It’s that time in middle age when I decide to buy an expensive guitar. My rock n roll lust for an Ernie Ball Mariposa is your gain. All prices with TWBG discount and shipping included.

Castles of Burgundy- 10th anniversary edition of the only good Feld. $35 shipped.

Century Golem edition collection- all 3 games, the original (Sacksonian trading), Eastern Mountains (a PU&D), and Endless Word (Worker placement). All 3 combine into one mega game. $85 shipped

Heroquest- 2021 AH edition. The heroes are fully painted as are some of the monsters. Some are partially painted (with Citadel paints). Just ran out of steam on doing it. Weirdly, this copy was missing a door but I’ve not bothered to get Hasbro to replace it. Played the whole campaign and never needed it. $85 shipped.

Theseus- super cool cult classic Michał Orcaz mancala-based design. Includes the Space Station expansion cards and the Bots faction. Box is a little worn- $45 shipped.

Summoner Wars 2nd edition- the classic Plaid Hat skirmisher. Includes the starter set, master set. Awesome game, but I’m afraid Godtear has shifted priorities in this genre for the time being. $60 shipped DarthJojo got the faction packs out of here, price reduced!

Port Royal Big Box- Alexander Pfister’s push your luck pirate game with all expansions. I have lots of push your luck games, so it can move on. $25 shipped

Disney Smash Up- exactly what it sounds like. $25 shipped

Tusk- weird GF9 euro about Cavemen. Theel hated it, I think it’s kind of OK but needs some revision.. $25 shipped

Dibs on Concordia and Undaunted. If no one else wants it and if you’re willing, I’d also like the Cloaks and Avians packs. Also also preemptive dibs on Hansa.

Thank you.

I’ll split out the Cloaks and Avians for $15. Summoner wars lot will also go down by $15!

Why a Mariposa of all the expensive guitars you can buy? Thats got zero resale value and if we know one thing about Barnes, this will be resold.

It’s a Sterling, so it’s not that expensive- $599. There’s no way I can afford the top line Music Man edition. If I were in that price range then I’d be going with the St Vincent/Annie Clark. I’ve been playing a few options and I just totally clicked with this one. I wanted something with a mid century style but that can go more metal than something like a Jazzmaster…I like the passive HBs better than actives because it’s a more ragged, punkier sound. I’m not a shredder so the superstrats and all that, meh. I did play a $1500 Kirk Hammett ESP I liked a lot though…had the poster art from Bella Lugosi’s White Zombie on it. I was looking at Schecters (Omen and Demon) but I just did NOT click with them at all, not my style or personality.

You've done your homework at least. When you said expensive, I thought you meant EXPENSIVE. You like what you like.

Two items didn’t make it on the list so adding these to the pile:

Babylonia- 2019 Knizia people were calling a T&E killer. I don’t agree, but it is an excellent mix of classic Knizia elements. $35 shipped

Equinox- Mr. B games reprint of Colossal Arena- I love this game but it’s, weirdly, too big for our gaming table. Jumbo cards- great art and all, just a bit much! $30 shipped.

We're kindred spirits, Michael. I say the same thing any time it's brought up. (Already have it, not buying.)

I will buy this though.

It’s such a good game but…I really just play it on BGA, it’s a perfect game for that format.

I think DarthJoJo might have scooped up BH too in his now massive box- let me check and if he passes it’s all yours.

Those are AWESOME amps. I have a Mustang GTX100. It's really brass tacks as to what you prefer. Cannot go wrong with one of those. You've got a good setup. Have fun. Happy to talk guitar stuff anytime.

Serious question about HQ: Setting aside the fact that the genres are different, is this sort of on a "fun"/"thinking" par with Talisman? Talisman went over very well with the spouse. She likes more complex games, too, but we kind of have been gravitating to "fun first" when it's just us.
