Well, good news! I have found a few games for my search.
Thanks, all, for the suggestions about Talisman, it just so happens that my husband has been a long-time fan of it and has it as well as a few expansions tucked away somewhere. Actually, they’re all in our closet in the front room which is now pretty much stocked floor to ceiling with board games.
And since I like to add to the craziness, I just picked up a few more:
- Pirate’s Cove (great fun, tried this at work)
- Carcasonne (thought I had it, apparently I didn’t)
- Monty Python’s Fluxx (no idea what this is but it looked cute)
- …something about Trains and Stations Oh! Ticket to Ride
Anyway, that should keep me busy for a while.
Settlers of Catan was a huge hit with my kids, by the way. I was looking for games like that. I think they’ll really enjoy Pirate’s Cove, too. We played Pirateology, but – uh – apparently we played it wrong. No one ever actually battled. Whoops!
I’m usually good for about 45 minutes to an hour. After that, I get ants in my pants and, well, stick a fork in me, I’m done.
So thanks to Kalkin and RoseVortex for the suggestions!
Oh, and I picked up some new dice and the 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons Player’s Handbook, too. We’re playing at work and since I’m new at all of this, I figured it would be a good idea if I knew a little bit about what I’m doing. Can’t look like a dork all the time.
I definitely walked out with a lighter wallet, that’s for sure. Sheez.
