An Earth-like planet? Our Kepler spacecraft discovered first Earth-size planet in the habitable zone of another star! The artist's concept depicts Kepler-186f , the first validated Earth-size planet to orbit a distant star in the habitable zone—a range of distance from a star where liquid water might pool on the planet's surface. The discovery of Kepler-186f confirms that Earth-size planets exist in the habitable zones of other stars and signals a significant step closer to finding a world similar to Earth.

Riddle me this one, Batman!
Russia is a scary place, full of vodka, krokodil, and banyas. But none of those things can explain the mysterious appearance of a random car, as it seems to materialize out of thin air. Is it actually a ghost? A remnant from the Philadelphia Experiment? Or something far more sinister?

Got in three games of Race For The Galaxy over the last week. I like it: It's like San Juan taken to the next level. It's a good game, but not #22 on BGG good. Very little is intuitive. Even the basic roles like Explore I ask myself, "Am I doing this right?" Let alone the Consume roles. As with most games it'll feel more natural the more I play, but still after three games play doesn't feel remotely so.

May be worth looking into Keldon's Race for the Galaxy AI for local computer (I can't remember if it's Windows only or not). It's a decent way to get some play time and figure out how things work. I also second Rahdo's runthrough of the game as he goes into a lot of detail about how things work.

The SO and I just finished an epic game of Carcassonne. We used every expansion that came in our Big Box: Inns & Cathedrals, Traders & Builders, The Flying Machines, The Messengers, The Ferries, The Gold Mines, Mage & Witch, The Robbers, and The Crop Circles. It was a blast, even if we had to keep breaking out the rule book to remind ourselves how some of the mini expansions we don't often use worked. Awesome game.

We had a lot of fun, but I wouldn't play that way all the time, or even often. Some of the expansions we don't care for, like The Robbers and Mage & Witch, but some add a nice touch. Our favorite configuration is Inns & Cathedrals, Traders & Builders, and The Gold Mines. Makes the game more complex, but not at all clunky.

I wish it was the weekend already. I need a faster time machine.

I'd totally have my own kid by now if the claw didn't keep dropping him.
Police say the boy's mom found him missing from their apartment Monday.

Of course, there are very good reasons why I don't have kids: https://medium.com/the-nib/b342d516e24

Here's to hoping the trend continues.

Agreed, +Daniel Fazekas. But at least that number is going down.

Too busy having fun on TableTop Day to post these then, so here you go now. We got in a ton of games, only about half of them pictured.

I tried Click Clack. I ended the game twice with negative points!
