Yesterday, I accepted the Six by Six challenge and discussed 3 miniatures games that I will play next year. I still have 3 more games. What are they?
Four Against Darkness
There are times when I just don't feel like dragging out the miniatures. In those times, 4AD is a great choice. It is a simple and quick dungeon crawl
I may not play it straight. Instead, I will probably continue experimenting with my card-based variant.
DC Rivals: Batman vs. Joker
After seeing the Killing Joke, my wife has become a huge Batman fan (actually, it's more correct to say that she's a Joker fan). Last month, while visiting the FLGS, she noticed this game, and had to have it.
DC Rivals is a 2-player deck-building card game. One player plays Batman and the other plays the Joker. Each player starts with a hand of weak cards, and then through game play can buy more powerful cards. Cards represent other heroes or villains, equipment, super powers, etc. Each card has a victory point amount. To win, garner the most VPs, or confront your opponent and defeat him in battle.
The game is incredibly easy to set up. It is supposed to be quick (30-40 minutes) but we usually go for over an hour. Still, we both enjoy the game.
I haven't made a decision yet for game 6. I have a couple of candidates but I'm going to keep this slot in reserve for now.
So there we have it. Now can I actually make it through the challenge? We shall see next year.
