I am an avid tabletop gamer, that is to say that video games are NOT MY THING, I like to have other players in real life sit at the table with me like the old days when playing Monopoly, Life, checkers and the likes with family or friends.
After childhood I stopped playing games altogether but not for any real reason, I just didn't hang out with people who played tabletop games but the last 10 years or so I rediscovered the joys of tabletop gaming (btw, I say 'tabletop' to separate it from video gaming).
I was introduced to Dungeons & Dragons (a role-playing game where you collaborate with other players to defeat monsters and gather treasure and skill level points) and Magic:The Gathering which is a collectible card game that you build your own decks to play against others who have Magic decks, this game can be thought of as seriously advanced Pokémon or Yu-Gi-Oh! collectible card games.
I also found out that there are hundreds of cool board games like Ticket-To-Ride, Carcassonne, well, here's a list of the best board games you most likely never heard of:boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/149121/the-top-
The reason I write this is because a colleague of mine (who's also a FaceBook friend of mine) saw that I was posting about Magic: The Gathering and she said to me at work that wasn't that game to summon demons and do occult-like things? I didn't sense any malice in her query, only curiosity, but it got me to thinking of a time back in the early 80's when even I thought Dungeons & Dragons was about sacrificing children to Satan and secretly killing people (like for real), that and the boxes that games like that came in just LOOKED like they difficult to play and/or understand not to mention kinda scary looking.
So, any former D&D players out there? Have you ever played a Euro-Board Game (the Germans are the BEST game makers in the world, in my honest opinion).
