So, with 5th edition being out a while now, I'm assuming everyone has left all their 4th ed. Stuff by the roadside by now. I know it's completely vanished from store shelves. I happen to love 4th edition, and wouldn't mind picking up some of the books I don't have already. Off the top of my head I currently own:

PHB 1 and 2
Monster Manual 1 -3
DMG
Martial Power 1
Eberon (I think)
Forgotten Realms
Open Grave


...and I think that's it. If anyone's made the switch to fifth and is looking to unload some books, let me know!

I'm also still looking for old Carcassonne expansions, and have a tiny bit of my M:tG collection that I haven't unloaded yet to get rid of.

Newest Blizzard game! I'm rocking both the PC and PS4 Editions for some stupid reason. Although I've mostly been gaming with a few peeps on PS4 every other night for an hour or so. Anyone looking for a group of mediocre-at-best players? I mostly just wanna group up with people who wanna have fun who don't care *too much* about winning and all that business.

I refuse to interact with the gaming community at large, because bleh. Ugh. Nope. Much easier to find decent people first then chill with them instead of having to wade through the online wasteland.

Archive of Marketplace Items / Looking to trade Carcassonne
« on: March 20, 2016, 10:06:18 PM »
Hi there everyone, I'm looking to trade my copies of the 2014/15 edition of Carcassonne and the first expansion (Traders & Builders) for anything from the 2012 edition instead. I won a copy of the base game during last  year's Carc league, and noticed that the copy of Traders & Builders was for the same edition. The rest of my Carc stuff is from the previous edition, so I'd prefer stuff that matches the tiles. I'm not sure which other expansions I really want, so I'm mostly interested in getting a copy of Traders & Builders and either some other expansions, or just a copy of the base game. (Nothing wrong with doubling up on the base tiles I guess)

Both games have been opened; the expansion has been played once, and I've simply examined the components from the base game, so everything is in pristine condition.

Archive of Leagues / X-Wing League Season 1 (Jan/Feb) Signup/Standings
« on: January 16, 2016, 11:12:57 PM »
Hi everyone! Really glad to see all the interest in starting a league. It looks like we're good to go, so I am now officially taking sign-ups from all interested parties. You can find all standings in this post as they are updated. To sign-up, just indicate you'd like to do so in this thread and include your real name. (First name at least, last initial if you don't like leaving your last name all over the place)

Players:

1.) Tyler "Tempest" P.
2.) Wade "Wade Kruse" K.
3.) Cory "Cordawg" H.
4.) Stewart "Sheldyn" L.
5.) Brent "CraftyBernardo" S.
6.) Derek "DCStyles" C.
7.) Adam Dodge
8.) Jem Lee
9.) Derek "Jesta" F.
10.) Bryce "Bryce Robinson" Robinson
11.) Robert Sveinbjornson
12.) Chris Roberts
13.) Brett "Rogue2"
14.) Devin
15.) Jameson
16.) Nick
17.) ...

Basic rules:
This will be a casual season, meaning squad size can vary from game to game. Standard 100 point squads are recommended, especially for evenings where we might not have enough time to finish epic games. However, if your opponent and yourself can agree to a set size and try finish your game in a timely fashion, you are welcome to build your team as you see fit. All players will be awarded 1 point for participating, and an extra 2 points (so 3 points total) for a win. You can record two games per week for your total standings. If necessary, we may look at having catch-up games in the interest of fairness. Other than that, it's recommended that you make a post on each event if you plan on attending so we know how many people will be at a given event, and so you can request a certain type of game/find an opponent ahead of time. I should be at most events, so if finding an opponent is a challenge for anyone, I'll try to help accommodate everyone as necessary.

Standings:
1. Sheldyn (32 Points)
2. Rob (31 Points)
3. Derek C (25 Points)
4. Tyler (22 Points)
5. Bryce (20 Points)
6. Wade (20 Points)
7. Dodge (18 Points)
8. Jesta (17 Points)
9. Brett (13 Points)
10. Devin (12 Points)
11. Brent (11 Points)
12. Cory (8 Points)
13. Jameson (8 Points)
14. Nick (5 Points)
15. Chris (3 points)


Entry Fee:

There is no entry fee for Season 1! Come out, fly casual! Have fun!

The three golden rules:
1.) Have fun!
2.) Be inclusive!
3.) Be social!

Duration:
First league night starts January 28th and the final day will take place February 27th.

Date/times/location:
Individual events will be posted/linked as they are confirmed, but the plan is every Thursday at Readers starting at 6pm, and every Saturday at Tramps starting at noon. Please note that all dates/times/locations are all subject to availability and as such may be changed from time to time. Keep checking the forums for details as they arrive!

Hi there, I noticed there was an X-Wing league sponsored by Tramps, and it just wrapped up a few days ago. I'm wondering if there is interesting in starting another one? Just got into the game a couple weeks ago, and I'd love to play it on a regular basis. I was going to suggest it for CC, but it kinda has a big footprint, so I figured it'd be best to do it at a store or something. I noticed FFG's website had some interesting info here: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/more/x-wing-organized-play-events/

Hey y'all, so apparently Macao by Stefan Feld has been out of print since like... 2009? I dunno. Anyways, I played it for the second time at PGX and I've decided I'd like to add it to my collection. I've been looking around online, and it seems like if I want it, I'll either have to pay around $100 or so plus shipping, or overseas for like $40 plus like, $80 in shipping. In either case, that's just way too high. If anyone has a copy they're looking to get rid of that isn't in terrible shape and all the components are there, I'd love to take it off your hands. Since it *is* out of print, I'm okay with paying a bit extra so long as it's in good shape.

