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 everyone,

Figured I'd start hanging out here after spending a few years on BGG. Gets a little uptight over there sometimes. Anyway, a little about me...

Music and comics are my two main interests outside of games. I love late 70's punk/new wave, early 70's Rolling Stones, The Who, the Replacements, Husker Du, alt-country stuff like Uncle Tupelo and lots more.

As far as comics go I've cut way back but I'm currently into Saga, Sex Criminals, Hawkeye and Batman. My all-time faves include Morrison's Animal Man, Lee/Kirby Fantastic Four and Batman: Year One. I'm also a sucker for classic JLA and anything with Kyle Baker.

I like board games where my friends and I can be bastards to each other and laugh about it later. Wiz-War, Cosmic Encounter, Neuroshima Hex!, Runewers, Blood Bowl: Team Manager, Cyclades and Kemet are at the top of the list currently. When I play with my wife we like Knizia's Lord of the Rings, X-WIng and Innovation.

I'm a huge Star Wars guy and can't wait for my kids to see the new ones so they can be just as excited about it as I was as a kid when the originals were released.

Hope to talk to you guys soon!

Ah, BGG. BGG is to Christmas as the Fort is to the Island of Lost Toys.

Noticed your avatar. Are you indeed from The Greatest City on Earth (or its lesser counterpart, Minneapolis)? If so, did you go to the Replacements show at Midway Stadium last year?

Please prepare yourself for the music portion of the entry exam by familiarizing yourself with the following bands:

1) Satan's Rats
2) The Cuddly Toys
3) Hirax
4) Liquid Liquid
5) Inside Out
6) Zero Le Creche
7) Crisis
8) The 101ers
9) Cold Crush Brothers
10) Q Lazzarus

You're looking pretty good on the comics front- you name-checked Animal Man and a couple of other great books. We'll work on that Saga problem.

Welcome!

Yeah I'm a Minneapolis guy. You must be from St Paul? You guys all have the same Minneapolis complex. I had to miss the Mats show for a wedding. What can you do?

You ever go to the Fantasy Flight event center or the Source? St Paul does have better game stores...

Damn, that's a hell of a list. I know about the 101'ers from liking the Clash. Love late 70's glam like Cheap Trick and T. Rex and so I like the Cuddly Toys and I know Q Lazzarus but you got me on the rest. 3 out of 10 is horse shit but you've given me something new to do on Spotify and that's always a good thing.

No love for Saga? I liked the first dozen issues or so a lot but I admit it's gotten a little old. I still think it's decent but I'm kind of reading it just to see it through more than anything.

Welcomes to the Fort.

I read the first Saga trade and when a bounty hunter showed up right away I showed it the door. Jesus, enough with the fucking bounty hunters.
