One last tour here on the Death Star and I can retire. What was that noise?!

Congrats, David!

I am now considering sending the two green Kingmaker acorn tokens back to you to be signed by a GotW, but I am worried that you may not send the signed ones back to me.

'Gratz again!

Congrats!!!

Question: I'm looking for a good game on the War of the Roses. Any recommendations?


Thanks for the congrats, Judd. Maybe someday I'll actually make it to Witchita and we'll play some Kingmaker.

Let me think ... how about ... Kingmaker!

Wow, two of the all-time great thumbers as consecutive GW. Guru, congrats on on your recent stint. I don't know you well, but I appreicate all of the thumbs and enjoy your take on games and life in general on BGG. David, what can I say, you've helped introduce me into the world that is Kingmaker. Thanks for your generosity earlier this year. Here's a question: Are their any other games you recommend for Kingmaker fans, either with a similar theme or with similar gameplay?


Glad to bring you into the Kingmaker world, WriteGamer, your welcome!

I have been told that AH's Samauri is very similar, but purportedly better. I have picked up a copy but have yet to give it play.

Yeah Dave! A deserving geek to be sure!

Here's some questions:

1. What's your favorite non-commercially-available meat?

2. What's your favorite game that's not at all like Kingmaker?

3. What's the best game you ever thrifted? (edit, looks like the question was already asked. blush )

4. What's the biggest disappointment you ever had thrifting after getting it home?

5. Are you ever going to make it up to ROBA so we can game together before next Wintercon or do I need to come down there?(edit: I've never played a game of Kingmaker but totally want to learn.. if that affects your answer at all )

Cheers man! Again, well deserved.


1. What's your favorite non-commercially-available meat? Pheasant, and you missed some great pheasant soup when you didn't make my church's wild game dinner!

2. What's your favorite game that's not at all like Kingmaker? All Star Baseball.

3. What's the best game you ever thrifted? (edit, looks like the question was already asked. blush )

4. What's the biggest disappointment you ever had thrifting after getting it home? I picked up a copy of Ad Astra which I figured I would at least be able to trade for a good game if I didn't find it to be a keeper. Didn't use the hair dryer trick and ripped it good removing the tape.shake I never did try it but still got a good trade with a fellow thrifter. All's well that ends well, but I was quite disappointed at the time.

5. Are you ever going to make it up to ROBA so we can game together before next Wintercon or do I need to come down there?(edit: I've never played a game of Kingmaker but totally want to learn.. if that affects your answer at all ) Well, I'll probably make it to ROBA some time but you can quicken the pace by coming down here! Kingmaker is a definite choice to make the table, though!

You've probably told this story before, but let's hear it again about those '73 Oakland Athletics-especially since you seem to be from SoCal and now Michigan.


Pay closer attention to that avatar (just kidding) ... that's the '72,
'73, AND '74 Oakland A's! Back to back to back World Championships!

For some reason (at the time I didn't even like baseball) I started collecting baseball cards around '71 and in the fall of '72 my uncle suggested I come watch the world series ... and there is my team! What's even more shameful to admit is I picked them because I liked the uniforms and wasn't even aware that Oakland was in California! shake

tobacco What are the qualities of a good player ? Personable, slow to anger!

indigo What is your favorite ABSTRACT GAME ? Hey,That's My Fish but I don't play it well.

sugar Can you describe yourself as a gammer ? Little bit of AP.

corn Do you have any unfulfilled dream ? Not enough space to list them all but ... winning the lottery, owning a major league baseball team, winning Big Brother, winning Survivor, living in Hawaii, ... etc.
