Well my videogaming is reduced as all my TVs have died the death, leaving my 360 alone.

But gaming continues:

- Played Smallworld Underworld. Very fun and a good evolution from Small World. A notch more complicated, but not bad by any means.
- More Dominion. I keep getting schooled at this, so I'm guessing I need some practice.

- Apocalypse World
- Exalted, using the Sorcerer rules on Google Plus

- Trauma, a funky click puzzle game w/Okami style draw-symbol game play:

I have been playing:

- Monopoly Deal!, a card game version of Monopoly that plays in 20-30 minutes and is a lot more fun. Sadly, I figured optimal strategies in one day, so I'm putting together some house rules to make it more challenging.

- Yomi! A fighting card game (thanks to yhlee for hooking me up). Though this game has more stuff going on, my roommate and I also found optimal strategies for our character decks in 3 hours of play, so that's kind of sad.

- Final Fantasy 13. I got a cheap copy ($20) to fill my need for JRPG action. Whenever I get done, I'll have to write it up here, since there's major coonery with the black character...

There's a lot of gameplay and storytelling problems as well. I'm seeing that the gameplay is basically a macro-based RTS with 3 units on the screen - it's 10x the work for about the same level of fun as choosing between Attack and Magic over and over. There's also the part where you play about 3 hours and there's no xp or leveling up- so the fights are basically a waste of time early on.

Story-wise, I'm about 7-8 hours into play and I haven't seen what a normal town looks like in this weirdo setting, and I don't understand the motivations of most of the party...

- D&D 4E Essentials - I ran a quick encounter for some friends last night testing out some hacked monsters stats that I'm using. I want to run a short campaign, and it looks like it's going to be pretty neat.

How about you? What's up with your gaming?

I've been playing lots of boardgames! I've been introduced to Tigris & Euphrates, Agricola, and Warmachine.

Last month I ran some rpgs for the local mini-convention, including a great game of Bliss Stage.

How about you?
