Learned Blood Bowl Team Manager last night. I now have another keeper in the collection. Thanks for taking the loss +Evan Duly​ You must be an awesome teacher of games if your pupil can beat you right after learning it!  :)

Fantastic game it's got so many different mechanics wonderfully blended together.  The expansions are both excellent.

Dungeon Lords now available to play at http://boiteajeux.net. I'm new to the game, looking to play a bunch to learn. For anyone who plays on that site, I am Buckaroo.

WASHINGTON—Saying that any further endeavors of technical skill and imagination were pointless, experts at the Smithsonian Institution reportedly questioned Monday why new art was still being produced after the pinnacle of aesthetic and creative potential was reached in 1990 with Megadeth’s fourth studio album, Rust In Peace.

"This is great news. Just 11 more and they can put out a calendar."

Jen Welter, who starred as a linebacker for 14 years, mostly in the Women’s Football Alliance, and coached men in the Champions Indoor Football league, will join the Arizona Cardinals during training camp and the preseason as the NFL’s first female coach, a move roundly supported by players and fans alike. What do you think?

Played through the introductory scenario for Memoir 44 with my son. Germans won both times. This was the first time either of us have played the game or this system. We both enjoyed it even though this scenario only lasted a few turns each.

Just discovered the line of sight rule for bridges in the base box is incorrect. Would have made the result different.
Best thing was the boy asking to play again soon

Looming 2016 shelfie project. Sharing the rent with the sports gear and library is getting too tight. Something has to give as the collection keeps growing and Boxing day sales are approaching fast.

New (gently) used acquisitions. Played Evolution with the game group. I think it will be a hit with the family. Haven't played the others but when I saw them listed on Craigslist for a reasonable price, I pulled the trigger.

Song of the Day - well, lets make it Band of the Week shall we?  *July Talks: Garden*   I seem to be a little late to the party with these guys but better late than never, right?  I hear some White Stripes and Headstones influences among others, which ...

Ok, here's the haul from the liquidation sale. I may have a problem saying no.

Edit: sorry about the photo quality, didn't look close enough before posting.

Just keep telling yourself how much money you saved.

New York is a rethemed Alhambra. It can only be great!

Story
Introduction
Confessed D&D/Board Game player and Sports geek, watch and read SF/Fantasy TV/movies/books.  Scotch drinker as the opportunity presents itself.  Little known fact (about Scotch) is that the Scotch you are offered by a friend always tastes better than the one in your own collection.   

I love to laugh and besides my wife, kids and some co-workers, Billy Connelly, Monty Python and Lewis Black make me laugh most.  FYI, when South Park is on the money, it is freaking brilliant.  When it goes offside and misses, it is offensive as hell.  

You will probably see me singing in my car when the right song is on, and I do know I will never sing for a living but why let that stop me? 
                 

Bragging rights
Have worked professionally in one industry for 25 years (and counting) starting at an entry level position and progressing up to General Manager. Took a step back (my decision) in order to be able to live 5 minutes from work and still like what I do. Kids are both Tae Kwon Do Black Belts (one is 3rd degree, the other 2nd degree) and honour roll students.
