(TFT) Re: TFT Digest V2 #15

.<<<  How old were you when you bought TFT and why? >>>

I was all of 12 in 1977, and hung around this hobby shop that supplied me and my hyperactive friends with our D&D supplies. ( At this point I still remember Bal rogs and Hobbits being in our rule books! ) As I said, I hung out there ALLOT! And one day a game called Ogre came in. As I recall, I purchased Melee after playing that and being impressed by Melee right away. I had a best friend over, and we played a quick round of one on one comabt. My friends jaw hit the ground as we realised that this played INFINITELY faster than D&D, was far more realistic, and EXACTLY what we had been looking for. ALL of my friends came around after one run through. I got Death Test when it came into the hobby store. As I recall, I got sick that day, and couldn't get to read it. Towards the end of a really bad bought of flu, I picked it up and ran an adventure in my mind. Turning the pages furiously as I concocted a story line of the events I was reading, my mother came in to take my temperature. It sems that by reading and engrossing myself in Death Test, I caused my temperature to go up over 100! I got to stay home an extra day, and complete the epic while my folks were at work. Ahhhh Deat Test and an extremely high metabolism. I still have both!
