well, not for a camel. Through the Desert is not real popular in my house. Although my friend, Bad Dan R., has suggested that we use the white camels from TtD as caravans in Mare Nostrum.

Anyway, I was hanging at Francie's house, I do that a lot, and we were trying to decide what game to play. I hadn't brought much, except my list of owned games. I only live a couple of houses down and it is easier to just bring a list and then run home and get whatever we decide to play. I hand the list to one of the guys. He looks it over, and says that there is nothing there worth going to my house to get. NOTHING WORTH A FIVE MINUTE WALK! Boo Hoo! I own nothing but shite games. Actually, I'm not surprised. I don't own any of the new HOT games, which is all anyone seems to want to play.

Later, when I got home, I get a call from an old friend, Mr. Snow, who lives about an hour to an hour and a half drive away down south of me. He is bemoaning the fact that he hesitated on a $75 buy-it-now on ebay for Merchant of Venus. He wants to drive up some weekend soon with the GF to play with my copy. I pointed out that it would cost him at least $40 in gas just to get up here, but he's coming anyway. Yay! My game collection has been redeemed, and I get to spend a weekend playing games with my cool friends. If the GF likes MoV, the Snow Man  is going to start looking in earnest for his own copy.
