Really, I only have one item to post so I'm hoping other people will share their stories. I wanted to mention my dream but it didn't seem to fit in any other forum. I've dreamt about board game bits before but this one was really weird.

So about a month ago I realized I was pregnant but because of what I thought was a miscarriage last June, I really had no idea how far along I might be. I have a 3 yr old son and when I was pregnant with him, I enjoyed a very mild, pleasant first trimester (no morning sickness). This one is following the same pattern so it never feels real until I hear a heartbeat or see the ultrasound image of my baby. Well, we were thrilled to finally get an ultrasound this last Monday and it looks like we are 13 weeks along. Yay! Everything looks good so far (keeping fingers crossed for the duration). But last night I had a dream that I was having the ultrasound done and I could see my baby (nice warm fuzzy feelings). When I looked closer I could see that my baby's face was the spitting image of Cthulhu!! AHhhhh!!! zombieDisturbing to say the least! I'm not a fan and board games are the only hobby that has ever brought Cthulhu into my awareness so, I blame BGG and my FLGS. If it were not for my exposure to Cthulhu here and in passing at the game store, I wouldn't be dreaming of birthing Cthulhu!

What does it mean? I guess all kids drive parents insane to some degree.

On the bright side, we're adding a new potential gamer to the family, Cthulhu-face or not.

Hi,

Just got the game cheap (10) and bought cold war and one of the expansion each for 9, but always wanted it.

My son and I have been playing tons of games.

So of course all I can think about is moons and chaining them together.

So there I am in my dream playing against my dog Rileily. You think I could win, but no I was losing. All she did was play out one card at a time and kicked my butt. I couldn't chain anything. Blast that dog.

Jim..

This has been an ongoing dream of mine for many years. I'm locked away and no one can find me.

Maybe it's true

whenever i learn a particularly complex or intriguing game, i will dream portions of the gameplay the next night or two. with agricola, for example, i had a few nights of dreams in which i continually sowed/baked bread and harvested (to be clear, they were not dreams of actual farming, but of stacking yellow and orange disks on brown cardboard).
a friend of mine had what he termed a 'nightmare of sorts' in which the harvest was fast approaching.

I have recently acquired this game, have read the rules, the online summaries, the strategy guides, etc., and finally got to try out the (old) computer version to make sure I had a good idea of how all of the rules really work together.

For the past two nights I have had dreams of the basic mechanics (tile laying and stock market operations), but also of things like Vanderbilt buying my railroad out from under me (similar things have happened in the game, so I can see why it has been on my mind), and then I end up scrambling to make some sense of my ruined career. One time I think I ended up as a hobo, but the dreams always get frantic and vague at that point so it's hard to be specific about it.

Ugh.

I had a dream where I really wanted to play the base game of Innovation, but all the expansion cards and cards from other games were mixed in. No matter how long I tried to sort them, I just couldn't get it all organized. It was a nightmare!

I had a dream where I invented a five sided die, it was a cylinder where each end was a pentagon. I seemed really innovative at the time (this was the '80s). I think I later saw things like that, but after waking from my dream I was pretty impressed with myself.
