With the holidays fast approaching, some great movies out (including a 12+ hour Lord of the Rings marathon) and having started graduated school, my gaming has dried up somewhat. However, as is tradition, I bought myself a little Christmas present -- Mr. Madison's War (GMT) and ASL Starter Expansion Pack #1.
I almost bought Crown of Roses, but with it being December 2012, I really wanted to buy an 1812 game during the war's 200th anniversary year, and Mr. Madison's War looked like the best of the bunch. The components looked good and honestly, I've never played a GMT card-driven game I didn't like, although there was one--the name escapes me now--that struck me as "more work than it's worth."
The other game I bought was the ASL Starter Expansion Kit #1. I used to really be into ASL, but when I needed to raise some cash, it was the first game that went ($300). I miss it, and when I saw this game on the shelf ("Everything thing you need to play ASL") I figured it would be a good way to get back into the game without plunking down a lot of money. ASL can be expensive.
Other than that, I've been playing Magic with my son and Pathfinder. I played DM for the first time in a long time and enjoyed it, although it is definitely more work than playing a character, that's for sure.
Hope everyone has a happy holiday season and I'll see you in 2013!
