Ok, guest posting is scary, but because I love my bloggy friends, I agreed to post here at I Can Has Catboy?
The Cap'n gave me a few topics to pick from and I chose gaming, because well, I know more about it than the other topics she gave me.
In case you don't know, I am the author of Jumble Mash and I'm pretty much a geek. I am 25 years old and absolutely love gaming.
The Boyfriend and I have a Wii, PS3, and XBox 360 with the Kinect. My favorite console is the Xbox. My favorite games are Bioshock and Bioshock 2. I am absolutely and completely ecstatic that they are coming out with Bioshock 3, although I have to wait a long time.
I also play Halo 3 and Halo Reach a lot. I love getting online and all the guys are like "Girls can't play Halo" and then I completely kick their butts. I am good at it, but it's because I've put many hours into it.
I'm also am a WoW geek and cannot wait to play Cataclysm!
BUT something that we've recently gotten into that takes no console at all and is actually fairly cheap, even if you decide you want to buy all the expansions, and that is Munchkin.
Munchkin is a funny role-playing card game. You are dealt eight cards at the beginning and hope like Hell you get some armor or some weapons. You can even get dealt Class and Race cards. For instance you can be an Elf Warrior. Each Class and Race has its own special abilities and things that help you through battle.
Each player's turn begins by "Kicking open a door." You basically turn over a card, if there is a monster, you fight it, if not you can either draw another card or choose to fight a monster from your hand. Fighting a monster and winning allows you to level up. First player to reach level 10 wins.
When Boyfriend first introduced me to this game, I thought I would hate it. I'm not much into role playing games, but I am ADDICTED to this game. I LOVE IT! And the more people you have, the funner it is.
I just have to get more of my friends to play.
