Game Day Highlights - Spurs, Mare Nostrum, Glory to Rome 21 May 2017 09:56 #248820

I hosted our game group's Saturday game day for the first time since the fire. Francie Pants finally kicked me in the tush and made it happen. This kick also forced us to deal with finally getting the big-ass table up to the game room. Fortunately Joey Joe Joe the drummer stopped by Wednesday as Engineer Al and I were puzzling over how to get this table up two flights of switch-back stairs, and declared that that it would be a piece of cake compared to hauling around 90 inch TVs, which is something he does on the regular as an AV guy. With his direction, he and Al were able to man handle it into the game room in a matter of minutes. So as a bonus to playing games on Saturday, we are now seriously on our way to finally converting my home office from a store room back to an office.

From this point on, two shots of bourbon at 11am on a Saturday will be known as a "Jeff Luce Breakfast."

So what is the proper etiquette for mocking cube pushers?

Mostly, I just roll close my eyes and think of England.

It's not exactly clear which version of Mare Nostrum you have... is it the older one? I really enjoy the older one with the expansion and the modified rules, but don't think I need the newer one. Thoughts?

I have not played the older one so I can't directly comment, but judging from some other's comments in past plays of mine with the new version - they really appreciated some of the changes, particularly the trade portion where it restricts your choices to a pool of tokens. This means you can't choose the same number over and over.

One of my great F:AT goals is to someday play a game with this group, if they'd have me. You all sound like you're playing games for the right reasons, which is altogether too rare these days.

Unfortunately the possibility is almost totally academic, since I can't seem to stay in a single place for longer than a year or so.
