There Will Be Games

My game order arrived tonight. It was a belated Father's Day order. I was waiting for Kingsport to come out.

Detroit Cleveland Grand Prix. Father's Day gift for the Man. He needed something in the cupboard to counter the overwhelming girliness of my pink game. I taught him how to play, and we played one lap. Then I started feeling sick again, so we quit. Plus it isn't much fun as a two player. But it was enough for him to know he he likes it. He'll be teaching it to the band boys next band night.

I spent the rest of the evening on the sofa, drinking OJ and watching Strictly Ballroom, while punching and bagging. I usually save the chick flicks for band night, but I got special privileges tonight on account of being sick. Plus we watched Cloverfield last night, which was mostly lame. I just didn't give a shit what happened to any of those annoying characters. I was like hurry up and f'ing die already. Maybe if a big monster was chasing Antonio Vargas I'd care. Yikes, he's hot.

Quest for the DragonLords. Father's Day gift number 2. Showed this one to the Man a few years back, but he said no more long games with lots of little pieces that we won't be able to play. That was when our spawn was just a wee demon in constant motion. Now she's older and leaves us alone while she spends hours using up the cell phone minutes, and she doesn't stick little game bits in her nose anymore. So I showed QftDL to the Man again, and he said cool. But then it was out of print and I couldn't find it, but then it suddenly showed up in stock at SuperHeroGameLand, so I got it. The Man cracked this one open first thing, but then was all put out by the 40 pages of rules, which means I'm going to have to be the one to read the rules. Well, it was my turn anyway, since he did Memoir '44 Air Pack.

La Citta. I played this several years ago and remember liking it, but I can't remember much about it other than it felt like a micro civ building game. Plays in under two hours. Plays two player. Francie might like it. I think I got a misprinted token sheet, so I had to email RGG. So this one probably won't get played this week.

Kingsport Horror. Haven't even broke the shrink wrap. Punching and twisting out the figs for QftDL took up most of Strictly Ballroom, so I didn't get to the The Beast yet.
