Normally I share my experiences and thoughts concerning Dungeons and Dragons or Pathfinder as these are the predominant forms of table top gaming I participate in. However, from time to time I would like to share some other table top games that I have had the pleasure of participating in that you may or may not have heard of yourself.
So, here are three games I would like to introduce to you.
Red Dragon Inn
Imagine with me, if you will, that you are party of a band of adventurers who have just achieved victory in a recent quest. After a hard days work (and a little extra coin) you all decide that the best way to blow off steam is to head on over to the Red Dragon Inn.
This is the premise of the game. You and your band of misfits are at this tavern and there is plenty of gambling, drinking, and perhaps some rough housing as well in the form of cards and the actions they imply. Every person plays as a character (ranging from human fighters, to plucky bards, and even elvish wizards), and each character’s goal is to remain standing by being the last player sober, conscious, and with money.
It’s a pretty unique card game, and though it states it is for 2-4 players, they have multiple versions of the game with different characters so you could easily have 8 or more join in on the fun depending on which versions you have.
Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel of Mt. Skullzfyre
Seems like a mouthful but this game can be quite hilarious. This is another character related game. In this one you play as one of 6 over-the-top wizards who are battling for supremacy as “king of the mountain”.
The idea is to create these three part spells that all have different effects and defeat your foes. With bright colors, ridiculous spell names, and exaggerated results, you are sure to find yourself laughing as your hit points slowly tick down until there is only one wizard standing.
Yet another fun card game for your pleasure. This one runs 2-5 players. As the title of the game states, in this deck of cards there are exploding kittens. In a bout of defusing kittens with catnip sandwiches, belly rubs, and even laser pointers; players try to outlast each other in this silly game.
As the game progresses the more likely an exploding kitten will appear. It falls on the players to force that exploding kitten on another player. If they have no defuses left they are out of the game. The game progresses until there is only one left.
This game in particular has a digital version in the App Store for iOS that is quite fun as well. Check them out here.
There are so many different types of table top games that I could go on for a while, but I will leave it with these three for now.
Are there any table top games you like to play? Let me know in the comments.
See you next week!
