Old School here with some thoughts from this weekend's gaming activities.
I went out to play and as anytime I haven't played in a while, it takes a little encouraging. I ran into just the right gamer, who got me into a 1500 point game. Now usually, in 5th, I would step out if a 1850, 1750 and a possible 1000 point team list in mind and normally played 1850.
When 6th came along, I wanted to take advantage of all the new rules and toys, so my games leaned more toward 2000 points with an 1850 back up.
Games seemed to take a while and with all the new rules, there were plenty of interactions that took some ... Research. Even after about 25 games, I was loving the new stuff, but having a hard time getting around the time sink and this odd feeling of boredom. Frankly it scared me a little.
That all being said, I really enjoyed 1500 points. I didn't have room for extra crap. I had to make a list that functioned in one direction together or I knew it wouldn't work. The game was quick but deep enough we both had plenty of laughs too. I really enjoyed it. Now, I'm not saying I'm going to change everything forever, but I am curious to see what people are playing with.
What points level are you playing 6th right now and what level do you find most enjoyable?
