Embracing yourself

As one who enjoys boardgames like the not so geeky Ticket To Ride, I frequent game stores. These game stores usually have tables set up so that gamers can set up and battle little armies consisting of Tolkeinesque creatures. Upon seeing those folks, I always thought "What sort of person plays those games?" Well apparently, me. Of late I have been playing Battlelore, an addictive game where armies of medieval soldiers and....Tolkeinesque creatures do battle.

It has all the hallmarks of a great game. It's easy to learn, you can play a game in under an hour and as soon as you are done you want to play it again. If you want to learn more, watch the video review of the game on Boardgames with Scott.

My original title was something like, that or "Ahhh, sister, if you won't turn to the nerd side, then perhaps she will."
