I've been on an ancient history kick lately, particularly Ancient Greece. So I've had my eye on board games set in that ancient world. Both Akrotiri and Cyclades are on my wish list. What other games should I be looking into?

Ah, the ever-changing nature of language...
With Oxford Dictionary’s addition of the verb 'MacGyver' to the official lexicon, we pay homage to the almighty hack.

I loved how in the first episode (IIRC) of Stargate: SG-1, Samantha Carter commented to Col. O'Neil (Richard Dean Anderson) that they had to Macguyver together a bunch of computers to get the Earth stargate to work.

"A new study by Adam Lankford, of the University of Alabama, which will be presented next week at the annual conference of the American Sociological Association, shows a strong correlation between the availability of guns and the prevalence of gun massacres. With the same certainty that David Hemenway’s work established the link between the number of guns in a society and the number of gun killings, we now know that there is a correlation between the availability of guns and the major public assaults that have been a part of American life since Columbine."

Yep. This lends credence to the argument that more guns do not, in fact, make us safer, as some claim.

Archaeologists in Greece have discovered the ruins of an ancient palace with important archaic inscriptions dating back to the Mycenaean Age, the culture ministry said Tuesday.

Just finished playing Prosperity. It's one of those games that, while not amazing, still deserves a better rating than it's gotten on BGG.

+Ted Anderson If you can find a good deal on it I think it's worth it. I got this in trade, as it happens.

Our dog, Keira, always lies under the table when we play games.

Same with my dogs, they both lay under the table and the cat sits in a chair. Once they hear the game being put up though, they get up and stretch for play time.  I started a routine with them of play after games and they don't let me forget it.

IIRC, published by Queen, so the error is understandable.

My laminated set has the original board on one side and a color blind variation on the other. Another laminated sheet has the two new boards on opposite sides of each other.
