Boy, I hope the translation of the title of this post "Interrupted game playing!"
My FLGS is running a large Games Workshop tournament this weekend, so we will not be playing games at the store. As is the norm when that happens, I will not be nominating a game for me to take to try and get played.
This is fine because there are still a bunch of the previous games I would like to try and get played and we'll see if I can get any of them in this weekend during any of the game playing I do get to do.
Apparently the camels were spitting like mad because we didn't play Yspahan. By spitting camels, I mean that Rick (hi Rick!) came by with prototypes and hijacked our playing of completed and finished games.
Sarcasm aside, he did trot out an updated version of a card game we played a few months ago and it is now more of a polished game which just might be ready to think about publishing.
He also had us play a game which let me rant on about English professors and their insistence on torturing their students with James Joyce's writings. Is it just me, or should that tripe be relegated to advanced psychology classes and not literature? (Maybe there was some sarcasm there...) I didn't like that game. Part of it was the theme and part of it was I spent several turn fishing through a random deck trying to get the resource I needed to actually be able to complete something.
No one brought up the Solved Game or Fluxx Advance so it was my rant for the day and I felt good after getting to make it, so it was nice to see Rick again. Jeff, who was the only one listening to me, probably wanted to kill himself, or me.
After the prototypes there were six of us, so Yspahan was out then. I think I should have tried to get it played at the beginning of the day, which may well be the best strategy going forward.
