So I recently purchased this Wizards of the Coast board game:



Which is a 2012 re-release of this classic TSR board game:



I'd rather have that awesome retro-looking original version, but with all the pieces that goes for a hefty price. They did a great job on the re-release, from all the pics I've seen, though. Pretty dang close to the original (different artwork notwithstanding).

This one that's dear to my heart. I just found out my dad has stage 4 cancer and we have no time-frame on how long he has left. This was a game we used to play a lot together when I was a kid (the original version). I freaking loved it and always asked him to play it when I visited his house. So this was a purchase so we could enjoy this together while we can, I can have that memory with me forever.



I also purchased this Sega Genesis game for the same reason. My dad was never a gamer, but he played the hell out of this game. There was a 2-player setting where each side had an armada of space-ships, each with different abilities and weapons. You'd fight each other one-on-one until the first guy ran out of ships. He always beat me, but it was still fun.

Nate, I'm very sorry to hear about your Dad. Sounds like you had some great times, and are going to have even more. Cherish the time you have.

I had the original Dungeon! game as well. My brothers and I would have epic battles back in the day. I never played Star Control but it definitely looks like something I would be interested in.

Take care my friend.
Quality. Consistency. Variety. Reliable. Fair. Friendly

I love board games like these. You should check out Will Wheatons Table Top Channel on YouTube. I'm also sorry to hear about your dad Nate. I know what you're going through. I just buried my dad this week. Hang in there. My prayers are with you and your family.

Thanks Nate. Life can be a (banned) sometimes but I always have to realize that time never stops. No matter what tomorrow will come. Death is always going to be apart of life. We all have to experience it sooner or later. It's rough, real rough, but we will all pull through. I hope you're doing well with your situations and good luck with everything.
