Welcome to the first of many adventures with Cards and Counters. Your one stop for all things nerdy and fun!
Here we will be diving into the many worlds of all Table Top Games that are old, ongoing or new/releasing soon. Whether you are a veteran, new player or have no idea what I’m ranting about; you will find that this is your local source for game stories, news and more.
Personally, I get hyped about any strategy game like Magic the Gathering and Pokémon while at the same time any role playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons (just to name a few). I have always been into comics and everything related to comics. But for the past 5 years or so I have been deeply into D&D and many TCG’s. The card game addiction for me started with Magic, but has grown and reached many others. I am always willing to try anything new to me and I am open to suggestions. Also, I am not above playing the good old fashion family game night board games (Monopoly, Risk, etc…). There have been many nights that I’ve spent playing monopoly until 4am. But those stories are for another time.
As of right now I’m invested in playing Pokémon and I play every Tuesday night at my local comic shop. And of course there is Friday Night Magic basically anywhere they sell booster packs. As for D&D, I am part of a game with a bunch a work buddies with a campaign that has gone on now for about 2 years. Granted, I don’t always make it to every game. But I play with great group of guys and one very patient DM.
No matter what game I am playing or where I play, the best part about table top games is the communities of players, imagination and competitiveness. I can’t count how new people I have met playing card games around New England by either traveling to locales other than my own or at conventions and tournaments. I have met some folks that live a couple hours away in different directions but they have became my closest friends all because we got to bond over doing what we love.
When you immerse yourself into one of these games you’re really jumping into a new diverse community of people that you easily become friends with and then later start to feel like family.
If you like to meet new people and like being competitive, just jump down to my local Great Stories Inc in Uxbridge, MA and find a table top game that suits you. It’s a great, reliable place. And someone is always there that is friendly, knowledgeable and supportive. Go see their gaming schedule and join us. Ask me questions, leave comments here and let’s start a conversation about strategy games. I am here to help in any way I can. I’ll meet up and introduce myself and one of the many games that I love to play. Or if you have a game to introduce to me to, please do! Table Top games are here for fun, to escape to other worlds and to find new friends that you can just nerd out with!
Till the next adventure…. Roll for 20’s
