Just Want to Throttle Her and Take the Sword

Seriously though, the lady of the lake is a fickle wench
November 11th 2010: New comic, and the Chicago Toy and Game conference in a little more than a week. I've been to a few con's but I'm not sure what to expect from this one. It's got me thinking critically about board games, though, what it is about them that affects me so. By trade I hope to be a novelist, I play a lot of video games, my fiance is getting into films, by no means do I put any one story telling medium above any other.

However, board games have a certain power within them. A combination of imagination and logic that creates representations of the world in rather colorful ways. Ways that get the players thinking about systems in innovative ways. An excellent passtime then. For kids and for adults.
