That last line had me cracking up, I can just see Barnes down at the schoolyard in a white van with "Yugioh Decks Optimized" spray painted on the side.

Can confirm that Dungeon Mayhem is good. Shockingly so. Its goals are humble but it succeeds at every one of them. I mean it's trash, but it's my kind of trash.

I'm this close to trying Duel Links and I'm mad about it. If it's all you're saying it is it may be exactly what I want from a digital card game.

I played a test version of Lincoln a few years ago in Essen and it felt stale to me then. While I liked the mechanisms, it lacked the promise of another outcome than an attritional victory. That may be realistic for the Civil War, but that doesn't make it a fun game

I really like Lincoln. I think it has to do with never being satisfied by A Few Acres/Mythotopia and really wanting a true version of those systems that worked.

This is a different beast but there are enough similarities. I have another guy in our group who's infatuated and we can't get enough of it.

Lunch Money is execrable? Don’t tell that to seventh grade ApprenticeJoJo. I ruled summer camp when I brought it that year. The counselors asked to borrow it after lights out, so they could keep playing.
