Winters are long in Anchorage, so why not enjoy the indoors of your warm houses with an extremely long an addictive game of Warhammer 40k?
For those people who have not condemned themselves as nerds such as me, Warhammer 40k is a table top war game. It is played with miniatures and very thick rulebooks. These rule books coupled with a litany of 6-sided dice, allows two people (or more) to wage war upon each other. You can either play until the other army is completely vanquished, or you can play for the traditional six turns.
The game takes place in a very dark futuristic setting in the year 40,000. There are space ships, space marines, corrupted space marines and all sorts of exotic monstrosities that make the lore of the game really fascinating. I talk about it at my website dungeonsanddragonsbooks.com
The slogan is “In the Future there is only War”
So Why is Warhammer 40k such a Great Game for People in Anchorage Alaska?
Obviously the cold keeps us indoors for long periods of time. Why not enjoy yourself? Anyone that has enjoyed building and painting a model airplane or train can appreciate Warhammer 40,000. After all, each soldier you get you have to glue them together and then paint them. There is a such a litany of various models that you can spend hours and hours painting these models.
Not to mention the actual game itself typically takes between 3 to 4 hours to play.
All of this makes this game the perfect recipe for a dark dreary night in winter bound Anchorage Alaska.
