One of my favorite quotes on BGG
I get it when people complain about set up and tear down time with games that have hundreds of pieces, however, when I see people dismiss games such as Ticket to Ride: Märklin for being "fiddly" because of the passenger tokens,
I can't help but conclude that "fiddly" is now synonymous with
"I'm unbelievably lazy, pass me a twinkie".
A Favorite quote FTL
You, and every other person who has ever lived, knows Blitzkrieg Bop. Yes, that song perpetuated backwards through time. The earliest known cave paintings roughly translate to "hey, ho, let's go."