I'd also offer trades, but I don't think there's a whole lot in my collection right now that anyone's really looking for. (That I want to get rid of, anyways)

Archive of Game Discussion / Legendary Challenge!
« on: July 25, 2015, 06:28:57 PM »
So, I had this idea for Legendary that could potentially be turned into a league in the future, but right now will exist as a fun challenge. I welcome anyone who has the game to join in. I'll note that I have all the expansions that currently exist, so if you don't it might be difficult to participate, but I have a work around for that. Kinda. The way it works is every week, I'm going to post up a Mastermind, Scheme and the villains/henchmen for that scheme. Anyone wants to participate submits a team, and you're locked into that team for the entirety of the challenge. To give a little bit of wiggle room, teams will consist of 7 super heroes. Each time you attempt a challenge, you can build your team from those 7 heroes. Once the challenge is up, you can attempt it at any time. I feel I should mention that one card in particular is extra important, and that's the 'new recruits' card from Legendary Villains; it's extremely useful and I play with it every game. It's the only card from Villains that'll PROBABLY be used for this current run of challenges, so if you don't have the expansion I'd recommend proxying it up. The basic details are that it costs (2) to recruit, has 1 fight and essentially reads: "Draw a card, then return new recruits back to the new recruit pile". It doesn't sound like much, but they're incredibly useful.

So this week, the challenge is pretty easy. It is:
Red Skull, Destroy the Helicarrier with Hydra, Masters of Evil, Radiation villains and Hand Ninjas and Sentinels for henchmen. We played with four players, so the numbers may need changing; if you're interested and you need to add enemy groups let me know and I'll suggest ones to add/subtract.

The score to beat is 27 points this week. Our currently unnamed team consists of: Mr.Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Angel, Emma Frost, Ice Man, Black Widow and we had Star-Lord sitting on our bench.


Please, feel free to join in, post your scores and submit any questions or comments you might have. If it turns out being fun, I may turn it into an actual league in the future. (Probably after summer at the earliest)

Archive of Game Discussion / Customized Play Mats?
« on: July 10, 2015, 02:53:33 AM »
Hey there, I'm wondering if anyone knows of a website or anyone local that makes custom play mats for games. I'm specifically thinking of for Marvel Legendary. The idea had in mind was a simple design that a spot that said "deck" or "library", one that says "play area", one that says "discard pile" and one that says "victory pile". I think it'd work best on a felt mat, like the newer games have, very similar to most mouse pads. (just bigger).

I think having something like that would make teaching the game (and really, you could it make universal for other deckbuilders) a lot easier, and it make it easier for newer players to understand.

Hi! So I've decided to throw a small board game con at my home on the weekend before my birthday. I need to make it public for a few different reasons, but I must mention that attendance is by invite only. HOWEVER! If you are looking for something to do that weekend AND I have gamed with you before, talk to me and I can probably give you an invite.

Here's the basics:
Things kick off Friday evening, then start again at 11am Saturday and Sunday. There is a cost for entry; $5/day (even Friday) or $10 for the ultra deluxe weekend pass! The proceeds go to paying for snacks and drinks; any extra will go towards our PWYF team. There'll be your standard fare of chips, pop, nuts, fruit, veggies etc, as well as BBQ burgers and hotdogs Saturday and Sunday. If there's anything you'd like to bring to grill up, or beverages (regular or alcoholic) please feel free!

As for the actual gaming, the plan is to have four tables going at once, which will be organized below. Any questions/Suggestions/requests ask away!

Scheduling format:

Start Time
Game Name
# of players
Estimated run time
BGG link or screenshot of game.


...I'll make it look good when I get home from work.

Video Games / Amiibos?

I'm curious to see how many people on here are collecting these nearly-pointless little statuettes. I've got about 17 now, myself, none of them all too rare (except maybe Toad?) and I'm looking to find some of the harder to get ones. Does anyone have a good place to find them at a decent price online? I've been looking, and foreign websites have been jacking up the price because they figured out there's a demand over here for them. That being said, I've found a few places with okay prices, and if people were interested at some point, I'd be cool with putting together a bulk order to see if it helps on shipping or not.

« on: August 18, 2014, 02:55:17 PM »
Alright everyone, I'd like to officially announce the Returners next '24 Hours to Play With Your Food' event: Booze and Boardgames! Borrowing on the typical steak night idea, we decided to turn things on their head a little and offer a night of good drinks, good food, and good times. In conjunction with my workplace, Slow Pub, I am offering tickets for $25 which will get you your choice of either the cocktail sampler, which is six, count 'em, SIX cocktails made from our own house spirits OR an appetizer sampler for anyone who doesn't like to drink, but would still like to support our team and this awesome cause. That's the first part. The fun part is that there will also be some light gaming action to be had! For those partaking in the alcohol, I'll be bringing a few light "pub friendly" games including, but not limited to: Snake Oil, Hanabi and Cockroach Poker. I may bring a few more typical games as well, and of course if people feel like it, they can bring their own games as well; I always take requests from my list, which can be found in my signature.

If there are any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.




List of games available:
Snake oil
Cards against humanity
Hanabi
Cribbage
wizard
Las Vegas
Munchkin (various expansions via Slow)
standard decks of cards
Dutch Blitz
Farkle
Carcasonne
Phase 10


That isn't the list of games I am bringing for sure. I'll also take requests. If you would like to bring/schedule a game, feel free to do so, and I will add it here.

I know this game is out of print, making it really hard to come by, and thus driving up its value. I think it's a must-have for my collection. I was looking online for copies, and they were a bit out of my range; if anyone has a copy that they'd be willing to part with for under $100, that'd be fantastic. Trades would also be acceptable, although I don't think I have much in my collection currently that's very desirable that I'm willing to part with.
