Snow Tails got played at my house last night, but it was boys night out, so I didn't play. I was hiding upstairs with the Spawn watching chick shows that would turn you all gay if I so much as posted their titles.

It wasn't DROP DEAD DIVA was it? My wife did the set design on that show.

I don't know, I've been watching a whole whack of shows with Helen ( the wife), that if some of my friends knew about I'd never hear the end of it. Then again I always have the words to "I Feel Pretty" running through my head...

Nice! My wife recently worked on a job with a food network star that was a total flake.

How on earth could that make anyone gay?


Ah...TITLES. TITLES. Now I get it.

I managed to miss both the first episode and the re-broadcast. One night I was playing Arkham Horror. I think I was shopping for riding boots the other night. I'm going to have to watch it on-line.

Congrats to the wife. Wasn't she designing sets for the Food network? Are they keeping her on board for Drop Dead Diva, or are all the core sets done and so is the gig?

I finally bought Armageddon Empires, and have now played two full games as the Empire of Man.


Um, this game sounds awesome and I'd love for someone around here to do a review since this appears to be the only game of it's kind...

I think Barnes reviewed it on Cracked LCD one time.

I did not like SNOW TAILS. It has got no rules for ramming. If you drive into another player you simply stop. How boring is that? I'd roll two dice:

First die
1-2: You stop.
3: You drift one space to the left of the other player.
4: You drift one space to the right of the other player.
5-6: You overtake the other player.

Second die
1-3: No effect.
4: You take one damage.
5: You and the other player each take one damage.
6: The other player takes one damage.

The free demo for Armageddon Empires is very good. You are getting a playable game, everything except for two of the four factions. However, there is a 30-turn limit on the demo game, so a majority of the demo games will end in a draw. When you buy the full game, you also get both expansions for no additional charge. The Cults of the Wastelands expansion makes the small independent factions more proactive and aggressive, so instead of just battling 2-4 major AI opponents, you are also potentially being harassed by a number of lesser opponents. The newer expansion, The Tip of the Spear, apparently increases the tactical utility of infantry units.

I liked AE a lot, the only thing I didn't care for was that sometimes the battles took forever to resolve, watching those dice roll and all that. I think he actually fixed that as a result of my comment though.

Don't have the expansions yet...maybe I'll get around to them once I beat the god damned AI in this PC CITIES AND KNIGHTS game. It's fucking devilish. I think I've played more games of SETTLERS with this program in the last week than I have in the past 5 years.

Played Call of Cthulhu LCG over lunch today, preparing for a in house event later this week. I lost, but didn't get my ass handed to me. A respectable 2 story cards to 3. Considering who I was playing (the designer) was pretty nice.

In general, I'm bad at most card games, because as a natural part of their design, they tend to get really mathy, effect after effect after x cancels this when the moon is full and your opponent is wearing a red shirt.

At the risk of sounding like a shill, I really like that this game is not about the other guy out purchasing you. When I realized in highschool, that some nerds were actually counterfitting Magic cards, I got out. This seems simpler. I chose the two groups that are the most straight forward, but when I get a bit better, I want to make a monster deck. (as it is, I have Syndicate and Agency)

I'm in gaming mode lately. Which is good. Bad for the 'get outside and exercise' plan....

Other thing I have been playing (beyond the ever present Eve) is Team Fortress 2. You can find me on Steam as 'Arkhamina' I'm getting to be a pretty good soldier! Once in a while if I stay very late up, I see Skellie - I think Saturday I was up to 3am killing peoples, and saw him show up.

Got 2 games of Cosmic in last night too :)
