  • @Ghoosdum I was about to point out that event to @MAGIC as well, though I had assumed you had already told him about Jungle Jim's. @GHoosdum said: @MAGIC said: Beer Czar checking in. I'm in Cinci now so i have access to new o…
  • It was a close race. Next stop: 1 billion.
  • I've been having graphical glitches/freezing issues myself for the last week. I noticed they occurred around the time Microsoft pushed out the Meltdown/Spectre patches. In my case, I have an Intel processor, but my video card is an RX 480. Specifica…
  • Update regarding Belgium's view on this issue: https://www.engadget.com/2017/11/22/belgium-moves-to-ban-star-wars-battlefront-2-style-loot-boxes/
  • https://www.engadget.com/2017/11/16/battlefront-ii-belgium-gambling-investigation/ Both Battlefront II and Overwatch are being investigated by Belgium in regards to whether or not their "Loot Box" systems constitute gambling under their laws.

  • @sharkydart said: There are some interesting cards in Hour of Devastation - not sure how viable many will be in Modern, etc. outside of sideboard - hopefully Standard is playable/diverse! Anybody play on XMage? I like Cockatrice too, but i…
  • @elyxandra said: I have a very small collection (4), but always end up staring at them in the store for way too long, dreaming about which ones I should buy next. If they made a Peridot Pop I'd have to buy her right away. Like this? ht…
  • @Linc said: If one more person tells me about what they forgot to sign up for (including Expo itself) I am gonna hit the roof. Just keep in mind how much you spent on the roof in the first place. That ought to keep you from hitting it. :P

  • Still on the Logitech MX518 and love it. The first one has lasted me 8+ years and I picked up a second so I could keep one in my laptop bag. Should probably pick up a third just in case since they don't make them anymore.
  • Apparently those jeans were available until 1991 when they were discontinued. But due to continued requests for them over the years, a company (Century Martial Arts) started making a version of them (called Kicking Jeans) again in 2015: https://w…

  • Apparently I was never added to the group to be able to join the games, can you add me? Thanks!
  • @QCH said: Man... where did you come from? I looked in my rearview mirror and nothing back there... Then there you were there and now you are past me. GREAT JOB! Hadn't folded since 2009 (had about 100,000 points when I stopped). Got a …

  • Yea, seems like a collector's piece to me. Got to admit the selection of games is pretty good, but I own pretty much everything from that era I'd be interested in via re-releases on other platforms.
  • Lost Cities is quick game I've played before that I enjoyed. Also has decent ratings on Boardgamegeek and is available on Board Game Arena for online play.
  • Strategy board games marked down as much as 40% for today only (4/25/16) on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/b/ref=lp_14185992011_gbps_tit_s-3_8062_1d97e9ee?rh=i:toys-and-games,n:14185992011,n:14185992011&ie=UTF8&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&node=…
