My 2012 Nexus 7 has decided to lock itself in an endless boot cycle. I've been able to get to Recovery mode and flush the cache, but it doesn't seem to have to done any good (and won't let me back into Recovery mode.)

Because I can't switch it off, I've just got to let it run until it powers down. 

It's on Android 5.1

Time to replace it?

Tried updating it (or downgrading the OS) with wugfish to no avail. Thanks for the advice anyway.

I've joined this community as we fully intend to visit Swancon one year. It was meant to be this year, but our finances were drained by a move, so hopefully next year.

New arrival. Had no idea this existed until I saw it in a London game shop.

Was the BBC adaptation popular? That seems like an obscure setting for a family game.

I have already played Saboteur 2 (someone else's copy so I picked up my own.) It improves Saboteur no end with the additional roles.

Origin is fairly light and looks beautiful but my copy had a piece that was the wrong size, so I need to get it replaced.

The Little Prince is a surprisingly mean game for how beautiful it looks. Plays 5 in about half an hour which is perfect for my lunch time group.

I've picked up some Monsterpocalypse sets when it was collectible so I was glad to find the two player set they released at the end of its run - what's more it's two factions I didn't have (so it's basically Godzilla vs Ultraman out of the box.)

Elkfest was marked down, and I've been trying to pick up the Kosmos two player line even though I'm awful at dexterity games.

And I'd been after Colonialism and Gloria Mundi for some time.

Got to play Magic Realm again after 34 years! Unfortunately my Amazon was killed by a demon on day 24. She was avenged by the Berserker who won the game - after the Magician got cursed with losing his notoriety and all his gold.

Still a fantastic game after all these years.

+Mischa Krilov We were lucky in that we had someone who'd played it recently to teach us  - and we decided to play it cooperatively (although there's only one winner.) It's so different to other fantasy games it's hard to get a sense of how to play from the rulebook (and there are better rulebooks available than the one that came in the box.) There are also tutorials on Youtube. I think it's worth the effort to learn and I don't think it's as complex once you start playing.

Corto - a game based on the legendary European comic book hero Corto Maltese. Unique combination of adventure and area control game. Wonderful graphics all taken from Hugo Pratt illustrations. Box is huge for what is basically a card game.

I liked this. It didn't over complicate things (Bruxelles I'm looking at you) but had enough going on to be interesting
