created about 10 years ago, however due to Bethesda being jerks, the company had to pull all references to Fallout at the 11th hour so the game became known as Exodus. Sadly it's really hard to find the books for the game due to it not selling well years ago. I suspect because the Fallout references got pulled from it and naming it Exodus which makes it sound like some sort of Christian RPG rather then a post apocalyptic one had something to do with the poor sales. However due to the internet we were able to find PDFs of them.

For all intents and purposes it is Fallout just without the Fallout names like Super Mutants are called Atomic Mutants and Rad Roaches are Giant Roaches and Power Armor is Exodus Armor etc.

Currently we are traveling from Almagordo to Las Vegas because my character is a postal Rider and is on a mission to deliver a secret package. While traveling we came.across a slave carvan which we stopped and rescued the slaves, and are now exploring an old military base (at least that's what we think it it) from the old world.

So far I am really enjoying it and it's great playing a Tabletop RPG again.

@KALofKRYPTON it's in my backlog along with 9 months of comics, hundreds of games and my household chores lol (oh and the new series of archer)

The film blew me away, probably because it's just a barrage of information and it's so fascinatingly confusing. Like one minute you have narration, the next minute you hear what someone's thinking, then someone's talking psychically (or with their inner voice or whatever it is), not to mention all the regular dialogue. I love the cast and their characters and the bene Gesserit are fascinating and I especially love the main older one (I forget her name now).

I really want a t shirt adorned with a sillouhette of Kyle machlachlan, arm raised with the words 'I am the kwizats haderach" across it. Sadly, no such t shirt exists lol.

I had to read the wiki page after I watched the film just to help me process all of it. So I am looking forward to the book when I eventually get around to it!
