Was a pleasure! We usually have a little bigger crowd, but it was good to play one on one tonight.
 
Had the honor of play testing an early prototype of +Brett Myers​' Mad Max: Fury Road style board game tonight at Madison, WI Board Games and Beers. Still in development but shows a lot of promise. Brett designed Rome: City of Marble and looks like he's got another winner to come. Thanks for letting me test it with you.

recent Instagram pic in my Instagram plugin instead of the picture from my
article. It does it nearly every time. I'm tempted to disconnect it and
figure out another way to post.
