From Madrid

Supporter

Hello everyone.  Sorry I’ve been quiet the past few days.  I have the internet rarely.  I can’t wait to get back involved.

On a gaming note being in Madrid has helped me appreciate Pandemic: Iberia a bit more.  It’s really fun to see the names of all the cities on the highway signs!

It'd be funny if you ended up winning the current giveaway lol

And it's cool that you got to see the references from the game in real life! I have a similar experience when I go to Santa Barbara, CA for site visits (I work as a structural engineer) because almost all of our client work is in that area and our jobs are typically named after street names.

Let me ask the most important question: Did you watch the Mandalorian yet?

Supporter12 months ago

Very important question.  I watched the first two episodes.  Honestly, I thought it was only okay.  I hope it picks up in pace a little bit.  It was awfully slow and a bit boring.  I just think Disney is milking the Star Wars tags and not doing a good enough job with writing.  Even with the new novels, they feel like they are just pumped out.  I love the old EU because it was a natural consequence of the OT being such a great series.  It wasn't written to just make more content (like Disney had done IMO).

Still hoping that it will pick up though.  I haven't given up on it yet.

What brings you to Madrid?

Also, will you get a chance to visit Barcelona while you're over there? That's where the Sagrada Família is, the inspiration to the hit board game Sagrada :)

The school I work at sent 6 students over to Madrid (at our Sister school) to study for a month.  I went over to pick them up and learn more about the school and see if there are things the Madrid school does that we might like to incorporate at our school.

That’s super cool. I’d love to visit there. Hope your students had a good time!

If you go there don't forget the obligatory selfie! (I feel like I've seen a bunch of those on the facebook groups)

Supporter12 months ago

Whoops!  I think I'm a bit too old for selfies.  I think I've taken two in my entire life.

Is one of them your victory picture? lol

Supporter12 months ago

Haha, it is.  Looking to up to three soon.

Did you take any games on your trip? 

Also, what, if any, board game apps did you end up buying for the trip?

Supporter12 months ago

I did not.  There wasn't really time for that unfortunately (or space).  I only brought carry on bags.

Supporter12 months ago

Probably wise. I've flown with games a number of times and it is always a pain. 

Have fun in Spain.

I'm back, which os why I can finally respond to everyone.  But it was a great trip!

Nice. Now you can start fighting jet lag again. 

Supporter12 months ago

Actually I went out until like 1:00 am with some locals so I slept for like 8 hours on the plane to fight jet lag preemptively. 

Supporter12 months ago

I hope hope that works. 

Supporter12 months ago

It did work.  I went to bed at normal time in Colorado yesterday and I feel normal and great today.

Supporter12 months ago

Lucky. I usually need about a day per hr of time difference. Although it has never taken me more than a week, even if the time difference is more than 7 hrs.

I think he packed his entire Imperial Assault collection to play in the hotel room. It’s what I would do. 

Supporter12 months ago

Haha, yeah exactly!  I actually stayed near the campus of the school I was visiting with the priests that work at the school.

There's gotta be some way of tying in IA to Madrid xD

Supporter12 months ago

Yeah, it is kind of deserty (not really a word) so maybe all the desert tiles in IA could be used to tie it to Madrid?

Supporter12 months ago

I think @Skurvy5 could type AI to candyland. ;-P

Supporter12 months ago

Well candy land is just taking a movement action during your activation. Clearly.

There you go. What did I say?
