  • Table Gamers

    Welcome to TG's Table Gamers social group! Here I hope we can come together to offer each other recommendations for games to play, offer help, and perhaps organize into gaming groups IRL.

    Enjoy your stay!

    To start I'd like to point you to a particularly useful internet community that I frequent.

    www.boardgamegeek.com

    This place has an amazing database of boardgames, has collection lists, trading block for your games, forums, rankings (according to user ratings) and a plethora of user created content for all but the most obscure games.

    I've used the recommendations off this site many times to make decisions about games to purchase and collect rules updates/variants to freshen up some of my existing favourites.

    I'm registered as 'ThaDoc' there if you're interested in joining their community, I'm sure if you have a penchant for boardgaming that you will find this site as useful as I have.

          Great group idea! I'm a huge fan of games like Betrayal at the House on the Hill, and Arkham Horror. I also play card games like Munchkin, Gloom, Guillotine, etc...

            Yah, I've been gaming for about 10 years now...BGG member for 8 or so...2manygames is my profile, with game collection listed I think. (about 40+) I just bought the newest edition of Settlers of Catan from Mayfair, and am very pleased. Really like the new graphics for the land tiles.
            My favorites are Princes of Florence, Ticket to Ride, Web of Power, most Reiner Knizia games, Traders of Genoa and the Carcossonne series. My favorite place to buy is Funagain Games in my old hometown of Ashland, OR. Lots of reviews (a few written by myself!) Claim to fame: Predicted Tikal would win the SDJ...:)
            Mostly play with my 2 kids these days, but miss the adult game-nights we used to have several years back...

              I've also just recently purchased the newest verison (Version 4 I believe) of Settlers. I love the plastic organizer but I can't help feeling that the tiles and chits were skimped on a bit. I was introduced to the game with Version 3 and the island tiles felt heartier. Perhaps it's just the gloss finish the tiles have or maybe I've just been spoiled by Fantasy Flight Games 'Big Box' games.

              I picked up World of WarCraft: The Boardgame and the Shadows of War expansion about a month ago and I must say that FFG has really got the mass production of plastic miniatures down to a fine art. The cardboard pieces are magnificent and they just feel like if they were handled over a long period of time they won't degrade that heavily.

              Since getting WoW:TBG I've played two games with my sister using the 2-player co-operative variant found at BGG. It's been a blast both times (Lord Kazzak BARELY defeated in the second round of combat, and Nefarian schooled by attrition in the first round). Hopefully if I can get to Hamilton this weekend to visit my University buddies we can get a 6-player game going as the rules intended and I can better justify the 9 I gave it on BGG. ^_^

                Out of curiosity does anyone play Warhammer 40K? It's truely an excellent game, and really fun too.

                  Not like I've downloaded any of the codexes... >.> really... <.<
                  40k definitely looks like something I could get into AFTER I finish getting my Vampire Counts WFB army collected, assembled and painted.

                  On a semi-related note, if you happen to be a PSP owner, Warhammer 40k Squad Command published by THQ is a blast to play. It's not as in-depth as a 40k grognard might want, but it *is* quick and easy to pick up and shoot some chaotic heathens with.

                  Which race did you go with SKsniper128? If given the choice I'd go Eldar myself.

                    I have a full IMP and Dark Angel Army. I have been table top gaming since '82 but have really been doing 40k since '96.

                    I have sold most of my Blood Angels that were fully painted on Ebay. But got some good $$$.

                      I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~

                        Very nice painting job on that model HAZMAT.

                        So this weekend I did end up going out of town to meet some friends and we did get a 4-player game of WoW:TBG going. It was interesting to say the least. I was reined in by my teammate three times when we could have completely crushed the alliance (we were horde) almost guaranteeing a win for us. Unfortunately because we didn't PK the two alliance characters they were allowed to catch up from an early couple of deaths and eventually went on to win the game killing Lord Kazzak before we could find him first.

                        It was a little anti-climactic since Lord K. was absolutely rocked in the first round of combat. I'll definitely play the game again, but perhaps with some house rules and a change of tactics. We (the horde) were superiorly geared at lvl 4 (of five possible) and I think we could have started searching for the boss sooner than the alliance were ready. Pretty much either being Geared out and lvl 4, or lvl 5 and mediocre gear is good enough to fight the end boss.

                          It's great to hear that WH40K has an honourable mention here. I've been gaming with Games Workshop since I was 12 years old (18 years ago). I've worked in their retail stores in England as well as here in Canada and have even been the manager of their Maidenhead branch while I was at university. I've collected Space Marines and Eldar for WH40K aa well as High Elves and Chaos for WHF. I don't have any pictures of my painted models yet (don't have a digital camera yet) but when I do I'll post my Eldar Farseer that came 4th in the 2004 Golden Demon Awards.

                            I used to collect WFB, empire and ogres then there were the necrons. Did decently in some Irish tournaments but never took it any futher.

                              How much farther do you have to take it from collecting an army, painting it with a semblance of unity, and carrying it to a tournament though? ^_^
