Number 333 and a double winner - you really WIN on so many levels once in a lifetime! How very cool!thumbsup

So congratulations, Nadia!

mbWho's your favourite Doctor? (pun intended) - Who of course! Incarnations 5, 9 and 10 (Baker, Eccleston, Tennant)
mbChoose 3 games from your collection and explain why everyone should have or at least have tried them once. - hmmm, 1. The Hobbit - it has everything - adventure, treasure, cards, dice - and dwarves! 2. Arkham Horror - it is so very complex with a lot of options - wanna fight - go and fight, wanna explore eldritch stuff - here you go, need help from the companions - welcome etc etc. 3. Forbidden Island - it gives you the feeling of being Indie
mbWhat's your kind of music? Do you visit concerts? - rock and metal and everything in between (folk metal, industrial etc), though I don't like when the vocals involve growling I used to visit rock sessions, now too lazy
mbWhich books are you currently reading? - Currently I'm reading academic stuff for thesis most (good I had to re-read Professor's stuff for it too), but Pratchett's "Unseen Academicals" are still waiting to be finished
mbDo you have any favourite historical period you really like, or one you feel you'd like to know more about because it soudns interesting? - I'm a sucker for Nordic theme, but not in historical aspect, but in mythological. I also like the period of Pre-Norman-Conquest England.


Thanks for your questions and for the turtles!

Congrats, Nad!! Glad my favorite hopping turtle got the honour this week!

What's your:
1. preference - Pie or cake?
2. favorite flavour of ice cream?
3. best prank you've pulled on someone?
4. oddest quirk that you do when no one is watching (like belting out broadway songs when you think no one is listening)?
5. your gateway game that led to the enlightenment that is boardgaming?

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet.

I haven't yet, I have an invite on yucata from Neil though. As soon as I'm done with the thesis and have free time again, I guess I'll give it a try.

What's your:
1. preference - Pie or cake? - to eat - both, to bake - pie
2. favorite flavour of ice cream? - coconut and chocolate
3. best prank you've pulled on someone? - hmmm ... dunno, I'll post when something comes to mind.
4. oddest quirk that you do when no one is watching (like belting out broadway songs when you think no one is listening)? - oh yes, I love singing loudly and as I'm a horrible singer I do it when alone, and sometimes in different voices. I also sometimes like to quote movies as I watch them, so that my lines coincide with what is spoken
5. your gateway game that led to the enlightenment that is boardgaming? - Arkham Horror


Thanks you!

Congratulations!!

First off, thank you for providing such a nice atmosphere in the FTL. I know a lot of people have really appreciated your energy and openness. It is what makes that thread so great, and you exemplify it very well!

Now some questions for you:

d10-1 What are your favorite Board games, Video games and RPG? - Christ asked me this too, but I think I'll give a different answer just to include more of my favourite board games. So board games: Middle-Earth Quest, Lord of the Rings Trivia Game, Yggdrasil, Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries, Thurn and Taxis; RPG - currently D&D 4e, yes, blasphemous 4e However, I'm in The One Ring PbF now, so when I get familiar with the system it has all the chances to become number 1 for such a ME geek as I am video game - Baldur, Fable, Diablo, Enclave...oh, and Heroes of course!



d10-2 What is your favorite contribution that you have made to the site? - on the fun side - this geeklist probably Hobbit birthday: virtual mathom giveaway! :) on the serious side - I did cards translation for MEQ and Summoner Wars (eng->rus), and translated huuuuuge rulebook and tutorial for Age of Sovereigns (rus->eng).

d10-3 What is your favorite part of the site? - FTL And as I like to chat a lot, I frequent the Tavern and Arcadia. Oh, and the "funny pictures" threads (LOTR, Doctor, Star Wars, Star Trek).

d10-4 Can you share a strange or funny gaming experience with us? - oh, we have so many funny things to quote, the problem is the fun is lost in translation. However, here are two episodes that easily came to mind:

Our local meme in Battlestar Galactica: While explaining the rules of loyalties I usually say "Once a Cylon - always a Cylon". Then once we started a 5-player game, but the player who was the Admiral was a bit drunk and somewhere in the 1/3 of the play felt he could take it no longer and went to sleep. Since the 4-player variant has a sympathizer, we had to change all the loyalties and our Cylon turned human for the second draw. Thus we got the phrase "Once a Cylon - always a Cylon, unless the admiral gets drunk".

Guessing the monk in The Name of the Rose: There were 6 people (2 played for 1 monk), the monk cards were just delivered. Then one of the guys (Artie) wanted to go to the kitchen to make some tea and promptly asked us not to peep into his card. To which his sister said smth like "As if I need to, I know you're Blue Monk!" As the guess was completely ramdom, we all laughed, but Artie decided to check just in case. And whoa - his monk was really blue! After a joke about mind reading we re-delivered the monks, and I just couldn't help going on with it - you're white! - and white he was! The third re-delivery - and my husband guesses Artie is orange! After a bit of cursing on his side we decided not to spoil the game any more and stop guessing, so we got our monks once again and started playing. "He's grey", I thought from the very start, but kept silent, and I actually believed the 4th time would be impossible to guess. And guess which monk he turned out?

Have a great week!



Thanks for your questions!


Great answers. I love the BSG story. Classic! laugh

Enjoy your week! I'll stop in later to see how things are going.

CONGRATULATIONS Nadia!

Good job getting the Eye, I think you were right in front of me.

A Q or 2 for you:

How busy are linguists these days?
Are you a translator or a scholar (or both maybe)?
If Translator:
Written or voice? Which do you like best?
If Scholar:
What are you studying? Because you want to, or because you are paid to?
And finally:
Why do you think Dwarves are so popular?
Why do you like them?

Enjoy your week in the spotlight! Here's to you...
