January 2008 Roundup for Critical Gamers
We've finally made it through the holiday feasts of December,
and we're starting to game at full speed again.
Thankfully we feel like we have a strong foundation of titles to work
through after that line of great board game releases last Fall. Coupled with the World of Warcraft TCG Raid
Deck: Maghteridon's Lair this may have been the heaviest month of gaming we've
Oh and by the way, in regards to Mag's Lair: some people
have had an easy time dispatching this four legged beastie from the depths of
hell, and we've seen the complaints every which way in the WoW TCG forums about
how the raid doesn't scale to challenge those groups with good card collections. But we've taken matters into our own hands,
and have crafted-up some Maghteridon's Lair house rules to even the playing field.
With these rules Magtheridon's Lair might be our favorite raid
deck release to date - it's more lethal than the 1/1 Whelp-happy Onyxia's Lair,
and has a stronger consistent theme as the epic grind of the 10 bosses of
Molten Core. And considering how well
the March of the Leigon set release was, we're thinking the World of Warcraft
TCG isn't some passing fancy. This is a
solid TCG series.
This month we're looking forward to getting our hands on the
Tide of Iron expansion: Days of the Fox and fighting some intense tank battles through
the expansive north African wilderness. We're
also looking forward to hearing more about the Heroes of Might and Magic
Kingdoms massively online webgame, which definitely seems like the looker. And it just so happens that our interest in
Travian is starting to fade - you probably won't see it on our "What we're
playing" list next month. Speaking of
