Whether or not you are religious, a midwinter holiday is celebrated by most people. May yours be a happy and stress-free time of relaxation and recharging of batteries, both physical and emotional.
Presents too are traditional. Presumably this was originally to mark the turning point where the days begin to grow longer again, rejoice that the winter stores haven’t run out, or perhaps simply to remind yourselves that you’ve got half way and haven’t been eaten by wolves. Yet. Here on Quirkworthy I won’t bore you with tales of socks and tasteless cardigans, just games 🙂
This year I’m doing very well. The usual don’t-know-what-to-get-you-so-you-order-it things are making their stately way from the distant corners of the globe as I write. We did that rather late, and I picked obscure stuff (naturally), so it’ll be a while. When they arrive I’ll be sure to mention them. Today, however, I got not one but two of the remaining three parts of Lego Heroica to go with Nathuz. It was all a bit of a mix up, to be honest, but I’m not complaining 😉
I’ll be writing up a review in due course, but suffice to say that we’ve already defeated the goblin king this morning, and will be trying out what happens when you link sets together later.
Here’s hoping that you and your loved ones are as happy with your gifts.
I got all the Heroica sets too, to go with the Fortaan one I bought off the back of your last review. I’ve just finished a game of all four joined together, it was great fun. To determine the winner I assigned points to each monster, weapon, objective etc, and added them up once all eight objectives had been claimed. From now on, if I ever need an area cleared of monsters and gribbly things, I know to send a thief… I look forward to your next review. Hope you have a good Christmas.
I keep finding the wizard outkilling the barbarian, though today it was the druid making the knight look bad 🙂
