Returning to the main list after clicking on an item in the feed and viewing the article in the new slide out panel my mouse wheel no longer works to scroll through the feed.

Fun first time playing Timeline last night.  "The Taming of Fire" was my sure-thing last card.

I need to go buy this. One of the biggest things I hated about learning history was that I could never grasp where events fell in a timeline compared to other events. This would definitely  give me some insight that I've been missing.

My first experience with a print and play (Utopia Engine) was fun but did not end well. I feel unconscious while activating a construct and slept through the end of the world. I need to improve my dice rolling...

I wasn't sure what to expect but am very impressed by the quality of the materials and gameplay. What other print and plays (solo or not) should I try out?

Let the FCC know you don't want ISPs deciding what or how you access the internet.  This form is sent to the government so full names and addresses are required but don't let that put you off making your voice heard.

One of the better explanations of net neutrality I've come across.

Please, send an email (using their form) and/or call.
The future of the open Internet is in your hands. And yet you have proposed rules that would actually break it. Your proposed path would open the door to widespread discrimination online. It would give Internet service providers the green light to implement pay-for-priority schemes that would be ...

From the frying pan into the fire: Having left their fallen comrades behind, Brothers Zael and Omino find themselves surrounded in the genestealer lair...

My first game is not going well. But really enjoying it!

+Nate Parker yeah, the game ended right after that pic was taken. Flamethrower was pointed in the right direction and I was able to attack but i barely scratched them. Gotta work on my swarm management.

I've played very few of these but I'm interested to see the results!
We are trying to find out what is the best board game from 8 of the most prolific board game designers. To that effect, we are doing a Board Game Designer

Defeating Baron Blade's mad crash-the-moon-into-the-earth scheme had left our team members with less than 10 HP each, and yet he still had his forcefield, backlash field (which dealt lighting damage to whomever attacked him) and 25 HP... things were looking very grim.

But then...

Fanatic - whose game so far had been fairly lackluster but quite painful (only 4 HP left) - braves the backlash field and brings out some Wrathful Retribution reducing Baron's HP to exactly 0 (and her own to 1).

Quite the surprising and epic ending to our first game of Sentinels of the Multiverse!  I hope to play again soon.

Anyone else annoyed that friend's +1's are now considered reshares and showing up in your stream?  Is there a way to stop this?

See the comment by user 161719. Should be the third down highlighted in yellow. Terrifying if true, but even if it isn't it makes you think: Today a few emails, a few phone calls... but tomorrow? 
I live in a country generally assumed to be a dictatorship. One of the Arab spring countries. I have lived through curfews and have seen the outcome...
