Last Week With JADE: Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men


It has been almost two weeks since I got back from my vacation to Victoria, British Columbia, and things have been a little slow. While Dave and I managed to play a few rounds of Mr. Jack and On Ward to Venus, and Elijah and I played a game of Michtim for my younger sister's birthday, there hasn't been much in the way of gaming here at JADE. All of us have been hit with loads of work in our professional lives, and gaming -unfortunately- has gone by the way side.

However, there has been a lot of planning and preparation. Elijah and I spent some time conceptualizing a renaissance era werewolf campaign in 2nd ed AD&D. Adam and I are are planning an epicv all-rules included 1st ed AD&D game. There is talk of hosting a D&D game with Jeff and a few of his buddies from work. And of courtse there are tons of board games new and old left to play!

Our Source book for the renaissance-werewolf campaign.
Here is JADE's current to do list (many of theses games we have played, but not as a group):

Tammany Hall
The Battle at Kembel's Cascade
Terra Mystica
On Ward to Venus
Kolejka
Twilight Imperium
Runewars
Sid Meier's Civilization
Avalon Hill's Civilization
Mage Knight
Caverna the Cave Farmers
Star Trek Attack Wing
Justice League Strategy Game
Axis and Allies
Space Empires
Cave Evil
Dune the Board Game
Struggle of Empires
Settlers of Catan
El Grande
Risk 2210 AD (one of the few risks worth playing)
 
It seems our fall will be full of board games, and I really have no idea what we are going to play next! If I were to guess, Terra Mystica, The Battle at Kembel's Cascade and Tammany Hall, will be fairly high on the list.

Dave and I also took the plunge last week and decided to bring one of our other hobbies to the table top by collecting DC Comics HeroClix figures. We still have no idea how to play yet, but we are very excited about it! Elijah and Jeff have also agreed to get on board, so there should be some good battle in the future!

We heard the arguments that Marvel is better. We just like DC more.
There will also be a couple of table top RPGs here and there as we try to finally finish Interstellar Exports, and start some of the smaller campaigns we have planned. It will all depend on everyone's schedule.
