Ruminating Inconsequentially

How did we ever make it through the last month without any Terri Schiavo tirades on Boardgamegeek? Can't say I missed the discussion. Can say I was kind of surprised that no one said anything. There are way too many people ready to speak on this issue based upon emotion and events in their own lives with little or no understanding of why this case was so different. Or did I miss a thread? Did they get deleted as soon as they were posted? Is everyone on BGG still sick of politics a mere 5 months after the Presidential election?

It has been a slow game week for me. Got in several games of Memoir '44, GIPF and YINSH, but nothing new. Must say that I like all 3 of these games more as I play them more. Played quite a bit of Connect Four with my 5 year old, also.

Have been reading the rules for Manifest Destiny the latest game from GMT. I'm not sure what I found so appealing about this game that I pre-ordered it, looks kind of silly after reading the directions (telegraph and railroad advances, yes, but story-telling and rock-and-roll advances?). A friend of mine ordered it also, so it will probably get played before too long. That is the same friend who owns Europe Engulfed, another game I have been looking forward to playing.

Have also been reading the rules for TI3. OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHhhh. Can't wait to get a chance to play it. I bought it as soon as it was released, I don't regret that decision, but I still haven't had a chance to take it for a spin.

Keythedral sits on my game shelf, unplayed. I really want to play some more War of the Ring,and Entdecker but that may be a pipe-dream. And, for some reason 1830 has been beckoning me. I haven't played a game of this railroad building classic in years. Mallworld and Settlers of Nurnburg sit unplayed also, as does Die Macher, McMulti and Kings and Things but those three are on the perpetual wait-list.

Too bad we didn't gain an hour each day with this Daylight Saving Time, (ie 25 hour days). With some planning there might be enough extra hours in the week to get in some good gaming.

Game on, Dudes.

Don't you steal my pretentious blog name!

It's been slow for me gaming wise too.. that's why my blog is empty.

I changed the name from a pretentious noun to a pretentious verb so that I couldn't be sued for millions of dollars for name infringement.

Ooops. Should I have admitted that?
I'll see you in court..
Man those are some nice games that are wasting away in your cold, damp shelves.

If you want to send them to a sunnier location, let me know! :)
