Happy birthday Scott! Hope you had a great day.

Whilst I'm still only 33, a lot has changed for me since my 30th birthday. It's been the best decade of my life so far, which makes me all the more glad that I'm logging each and every day in a blog!

All the best from the UK,
Dan

This year is interesting.
It might be a year with round birthdays:

- whaleyland - in the summer he was celebrating his 30th
- Scott - in September he was celebrating his 30th
- Klaus-Juergen Wrede - in the summer he was celebrating his 50th

and today Matt Harper is celebrating his 40th birthday (mjharper - admin at the old CarcC and also he is the one who had the idea of the great CAR and worked many years on it)

In April next year I have a "round" birthday, but I don't really like to talk about it
My website:

although the games page is yet to be started

Happy birthday!
A knight is sworn to valour.
His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

Thank you! :)

It was a good day; we ate cake and got our butts kicked in Eldritch Horror.

Tobias, great that you had a good birthday.
My youngest son has his birthday today.
By the way, I bought Arkham Horror to my oldest son Ted for Christmas but we haven't played it yet.
Can you give me your thoughts on which of that series of Horror games that you think is best,
and what games you should get after Arkham Horror, if any.

Arkham Horror has been with us for many years now and we have played it quite a lot. It is not so much a game in the true sense as it is a ride. You do not make a lot of real descisions in it. None the less we love it and we actually said yesterday that it still has a few games left in it.

Eldritch Horror is a quicker, more streamlined "version". It is not as engaging yet, but since we only have played it four or five times I am sure we will grow to like it nearly as much as we do AH. The rule book for EH is stellar, while for AH it is ... less so. So far we still feel a bit more limitied in our actions. The combat is better though.

I say you should play the shit out of AH before going anywhere else, but since you will not listen to that advice ( :P ) I will say that maybe EH is a bit too simillar to AH to be really wrth having both. Horror is not my main genre in board games even though we own a few. If you are into Co-ops and have yet to try Ghost Stories, then you should do that. Be aware though that the rule book to that game might very well be the worst one around.

An alternative is Mansions of Madness. It is "one versus many" and thus not a true co-op, but rather okay anyway. Get the big expansion for it (Call of the Wild) which will really help the game play out.

Those are pretty much the horror games worth mentioning, that I own. Gloom is fine, but is starting to get cumbersome and clogged down with expansions.

Written in some haste as gaming friends are arriving! :)

It's A Touch of Evil at our house, by Flying Frog Productions. We love the game and try to get it on the table at least every other weekend. I don't know Arkham Horror but I've heard it said they are similar, or one is a copycat. Nonetheless, it plays really well as a co-op and that's what we enjoy about it. It's a great villain chase.
