It seems Mr. Barnes ruffled the feathers of Terry Bailey Sr. and he has threatened to resign from the Boardgame News Site.

This can only be good for the hobby as we begin the de-ninnyfication!

I will donate $25 to Boardgame News when Terry Baily Sr. resigns

Great work Michael!

Who is that and what good has he done to The Hobby?

If he's not even a game publisher I'll stop reading this thread at once!!1

Please don't harass the guy, really. But in case you were curious . He really likes him some Caylus. He rated Dragon Dice a 4--come on--who does that? ASL gets a 5. Meh. His 10's? Caylus, as noted, and Flaschenteufel? What's that?

I don't know this guy from Adam, and have no interest in harassing him, but he did pop into a discussion thread to basically say, Micheal Barnes hurt the feeling of a few friends of mine two years ago, and I'm still mad!.

That sounds like a grade-A pin-head to me.

Gesundheit.



Hey, you know what's weird? There's some game out there that starts with "Kutsfhart." And I've heard it pronounced just like that on some podcasts. I guess it's the sequel to "Who Smelt it, Dealt It!"

That's actually a pretty cool game despite that horrible "cootchfart" business.

Ah, Terry Baily Sr... we hardly knew ye. You could have gone on to change the hobby via your astoundingly literate and insightful posts at BGN.com...alas, we will never know. And the loss of your $25 subscription might very well send BGN.com spiralling down into financial ruin, leaving Eric Martin to stand outside his foreclosed house with his pockets pulled out and a bindle stick prepared for his new life as a destitute vagabond...

Flaschenteufel is a really fun trick taking card game. You'd like it there is a major screwage factor.

Agreed- FLASCHENTEUFEL (aka BOTTLE IMP) is actually kind of great. It's kind of tough, but if you like cards it's a fun game.

One of my top 10 most hated games. I suffer from Post Tramatic Bridge Syndrome.

Seconded with that sentiment and raise you a "This guy wouldn't know a GOOD game if it bit him on the ass."

Righto, get this game. Someone gets royally hosed every single turn. Getting stuck with the bottle imp means burning in hell for eternity. Whee!
