Congratulations Todd!

We love AEG games and the biggest hit for Christmas this year was Ninja: Legend of the Scorpion Clan. Our boys keep it out on the table - so it's easy to get another game started.

Just a few questions from the family:

1. When you go to the zoo - what's your favorite animal to watch?

2. What's your favorite:
- Fruit
- Vegetable
- Breakfast cereal
- Ice Cream Flavor
- Kool-Aid Flavor

3. Most cherished souvenir (from anywhere)?

Hey Todd,

I know you're into music from the Nightfall thread... What's your favourite cover of a song that doesn't exist?

(Mine is a cover of Bruce Springsteen's The River by Gaelic Storm)

Thanks for repeatedly plugging Alien Frontiers. It is, in fact, an awesome game. It has been getting a lot of attention, yet I feel it should get more

By the way, I know 7th Sea has long been abandoned, but how about a little love for my favorite AEG product?

Hrm... we took the boys on a cruise, and they had a meet up for the little kids who would be at the kid's camp on the ship, and they had a dance contest. My 3 year old won and he loves that cruise ship shaped trophy still, so that one is my most cherished right now too!

Cover of a song that doesn't exist? I'm sorry I can't parse this properly...

I think he means what artist would you like to see cover a song that they haven't covered yet but should.

It's a good game! And it doesn't directly compete with anything we have.. so...

You know, we've kicked around the idea of a 2nd Edition of the RPG, but again the main culprit is time.

You asked for more questions - can't let you get bored!

1 If you could combine the theme and mechanics from any two different board games, which would they be?

2 Do your kids love boardgames as much as you do?

3 Do you have any suggestions for raising little boardgame geeks?

4 What is your favorite thing to drink while playing boardgames?

5 What is the longest game you've ever played?

I'd combine Dominant Species with Twilight Struggle so we could beat the commies with dinosaurs.

2 Do your kids love boardgames as much as you do?


Yeah they do. We usually play something with them several times a week. The usual preschool fare right now, but I'm sure they'll be into more as they grow up.

Quote:
3 Do you have any suggestions for raising little boardgame geeks?


Well, first off I'd say don't try to make them into little board game geeks. I don't believe in trying to force a hobby onto them, not that I think most people do (though I have seen some...). If they see you enjoying it, they'll probably have interest anyway.

I have distinct feeling that my oldest boy will definitely turn out to be more like my father, much more sports, social, and hard-work oriented than I was in my youth. And even if he didn't want a thing to do with boardgames, that would still be great.

Though I admit I find myself turning into my dad slowly as I age. I guess it's inevitable.

Quote:
4 What is your favorite thing to drink while playing boardgames?


Favorite was Coke, but I can't do that anymore. Strict water now.

Quote:
5 What is the longest game you've ever played?


For some reason in college i chose to subject myself to an evening of Diplomacy. It didn't end until the next day. That was the longest single session. our Star Wars RPG ran for about 4 years.

Sorry, I was typing late at night and my brain had left the building. I did indeed mean 'What band would you like to hear cover a song that they have not covered and what would the song be?'

Congratulations, Todd!

1. Is it currently your turn in a game of Ascension?

2. Which digital conversion of a boardgame are you most looking forward to this year?

3. What have you done with Guybrush?

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Nope I don't have any running right now. Played a few games with Michael Barnes from over at F:AT the other day.

Well Nightfall of course! It's looking amazing by the way, I can't wait to show the community here some of the screens and animations.

And of course the other project we'll be gearing up...

I've put him out to pasture! Which is appropriate, as he fights like a cow. *parry* *parry*

I shouldn't let the weekend end without putting at least one more image from my new Gen Con project up here... there are plenty more, but these will have to be it for now. And yes, this fella hangs out with the pirates, aliens, dinosaurs, and... others.
