A future without minis?

Posted February 19th, 2013 at 09:44 AM by Sylvano the Wasabus
My son just had his sixth birthday. He had a party with friends and schoolmates and received so much stuff it looked like Christmas. Everything moves, everything takes batteries, most of it squawks and speaks.

For the family birthday his mother was there and she gave him a DS3 and fistful of games to play on it. If you donít know (I didnít) a DS3 is a handheld gaming system in full colour and 3D. It certainly exceeds any arcade game I played as a young person. My present for him was more subdued. It was a couple of miniatures and an adventure I had written about them as a bed time story. My son tossed the story aside, looked at the minis for a few seconds and then played the DS3 all night.

I know itís the future and the future is the present but I feel like my interests- the noble mini and tabletop gaming are quickly become fossils. I admit that computer games and play stations and such are amazing and I play too but for me they can never take...
