Sellswords and Spellslingers
I bought another new set of rules, Sellswords and Spellslingers from Ganesha Games.
I bought the PDF because I've read a lot of good things about it as a solo game recently. After reading the rules I ordered the printed cards. Given my recent problems with space and time (no, not in a metaphysical, Eternal Champion kind of way... gaming space and time to play) I thought it would be worth a try. If it goes well, it might be fun try it as a cooperative game as well. It's a skirmish game, so it won't quite fulfill my quest for more "big battle" games. But it will be something.
It will also be a good excuse to put a bunch of individual and small groups of minis to use. Motivation to paint up some more odds and ends -- individuals and small groups, without worrying about large regiments. I also like that it's got a built-in campaign system.
Now I'm revved up to build a 36"x36" gaming table. I have a 34"x34" folding table, so I figure I can build a wood frame out to 36" square and either top with plywood or infill with insulation, and give it some texture and paint pretty quickly & inexpensively. That could slide right on top of the folding table.
And... maybe I should try the game out first before getting carried away. Haha.
