Bugs Update: Recent Topics & Main Menu (11 Dec 2020)

Main Menu drop down bug has been fixed. You may need to clear your cache to pick up the new code.
Recent Topics paging, uploading images and preview bugs require a patch which has not yet been released.

× Welcome to one of the oldest board game communities on the Internet. That may sound like hyperbole but it really is true.

We are really happy to have you here. Unfortunately, being online we can't bond with you over a game so you'd know right away how happy we are to meet you. For now, you'll just have to take our word for it.

This site has always thrived on lively discussion and spirited but civil debate. We hope that newcomers here will find a welcoming atmosphere where game enthusiasts of all levels of experience and commitment will have something to add to the conversation. You never need to prove your “gamer cred” here. Whether you have been playing board games for a few months or a few decades; whether you have a huge collection or a small one; whether you have been a member here for years or just joined today – your opinion is valued here.

We know that it can be intimidating to jump into a new community and want to assure you that this is NOT the kind of forum where people will tell you that you posted something in the wrong place, or that you should have found an existing thread on the topic, or that you shouldn’t have resurrected an old thread.

So if you find a thread or an article discussion that interests you, whether it is old or new, feel free to jump in. Want to discuss a specific game or board gaming related topic just start a new topic. If you don’t know which forum to put it in, just make your best guess (we really don’t care all that much. It’s easy enough for a moderator to move it or merge it, if necessary).

A good place to get started is by introducing yourself in the “New Members Introduce Yourself” thread (below) or by telling us what you have been playing in the “What BOARD GAME(s) have you been playing?" thread ( therewillbe.games/forum/35-mos-eisley-ca...ave-you-been-playing ).

Have fun, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Hey All! I'm Chris from Everything Epic Games!

Hey Everybody!

As a huge lover of "Ameritrash" I'm very happy to have found this Site! I got a referral from a friend from SixPence Games who told me I'd really enjoy it and the commentary on "My Kind of Game"

Some of my Favorite games are: Arkham Horror, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Tales of Arabian nights, Mice and Mystics, Agents of Smersh, Wiz-War, Wrath of Ashardalon and other WotC games, Fortune and Glory, Elder Sign, Zombicide which I consider a Miniature/Ameritrash Game :P, Battlestar Galactica, Avalon (the resistance) Coup, Shadows over Camelot ... and MORE lol... I just started listing like a loon...

Sorry about that...
Anyways ... A little more about me :P since this is an Introduce yourself ZONE: ... I am a Teacher of Reading at a Special Ed School... by Day... and by night... Game Designer and Publisher ... I just finished my first game Secrets of the Lost Tomb which is the culmination of all the great games that I love (Listed Above) and of course a lifetime of Cool Action Adventure Movies! We're on boardgamegeek any my website everythingepicgames com (And on Kickstarter) if you feel like checkin' it out...

I really look forward to chatting about Board Games...especially ones with THEME!!! and STORY!!! .... the ones the Europeans Hate... like COOPERATIVE GAMES ! LOL..... anyway... Hope to hear from some of you folks soon and I'll start posting when I can! ... (Things be hectic on the ole KS) so once that is finished I'll be able to post a ton more!

Anyway! Talk to You Folks SOON!

---Chris

Welcome to the Fort.

Personally, I find that the most interesting reading and discussions is in the Articles section of the Fort. I particularly like the Analysis Section

Rants and Raves is also fun, particularly the Rants.

It was that awful euro-y 4X space game the came out a few years back. The one Matt Loter dislikes with a passion.

Of course I know what a friggin ellipse is. As the guy didn't draw any ellipses, I'm assuming that there is another meaning that I am unaware of.
