And It Begins

After saying I'd lay off the purchases for a month or so, there is like some random voice in the back of my head pushing me to get new games. Stupid voice. So the other day, it was adding a few decks to Mike Gingold's online order for my new A Game of Thrones LCG (which I haven't played yet). This morning, it was Senji. This is a beautiful looking game that is normally quite expensive, but I found a good deal on the BGG marketplace, so I finally pulled the trigger. My minor OCD kicked in a little too, as I picked up a set of Plano 3650 boxes to store my Starcraft pieces. Yep, I don't hardly get to play the game, but I have sleeved the cards and sorted the pieces in Plano. I also ordered 2000 euro-card sleeves. I have a number of games crying out for these (I'm undecided on whether or not to wait for the premium version of these sleeves for Dominion) like every FFG game I have (Descent, Starcraft, Runebound come to mind). At $0.012 each, I didn't mind buying enough to sleeve some card sets that don't really need them.

Hopefully, OCD & over-proctectiveness don't merge into one thing. I would hate to see little Ashton wearing a XL dragon sleeve when I come visit.

I thought Game of Thrones came in a box as one set? Have you played it yet? Noah got it for Christmas and I'm personally itching to play. Oh, and Steve will play Starcraft with you.

The Game of Thrones LCG comes with 4 pre-built decks. They are expanding it with Chapter Packs, which are non-random cards which you can deck build or build the other two house with. You can play up to 4 players with the base and never need to buy anything else.
