05:56 pm - on the games people play...
Last night, beststephi, sui66iy and I played HeroClix for the first time. It was actually much more interesting than I would have thought. We played the simplest (100 point) variation of the game, but I'm curious to play it again with more points and see how it goes. Next time, maybe I'lll use slightly more strategy in putting my team together as well. Steph won.

Went to Ross Park Mall with vanango today. Saw a place called Build-A-Bear Workshop that was pretty cool. You go in and you pick your own teddy bear (or cat or dog or bunny or whatever) skin and you stuff it yourself and then put together an outfit for it. I guess this isn't really a game, but it does seem like a fun thing to do. It would be a totally awesome date activity.

sui66iy and I had been talking about role playing games a lot lately, and in particular I was saying that I think beststephi should play them (she never really has). Mike now has me thinking about Paranoia. Which I never actually played before, but the idea intrigues me.

I haven't played Spades in quite some time. I'm in the mood. Is anyone else.

max1975 has been talking smack about tennis lately and is serious need of having his mouth forcibly shut. So I propose a challenge. The 2003 Who's the Bitch Now Invitational Challenge. I will only be sending one invitation, in the form of a punk card to one Stephen Bajzek. One match of tennis, one on one... loser publically acknowledges his indentured bitchitude to the winner via livejournal... Of course, I don't think a certain someone has the... shall we say... cajones to respond... probably has gotten to comfortable in hiw womens jeans... I'm just saying is all...

hmmm... I can't tell if that's a foolish bravado "ok bring it, I ain't ducking you" or a very sensible yet wussy "no no no, please Mr. Maverick, don't bring the pain, I know I'm your bitch"

cough..cough..SHADOWRUN..cough..cough....cough

Whew. Excuse me. I'm sorry, what were you saying?

I see your Shadowrun and raise you a game of Gammarauders.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: June 9th, 2003 - 05:05 pm (Link)
yeah yeah yeah, I know... and I figured you might actually comment on that. The problem is that as much as I miss gaming in the back of my mind, I'm not convinced that I currently have the dedication to devote myself to it in a way that wouldn't make me feel like I wasn't cheating, myself, the character and the rest of the campaign. I always hated gamers who were undependable and I feel like right now that would be me. So until I can convince myself that I can do better than that, it best just remain a pipe dream to me...

*sigh* but I do so miss ShadowRun

For a one-time game Paranoia's a pretty good choice, in my opinion. Only the GM needs to know the rules, and the setting isn't too hard to explain. After that is is all shooting trouble and over-acting. Oh yeah, there's usually a lot of laughing too.

I can totally appreciate that, and I kinda figured that was the situation. I only mentioned it because you hadn't actually said yes or no yet.

If you ever change your mind, just let me know.

hey hey,

if we're talking Heroclix, there's a bunch of us that play. We generally get together on the weekends and such. As a nice aside, we're all older and not entirely socially offensive.

There's also a regular tournament held at the Sq Hill library every single Sunday. Now those people ... well. .. at least they have prizes.

So, I haven't met you yet. Wanna get together and roll some dice?
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: June 9th, 2003 - 05:11 pm (Link)
oh... well did I not mention that I've only played the once and I lost? I dunno that I'm ready to embarrass myself against actual strangers yet... i'm not yet as confident as I am say about wiping the tennis court with max1975's poor decaying bitchlike form. So I need to get a little better first. I'd be willing to hang out and play you though. I might even learn something from the defeat.

Oh, and yes, I realize the Max thing made no sense... but you know how it is... you just get so used to insulting someone in every comment that it becomes second nature...
[User Picture]From: komakin0 Date: June 9th, 2003 - 05:19 pm (Link)
heh, man, we've just started too. I mentioned the tournaments because they happen. I've played maybe ... 4 times now.

Do you have some sort of contact, like an IM name? Having a conversation through LJ blows.

Screw all this Tennis / RPG / whatever bullshit.

SPADES. I want to play SPADES.
[User Picture]From: komakin0 Date: June 10th, 2003 - 06:11 am (Link)
Spades just may be the greatest card game ever devised.

Not to mention that it's the only one I'm any good at.

None of my current friends play, though. Someone invite me somewhere for trash-talkin' action.
