November 2nd Saturday gaming I was also fooled by November 2nd Saturday gaming until I realized it's "November - 2nd Saturday - Gaming". It reminds me of the Panda who strolls into a saloon, opens fire, and then tosses a poorly edited encyclopedia on the bar while he exits. The encyclopedia states, "Panda - Eats shoots, and leaves."

I hope that has no grammar errors in it or I'll look like a fool. Well, bigger fool... like the person who posts after the poster.

I'd be up for any Stefan Feld game. Does anyone have the new Discworld game? I'm hoping it'll arrive at my place from Thoughthammer before Saturday.

November 2nd Saturday gaming ALSO!... I just got the new Spielbox Magazine, which has more maps for Die Bergen von Burgund... So I'll bring them and that.
ALSO Part Deux... Strippers, JFK and Stalin IS better. ABG: Now standing for "Arlington Boardgames and Grammar".

Kings of Air and Steam Sounds interesting. I'll check it out and we'll talk on Saturday.
Thanks,

November 2nd Saturday gaming Mike, I have not played Domaine, but looked at it on BGG and I think I might like it, if you don't mind teaching it.
Thanks!

4th Saturday Gaming Unfortunately, I'm going to Knoxville, TN for a reunion with my stupid family. Big Grin
Don't worry, I'm bringing a trunk-full of board games! and, planning on infiltrating the minds of my nieces and nephews by taking them to Sci Fi City's store nearby ... Mwah hah hah!!! -Chris

4th Saturday Gaming Update... I brought Thebes, Stone Age, and Incan Gold to Knoxville to play with my family. Nephew wanted to play 24X7, nobody else was interested. Teaching for all three games consisted of me explaining a few things and him saying, "Yeah, yeah, whatever, I think I get it, let's just play!" My nephew goes crazy and we go to Sci Fi City Game Store (very nice!) and he starts eyeing Power Grid, so I buy it for him. We played both sides of the map. He's 14. Let's just say... "My work here is done." ...another gamer indoctrinated. Chris

First gaming in 2012! 2nd Satuday, 1/14 I'll be there! I'm bringing RISK: Legacy if anyone is interested in perhaps starting a campaign. And, of course, I love new games. I'm also bringing parts of CAPO (Bob A will bring the rest) for playtesting. Mark, Bob, and I have played it and enjoyed it.

Fourth Saturday gaming! My attendance will be a last minute decision. I would like to continue the RISK: Legacy campaign if anyone else is interested, but don't feel like you can't play it without me.
I'm always up for VINHOS, as long as I don't have to teach it. I know Kent loves teaching it, though.
My gaming mojo always remains in a revved up position, so no problem there.
I hope to be there.

Fourth Saturday gaming! Hawaii is available for preorder (due Q1/12) at Thoughthammer for $25.97 plus shipping. I've ordered it and when it and some other stuff come in it'll exceed $100 for free shipping. Cost to add to an existing order is $.50, if you're interested let me know and I'll add it to my order.

2nd Saturday gaming, Feb 11 I'll be there! I'd like to learn Ora et Labora, too. I'd also like to get in another round of RISK Legacy. Chris

2nd Saturday gaming, Feb 11 Well, obviously, I didn't make it back. It took 2 1/2 hours to sign on the contract paperwork... and listen to the Realtor regale us with extensive Real Estate humor.
On a different note, we played our 8th game of RISK: Legacy in my Monday night group and the game is getting wild and exciting! I think this "consumable game" concept is awesome. I'd like to play it again in our Saturday group... I promise... no spoilers!

Denoument... Our contract was accepted and, if inspection and financing go through, we'll move into our new place in mid-April. First order of business... set up the game room!

2nd Saturday Gaming - March 10, 2012 Isn't tomorrow a second Saturday? I hope we're gaming, because I'm showing up at John's at 1 PM or so. I'm itching to learn something new... although I will bring Vinhos... Just in case (He said, dreamily.) ..................Chris

See you there around 1pm. Anyone up for Eminent Domain?


Dan's first post! I'm so proud. I would be happy to play with you. In fact, I'm happy to try to teach it, botch it up and have you teach it! Oh, wait... that's what happened!

No Foolin', April game day approaches! Will try to get by for a game or two later. Busy doing moving stuff now. Game Room must be functional before I consider the house in "Move-in Condition".

2nd Saturday Gaming in May, May 12 Did I read this correctly... last game day for a while?!?! If I did, I wouldn't mind hosting a 2nd or 4th Saturday once in a while... for a while. My collection is not as wonderful as John's but it's OK. Biggest issue ... VERY limited visitor parking at our place. Chris

2nd Saturday Gaming in May, May 12 Whew. Sorry for the understanding. Not intending (or wanting) to horn in on it! Thanks for the clarification. I guess I didn't read very carefully. Thanks!

Fourth Saturday gaming - May 26th My mom is coming into town so it's unlikely I'll get over there. This past week of gaming has only whet my appetite for gaming, not worn it out... so this is painful.

Fourth Saturday gaming - May 26th Manhattan Project!?!?!?! Whoa, I might have to send my mom packin' for that one! I loved it too. I ordered it and the expansion when I got home.

Gaming 8/11 - beat the heat with board games! I will be there starting at 1. Hoping to stay a long time this time. I'm up for any game. For no apparent reason I am itching to play Navegador, Eclipse, Castles of Burgundy, and Caylus.
Chris

4th Saturday gaming, 8/25 I will be there. I will get there at 1 but probably need to leave around dinner time. Anybody up for Vinhos? ...Chris
