Wat! I saw him once when he visited Uppsala. Couldn't get near the restroom, though. Six degrees of Kofi Annan, eh?

In real life, is your mustache really that bushy? Tell us the story behind your Groucho avatar, if there is one.

Mrs. Dunga doesn't like beards or mustaches, so I am obliged to obey, or sleep in a cardboard box underneath the nearest bridge.

I've always been a fan of the Marx Brothers. Not much more to it than that. And even though Animal Crackers is not considered one of the best Marx Brothers movies, it remains my favorite.


Perhaps Mrs. Dunga would not mind if you simply painted your mustache on?

Okay.

Back in 1977 I found myself in Paris, France, attending a reading of poetry by Jorges Luis Borges.



I got to the venue early, and decided to have a pee before the reading started. While in the Gentlemen's Room, this old guy came in with someone guiding him through the door and up to the only other urinal in the place.

Peeing beside a blind man who is also doing the same thing may strike you as a risky endeavor. However, the consequences would be nothing as drastic as, say, a large meteorite hitting the planet.

On my way out, I held the door open for the fellow, and because I could see his eyesight wasn't too good, I announced that the door was open. The old fellow thanked me, asked if I was there for the reading, then walked off with his handler.

I saw him walk directly onto the stage, and it was at that point that I realized who he was.

Hey everyone, I've really enjoyed my time as Geek of the Week #292, which I will astutely point out is an even number.

The next Geek of the Week will be odd...

Is Hunga Dunga the Most Interesting Man in the World?
As he departs, we remember "The Most Interesting Man on BGG".

Congratulations from Geneva Switzerland, for being the Geek of the Week and being in good shape

(your doctor told me that your secret in order to stay in good shape you drink two or more liters of liquid a day (maybe he meant water, but I am not sure). Now this explains that after a few decades of this regime, statistically there is a near certainty that you meet known people in mens' rooms.)

A Groucho Marx fan that is a wargamer, and one whose posts seem to strike some sort of chord with me.

I lurk too much here anymore so I managed to miss it on the week.

Just let me say what everyone really thinks: "HungaDunga is a poopyhead".

Wha? C'mon... that is what you all think and are just to polite to say it:whistle:

:laugh:

I will go back under my rock now before they come after me with pichforks and torches.

It's the model for the Game of Thrones boardgames.

It's exciting.

It's for 7 players.

It deals with basic abstract fleets and armies.

It uses a geographical map.

It allows you to build new fleets and armies if you are smart enough or wily enough to capture new territory.

It teaches how to build alliances, how to use them, and how to discard them to adjust to new priorities.
