Re: What Video Game(s) are you playing

With so many other games, I still have yet to play... Yeah, I literally have DOZENS of games I own but have yet to play. So I've put a moratorium on buying any more games until I actually play the ones I already own, and finish all of the ones I end up liking. Which I figure, if I like most of them...

Re: What Video Game(s) are you playing

Discovered from a friend an old game for the Commodore 64, which is now available as an Application. The game is called Sword of Fargoal. Simple but challenging for the iPhone. Played one or two games of Call of Duty IV, and Some more of my ongoing game of Skyrim. But the game I've really been playi...

Re: Descent or Legends of Andor:which one do you recommend?

Itlas, Know your going for Descent, I'm sure you all will have fun with it! I did have one last one that you could look into down the road.

Re: What gaming stuff are you reading?

I really enjoyed running Black Monastery... Yeah, it seems like a really interesting adventure. I was captivated by the write up on Frog God Games webstore page on it.

Like Treebore said, it can a take a bit with set-up and tear-down, but a fun game to play, whether you do one-shots or follow the campaign. FFG's compone...

Re: Fantasy Grounds Crashing for C&C

Just a quick update. I did post over at the FG2 Forums. It seems the program has a memory limit (32 or 64). Crashes can happen with too many Tokens.

Hey all, I'm an FG2 user for several years. The problem I'm having now is with the C&C ruleset. We game every week but every week we're having the game crash multiple times.
