Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Hahma,

I have play testing credit on the first expansion, and own the second one. I like the system, but have trouble getting enough players--as I feel that it plays best with all six. So I...

Re: The New York City Gang Of Four

Nice, John. Theme is an important component of many of our games, and we often suit the old figures to such a "repurposing." Although we usually play at my house, rotating the Game Master among the...

Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?

Saw Professor Marsden and the Wonder Women, and sadly, I give it only a B. Fascinating subject, but thought the script was poor and confusing. Instead read The Secret Life of Wonder Woman by Jill...

Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?

Just saw the new Blade Runner 2049, and give it an A-. I especially enjoyed how it followed the style of visuals and music of the original. I told some of the young movie staff when I went in that...

Star Trek Discovery

Can't see it any longer, but I get the impression that the first two episodes, only one of which I've seen, are just a prologue to the main story. So a lot of the initial plot...
