The games I received for Christmas :D I think the one I'm most excited about is Twilight Struggle. The only tricky part will be finding time that works well with a board game buddy so we can actually play the thing.
My family isn't all that much into board gaming (they'd be okay with lighter games like Ticket to Ride), but I'm hoping to get at least my Dad and sister in on a game of Forbidden Desert.
Everyone should be excited about Twilight Struggle! Not only is it a great game, it rekindled my interest in history as well. I can't wait til my kids are a bit older and learning history so I can play with them.
The inverse proximity principle plays out. The greater the distance from an event (time or distance) the less certain we are the event occurred. Another example breakfast. Picture is profound, telling and quite nice shades of blue.
It makes me happy to know how thorough some companies are in thinking through the possible ramifications of their decisions regarding the features of their products. Like Toshiba. I think I can sleep more soundly now that I know they have considered even the Zombie Apocalypse in their business movements :D
Oh my... Google is now an ISP. And they have a free option (one time $300 construction fee). Google, why is it that you seem so potentially evil, but I can't help but want to take part in what you're offering?
