Re: The passing of Jim McMcMahon

Jim was a good friend.

I’m fortunate to have known him.

I’m going to miss you, Jim.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

Re: The passing of Jim McMcMahon

My brief interactions with him through the year at Gencon were always pleasant. Rest in peace Jim.

I never met Jim in person, but hate to see him go. RIP, Jim.

Rest in peace Jim. I always enjoyed chatting with him at Gencon. Great guy and I consider myself better for having known him.

Re: The passing of Jim McMcMahon

First Rev, now Jim, 2020 is a hard loss for Heroscape. At Gencon he was always friendly and down-to-earth. RIP @Jim . See his Scaper of the week.

What makes you so generous?!?
I believe that when you give something away, it creates a space for something else to come into. Plus, I like to help out if it is within my means. And who knows, with any luck someone might "do unto me as I have done unto others."

...
When did you get into Heroscape and why?
My wife Celina and two other friends were all co-owners of a comic book shop after taking it over from the previous owner. Celina was running weekly game demos and I would help her with that. One week, she had scheduled a demo of some game called HeroScape, and it would be demoed by one of the designers, since they lived nearby. I came in and Craig Van Ness was setting up a couple of maps. This was about a week before Christmas, and Wave 1 had just been released. Craig taught us how to play and passed out a complimentary booster to each person playing. After the first round of games were finished, I was standing by the map I had played on (and won) against one of the comic store's other regular customers. Craig had us start another game and then said he'd make it more interesting and the winner would get the Master Set we were using to play. I don't remember the specifics, but at the end it came down to my DW9000 against one other guy, and in soon to be typical DW9K fashion, no shields came up against one skull. I did receive the remainder of the wave 1 boosters as consolation prize though. I bought a Master Set from the store the next day and we had a giant HeroScape map set up on the floor running around the Christmas Tree that weekend. It hasn't stopped since.

Have fun. Every moment you have is a choice. Be sure to choose well. You can choose to be miserable, or you can choose not to. Suffering is optional.

Re: The passing of Jim McMcMahon

The thought I’ll never get to talk with Jim again burns really really bad. Such a good person and such a good friend.

Re: The passing of Jim McMcMahon

I had the pleasure of knowing Jim and playing with him many times. He was literally the best person I know and the pinacle of my "good" scale. I never saw him get upset not once. I'll always remember his smiling face across the board.

Re: The passing of Jim McMcMahon

What a sad year for Heroscapers. He always seemed like a great guy on the forums. Disappointed I never got the chance to get to know him, but so heartened to read many others did.

Re: The passing of Jim McMcMahon

Thanks to Hahn, I just read the news of Jim's passing on a BGG geeklist and am completely devastated. In the early days of Heroscape and the fan forums, Jim made his way out to California and was looking for Scapers to game with. I welcomed him and he joined me and my late gaming buddy, Scott AKA Guerillanator.

It was a nice evening of 'Scaping. There was a map created and named in his honor. Jim brought some custom, transparent Scape dice he purchased from a fellow Scaper who created them. Over the years, Jim kept in contact and he sent me some cool Heroscape stuff and we traded for other game bits to bling out our copies of Catacombs. R.I.P. Jim. You will be missed.

Re: The passing of Jim McMcMahon

Wow, @HEH .

It's good to see you posting here again, after all this time. When I was new here - and there was such a time! - there were a few guys who did little things to go out of their way to make me feel welcome as a new guy. It's how I knew this community was different.

Jim was one, of course, but so were you. I've always been grateful, so I'm glad you posted here, and given me the chance to say so.

Hey, Dad_Scaper! Those were the days. I really loved the time and our community of rabid fans. Thanks for reaching out and sharing your thoughts. Hope you're doing good and gaming strong.
