I finished up Pool of Radiance last night. Even though I was playing with judicious mod use via the Gold Box Companion, this felt like a true accomplishment to me. It's the oldest game I've tackled on this current attack on my backlog. It was a lot of fun, and more addicting/compelling than I had anticipated. I normally only get to play games after my kids are in bed, but due to the lack of sound and the turn-based nature doesn't consume my whole attention I dared to play some while they were awake and active. By the end though I rushed through the final couple zones, since my characters had mostly hit the level cap and I was leaving most treasure behind because I was already holding more than I could carry (the encumbrance caused by currency was probably my least favorite part of the game). But still had a great time and really glad I gave it a shot.
