Da Nerd Herd
I'm sitting in the front room of the new abode and in the next room sits my sister, my girlfriend and three friends playing a fantasy board game called Descent.
Now, it is perhaps a little known fact that my girlfriend is a supernerd.
Little known if you don't know me, I suppose. And maybe even if you do.
It was subtle at first. Gaming consoles started to pile up. Gamecube, PS2, Nintendo DS, Xbox and many more. The comics started to appear everywhere, action figures were being bought and not taken out of their boxes and then came the question every red-blooded male out there dreads:
"Will you come and play the Battlestar Galactica board game with me and my friends after work?"
"Crikey", I thought. "This is worse than I thought."
So now it's Descent. There appears to be a glut of dragony things and goblins. There's dice involved. It's all a bit Mason-esque and odd. So I will remain in the other room hiding away from the potion-buyers and sword-wielders, drinking my can and blogging my blog.
I slapped a review of Animal Collective together for the 'D so have a look and see if you agree. The goblins approach, I must fly.
