I would have written hello everyone, but my hand melted off.
It’s hot. Wow is it getting hot lately. Maybe it’s me, but it feels much hotter at 100 than it used to feel at 100. Like, much hotter. Like so hot that this is actually what happened to me while I was walking from the car earlier:
Okay, so just imagine the melting ice-cream was me and you’ll understand. What, it’s not like I have an actual image of a person melting. That would be disgusting!
Honestly, what are you thinking?!
So anyway… I’ll stop whining and move on.
In our efforts to find an old copy of Heroquest around, we instead found this other game, Dungeonquest. It’s not quite as story heavy, and doesn’t have anywhere near as many neat little miniatures and furniture, but it’s an interesting game. Hard. Very, very hard. Not difficult to learn, it’s just that you die a lot.
Actually, scratch that; you die constantly.
We have tried playing it with modified rules that let you continue even after you die, you just fall back to half health and lose some of your treasure, and we still haven’t even had one of us make it out alive in three games. Reviews online tell me this is actually really normal, that somewhere in the neighborhood of %10 of games end with someone living.
And yet it is still really fun!
Not as much story as Heroquest, and it will never take the place of that one, but it is a lot of fun and we got a great deal on it at a Half Price Books store, so it was definitely worth it for us.
Oh yeah, and I didn’t get a chance to post last week. Sorry about that. I went out of town on the 4th, then had family visit here the 6th and 7th, and this kind of threw me off. But the plus side was that I got to have a nice time with my family on the 4th, and we grilled and had some really good food. The 6th we took my wife’s family out to dinner, then on the 7th we visited a museum with them, and it was a really good time as well.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
