In case you missed it, our very own Nick Breckon participated in an Idle Thumbs panel/reunion at this year’s PAX. Somewhere between discussing Far Cry 2 and listening to The Wizard, there was a lengthy discussion on a tabletop game called Die Weinhändler. Since then, Nick’s bought a copy of the game, and if he has his way, by next week it’ll be the only game anyone is playing. Or maybe not… Halo: Reach releases next week.
Here’s the rundown of the games we’re playing. Feel free to let us know the video games (or tabletop games) you’re playing.
