    I'm off to London next week to work in Tooting, and I'll be around the Streatham area too. Have a few games I'd be up for selling/trading. City of Kings (including realistic resources/acrylic player overlays) Endure the Stars (plus KS exclusives) Masmorra + a few extras Puerto Rico Formula D (some box damage) D-Day Dice

    ONRUSH - A New Breed of Arcade Action

    Trackmania does massive multiplayer racing, but with ghosts.

    ONRUSH - A New Breed of Arcade Action

    I think it shows a very astute reading of the market. I'm not sure the concept of "winning" really matters as much as it once did (apart, perhaps, from Chicken Dinners). With the rise of streaming and the like, I suspect the next generation are more interested in cool shit happening, rather than arbitrarily coming first by virtue of having spent longer than everyone else learning some courses. Blur was great, but I often had fantastic races where I came in 14th and didn't care. I loved Split/Second, and spent hours refining my skills to get Rank 1, and while I miss those heady times I think those days are gone now. If you want games to be inclusive, streamer friendly, and to cut through the swathe of other things your typical teen gamer might be playing you've got to deliver the dopamine shots in a different fashion. To re-evaluate racing games and take the actual racing out is a stroke of genius. It's a bit like Overwatch taking the detailed K/D ratios out and just flagging who did cool stuff at the end. I'm not sure this is going to be a commercial goliath, but if it gets enough of a community behind it I suspect it could do pretty well. In many ways, I suspect the older rllmuk crowd shaking their fist at it and saying it's confusing is probably a good sign.

    Star Wars!

    I've got 10 TIE Fighters. It's a fucking marvellous change and might get me back to playing the game again.

    Sci Fi recommendations

    Yes, a good book and film I was wondering if there was anything recently released along similar lines. I quite like Stephen Baxter style stuff, but I'd like that level of realism with a first encounter style story.... perhaps I'll have a browse on the amazonz.

    Sci Fi recommendations

    Love Hyperion. Has anyone got a suggestion for a fairly hard sci-fi book about first contact? I'm thinking a more modern take on Rendezvous with Rama or something.

    It was exaggeration for comic effect.

    What are you playing?

    Played Lisboa this week. Am now selling my collection and buying Lacerda games. The Gallerist turned up this morning. Lisboa is exceptional.

    What are you playing?

    I think it's unlikely I'd get the version wrong after playing it for 8 hours A friend bought TI3 cheap. Played it without the expansions, or FAQ. The original Strategy cards aren't great and there's an exploit with fighters that can wreck the game. But it was OK. A bit 90s.

    What are you playing?

    First play of TI3 yesterday. Took absolutely hours, and absolutely a product of its time. We also didn't read the FAQ and played with the original rules, which were a bit shit (and also gamable). That said, it had a sort of austere beauty to it - like chewing your food 20 times before swallowing, perhaps it did us some good. Then did our first game of Millenium Blades. Mixed reaction, but by and large we really enjoyed it.

    Unlikely I'd want an LCG? [slowly turns his head towards shelves with about 15 LCG games on them] ..... no..... no, you're quite right Which TI is it? Also might be interested in Tammany Hall, depending on price.

    I'm banned from there as the guy who runs it is an absolute tit. And I don't mean Pat, remarkably. I'm the only person not banned from Pat's group.
