Yule Loot

Santa Claus was fairly good to me this holiday season.  Okay, I’ll admit it, I didn’t get all of the games shown to the right at Yule.  However, I did get them over the past few months, and so it’s been kinda special as various things show up in the post.  A quick list would include:

  • The new Dungeon! boardgame; it’s a reprint, and I have yet to see what the game is like, what with various changes alluded to on the box and in the promo material.
  • A whole bunch of Microgames, picked up at UCon back in November.  Titles include: Ram Speed, Fire When Ready, Rommel’s Panzers (all Microhistories), as well as Warp War, Trailblazer, Rivets, and Dragons of Underearth.
  • My soon-to-be-dog-eared copy of Jon Peterson’s Playing at the World.
  • Swords & Wizardry White Box in the attractive 6×9 paperback.  I very much like the cover.
  • Knockspell #5, the Winter 2011 edition.  Very reminiscent of Fight On!
  • The first two issues of AFS gaming fanzine, from Scott Moberly.  Interesting ideas – more of a review to follow.
  • Adventures Dark & Deep – A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore, by Joe Bloch.  This one I got some time ago, but I am definitely interested in seeing what Mr. Bloch has done here.

…all of which serves as more proof that there is more going on in the Old School Renaissance than meets the eye – or may even be possible to track.
