I don't do Bottoscon generally, but definitely for Terminal City if not before!

Found a copy in great condition. Gave my original copy away years ago to a good home when I wasn't playing and now that I'm playing again I feel it needs to be in the collection.

I thought this was a headline from 'The Onion'. It's not.
Google search history suggests many Britons had little idea what they were voting for

Hi All.
I see this group hasn't been too active lately, but I'll take a chance and post here anyway.
A local shop had a nice sale on this game so I picked up the starter set and a few of the expansions. I have been looking around the internet for fan created resourses for the game but cannot find any so hopefully you can help out.

1. Once I get a few plays of the starter set in, what expansions would be best to bring into the game?
2. Is it best to stick with dragons and forget the ground troop aspect at first?
2. It looks like there is no new announced product from WizKids coming. Is there any expectations of more expansions?

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.

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.
