has anyone else tried:

The World of Smog: On Her Majesty's Service

Image result for on her majesty's service board game

We were introduced to it on the SPC and I enjoyed the moving board and setting.  This may be one of the prettiest board games made.

   Greetings, all.  Just a quick self-intro:  I was a board wargamer for three decades, cutting my teeth on Avalon Hill's Gettysburg, and wrapping up with Third Reich.  I moved to the PC because it memorized the 128-page rulebook for you, thereby eliminating the entire worst part of the experience.  Of course, it also eliminated the best part, the friends-around-the-table aspect.  I am currently looking at dipping my toe back into friends-around-the-table, having received Gearworld for my birthday and Firefly: The Card Game a bit before that.  I put a couple of titles on my Christmas list, and this looks like a great place to hear those who have kept current talk shop while I wait to see what the fat man brings.  Looking forward to getting back into it; I'll start some discussions when and if I find that I have something to say.

   Hope y'all have a great Holiday, and I'll see you around the site.

Greetings, I just joined and found this group with like minds of how gaming used to be. Though I may have my share of console and computer games, I was introduced to RPG's in early 2000's, enjoyed it ever since. I even created some of my own.

hi I am new. i just wanted to ask if anyone has seen the new return to ravnica set for MTG? I found a site where a guy is making D&D classes for the ten guilds. Thinking of running a game with them. Plus the Izzet seem like steampunk magic users to me. what do you think?

Does anyone remember Blackmoor? The fantasy setting where most of us got our first taste in science fantasy in D&D?

Found an old set of rules for a table top miniature skirmish game titled Reencounter. Relatively good rules for snap-shot One miniature = One Character...ranging from French and Indian War up to WWI. Contact Me if you are interested in a copy and we'll work out how to get it to you.
