i went years without playing, and it was really starting to get to me. i never thought i'd play again. so dh & i made a game happen. we eventually found enough people who hadn'y played in awhile & suddenly, there were our friday nights.
i've never played any of the collectible card cames - well, i used to play the X-files game with an ex years ago, but i don't even remember how it was played. i figure, between D&D, art supplies, and the occaisional music or DVD purchase, i'm already overspending!
one of the reasons we wanted to get back to gaming (well, for dh it was an introduction to gaming) was because we're homeschooling ds, and probably dd too, unless a miracle happens & we can afford a private alternative or waldorf school in another 3-5 years! role-playing builds so many skills: reading comprehension, math, socialization, problem-solving, imaginative play...the list could probably go on and on.
gotta go, dd just started bellowing. (she's fighting sleep.) ye gods, my boobs ache. so happy this one's not a half-elf!
