    General chatter - discuss anything here

    Pretty good (and pretty comprehensive) Christmas buyers' guide from Ars Technica: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018/12/ars-technicas-ultimate-board-game-buyers-guide-2018-edition/

    I snagged mine around 5pm yesterday, and it says it's arriving on 21 December.

    As per this thread on BGG: something weird has been going on with the price of Concordia on Amazon over the past week or so, in that for short periods of time (15 minutes or so), it randomly plummets to around £15-16, then goes back up to full price again. If you check regularly, and are quick off the mark, you might be able to snag a bargain. It's apparently legit – people have been receiving their copies, and they're not counterfeit.

    Oh, I’ll definitely be back as often as I can make it. I was sat opposite Jim for Auztralia, and playing Twilight Struggle next to your Le Havre. I’m afraid I didn’t get the guy’s name I was playing TS with, but he was very helpful. I didn’t really mind missing the bus, as I didn’t want to duck out of a game part way through and spoil it for everyone else. Though I was a bit worried that the car park would be locked. Were you the chap carrying Lords of Xidit when you left?

    Time Trap

    It doesn’t seem to be included in Prime.

    Well, I had a lovely time - really enjoyed it. Very friendly and inviting bunch of people. Started off being invited into a game of Castles of Burgundy (I lost by a mile), then played Twilight Struggle with a very patient and helpful chap (I lost, but didn’t do as badly as I expected, given that I’m rubbish at Twilight Struggle). After that got invited into a game of Auztralia, which was good but ran quite long so I ended up missing the last bus back to the park and ride. Had a splendid day.

    I'm quite excited – for the first time in literally years, I have a weekend to myself which happens to coincide with a meeting of Beyond Monopoly in York. Really looking forward to it.

    Shamelessly stolen from a thread on BGG, there are some pretty good deals in the Thirsty Meeples clearance sale: https://thirstymeeples.co.uk/collections/clearance-games

    I had the same difficult choice. I'd have liked all three, but went for the one that other people are more likely to want to play (Awkward Guests).

    I recently backed Awkward Guests, which Dice Tower have been raving about. Not a mini in sight.

    What are you playing?

    Dammit, Hexx.

    To be fair, I think she'd probably still be too young.
