As we were talking whilst walking the subject of Mage Knight came up.
Mage Knight for the clueless is a game like Dungeons 'n Dragons mixed with any Games Workshop game, but instead of keeping heaps of paper with the character info it is all stored in the base. Their current stats are visible and should they take a wound you turn the base slightly to reveal the new set of stats.
I used to collect them and had thirty or so back at home. I just keep forgetting about them and so I never play much.
Any who, MK was mentioned and Mick asked me if I still played it. I said that I would like to play it again but needed a new starter set as the rules had changed.
We were a block away from Games Paradise, a store that sold everything from monopoly to Mage Knight, Magic the gathering, Warhammer 40,000 and hundreds of other RPGS and battle games.
I said that I just wanted to check the price of the starter sets and we end up walking out twenty mins later with the store's entire stock of MK.
Sixteen booster packs of four models each (RRP: $10 each) and one starter set (RRP: $35).
All for the low, low price of forty dollars.
Come next game I'll have an army to rival to mightiest.
