Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)

Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.

× 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.

Nah, I met Ian at Trashfest. He is a game pimper extraordinaire and a nice dude. Welcome Ian!



Yup, that's my buddy Ian, whose pimped-out games I mentioned several times in the Trashfest write-up.

He was in hog-heaven at Trashfest...he games with a group of folks weekly who lean Euro, but he's all AT at heart.

Replied by SamL on topic New Members Introduce Yourself
Hi y'all, I'm your new AT-ambassador to northern Europe. That's a self-appointed title, but the position ain't that great either: it's lonely and lacking in warmth. Imagine going to a local group and suggesting a game of Cosmic Encounter, only to have it shunned as one of the few games the group just refuses to play. I found my way to F:AT maybe 6 months ago after seeing more and more references to it at TOS, and its influence on me so far has been to solidify AT as my preferred type of game. I've liked the banter and discussion I've read here enough to want to contribute, the first place online to produce such a desire in me since I gave up video games and associated forums.

Dammit! Why didn't I appoint myself AT-ambassodor of Northern Europe long time ago?

Anyways, welcome to the fort - good to have a fellow scandivian here. Think there are maybe three of us now. Almost enough to make our own trade threads and all that.

That's a nice addition to SouthernMan's map. Now all I need to do is find SouthernMan's map.

Two people in Vancouver, WA, whaaaat? I realize it's old, but can I manually add myself to that list, or is there an admin that does it?

You have to be logged into google but then anybody can modify the map.

I am logged in, but I don't see any way to add myself. I guess I'm not smart enough to be on there anyway. Oh well.
I done figured it out.

Hey everybody! I'm Swamifred. You can call me Matt, though. My mom didn't name me Swamifred.

Anyway, I'm glad to see a place dedicated to Ameritrash games. I'm not saying I don't enjoy the Euro stuff, but my game shelf is overwhelmingly biased towards shooting or punching things. I think that speaks for itself.

I'll give you a little background about myself. I'm currently temporarily stranded in Des Moines, IA. My former company, in a move that would give itself a 0.00001% increase in profits, decided to give me all the time in the world to work on personal projects.

So I am. I've been working on a game, and it's currently being playtested, though I'm willing to send out the print 'n' play files to anyone else who wants in on playtesting a game. I'll probably put up a thread about it in a more appropriate subforum.

I hope to get to know a lot of you folks. From what I've seen, you seem like the fun-loving type. If so, you and I will get along just fine.

Take care and play hard,
Matt

Sorry Matt, you've come to the wrong place. We hate fun here. Plus, this is actually a comic book site.

But please, pull up a chair for tomorrow's Friday Freakout. You're welcome to participate and I do hope you'll stick around.

Oh, I'm also going to need to get you to Paypal me $20 for chair rental.
