As part of Eric’s WONDERFUL birthday celebration, he was introduced to a new game called Defense of the Ancients.  It is a warcraft three module that allows up to ten players to control a single hero unit.  The heroes are divided into two teams, and the goal is to push into the opponents base and destroy their base.  There are over sixty heroes to choose from, each of them having up to four unique skills.  Over a hundred magical items can be bought and equipped.  Quite a number of Eric’s friends are playing the game these days with him.  If you’re interested, go to

Battlelore is a lightweight war game, aka warhammer 40,000.  It only takes from one to two hours to play, incorporates lots of units, an interesting command style, and magical and fantasy elements. Excellent two player fun!
