Re: Long time sporadic gamer, first time poster.

I haven't played much of the new CE; the old one predates Dune. Brilliant game. When we played a lot, we'd use multiple changing powers-- so you really had to plan a definitive strike to get a chance at victory-- and hope other people couldn't stop you. Usually games would end with alliance wins. On...

Re: Settlers of Catan coming to the iPhone

Having just got an iphone - what do I want to get? I use appshopper to notify me when price drops-- I like giving so many apps a go that I don't feel any need to get them right away. Lots of apps drop prices now and again, so it works out well. Games I like marple (logic puzzle), flight control, cr...

Re: EGF Sunday July 19th

Julian- If timing works out, I'd like to try Heads of State , if only to understand the arguments on BGG. I suppose this is a fallback in case Junta doesn't work out (again), so please don't wait for me! I think the way to understand the arguments on bgg is first to understand that some people are ...

18EU

Thanks, Frank and Rob for showing me this one at EGF. My head's still swimming.

I checked it out on bgg, and found out that it's recently been released for print and play:

I'm up for anything. I'll be there from around noon, I think. I was thinking of bringing Antiquity, but I doubt I'll get a chance to learn it in time. Maybe next time. I'd like to play Junta sometime, but not this time. I'd like to play Lifeboats. It fell sort of flat the one and only time I played ...

Well, it's pretty informal, so if July gets paid in August that's ok too.

The rent is paid at the end of each month, $10/night for that month-- I just pop it in an envelope with info, and pop it under the office door.

I think Frank was just being sensible. Euros have lots of little cubes-- children might swallow or choke on them. The game's resale/trade value would be ruined.

Need a volunteer to open and buy refreshments

Come July 14th, I've got a class starting for two months on Tuesday nights, so I'll be missing Billabong. Who wants to take over buying refreshments and paying the rent each month?
