Rusty Gamer - New to Board

Postby arenat » Wed Sep 07, 2016 11:15 pm

Hello,

I've been inactive since Danger Planet closed, and my kid lost interest in Pirates, Magic, Starship Troopers, etc.
Well he's working now, so I have a chance to rejoin my hobby...

I'm a big fan of boardgames, Heroquest, some of the Catan issues, illuminati... also fond of fighting zombies.

looking for occasional outings - to try and regain some of those game skills that have atrophied. I also enjoy makin' and paintin' particularly scenery.

-regards
Tom

Welcome to the boards and welcome back to gaming! :) We're mostly a miniature gaming group... Malifaux, 40k, some other games like Blood Bowl, Flames of War, 9th Age, etc etc etc. Those first two are the most popular, but amongst us all you'll generally find someone playing everything even if they play it rarely. :)

We've also been known to do some board gaming outings as well.

Heroquest! I'm a Zargon man as well. I have brought this out recently in my adult life. I even made my own dungeon board out of dental plaster. I did the same for Space Hulk.

i wanted to come by tonight, but was worn out by extra HOUR + commute just getting through brandeis due to road construction.

Where do people get their game supplies around here? (other than internet) any storefronts left? i'm in Waltham.

So there's a Warhammer store opening in Brookline soon, but that's kind of out of the way. I go to Comicazi in Davis for a good number of gaming things, and I used to go to the Compleat Strategist on Comm Ave a lot. Other than that, it's pretty much all online for me.

I like Comicazi in Davis Sq., too. Their gaming selection is broad, but shallow.

Hobby Bunker in Malden carries almost everything. I go there a lot, and they usually have what I need for minis, paint, modeling supplies, terrain, etc.

Club members do a lot of online business with The Warstore, too. http://www.thewarstore.com/ We've always been happy with them.
