GenCon Post No. 3a: Clarifying What I Came Home With

I realized in my last post that I wasn't clear what it was I brought home with me.

Here's the full list of what I purchased at GenCon and what I ordered after seeing/hearing about it at GenCon:

Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game. I've played it three times, now. It's growing on me. Some scenarios are harder than others, but the game itself has maintained its Fun Level. I expect to play this one regularly for a while.

Torg: Revised and Expanded. I've always had a soft spot for Torg. I'm looking forward to 2E, even though I'm not a fan of the West End Games d6 System.

Battlestar Galactica: The Roleplaying Game, along with the quick-start guide. I also purchased the Demon Hunters quick-start and their DVD (which included a print and some temporary tattoos).

After seeing them or hearing about them at GenCon, I bought or ordered:
The Lizardmen for Battleground: Fantasy Warfare. I would have bought these anyhow, but GenCon made me aware that they were now available.

Dark Heresy (the Warhammer 40k RPG) has been ordered.

Shadow Nations has been ordered, as have a number of supplements for Apophis Consortium's OTHER game, Obsidian: Age of Judgement. These guys have really good e-mail customer support, which is something I need to talk about sometime.

Hopefully this clears up any question about what I spent my money on.

    Eric, please bring the Umenzi and LIzardmen decks to the game shop on Wednesday... I would like to take a peek.

    While I'm a big fan of BSG, based on my fiddling with the Serenity game (using the same system), I doubt I'll pick it up. The system just doesn't work for me... too many dice.

    See you on Wed.


  2. Brian,

    I ordered the Lizardmen. :) If Brian has them on Wednesday, I'll pick 'em up on Wednesday.

    I'll bring the Umenzi with me.
