What better opportunity than to introduce him to the ways of the tabletop game!
As an introduction I dug out the very same game I'd used to try and entice his father & uncle all those years ago ....DungeonQuest (2nd Edition).
Whilst I failed to keep them in the hobby, I could be lucky with the next generation, you never know.
DungeonQuest is perfect for an introductory gaming experience. The gaming mechanisms only take minutes to learn and as long as someone (i.e. Gramps) has an overview of the main rules and the various card decks, you're away.
It can be a very exciting game, though I always thought it was very difficult for someone to actually complete and win.
Charlie was getting the hang of it after three games, choosing to rest his laurels on treasure found during room searches rather than chancing it with the dragon. This probably makes good tactical sense and at least gives you a chance of leaving the dungeon in one piece.
Great fun had by all.
|Guess who'd just died again!|
Now I'd forgotten all about this pioneering dungeon crawler! I still have it on the top shelf and thought this might be the next step for Charlie's induction.

No option...they're going to have to be repainted. An ideal test for Citadel Contrast paints I think!
Until next time.......
