DooM the Board Game

     A very fun and mini heavy game. DooM the Board Game. Plays like the first revision of Descent: Journeys into the Dark. In matter of fact, DooM was Fantasy Flights first game that featured those mechanics. People loved how it played so they then made a new IP that they owned and set it in the Runebound (another fantastic game) fantasy world.

     Back to DooM, the game plays 3 marines trying to survive a host of demons and zombies that are controlled by a demon lord per se. Not going to talk too much about the mechanics this time around but did want to state that I will be playing through the game and turning the events into a written story. The game features 10 scenarios so I will make it like 10 chapters. I believe this will be a fun little project and can not wait to let you the readers enjoy the finished product and tell me what you think.

See You Soon

Some Good Games -UnPlugged-

   Hello all the great people that read these entries, let’s talk about a few board games that I have fallen in love with. I will summarize in this post and then spend the next couple of posts in detail about each game.

   Last Night On Earth – Not much of a zombie fan but I must admit that this game does a great job at creating an 80’s zombie flick into a board. The way they did all the visuals for the game and all of the filler text for the scenarios are campy like an 80’s flick and it feels good. You have a zombie player and 1-4 players that play as the heroes. The mechanics I feel are fun to play on both ends. The minis for the heroes and zombies look great.

   Zombies!!! – I know, another zombie game. Pros. This game is inexpensive and comes with a ton of minis. 6 heroes and 100 zombies to be exact. The game itself is fun, very open to being modded easily and has a lot of fun expansions that add a lot of replay value to the game.

   Descent: Journeys In The Dark – Solid game mechanics, well told story for scenarios, amazing minis for all the heroes and monsters. This is a great example of an RPG in a box. Each time you play it does feel epic and whether you as the heroes succeed or fail the story still goes on but does change depending on each outcome. Price point it’s not too bad but still is a little pricey. Descent also has a lot of expansions that give new stories, heroes and enemies.

Like I said, I will go over these in better detail in a few days.

Thanks again for reading J

Board Games Happened

     Can’t put an exact date on it but my wife and I started playing board games. And when I say play I mean a lot. It started with Betrayal and Pandemic. We then went out to buy Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert. Those four games gave us tons of fun but we kept getting new ones for different themes, play styles and mechanics. Since I love minis, I was attracted to games like the D&D Adventure System and Descent: Journeys Into the Dark. We even came to love some zombie survival games like Zombies!!!, Zombiecide and Last Night on Earth.

     We have a great amount of fun with our new found love and I will be writing more about our play throughs, adventures and our near survivals. I will also go over and show pics of the terrain I have created and minis that I paint. Sorry I will not go into that too much right now but I want to give all of you the basic direction I will start to go into with this blog. Music and video games will still happen, but I believe that my creativity went a little more towards board games and mini creation.

Thank You all for reading  J
