100 Photos Meme: day 13

I thought I was going to have to use a stock photo to answer this, as all of our board games are, I assume, still in boxes somewhere ... I haven't played any for aaaages. My favourite games are either trivia based (Trivial Pursuit, for example), or the ones you make up yourself.

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only horsey-person on my flist who used to play the showjumping game, right? You get a bunch of toy horses, set up a little jump course using whatever you have to hand, and then roll a dice to send your horse round the course? It's totally awesome, I don't even care if you're judging me. You can also play it by yourself if you're a loner child like I was. When I was little my dad made me a miniature cross country course for this game, with fake grass and bushes and proper banks, because he's awesome like that.

I also really, really like Mordheim, which is a similar sort of thing except with Warhammer models (...oki, not really similar. Only similar in that you set up your own obstacle course. And, unlike the showjumping game, there are skirmishes and deaths). I used to own a Skaven warband.

The photo is of a Magic: The Gathering model that rainechan bought me, because SHE'S awesome like that. <3 So although it's not Warhammer, and it's not exactly the little plastic Britain's horses I used to have in my tiny plastic stables, it does illustrate the point.

That is a gorgeous model! I have not played that showjumping game, but only because I had never heard of it. It sounds like a lot of fun! ^__^
