I wasn't sure about posting that. Don't want to get banned, but I think it's probably harmless.


Fief: France 1429 KS edition with metal coins and all expansions

Go Cuckoo!
Guilds of London
King of New York
Pie Town
Space Cadets: Dice Duel
Unlock!: Heroic Adventures

I forgot about them! We live about an hour away from Noble Knight. I think I'll shoot them an email.

Yeah, here I go assuming everyone is in the US :)

I'm in the US, so my experience is limited to that. Near Chicago.

I always try to price my games lower than what I see others selling them for on BGG Marketplace.

Maybe people just don't want what I have :)

I bet he would like #Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar :) There are a lot of good recommendations in this thread. I know he really wants to try my copies of #Star Wars Imperial Assault and #Star Wars: Armada, so we'll see what happens.

So my son has seen a total of 5 movies in his life (some of them multiple times). We're probably odd like that. He's never seen a marvel movie, but he loves reading marvel and dc books from the library.

Favorites: Batman, Superman, Spiderman, and Captain America.

Well, I still have to help him with scoring. It does get a little weird, but he's getting better at it.

Yeah, I guess I listed those to moreso demonstrate the level of complexity he can handle.

I've played Dinosaur Island. The box art is dope, and the meeples are definitely cool. Gameplay wasn't too complex once I got into it (good thing), and I definitely enjoyed building up my little dinosaur theme park :)


I recently played #Clans of Caledonia solo, and that was pretty good, and I backed #Gentes: Deluxified Edition on KS. I tried that solo awhile back so that I could teach others, and that wasn't bad. It's still better with other people, but yeah.

I think for solo stuff, I prefer much lighter fare like #Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale or #That's Pretty Clever...It might be a time thing.

Rock it out! You won't regret it :)

Oh, man. I bet you're going to be swamped when the vaccine comes out. We were in Walgreens (I think it was Walgreens) the other day, and my wife was talking to the pharmacist about how they're going through freezer/cooler storage stuff to make sure they're ready when the vaccine is widely available.

I'm in Roscoe, just two miles from I-90. It's about 15 minutes north of Rockford. You?

She works for a large orthopedic provider near us. They also run urgent care clinics that are mostly focused on orthopedic care, but will also handle most normal urgent care stuff as well. The urgent care clinics see a lot of orthopedic workplace injuries and sports injuries.

She's an X-Ray tech, so her department interacts with almost every single patient that comes through the door.

Most definitely :)

Heck yeah. Just have to get past all this garbage, and then my house will be open again for game nights.

My wife works in the healthcare field, so she's around people all the time, which means, we stay away from everyone else for now.

My wife has yet to beat me in Pipeline. Our last game was close, but the two other times we've played I just destroyed her, which honestly, isn't fun. I don't mind doing that during work lunch games, but not at home with the wife :)

She's an excellent sport about it, but I know she'd enjoy it more if she felt like she understood the strategy a bit better.

I'll have to check those out. I've seen stuff like that, but never taken the plunge.

Definitely first world problems :)

I keep a small stack of games upstairs with my son's school stuff (he's homeschooled). Those are games he likes to play. I keep another small stack of games in the upstairs closet that are larger boxes that my son and wife also like to play (TTR, Quacks, Carcassonne, Azul, Jaipur), and then, all the others are downstairs on a kallax sorted however they fit :)
