The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

Oldies but goodies

Played Battle Cry again, which just reminds me why Memoir, Battle Lore, and C&C are such hot commodities. Still, I prefer Battle Cry (with a bit of handwaving to update the card deck).

Also played a few of the “good every now and then” card games, like Castle, Gargon, and Ark. Ark is still a touch too long.

And I spent hours trying to fix my computer. For some reason Firefox crashes after 3-4 minutes — this was a known issue in 3.0.9, but I’ve got 3.0.10. Fortunately the 3.5 Beta seems stable, but if anybody has any ideas (hint: mozcrt19.dll) on what to do, I’m listening.

  1. What handwaving do you do for the card deck?

  2. Oh,
    Making all the specialty cards say “Or activate a single unit.” (Like Memoir and Battlecry do). Change the skirmish cards (“1 unit in left/right/center”) to let you draw the top two cards and keep one.
    Switch the all out assualt (“Everything”) to “Any four units.” Stuff like that.
