If you have followed my link from HCRealms, welcome to AFi, my “other home” on the internet. My No Man’s Land experience goes back a few months. In some of my posts I lamented how my local gaming store was no longer running regular HeroClix events. I knew I needed to find a new place. Two of my former fellow players, one from that place, Mark, and another I had played with years ago, Randy, both recommended a certain new place. I emailed them and it seemed like a good place, but I was unsure, as it was an hour away. Both Mark and Randy had also played against my son, Ben (Ben is 18).
As the day grew closer, Randy and I exchanged FB messages about the No Man’s Land event and the new Batman set (see previous blog). What I did not tell Randy was that Ben would be coming too.
The day came. Ben and I left Coventry, headed for Bellingham. We only missed 2 turns while driving there, and the second one turned out not to matter as we ended up on the correct street anyway. When we got there, we found a small crowded comic store filled with excited HeroClix players. We met new people and reminiced with Mark and Randy. Randy was happily surprised to see Ben. Reconnecting was cool. (more…)
