Hola kids,

A late-mid-twenties nerd here, married to a nerd and expecting our first nerd offspring this June. I work for a dotcom downtown, live on the north side (think Lincoln Square) and try to nerd it out as often as possible.

Any CCG nerds here over the age of 21? Let me know, I have a great game I'm trying to recruit some interest in. Also, if anyone wants an @nrrd.net email address forwarding to their own, let me know. Take care, y'all.

CCG?

Man I feel bad for not knowing all the lingo.

Collectible Card Game, think along the lines of Magic: The Gathering and the like. You invest far too much time and money into it and end up being one of four people you know that even end up playing it and never often enough.

But still, you play.

Yup, you certainly do... although I basically stopped around 6th Edition... See my other comment ;-)

He's talking about TCGs =\. (CCGs is what 7-year-old non-nerds sometimes call them... )

I CCG Magic (but not in a LONG time) I have Hyperion (Its gone and I never found anyone to play), Wheel of Time (Forsaken and Rand decks courtesy of a friend), Doctor Who (just the starter), Star Wars (A LOT of em, Trilogy, Young Jedi, Episode 2, New Jedi[i think]), Yu-Gi-Oh! (haven't played it yet though... wonder if I can find all my cards), and Pokemon (didn't really like it)

I ended up one of a couple people who WANT to play but don't (but USED TO) in Magic.

MOSTLY I tabletop RPG.

Oh and Def over 21.

Well myself a few friends are into Shadowfist and have enough cards and decks to show others how to play and have a good time. The game almost became extinct recently but there's a grassroots effort to keep it alive, which is why I always pimp it whenever I can.

Are you into the Star Wars RPG?

Yup! When I can get people to play ;-) I had a most excellent character at one point that sliced into a ship and helped someone steal it ;-)

As for Shadowfist, I will have to look into that...

I love to write short-form stories. I love Star Wars. I love nrrding out.

So therefore I love GMing far too intricate Star Wars RPG campaigns but alas! - no one to play them with. I've tried getting a group together but nerds are far too free spirited to be expected to show up week after week so I've gotten nowhere.

Maybe someday I'll get a good core group of 6-7 people to play with. Maybe.
