Looking to see if there are any fellow board gaming enthusiasts in the Killer Instinct Community!
When I was a kid my parents used to occasionally set up family board game nights, but at that time the games were more traditional; Sorry, Monopoly, Scrabble etc. I eventually grew tired of these games because they really got old after a while. I got into Magic: The Gathering for a while, but eventually stopped playing this as well. Years later my best friend introduced me to Warhammer Fantasy, and my love of wargaming began - I’ve played Warhammer Fantasy, then left that for Warhammer 40,000, and left that for my current wargame obsession, Warmachine/Hordes. I’ve also played Dungeons and Dragons, but not recently.
A few years back, I started investigating the realm of modern board games after experiencing a game of Last Night on Earth at my local hobby shop - this was a real eye opener, as I’ve since learned how fun, immersive, and enjoyable board games have become. I’ve since begun collecting board games as I learn about them, usually through a demo at my local store, the Tabletop youtube series, or the glorious black hole which is known as Kickstarter! These games have really cool miniatures and components, and make for a great way to get family and friends around a table to play something together, even if on first glance they might not think they would enjoy it, as my gaming group had to be practically forced to play Last Night On Earth, which was the first modern board game I purchased.
Board games are also great for when you have too many people to play a video game together, or are without power (camping or during a power outage)! I’d love to hear about your experience with board/wargaming, and your collections!
My current collection consists of:
Warmachine (Khador) and Hordes (Circle of Orboros)
Freeblades (Haradalen, Kuzaarik, and Trilian)
Munchkin (original set + expansions)
Cards Against Humanity
Shadows Of Brimstone - Kickstarter backed
Zombicide: Black Plague - Kickstarter backed
Last Night On Earth + expansions
Castle Panic (Munchkin edition)
Pandemic + two expansions
Wits & Wagers
King Of Tokyo
Lords of Waterdeep
Betrayal at House On The Hill
Dungeons and Dragons - Castle Ravenfell
Dungeons and Dragons - Wrath of Ashardalon
