Congrats Nadia - enjoy your week. 3 questions from me:

d10-1 Who is your favourite Tolkien character (from any of his books)? - in LOTR - Samwise Gamgee, Eowyn, Elrond and hobbits in general; in Silm - Finrod Felagund; I do like Bilbo too.

d10-2 If you were not a linguist, what career path would you want to take? - archeology sounds cool, though I do realize it's not like Indie adventure every day or paleontology! I like fossils

d10-3 If you had the opportunity to visit one place/period in Earth's history for a day out which would you choose? - hmmm, some day when Tolkien was alive and working on his stuff, to meet the great man.


Thanks!

Again - well done Thriend. Double whammy.


Here is my qs.

baconIn BSG the game, do you make a better cylon or cylon detector? - actually neither I'm not good at bluffing, so when a Cylon I just try not to do smth foolish until the right moment to reveal, and my detecting skills depend more on the Cylons themselves

baconBest Doctor? - Tennant, though I reeeeaally like Eccleston and Baker too.

baconAre you a Phoebe, Rachel or Monica? - :D Monica, but without her obsessive love for order.

baconLegolas or Gimli? - Gimli!



Thanks!

G'day Nadia,

I try to remember to ask each Geek of the Week these gaming related questions, so to start with here's the ever so slightly modified GeekSpeak Hook questions for you:
Favourite game(s) for d10-1 player (optional, many non-wargamers wouldn't have an answer for this) - the only game I played solo so far is Onirim
Favourite game(s) for d10-2 players - Dragonheart, Summoner Wars: Phoenix Elves vs Tundra Orcs
Favourite game(s) for d10-3 players - Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries
Favourite game(s) for d10-4 players - Arkham Horror, Thurn and Taxis, The Hobbit
Favourite game(s) for d10-5 players - Battlestar Galactica
Favourite game(s) for d10-6 players - Archaeology: The Card Game, Castle Panic, Ca$h 'n Gun$, The Name of the Rose
Favourite game(s) for d10-7 or more players (and you may choose a Party Game here although I wouldn't meeple ) - Saboteur

Also Word Association Football , I will list a word and you list a game or games that you associate with it. If you like you can expand and tell us if you like it/them or hate it/them and possibly why.

Space ships - Battlestar Galactica and Twilight Imperium (Third Edition)
Witches - Witch of Salem
Trains - Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries
Transport (may include trains) - Thurn and Taxis
Workers (paid or otherwise) - Puerto Rico
Trading - Yspahan
Building - Citadels
Pink - My Little Pony Hide & Seek
Theme - Middle-Earth Quest, Yggdrasil
Ships - Age of Discovery
Money - Ca$h 'n Gun$
Purple - Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries
Government - Diplomacy
Vampires - Fury of Dracula
Infrastructure - no idea
Dice - D&D
Dinosaurs - Evo
Gemstones - Mona Lisa Mysteries
Dragons - Dragonheart, Drako
Beer - Skåål
Wands - anything with wizards, like Wizard Dice

Is there any particular game that you have played recently, new or old, that you would like to recommend to readers of this thread? And optionally, why? - I'd say Forbidden Island - it gives the feeling of being Indie and Trollhalla - it has easy mechanic for any troll to handle and is much fun in a good company.

Last but not least, what are the five games that you have played most recently? -
Trollhalla
Thurn and Taxis
Yggdrasil
Dragonheart
Fortune and Glory: The Cliffhanger Game


Thanks!

Congrats!

d10-1 Favorite Battlestar Character? - in the show: Sam Anders and Saul Tigh, I also used to like Tyrol, but then he got all the bugs in his head oh, Helo in some episodes. In the game I mostly play Tyrol or Baltar
d10-2 Favorite Firefly Character? - I'd better say the only character there I dislike is Jayne, though after a number of re-watches he's okay too But if I were to play one, say, in an RPG, it would be Zoe (I'd also choose Kaylee, but I won't be able to come up with so much technobabble )
d10-3 If you had to chose between the two shows? (let's hope it never comes to that) - OH NOES! Firefly then.
d10-4 Favorite Ninja Turtle? - oh, they're all so cool! In order of preference: 1. Donatello 2. Michelangelo 3. Leonardo 4. Raphael
d10-5 How many times have you watched the 1st TMNT movie? + d10-6 How badly do you wish that they had never made a 3rd TMNT movie? - I like the cartoon series much better, so my movie views weren't frequent at all.


Thanks!

With six players? I must admit to have never having tried it past four. I imagine it would be different.

Time for some silly questions... meeple

What color are your socks?
If you were a worm, how long would you be?
You can flip a switch that will wipe any band or musical artist off the earth. Who would it be?
Have you ever had an imaginary friend?
Are you a "dogperson" or a "catperson"?
What were you doing at midnight last night?
Favourite age you've been so far? Why?
If you had to choose between a millions bucks and being able to fly, which would you choose?
Did you ever get lost?
Did you ever wear braces?
If anyone from BGG could be your slave for a day, who would it be and what would they have to do?

It's just that too many folk over here like the game, we even once played it with 7 players.

Thanks, Tom!

If you refer to my bio, that's the Gothic language I mention (you know, the dead one).

It's more and more fun

Thanks to my elven friend, we did it! My favourite part was at the gypsies and my attempt to seduce Sasha (well, it failed). Pity we didn't explore much in the Giant city, we decided to save our low HP/SP

d10-3 Are you interested in the upcoming Hobbit movie and why/why not? - oh yes! I do want to see what canon PJ screwed this time
d10-4 Gimli vs. Legolis who wins in a fight? - Gimli, but if they are in melee combat (hope they never come to that).


Thanks!

You can flip a switch that will wipe any band or musical artist off the earth. Who would it be? - oh, we have a whole ton of local "musicians" I'd do that to On a broader scale, it may well be LMFAO, or I may do a favour for the majority and wipe off Justin Bieber (thought I never ever heard him)
Have you ever had an imaginary friend? - not that I remember of, but I did have a bunch of imaginary cool kickass folk I was the boss of
Are you a "dogperson" or a "catperson"? - catperson, I'm very much afraid of dogs, though I do have one
What were you doing at midnight last night? - BGGing
Favourite age you've been so far? Why? - 22, fun year it was, lots of new stuff happened
If you had to choose between a millions bucks and being able to fly, which would you choose? - flying
Did you ever get lost? - yep, once, in my own city blush
Did you ever wear braces? - nope, so my lower front teeth still look funny
If anyone from BGG could be your slave for a day, who would it be and what would they have to do? - mwahaha! *all sorts of kinky thoughts rush through hobbit's mind*


Thanks! Good luck with the baby!
