My son is three years old now, putting him yet another year closer to the time when we can spend hours devouring our way through my game collection. Interestingly, I find myself buying games today, that I want to play with him tomorrow (or in 3 - 5 years).
It seems sort of crazy to do this, but I am afraid that if I don’t get some of these games today they won’t be here tomorrow. The opposite side of the coin is that they will be here tomorrow and will be a new version. Games like Runebound and Descent are not getting as much table time today due to their length. However, these are exactly the games I want to introduce him to. These are the games I am hoping to play with him (when he is 6 or 7 or 8). I buy them today, so that I can play them today if I get a chance, and also so that we can play the full set in the future.
I might be crazy. Anyone else suffer from this compulsion?
