Ah, yes. I dimly remember the days before AD&D, which, until 2015, was the last edition I played. Awesome.

Well, actually it's a retroclone of Basic D&D called Basic Fantasy. It changed a few things, like separating race from class and using ascending AC. Then to make her solo hero survivable, I'm using some rules from Scarlet Heroes, which is a product for one on one roleplaying designed to overlay with OSR products (which are Basic D&D, original D&D, and AD&D).

The environment I'm using is a Basic D&D product called PC3: The Sea People where the entire campaign is underwater. My daughter is playing a shark-kin and got a pet shark in her first adventure. I've been cobbling together adventure material to use but there's not much out there for underwater adventures.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Cool. Thanks for sharing. I will keep an eye for you for underwater supplements.
My local Hobby Store usually has a bunch of old RPGs, there may be something floating around there.
In my RPG there is a race of Mermen but we have never developed them very far because characters simply do not get the opportunity to interact with them. Now you have my mind spinning on who they are, their culture, do they they have underwater cities, ect.
Good stuff. I could talk RPGs forever.

I got her to try HeroScape once years ago when it first came out and she said, "I'd rather blow my brains out than ever play this or any miniatures game again." C'est la vie. She's still a wonderful person and great cook, so I guess I'll keep her.

My wife loves to play a lot of different games. She loves Dominion and Thunderstone because she is usually pretty good at those two. She also likes to play co-op games quite a bit so we can work together to win. She likes Heroscape too so long as I bring her a pre-drafted army. She doesn't care for trying to draft and looking for things that have synergy. She prefers scenarios with win conditions other than kill em all too.

The old adventure module The War Rafts of Kron (X7) has some good stuff.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Well, I went through my old collection of D&D odds and ends, looking for something with underwater adventures for @quozl . I found The Keep on the Borderlands, Against the Giants, Tomb of Horrors, and other classics. I came across The Isle Of Dread - X1 - but that doesn't look like it has anything underwater. I also came across my own old Basic D&D booklet, with a copyright 1980.

Ah, nostalgia.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I'll check out The War Rafts of Kron, TW. Thanks!

That sounds awesome, D_S. You should leave them out to see if your kids start looking through them.

Played some Ticket to Ride tonight with some couple friends from Church.

First time I played Splendor. We played 2 games & I would've won the 2nd game if I hadn't forgot what I was doing on what would have been my second last turn. Took me 3 turns to recover from that mistake & then it was too late.
