What this blog is about: Dust Warfare


Last year I started a new hobby of playing board games.  I had been a table top role-playing game player for many years, but when it came to board games, I thought of only the ones most people think about: Risk, Sorry, Candyland, Clue and of course, Monopoly.  It wasn’t until a chance viewing of the Youtube news show The Young Turks that I learned that Wil Wheaton of Star Trek fame was starting a new Youtube based show called Tabletop.  To say the least, I was fascinated by the idea of this and decided to see what this ‘modern’ board gaming thing was all about.  After all, my friendly local gaming (FLGS) store carried hundreds of them.
