I have not played any of the games involved, here, unless Descent is making her(?) way accross the room to hang out with Twilight Imperium (just out of view).


Heh, heh. So, does that mean that in the gaming world, "size does matter"? I mean, if a hottie like Descent is going to hang out with TI, surely the size and quantity of the bits must play into her decision on some level.

*slaps himself*

That idea was probably better left to myself. Well it's out there now, anyway.

And, even better, when Descent starts to wear thin, we can always look forward to the inevitable Descent 2nd Edition (the "honey I got a boob job" version)

I hope that Puerto Rico dumps Caylus for Descent. I'd be the first in line to buy a copy of whatever kids they had


If there ever was such a game I'm sure you'd overhear such things as:

For my role I choose the Troll! That gives me +2 to my suger production roll.

Oh yeah, well then I choose the dragon. That gives me +2 to my 'burning down your crops' roll! Ha, a six! One of your slaves dies too.

Actually, that sounds fun! I was playing a railroad game last night and I'd have given anything for a nice dragon to lay waste to my opponents rail system

The first thing to enter my mind when I saw that cartoon was how much it reminded me of years ago hanging out in nightclubs at 2am.
Descent is that tall slim blonde with the attitude, so hot and confident. You go home with her and it's a buzz, then the next day you find there is nothing to talk about, honestly there is just nothing there but what you saw on the surface the night before.

Good ol' Descent, long ago you would have fooled me my friend

That's quite funny Benny boy. ASL reminds me of pretty ugly looking chick you would meet at a club who just screamed out "High maintenance", and you knew whichever sucker hooked up with her was doomed to a life of service with her (no time for other chicks!) and would spend the rest of his free time involved in rules disputes.


Yes but every day the sex is just as good as it was the very first time

Descent.

Pretty looking but expensive. And it takes forever for it to get ready, and you have to be prepared to take it out for the whole night to have any fun with it.

I can't talk much though, I own a copy of Arkham horror, which is almost worse.

Have you ever played Iron Dragon? There's an event card where the dragons attack. It doesn't lay waste to rail systems, just makes people lose a load. The earthquakes, floods, and erupting volcanos ruin rail systems.sauron

This is rubbish. Descent should be three times as big as the other two and should stomp the shit out them. Then Caylus commits suicide because it realises it's so boring and sucky. Then while the Euronerds are all sobbing at Caylus' funeral Descent drops in to kick some more ass, draging the corpse of turd n taxes or whatever the hell its called behind it. Then after dishing out a few spin kicks to Tempus Battlore rocks up ready to rumble in the sequel.

That would rock.



Wow man. It's just a game

Oh, I thought it was a well themed Twin Peaks game. Am I mistaken?
