Group order from Boards&Bits and Adam Spielt?


I'm looking to place a Boards&Bits order some time within the week, and
if there's enough interest an Adam Spielt order in about a fortnight.
Delivery would be at Yahoo! (Sunnyvale), SVB/Matchplay (Mountain View),
PayPal (San Jose), BAP (Foster City), or at my house (just outside Los
Gatos).

Interested in joining in to share S&H costs?

Re: Session Report 01/02/06

For several months now, in spite of my repeated invitations, 
our "Quote-of-the-Week" spin doctor Eugene has declined to play 
any "political" games with me.

But you won't find that in the quote-of-the-week.

Cheers,
Mike

Why Mike, I had no idea you felt that way.  But as Eddie has
demonstrated, that would be like taking candy from ... er, I mean,
there are just so many other interesting games to play!

AIR the QotW from your Junta game last week was:

  "But I'm peaceful, I haven't killed or attacked anyone all game!"

  "Oh, so you're just trying to tell us that you're incompetent?"

Eugene, you are still dodging me.  But you can't dodge me forever, 
young man.

Re: Session Report 01/02/06

Laugh out loud!  That was Mischa's comment, and my response.  Junta 
is always great fun.  Eddie edged me by one dollar, in spite of all 
the ganging up on me.  Come ot think of it, he had just edged me by 
two points on a tie-breaker in PotR.

Gaming is fun.  Gives me a break from the life-and-death climbing 
expedition leader stuff.

Cheers,
Mike

Re: Session Report 01/02/06

So, are we going to see a Mike Chase and Eugene battle in A Game of
Thrones or Dip?

I would love to play in those games because you two would be so busy
stabbing each other that I might have a chance to win. ;)

We're about to start a PBEM Diplomacy game, the game that practically
defines the genre "political game".  Mike, I publicly _invite_ you to
come play with me and the rest of the guys in Diplomacy.  If you don't
accept, it will be clear who is dodging whom.  :)
