Right, if there is nothing else to be learned over my time on this forum it's that it is populated by a staggering amount of unashamed, nerds. Knowing this, I feel happy enough to admit that my girlfriend and I - having fully relinquished any pretence at maintaining a vibrant social life - have dipped our toes into the dank basement water of oh so serious proper board gaming. I'm sat here with my newly arrived copy of Eldrich Horror (still in shrink wrap) fervently awaiting the return of my fellow prisoner to domesticity so I can rip it open like a little kid and sniff the cardboard; allowing it to fill my nostrils as a single wistful tear forms in my dull, weather beaten eye... Don't judge me. Unfortunately she's shackled to her desk till 6:30 and then I have to go and get repeatedly kicked in the face for a few hrs so until then I thought I'd idle away the wait by allowing you all into my little pocket of regression by telling all about your favourite boardgames and how cool and grownup they are. Mine says 14yrs and up on the box and explicitly states it's not a toy... So there.
