When I was at Madness Games & Comics buying the 1st Edition D&D reprints yesterday, I asked about the gaming tables. Apparently, barring schedule events, they are first come/first serve. Pretty great. Nice big tables. Might be a good place to play, and also maybe join a once a week or month gaming group? Kinda hoping so.
Apparently they have a “come and try the new games” kind of thing on Wednesday nights, which conflicts with my Aikido practice, so that is out. But I’ll have to investigate further.
My friend Dave, who works at Half Price Books, brought me pretty good copies of the 2nd Edition Players Handbook and DMG yesterday. Much appreciated. Should be able to locate the “Monstrous Manual” too. As I remember it (haven’t had a chance to delve back into those books yet), 2nd Edition actually had some nice improvements to the rules. I can always add back in the demons, devils, and other introductions to the Dark Arts.
