For no reason I can understand, the first thing I did when I woke up Saturday morning was to reach under my bed and pull out two boxes. One box was full of Warzone books, the other was the old board game Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel.Undead Legionaire
I painted this miniature, along with almost all the others in the game (at least all the heroes) over ten years ago. The box cover looks like it has been dragged through a war. The odd thing? Once you open the box, with the exception of the minis being painted, everything is as pristine as the day the game was produced. My copy has never, ever been played.
This may change in two weeks when a good old friend, who thought he had retired from gaming, are getting together to bring gaming goodness to three boys ages 13, 12 and 9.
Games on the short list, my opinionated short list catered to my love of the adventure board game, are:
Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel
D&D: Castle Ravenloft
Another option would be to go “full bore” and introduce the boys to Pathfinder using a good collection of minis, but I’m afraid that might be a bit complicated and slow moving for their ages.
My final option is either Warrior Heroes or 5150: New Beginnings, both from Two Hour Wargames.
Opinions and ideas are welcome and eagerly requested.
