Here's my quick review of Fortune and Glory, based on two group plays (with four and five players) and one solo play.
 
I soloed Fortune and Glory this evening. It took an hour and went smoothly. Fortunately, I had played twice before with someone who knows the rules intimately, so I didn't have to puzzle out too many rules issues.

I also won rather handily, thanks to two high-fortune items being relatively lightly guarded. The Nazis were doing well, though. They had nine soldiers on the board by the end of the game, thanks to a speedy zeppelin.

Good game. I highly recommend it. :)ο»Ώ

+Gene Chiu I definitely value production quality, it's just really hard to justify that price to my wife. I already did it once for Xia: Legends Of A Drift System. There was much disdain involved. πŸ˜‰ο»Ώ

I got a new game (Fortune and Glory, from Flying Frog Productions). Oscar got a box (until I put it in the recycling bin). πŸ˜€ο»Ώ

I'm waiting for Bill Maher to start his election special, which he will do when Trump stops speaking at the convention, and I'm thinking: "This could go on all night."ο»Ώ

I'm not usually a fan of photographic manipulation, but this one is well done.
 
This was a cell that hung out over Colo Spgs, CO last week. I stacked about 80 photos to get the flow of the storm.

Fine work from an old pal in the software industry who does good things with a camera. :)

You don't need to be a biology wizard to know that two different species of animals cannot originate from the same mother. Or so we've been led to believe anyway. But take a look at these pictures and prepare to have everything you've ever known turned upside down!

I hardly ever go into Fry's any more. The only reason to go is if I already know exactly what I want, and it's such a simple item that can't possibly make a mess of selling it. Today's trip is a fine example of why I don't go there. My headset broke, so I thought I'd get a new one at Fry's. First, I had to find them. The idiots put a sale sign over the sign on the end cap that would have told me which aisle had headsets. Fine. I find headsets, sans help from anyone at the store. Then I find one that might suit me, but I can't tell if it has a USB connection. So I find someone (admittedly, a nice, helpful person) and he runs off to find out if the thing does USB. The folks who supposedly know don't know, so they open it. We could have done that in the aisle and saved that ten minutes. In the meantime, I've found another one that has a USB connection and is $10 less. (I''m sensitive to the price of headsets, because previous experience tells me I'll have to return the first two before I get one that works worth a damn, and I may not be able to return it, given the wonderful return policy at Fry's.) So I get to the checkout counter, and the clerk tells me it's twice the price I expect. The sign on the shelf doesn't actually correspond to the product placed directly over the sign. Now I'll buy a headset online, which means that my friends will just have to put up with me not having a headset today. And that was my last trip to Fry's. Misleading pricing, a return policy designed purely to penalize customers, and a general air of "We just want to take your money, not actually help you" is the trifecta that will send me shopping anywhere else.

At first, I had a very poor experience with a seemingly uncaring and bureaucratic agency. Then some good people who work at Austin Energy stepped up and took care of my issue. So there are good people there, and I'll adjust my rating accordingly.

I ordered a pizza. The driver took it somewhere else and tried to give me someone else's pizza. Then he went and got my pizza (which had been in the hands of someone else, of course). I refused that, since who knows what may have been done to it. Then I called the store to reverse my credit card transaction. I waited on hold for 10 minutes and 53 seconds, only to have the phone system disconnect me. In the next call, I got someone who was clearly not too versed on the system. Who knows whether the transaction was actually reversed? So now I'll have to watch my credit card account for a couple days. Given that delivering the right pizza to the right address is more than they can do, I can find somewhere else to buy a pizza.

I called at 10 AM. They said they'd be along between 5 and 7 PM. I called again at 6:30 PM. They said they'd be along between 7:30 and 8 PM. Now it's just about 9 PM, and I haven't seen or heard from them. And now I'm calling someone else. Get service anywhere else.
