Playing with your kid’s presents

Originally uploaded by Liz Henry.

This is what it’s all about! Elbowing your kid out of the way and setting up their Heroscape terrain hexes and secretly vowing to get on Amazon right away to order the expansion set with the volcano and the lava.

We’ve played through a couple of short combats to check out the rules by now, and it looks like a great game. That doesn’t even matter though. I could just fool around setting up the landscapes and making the animals and the secret agents with bazookas and trench coats and the valkyries and the skeletal dinosaurs and battlebots talk smack to each other in funny voices.

While I was on the floor in my pajamas this morning Moomin got up on the couch and in a voice an octave below his usual voice, like a classic rock radio announcer he went, “Dragon against dragon. Monster against monster. Robot against robot. Army against army. DOOOOOOM!!!”

    Prince J's room is covered in Heroescape – we never did manage to go with the rules, we just went with our own ideas and it was cool.

    I love your jammies. And I've been playing with tiny furniture and knights on horseback for three days. On the floor.

    I actually begged my son to let me buy Heroscape for him. I want to play with it! You know what he said? "Too many little pieces for the baby to choke on." Excuse me? What about the several THOUSAND Bionicle pieces we have?Next year, I'll just buy it for myself.

  5. Liz says:

    Elizabeth I so agree! Bionicles are okay but… tiny landscapes omg so cute! I need more terrain pieces. Right now I keep thinking "Hmmm, how could I have the maximal area, and then still have it be interestingly multileveled?" And… "If there were one big hill in the middle and two armies racing to take possession of it… what then!"

  6. Application and grinding of the kinds of the studies are very important and significant. It is very important and tremendous place and field of the success and academics. It is knowledge oriented and skillful for the excellence and importance.

    Older males are in their money making prime And young women are
    in their money needing prime and beauty prime. These three primes
    often converge creating the secret underground "older man being
    financially generous to beautiful younger woman" situation.
