Last Night's Game Was AWESOME!

I want to send a big thanks to Tim Shorts and the gang who let me join in their play test game last night. They are an awesome group, and Tim ran an awesome game. Lots of spontaneity, good laughs ("Quadar," "Fast-rising bread," "I slap them with my left hand," "15%") and a fun story to boot. These guys know how to have a good time, and they made me feel really welcome. So to Tim, Rob, Ken and Dan, I say thanks again! I had a blast and I'm really looking forward to next week's game.

  3. Sounds like fun. Did you guys get to meet in person or was this done via the interwebz?

  4. Used Skype for the talkie parts and Fantasy Grounds 2 for the playing part. No visual contact was made. I think that's best for all gamers concerned.

  5. Sounds like fun and the next best thing to gaming in person.

  6. Bard, it was great gaming with you and I am looking forward to tomorrow night. Having you in the Monday night group would be groovy. I think you would really enjoy GURPS...the way we play GURPS it feels like old school D&D mixed with Panzer Leader or Tobruk.

    1. Hey Ken, yeah me too. I am very keen on the idea of joining the Monday night group. I've actually already started looking at GURPS lite, just to get an idea. Once Tim's play test is done I'd love to give it a go. Logistically, I don't think I could commit to more than one night of gaming a week. But heck yeah, after the play test, I'm there!

      Plus, you had me at "old school D&D mixed with Panzer Leader." That'd be the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup of Games! :)

  7. I've been checking out "Two Up, One Back." I'm a huge WW2 history buff and was into AH games way back when.

    1. I didn't know you were a WW2 buff. I always loved the AH games -- I used to find them (as a rule) more playable and gamer- friendly than other companies' more strict simulation-oriented games.
