I got some of my recent game purchases in the mail today. SFKH3: The War Machine pretty much finishes up my Star Frontiers Knight Hawks collection. The Boot Hill referee's screen is pretty lame (2 panels, with one side of one panel devoted wholly to artwork!) but some of the famous gunfights described in the minimodule look like they could be fun. The BattleTech lot (consisting of the revised Master Rules, Maximum Tech, 17 mapsheets, and a bunch of counters) finishes up my BattleTech needs, aside from the odd issue of Star Date or BattleTechnology.
The big gaming news today is that my daughter Elizabeth and I played a game of Candyland today. It was our first attempt at playing a boardgame together. We got about a quarter of the way through the game before she started playing with the pieces in ways that indicated that she had lost interest in the gameplay. Still, she did a great job of putting the game back on the shelf that I have set aside for her games.
