Thrills! Chills! More games that you know what to do with!!
Who is up for a totally FREE* day of gaming?!
I figured we'd aim for, oooh, this Saturday, starting at, say, 1pm? How does that sound?
Will I see you? What do you want to play?




* Surcharges may apply

Pick me!
I'd like to play Churchill (yes, that's a bit heavier), Nippon, Mombasa... and I'm always up for the classics... and always up for racing games. How much do you think the surcharge could be. I wouldn't want to pay more than a few hundred dollars to play.

We plan on being there. Given the date... I'd love to get a game of Merchant of Venus in. Would be up for Mombasa as well

What is the relation between the 26th and Merchant of Venus?

I would be up for MoV also. Would that entail additional surcharges? How much is this going to cost me!?!??! I also want to learn Steam Time.

It's not the 26th specifically but the day after (hint NOT Easter).....

I hope to be able to come. If I am able, it won't be until around 5 or 6.

I'll be there at 1 and I'll be at the table that isn't MoV. Still trying to find the significance of March 27... but I haven't played MoV in about 20 years (when my kids started to make jokes about Stellar Gas) so I may have forgotten a critical detail. I'd give Mombasa another try and the same goes for Steam Time (though I'd need a review of the rules).

Family is visiting this weekend so sadly, I will not be able to make it. Even more tragic, between the Gathering, dealing with the new RV, and the beach holiday, it may be a while before I see y'all. Try to have fun without me (it'll be tough, I know) and pay John lots of surcharges so that things will be free by the time I show up again.

I would also consider, as an alternative to MoV, to play XIA. I have a copy, but don't know how to play. Does anyone want to teach?

Hmmm, not sure how this is going to work. I am planning to be there at 1:00, but I was going to start charging John surcharges to allow me to play games at his place. I guess we'll let the lawyers hash it out.




Anyway, in the mean time, I'm up for MoV and also have not figured out the meaning of 3/27 with the game. And how dare you Larry for letting something as trivial as family take priority over gaming. You should charge him double surcharges John. If I feel up for it, I'll bring Thunder Alley to scratch Chris's racing game itch, but its kind of heavy and I'm not sure how I feel about lugging it all the way there on the bus and walking. Besides, I was really thinking of bringing my copy of Five Tribes if anyone is interested.

Re: MOV




I think it is either the heavy easter theme that runs through MOV or its the birthday of someone who has MOV as their favorite game.

I'm def up for Nippon again. What rules did we get wrong? That would be my #1 preference now.
