Geeky Guys Weekend

Cthulhu's Librarian, Risus Monkey, and I all used to live in the same town and play in the same gaming group.  Now, we try to get together at least once a year.  Abandoning home, family, and jobs for at least a few days, we hang out.  Although we haven't set forth any official criteria for what we do, the following have emerged by default:

  • Gaming!  
  • Some form of outdoor activity, often hiking.
  • Visit some National Park, National Monument, or something similar.  (I have a National Park Passport.  It's silly, but I love getting those stamps!).


This year, we went to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  I got my Passport stamped at the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, part of the Hatteras National Seashore.  We did a short hike at the Pea Island Wildlife Sanctuary, until we were ambushed by bugs and forced to flee.  We also played Microscope, Dungeon Crawl Classics, and the new Ravenloft board game from Wizards of the Coast.

Since this is a gaming blog, primarily, I'll try to do some play reports of those three games in upcoming posts.

  2. It was. The only thing that would have made it more geeky would have been if we made a ginormous sandcastle dungeon. That was seriously discussed.
