RipTen | Disconnected for the Holidays – Tabletop Games for Digital Fiends

Michael Futter writes: For most of the world, the holidays are a joyous time filled with cookies and presents and catching up with family. For too many though, it signifies the annual disconnection from gaming. These days, it’s even more painful to leave our PCs and consoles behind, because games require such an investment of time and mindshare.

After a week off, our reflexes are sluggish, we’ve forgotten some of the finer points of our character builds and that Civilization game that was going so well crumbles to dust as you try to remember exactly whose back you were going to stab next.

I can’t fix any of that. I’m sorry. However, I can help you find ways make time away from digital gaming an enjoyable experience.

Excellent feature. With the focus these days being on digital entertainment, it's nice to see tabletop games getting some love.

I am totally going to buy some of these things. I can play them without the use of evil electricity.
