    General chatter - discuss anything here

    It'll be fine. I'm terribly precious about my board games. I did tear up one card but most of them got thrown into the box under the insert, it didn't feel quite as bad. Putting stickers on the board is fun. Just play it, you'll love it.

    Sadly, I own everyone of those games apart from Elder Sign which I don't really want.'

    The rulebook says 2nd edition. Send me a list of what you've got for swaps and I'll have a look.

    Up for swaps I've got Tikal, Rio Grande edition, and 1960:Making of the President, Z Man edition. Both great condition. Anyone looking to trade?

    Bargain buys for everyone.

    I've ordered Corto and Smugglers. Some great prices on there.

    Do you fancy swapping your Tokaido for my Fog of Love?

    I thought it was a lot more than £60!

    Anybody living near a Travelling Man it might be worth popping in to have a last look at their sale. Only a few days to go but they've upped the discounts so anything that was 25% off is now 50% off. I bought a few, um quite a few....., new games including Agra, which looks amazingly beautiful, Ex Libris, Majesty, La Granja and also a couple of expansions for Raiders of the North Sea. Having now realised that I also have a board game crate arriving in the next couple of days and several kickstarters about to land I think I need to stop buying stuff.

    The Kickstarter Group Thread

    The second printing of Bargain Quest is currently on kickstarter. It looked wonderful on the shut up and sit down review so I've gone all in for the deluxe edition.

    What are you playing?

    I wonder whether playing with two characters is making it easier? I know you've got less options to cover the board but you have more control as your turn comes round quicker and you're getting a much higher chance of gathering the cards you need for a cure. With four players the cards get spread out more and you have to work a lot harder to get them collected. You could try playing with a dummy player or two and see if it changes the balance.

    Oh my god. Is it too much to hope this might be the start of a number of 2000AD movies? I'd love a Robohunter film and Strontium Dog, obviously.

    What are you playing?

    I'm enjoying reading your write-up. Have you thought about playing using a dummy player? We played with 3 but used a 4th character to allow another friend to jump in and give us the flexibility of more roles. It worked very well and we'll be doing that again when we tackle season 2.

    No, I bought it a few months ago after listening to one of the Shut up & sit down podcasts. Didn't play it at UKGE as we were trialling lots of games for potential purchase. I just can't see us getting it to the table again, we have too many other games to play as it is.
