Saturday game: Recruiting
With the Baroness and the Girl out of town, I had a rare chance at a Boy's weekend. My son has already created a rather large RPG group, so I thought it time to show them tabletop wargaming.
A great intro is DUST. The rules are simple, the miniatures appeal to the video gamer teens, and its a lot of fun.
I couldn't be more wrong. What I got were very thoughtful plans, very deliberate actions, and possibly some new recruits to the hobby.
Normally I wouldn't have unpainted miniatures touch the table, but I have a large collection and not so much time. No one seemed to care, and it lent a old school toy soldier vibe to the whole thing. A short game went long into the night, as neither side would surrender. I got alot of "that was awesome" the next morning, a generally warm feeling inside.
