Is anyone over there playing Ora et Labora? I've been really enjoying it, but can't get in games often enough over here. I'd be tempted to drive way over there if you guys were wanting to play it.

I played Le Havre last night, for the first time in several months, and remembered the pain in the ass of the food situation. Ora et Labora is so much better in that way, yet there are still lots of buildings to build and lots of ways to use resources and people. And lots of paths to victory. I really enjoy it.


Yes, come out and we'll play it. If it helps, the Brothers Grim were not in attendance last week.

For the record, I think the food situation in Le Havre is a good thing. It keeps some tension in it that is not found in Ora.

The Brothers Grimm were attending again? How did that happen? I thought they were asked not to return.

I'm surprised at how many people lose track of when they can build settlements, though, and then get behind on the settlements. Not as much difficulty as food in Le Havre, but still necessary.

The Brothers Grimm are still showing up? I'd hoped they'd disappeared after the hiatus.

They weren't attending. Then they were. Then they were told it can be a task to play with them. They showed up the next week, but not last week.

Thanks Dave! I did get some bday games in this weekend including Oz Fluxx (we got a demo copy in at Heroic), San Juan, 7 Wonders, Arena: Roma II, and Burrows. Nothing heavy (except my friends Doug and Thoma got so competitive at Burrows that the both got brain-strain. Who knew?) but it was great to spend my Birthday gaming.

I got in an initial play of The Castles of Burgundy Saturday night. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The only downside was that the first game took over 3 hours for four players. I will bring it tonight and would like to get in another play. Yell if you are interested.

I should be there around 7 tonight. If Ora et Labora is brought by Marge or if Burgundy is not already under way, I'd appreciate the chance to play either one.

Hoping to make it, but if my sister is free, she may be making homemade chicken and dumplings at my house, in which case my expanding waistline wins.....

There is a post for DIECON!!! Swing by and give it a thumbs up. Even better post something really nice about Diecon, Atomic Squash, and the boardgaming that will be available.

Thanks.

my medications have been playing havoc on not only my ability to reason but stay awake, so games have been tough for me lately. Hopefully I'll be able to come out soon so I can lose some more games to you guys.

I would prefer you didn't yell at me, but the same holds true here. Call if you need anything at all.

What they said, but you can yell if it floats your boat.
