First board game: Monopoly (not the first edition, but not a branded one either)

First War game: A WW I Naval game with similar mechanics to Ironclads! Done by someone in our dorm at college.

First video game: Pong.  Although you could count Space War.

June 25: What is the first game you learned to play?

 

The first game I recall playing was Memory, but I'm sure Candyland and Chutes and Ladders were in the mix very early on.

 

The first non-roll and move was probably Cribbage?

 

And the first venture into miniature related games was, of course, HeroQuest.

First board game: probably Monopoly or Sorry!, as my parents were fond of those two. 

 

First board game of my choosing: chess

 

First computer game: Oregon Trail

 

First video game: Mario Brothers on NES

 

First arcade game: probably 1942 or Centipede

 

First computer game of my choising: Doom 

 

First Mac game: Bolo (with Marathon 2 a close second, but the IT guys got that off the school computers quick!)

Probably tag or hide and seek. Though "Who can sit quietly the longest" was a favorite of my grandmother's when she was babysitting. ::D:

 

First wargame was Avalon Hill's Blitzkrieg! First miniatures game was something Napoleonic, possibly Column, Line, and Square (aka Column, Line, and Slaughter). First RPG was OD&D.

 

I used to have a copy of that game.  Got it at a garage sale when I was really young, so the tactics were something I couldn't wrap my head around until much later (probably mid teens)

Uhhhhh....

 

Something toddler friendly? I can't claim to remember this one.

 

The first hobby game I learned was some flavor of (A)D&D. I think it was first edition AD&D, but we were very young, and elements of that and Red Box Basic D&D tended to blur together a bit. I can't say for sure when that was, but I know I was playing to the best of my ability to learn and follow rules by age 8.

Actual real game other people have heard of and play: Chess or backgammon, not quite sure which.

 

Game made up by my father and his friends for toddler me: No knocka down.

Other than tag and hide&seek, I think it was the board game Sorry. 

 

For video games, it would have been Super Mario Bros, or maybe Frogger (my dad had a side job fixing arcade games so we had a few)

OSL and wet blending. 

 

And I think I will wait until I have the more basic skills down a little better

Pickle, maybe. Or War. Or Tag. I don't remember much from Nursery School, so it's hard to say.

Video Game: Super Mario Bros on NES. It was almost DOOM on the N64, but the TV was super dark and since I was a tiny child being somewhere I wasn't supposed to be, I couldn't figure out how to fix that. Probably a good thing. :lol: 

 

Board Game: Clue

Not sure it was really a computer game, but we had digital coloring story books on 5 1/2 inch floppy disks. My brother and I got to play those and got to watch my dad play Captain Comic. 

 

The first board games that I remember were Candy Land, Hi HO Cherry-o, and Are You My Mother. I cannot tell you which one came first.

First game I recall learning to play is Yahtzee.  First RPG was Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition with my Father.  His eyes glow green from all the radiation he got in the service. 

 

@TGP Thanks for using my question!

 June 19: What's something you wish existed? Does it already exist in a book/show/game?

 

Thanks, Glitterwolf!

 

I wish I had a pocket dimension where time didn't pass in the real world, but I could go there to sleep and remain there eternally if I so wished.  Would make a heck of a game night.  Sadly, they exist only in fantasy (as far as I know).

 I want to have a well-paying job traveling around hitting stupid people upside the head with a plank...

 

Not to damage them,  mind you...

 

But whenever somebody somewhere in the world did something really stupid, I'd pop out and WHAP!... And they'd do a really entertaining Keystone Cops pratfall. And then, a few minutes later, they'd get up again perfectly unharmed and say, "Gee, I must have done something stupid..."

 

And on a good day, they might actually figure out what it was.

 

On a bad day, I'd still have the satisfaction of being able to hit stupid people with a plank.

 

 

This would be the best job ever.  But you'd need a teleportation device and the Flash and Quicksilver and perhaps even Nightcrawler just to keep up with the bountiful stupidity of the world.  Perhaps contract out Deadpool to assist?

June 20: Do you say tomato or tomato? Are there any similar pronunciations that completely vex you, like when someone says eligible instead of illegible?

 

Thanks, Pezler!

 

The male Don (shortened Donald) and the female Dawn.  I pronounce them exactly the same.  One that vexes me when I hear it is Nuclear.  It's pronounced "New-clear," 2 syllables. This "New-cue-lure" three syllable abomination has to be stopped!  (Yes, it really does bother me.)

June 21: What are some fun desk toys or busy knickknacks?

 

Thanks, husband.... :lol: 
(He says he expects a list of new shinies by the end of the day.)

 

I have Thanos, Captain America, and Mr. Rogers Funko Pops on my desk.  I just got approval on a poster for my wall.  They are debating on the "public" facing wall.

June 22: Are there any content creators (videos, blogs, etc) that you follow online?

 

Yes.  Blogs mostly, mostly wargames, and some painters.  Add in a few webcomics and you've got my mix.

Honestly, I've been experimenting with a style from an OLD 'eavy metal style.  I didn't get a chance last weekend, and this weekend is the dreaded annual trip for the Elder Spawn, so this weekend won't look good either.

 

Whew!  All caught up!  It's been a busy time of storms, trees on houses and through rooves, car accidents and hospitals for my family!  Sorry for the EXTRA long post!

Have it create a convention center and have it connect to the transporters so I can suddenly bring all the Reaper people to the Reapercon Eternal. This can only result in hilariousness.

      You thought you were rid of me... you thought "Thanks Gygax's Leather Dice Bag, July is over and we're through with Crowley's stupid questions!"
       
      YOU WERE ONLY HALF RIGHT!
       
      July IS over, but I HAVE MORE STUPID QUESTIONS!!
       
      Now, as a reminder, the obligatory rulze posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.

      Hey all! Time for the 2018 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards last year, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
       
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
       
      Last year there were more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me, and potentially my wife who may have my materials. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happened more often than I thought it would last year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
       
      So, the ground rules:
       
      I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the less visible and vocal forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 15th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. I'll get a mod to lock this thread on that date, and once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. But I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Sunday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I plan to have a "cheat sheet" of sorts to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. So, having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.
       
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!

      The year is halfway over! What do you want to achieve this month?
       
      Here's my list:
       
      - Get blog going again.
      - Finish editing photos from last November >.<
      - Paint Bones Sphinx (by August 4).
      - Figure out how many other projects I have to do (that aren't already on the table) and give them time lines.
      - Figure out a giveaway for 1000 followers on IG.
