It’s probably obvious, but in case you were wondering: no, we don’t have kids. Nor are we generally allowed unsupervised access to any, so you needn’t worry, and you can stop googling ‘Irish Social Services’.
In my post in last week’s comic, I talked about how I had heard very mixed things about Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition, to the extent that I had no intention of getting the game. However, after hearing from a number of readers in the comments, I have actually changed my mind on it. I had asked if anyone had first-hand experience with the game, and what their impressions were, and the response was overwhelmingly positive – you guys really made it sound like my kind of game. So, for anyone who has ever complained that reading the comic/blog posts has ever cost them money due to games subsequently purchased, you can have the satisfaction of revenge: Mansions of Madness is a fairly pricey game, but I think I’m going to need to buy it now. Thanks guys.
In actual fact, modern board games have not yet made their way into mass market toy stores over here. It’s something we hear is happening in other countries, but Ireland can be slow to catch up sometimes.
