Re: Modern Wing Commander-like Games?

Elite and Star Citizen are the two current modern biggies, but Sol Exodus could also fill that void, it's 2 years old and only $8 on Steam.

I picked up all the previous X games on a fire-sale Humble Bundle right before Rebirth came out but [more]

Re: recommend me something! (and my BGG collecti

I'll second Munchkin and Star Fluxx, and add Star Munchkin (and there's more if that's a hit). Pandemic is a very challenging co-op game that's pretty fun if you've got 3 or 4 players who are into it. Can be short if you let things spiral out of [more]

Re: What to watch?

The big ones I haven't seen are Sarah Conner Chronicles and Dresden Files.

I second the recommendation for both of those.

Re: Good Arena Resource

know when to make lower value picks in the interests of making a well-rounded deck.

Yeah, I experimented and did an Arena draft with Druid rigidly using the guide and ended up with a deck with 30 unique cards, no pairs at [more]

Re: State of the Union

I beat Maexxna yesterday! I read a couple of deck ideas (can't find the links now), one about using Paladin and healing cards (specifically minions with Battlecries that would trigger multiple times as she webbed them back to your hand and you played [more]

Re: State of the Union

Huh. Apparently I got Faerlina and Maexxna confused - I've defeated Faerlina, got the green checkmark and the Nerubar Weblord card. I'll go read up on Maexxna and see what I can put together for her.

Re: State of the Union

So I'm pretty confident that lack of cards is not your main problem.

I did rely on a couple of gimmicks, like waiting until a Necroknight has one or more adjacent minions before killing it (learning these will serve you well in

Re: First trailer for Torment:Tides of Numenera

So will it go in your queue or does it jump to the front?

Did you back Wasteland 2 too? Where will that go in your queue?

Re: Naxxramas difficulties

Well, I beat Anub first try with that deck, but it was a little touch-and-go in the middle. I'm not sure it would've been the same result without the extremely fortuitous draw on this turn: he had Abomination out there, with 3 others, one of whom was [more]

Re: Naxxramas difficulties

Thanks Fog! I tried my first couple of times with my current-at-the-time freeze mage deck, which had every freeze card I owned. I'm not sure I've updated it since unlocking or crafting new cards, but here it is as it was when I tried Anub with [more]
