Turkey Thursday, Black Friday GAMING SATURDAY, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday...
Lots of important days this week, but one really stands out!




I suspect that many of us aren’t able to spend this weekend with our relatives...if you are in this category come join in fourth Saturday virtual gaming at 1pm.

I learned a few new (to me) games at BGG Con @Home. Mostly light filler stuff like Kingdomino, Chakra and Flaming Pyramids. I also learned Rajas of the Ganges: The Dice Game which was a little meatier. I played with 5 though which I do NOT recommend. There was way too much down time between turns.

I also learned The Crew which is a co-op trick-taking game with 3-5 players.

In addition to various games on BGA and yucata, I also got in a game of Concordia on boiteajeux.net. The interface was pretty decent, felt more like yucata and less like BGA. Not sure if it was a browser thing or just a glitch but in Firefox it would not alert me when it was my turn. Fortunately I was in a voice channel on Discord so my opponent could tell me when they were done and it was easy enough to refresh.

Cheryl started a new job a couple weeks ago so we're just sort of taking things one day at a time. I *think* I will be around on Saturday but not entirely sure at this point. She has to work on Thursday so if anyone else is around Thursday before 7pm and wants to game, let me know (although that should probably be a different thread!)

Hi Rick. I believe that you only get updates on BaJ when you are online if you are a premium member. When I'm playing real time, I don't get an alert, but the screen does the other moves and my name lights up when it's my turn.
