    Whine like a baby, now with 500% more drama!

    I have difficulty expressing myself at times, so apologies if this comes off as ham-fisted or whatever, but: I have people close to me who have gone on workers' comp or long-term sick leave because of mental health. It's real, it's valid and you should NEVER feel guilty for taking care of your...

    Whine like a baby, now with 500% more drama!

    It's like that up here too. When we bought the material to build our garage back in the before-times (2019), ply-wood ran us $4 a sheet. Current price, as of a couple of months ago? $20. And you're gonna need a lot of sheets.

    So lots of new games played recently! First off, Small World, a classic. Area control with varying powers throughout the game. Scales great with just two players, lots of fun. Not too long, either. Then Terraforming Mars. Man, that's a LOT of cubes you get to move around, holy shit! We both...

    [Rant] Minor Rant III: For a Few Hollers More

    I call those "weekdays". It's not any better translating for a Government entity, I'll tell ya. Commiserations, bro.

    Introduce Yourself!

    This may be the first time I've ever been called cool by someone other than, like, my family. I like this one. Welcome!

    The EPIC WIN Thread 3: SON OF EPIC

    Last time I was put under was also for wisdom teeth removal (all four, yay me). Before going under, I asked the dentist if the ceiling moving around was normal. Once assured it was, I muttered "cooooooooool" and went out. Kinda vaguely came to to see and hear the dentist pulling with all his...

    Been on a real Royal Hunt kick lately. They're a Danish band, a keyboard-heavy, really melodic, proggy power metal act. Check it out: Discovered them in University nearly 20 years ago now with the above album, then another one, Moving Target, and then never explored further. NO idea why. I...

    We just finished playing four games in a row of Calico. What an utter, utter delight of a game. :):)

    I wonder if I could apply the Kurtz Principle and work only a third of my work week... I'd even be willing to round up any decimal and make it an even two days, that's how generous I am.

    Yeah, we put in the river almost immediately. Changes things up quite a lot for the better. :) Three hours for Carcassonne? Christ, that sounds mind-numbing, LOL. Our Arkham and Sherlock games last that long.

    Thanks for the suggestions, all. I'm taking notes! :) Tried out Pandemic : Rapid Response yesterday. In a word: FRANTIC. You need to roll dice to prepare shipments to cities (using dice), move the plane to said cities (spending dice, which are then unavailable for supplies) and move around...

    Hi, board games thread! My sweetie and I have been playing quite a few board games since 2020. We'd played some before (Patchwork, Bang! Duel and Chromino were staples and still make it to the table regularly), but the pandemic pushed us to really try some new things. Some limitations as they...

    Thank you for those words Emrys. It's been two months since Lucky left us and we still cry once in a while. We miss him dearly.
