Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
I'll be willing to play, but only if we exercise our option to change the city to Dallas instead of Tokyo.

On another note, that game would fit well into a theme night that includes Monsters Menace/Ravage America.

Leonardo Da Vinci - FAQ update
There was a grave ommision in the English rules that ignored the highly important Lord of the City. He is supposed to travel around the areas (A - H) so that every player knows which one is currently being resolved.

- What a waste of cardboard. I think he will just stay in the box!

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
Yes. We meet every Monday. People start arriving at Heroic Adventures on IL 157 at 6:00 pm. Feel freeto come join us.

On another note, the guy working the store (I forget his name) on Monday nights wants us to teach him Caylus next week. I know Mike will bring his copy and welcome a beating, but Adam, if you could bring yours, too, then I can teach it to anyone else new to the game at the same time. It would be great to have 2 games of Caylus going at once.

We are always happy to see new blood. The group seems to be getting bigger every week so there will be no shortage of games and opponents.

It looks like Will is dead set on at least one game of Caylus (which he needs to be beaten at) and I think Jason may have a stroke if I forget to bring Hermagor again next Monday.

You will find alot of games (light and heavy) being brought each week. Heroic Adventures also has a bunch of store copies that they are kind enough to let us play with. If you have a favorite - bring it with you since we are suckers and will play anything at least once.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
As someone new to the group I really enjoy going. I suggest stopping by. I have learned a new game every week I've been there which has been really cool. We usually stop around midnight.

I also was going to suggest we play Caylus next week I've wanted another crack at that game since my first game 6 weeks ago. I might be late, I might not, depending how late my interview goes on Monday.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
Hahaha, my old college stomping grounds. Good to hear that the board gaming community is growing there. I ocassionally pass through your region to see how things are going with my old college friends. I'll look you folks up for your game night if I have the chance.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
No, I did not win Caylus. Lost by 3 points. I will be the first to say that both Mike and Adam have caught up with me on the game. But in fairness to Mike, who shouldn't be alone in making this complaint, Adam went first and I went last. And we all know that is a valid excuse for losing by a tiny margin.

And in fairness to Adam, I should mention that the last time the two of us played, he and I tied. Like I said, he has caught up to me.

By the way, Mike, you missed listing the game of Zooloretto we played last night.

Admitted, going last does present a challenge. I have also noted that Adam has been winning way to much lately. I think he has been cheating on us and playing with another group in his free time.

I was under the impression that we were in an open relationship.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
I think we played Dragon's Gold.

Jason played St. Petersburg.

And that would be the low "roll." Your role, as always, was the smoke and mirrors player.

Also, the date was 11/17, not 11/7.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
I am bringing Tigris & Euphrates on Dec 15. Wes is the expert and I believe he has graciously offered to skip his first 5 turns in order to give us a chance.

Wes told me he will not be able to make it again. So you'll have to wait or read up on it.
