  1. Boardgames - suggestions please

    For language free favorites I recommend: Catan (language on cards but also icons) I'm the boss (excellent competitive bidding game no language requirements) For Sale (quick, fun, silly, no language, takes 10 minutes) Inca Gold [aka Diamate!] (Press your luck, 8 player, no language) Bohnanza (unique, plant and harvest beans while trying to manipulate opponents through gifting mechanic, no language) Ticket to ride (resource placement, no language, a little harder to explain if there is a large language barrier) The games are fun easy to teach even if there are serious language barriers require no reading to play the game. They are all still commonly available and have stood the test of time. I've played some of these with Mandarin language speakers who don t have a single English word to their name and the games have been competitive and fun
  2. Siri could use thoughts/prayers

    Hugs and sympathy. You are in our prayers and i wish i could offer more.
  3. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Always did like tongue with a hearty mustard on a coarse bread. The combination of flavor and textures is intense. I've had pork and beef tongue, they aren't staples because preparation is a pain but I won't turn. It down if someone else is doing the work You can keep the kidney pie though, yuck. I am not a fan of most organ meats (liver, gland, kidney, lung, intestine, brain) icky from a mental standpoint and the texture is usually awful. It's been 9 years since I was served adrenal gland at a uraguyan bbq and I'm still traumatized...

    I have to recommend the kindle reader for smartphones. Easy to use, easy to read, lots of good books at 99 cents or less, and it downloads in about 5 min. On top of that it's pretty easy on the battery, allowing it to be useful without killing the phone in an hour.
  5. RPG Tablecloth II – An Innovative Battleground

    Well for better or worse I went for this. The idea looked cool, it fit my table and even if we're not using the actual gaming surface, it should look pretty cool

    Best of luck. It a always awesome finding a place where you get paid to do what you want to do where you want to do it. You can keep the cold though... seriously, take it back, I've had enough now.
  7. Happy Birthday Grey Horde

    Happy Birthday to you! may a rain of minis fall upon your mini storage area!

    Given these two topics running at the same time, I can not not day anything. When I was 3 I was wearing a 100% synthetic sweater and i tripped and fell into the communial bonfire at a campsite. I was not immediately incinerated but a coal from the fire slipped up my arm and the plastic melted and sealed it in place eventually burning me to the bone. Any other fabric would have burned off and left less damage or at least frayed away instead of becoming an insulated shield. I never wear synthetics without some natural fibers (preferably all of them) and 45 years later instill have the scar to remind me why...
  9. Post Your Hobby Wishlist Items

    That's one way of making really unique conversions....
  10. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    If its the store over by hurstborne, I've been to that store. The owner is weird (and remember this is from a guy with a 9 foot striped carnivorous hopping marsupial as an avatar). The shop keeps hours I don't understand, the clientele never seem or be populous or buy much, and he reeks of over-friendly and stay-away vibes.on the plus side he keeps good stock and is willing to replace dried out paint pots and I have never seen anyone but him running the store. I have dealt with worse...

    I have to respectfully disagree. Money that is fun and exciting to look at can be kept rather than spent. I think its awesome and the cost to produce something like this is not significantly more expensive than producing a normal boring coin. Rob
  12. We were jumped by three Light Cruisers

    I reccognize the board background but not the ships. What are they? Nicely painted, enough detail to give them good display presence and enough distinction to be able to see and identify them from the other side of a large table.
  13. Haldir is apparently taking a looooooong space flight to somewhere and his pics can only travel back to us at the speed of light...
  14. I have basecoats finished and some derailing work too. One of my displays is going to be more difficult the. I imagined, I may have to WIP it for suggestions but it's still moving forward right now. Present half of one exchange is bought, the second is waiting on the 12 days of reaper... Many thanks to the keepers of the secret Fangard and Robinh for keeping this herd of cats moving forward. I know it's not easy and it's one of the high points of my year! Thanks everyone for participating!
  15. Gloomhaven (Second Printing)

    Should have noted earlier. I got mine just after thanksgiving. Looks impressive looking for an excuse to play, maybe during the holidays
