Chris used to have a weekly game night years ago, before I met him. Dan, Adam and Jeff all played HeroClix. And before that when he was in his 20s he used to play Warhammer with his friend Chris. So he has a lot of different props and figures for various tabletop gaming.

This evening Chris set up a pretty basic board with some giant blocks and old Warhammer pieces to try out the Infinity rule set.

I've never really played true tabletop games, so some of the aspects were a little confusing at first, but after things started to get going it was interesting. Measuring out with a ruler how far your character can move is a...tedious. But I suppose if you were used to it it wouldn't seem like much of a big deal. I think it would be easier to just have a pre-drawn grid of 1" squares.

Dan and Chris both said this was a faster paced game than Warhammer since you can potentially take a turn (a reaction, basically) when someone else makes a move. It almost seems like the difference between a turn-based RPG and an action RPG in video games.

Next we'll have to try out Warmachine, which Dan is interested in.
