Sweet, Sweet Kingsport Horror.



A new expansion for my favorite (and only) board game of utter complexity (over 700 individual pieces counting cards, which comprise about 20 different decks) has finally arrived, and I have played it, and it is sweet. Kingsport Horror adds another section of map to the game that I already can barely fit on most tables I have played it on (in order to play with the Dunwich and Kingsport expansions together, some people have built their own tables).


The board including BOTH expansions.

We played on Friday and on Saturday, and both games were quite fun. First getting devoured by Eihort, and secondly defeating Nyarlathotep with the help of Bast. The group I played with on Saturday is UNDEFEATED. They are getting cocky, so it's time to bust out the King in Yellow expansion, which up until this time I have not touched. First, because it is supposed to make the game harder, and secondly because it terrifies me. CTHULHU F'TAGN!

In other Nerd News, Dungeons and Dragons has released yet another edition which completely rewrites the rules of the game yet again, causing many retainers to be destroyed by gnashing of teeth. I have had the pleasure of glancing over the new rules and they are exceedingly streamlined and efficient, and dare I say. . . elegant? There is one set of rules that applies to all situations, gone are the many exceptions, charts, and complicated tables. Each class now has more to do so they are no longer pigeonholed into being just a healer or a guy that casts spells. I don't agree with everything done to the game, and it makes me sad that Gygax will have to rise from the dead so soon after going to his rest in order to cast a mighty spell of chartstorm on Wizards of the Coast, but all in all I would have to say it's a way better edition than 3rd.

I rolled a natural 20 BITCH!
