Both Ogre and Wild West Exodus are shipping. Which one will get to my door first? Which one will get played first?
Those are real questions, actually. I'm not sure which will get to me first, but hopefully both will be here by this time next week.* For practical reasons, it may be Ogre that I get to play first, simply because I can teach Ogre to my son a lot faster than I can teach him how to play WWX. And if WWX arrives during the week, while I have clearance to go deliver my friends split of the order, I'm not sure I have clearance for the amount of time it takes for me to win a game. Or lose one. (Either one is good - it sets us up for a grudge match the next week.)
I'm starting to look for Wild West terrain. I need to have a good chunk of it for WWX, because shooting is deadly, and terrain is your friend. And much of what I have for WM is themed incorrectly - either bright green, grassy hills, steampunky buildings, destroyed wrecks, etc. I think I need some cacti too, and I know that I do not have any of those.
In the meantime, registration for AdeptiCon opens tomorrow. I still don't know what events I will try and do, precisely, but I plan on getting at least Iron Arena and Malifaux Gaslight tickets, and playing in both of them. I'd like to do at least one WM tourney as well.
* And, in the "shipping in the next week" category, Relic Knights should finally begin shipping, and Rivet Wars should start as well. Lots of gaming goodness on the way.
