Hilko needs some subs this week, so if a few of us could step up with a question each, that would be great. Let's hold the "What You Played" lists until Wednesday, so that those who want have time to get a question in.

At the risk of veering a bit personal, for my question, I'll ask: have you ever had to be hospitalized? How did that go?

As I'm reading the Sturlunga saga I thought I might ask if there is any historical period and/or event that you are fascinated with? If so, how come you got interested in that period / event? Any boardgames related to it that you have played or would like to play?

When I was a teen my bedroom was in an unfinished basement.

One night I had a dream that I was being attacked by the wolf man, so I punched that sucker right in the nose...only to wake up in pain because I had actually punched the raw cement wall. That punch tore a chunk of skin off my knuckles that has left a weird scar, almost in the shape of a dog's nose.

That's a true story.

Have you ever had any really odd/memorable dreams?

This question is a supplement to Scott's question above. I'm currently travelling now and actually don't feel too well due to a slight cold and cough. What was the worst sickness that has happened to you while travelling?

Let's open up the What We Played Last Week before Last Week is long forgotten!

So obviously the Netrunner thing has taken over the home. Will I burn out on it? Sure I guess, eventually. Still haven't opened a single expansion pack yet, though Donte and I are deckbuilding. Antony is new to the game still (around 40 plays) and liking it, and so we are still doing just the starter deck, shuffle in the neutrals and play thing with him. Also getting some games in with other friends who are just learning it. Game-of-the-Week on 30 plays (this is an hour-long game!)? Yeah...



 10   Android: Netrunner x30: Yep. Thirty
 8   Lost Cities x2
 10   Race for the Galaxy x2
 7   Splendor x2
 N/A   Unpublished Prototype x2 New to us. This is a new design by me. I liked it in theory. But once on the table, while I found that it worked, it was...not great fun. A fail cry
 7   Bruges
 7   Chicken Cha Cha Cha
 7   Dixit
 5   Gulo Gulo
 6   The Magic Labyrinth
 9   Ticket to Ride: Preston (age 6) has learned and is enjoying Ticket. Won his first game this week, a two-player against his oldest sis. Awesome cool

We had visitors last week in the shape of a couple of nephews who don't usually play games (other than the electronic variety). However they were persuaded to play this old - indeed, ancient - game and thoroughly enjoyed it, requesting it several times. I think I can see what their next birthday present might be....

Pit x 3
Pocket Battles x 1
Race for the Galaxy x 4
Kingdom Builder x 2
7 Wonders x 1
All Creatures Great and Small Agricola x 1
Thurn und Taxis x 1
Love Letter x 1
Lost Cities x 1
Hols der Geier x 1

Sorry for the delay here. I spent part of this week completely failing to contribute a question and part of it not getting around to posting my plays. Actually I spent the whole week doing both, but at least here is my list of plays for the week ending on Monday...

Having now acquired a suitable table, my new games room is now officially in use, and we have now played a few games in it.

Played with Miss B...
 7   Tales & Games: The Hare & the Tortoise - our first time with only 2 players, and while not as fun as with more, it was still enjoyable.
 6   Cathedral x4 - this could have been this week's headline game, as it was dug out of the back of a cupboard and really caught Miss B's imagination/
 6   Monster Café x2 - I look on this as an inferior version of Coloretto, but the monster theme is a lot of fun.
 7   Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! x2 - I still like this, despite its flaws, though we don't play it often.
 6   Runebound (Second Edition) - game of the week as it is always such an event to play this; thanks to now having a room where we can leave a game set up, we were able to start the game on Saturday and finish it on Sunday.

With adults only...
 8   Sushi Go! x2 - went down well as a lunchtime game at work.
 7   Qwirkle - my wife and I have finally got this up to 10 plays!

Solo...
 N/A   Samurai Spirit - still solo, still losing; I'll have to try with someone else to see if they can help me get a win.

Late posting, as we've just got back from a week in Tenerife - lots of sun, swimming - and as it happens, card games. That'll be on next week's post though - this week's is from the week before, when it was school holidays, so I played a few games with the children (or rather the boys, while my daughter had a playdate with a friend), as well as our usual Friday night gaming session - where I was on the table that rattled out a whole sequence of hour long games in less than an hour each, plsying 12 games in the 5 hour session, whereas the other table just played Goa and something else similarly weighty and long.

Gaming with other adults:

1 x Acquire, Around the World in 80 days, Carcassonne, Pompeii, Factory Fun, Incan Gold, Monopoly Deal, Pandemic, Splendor, Suburbia, Thebes, Timeline

Gaming with my children:

3 x Where in the Wild?
1 x Hey, That's my Fish (requested by my older son, despite the fact he had only played it once before, and that nearly a year ago!!)
1 x Gulo Gulo
1 x Lego Create It
