Inspired by the many who have enjoyed Feldtober, celebrating the beloved Stefan Feld, I would like to do something similar for Vlaada Chvátil

I started a thread about this last spring and many names/months were suggested and I have chosen Novlaada. I liked the name, and I liked the timing, as it follows Feldtober.

So, there are some long cold nights ahead, especially for those of us in the US, with the looming election. Pull out that Vlaada that has been sitting on your shelf cause you just haven't had the time. Take it down, open it up, revel in its complexity.

Don't put it back. Set it up. Marvel some more. Mage Knight Board Game I am looking at you. Also I haven't forgot you Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization. And you Dungeon Lords + expansion.

Play it. By yourself or with others. Join your fellow geeks as we burrow deep into what we love about our hobby - mind crushing decisions.

My friend, who owns a comic book store, said it best, "He takes a genre and then proceeds to make the absolute best game in that genre."

Some may disagree with that sweeping pronouncement but why not give Vlaada some love this month anyway?

I am getting the ball rolling early by running Galaxy Trucker + expansions and Dungeon Petz tomorrow at our monthly comic book game day.

Please share your celebrations here!

I think the name choice is a bit unfortunate. It can easily be read as "no Vlaada".

No Vlaada? No problem. Except Through the Ages: that one is brilliant.

OH NO! "No one" pointed that out! Well, then I guess the haters will also be happy!

I didn't read the other thread and was the first to post here. If others indeed had pointed that out, it baffles me that you still chose to go with that name.

Cause I haven't had time to think it through, and I wasn't sure I should change it JUST for that reason. If there is an overwhelming resistance to it, then yes, let's change it, I will go find my earlier thread and see what some of the other suggestions were.

I do also find that having the multiple way of reading it does in some ways add to the meme, even if it is NO Vlaada, it is satisfying for them, that's what I tried to articulate in my earlier post.

I did run a very long game of Dungeon Petz with three newbies today! So I am a bit braindead, and may not have done much better expressing myself.
