There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

In the wonderful game, Bonaparte at Marengo, this is how to get nasty Frenchies out of a village.

We're going to give our new member a chance to host the next list, but in the meantime John Morgan, what would you like us to know about you?

And fellow members, what questions do you have for our latest crew member?

Let's talk about games! (Seems like a good idea.)

What future releases (or Kickstarted items) are you waiting anxiously to hit the shops so you can pounce on the minute they're available?

Let's talk about future gamers! (This is my selfish question of the list. whistle )

My 20-something-year old non-gamer niece asked me to recommend a game to play with her boyfriend. Her exact words were, "I'm curious if you have any two-player board or card games that you'd recommend. Nothing too intense and something that travels well."

I picked up Kingdomino but haven't had a chance to teach it to her yet. Anything else you think would fit these criteria particularly well?

And more broadly, what games have you had good experiences playing with very casual gamers that fall outside BGG's standard gateway recommendations of Catan, Carc, Ticket to Ride, party games, etc.?

What about "next step" games for those casual gamers who have responded enthusiastically to your initial introductions?

In the very near future (this Sunday) I'll be in Toronto to be interviewed for the Sickboy Podcast, where I'll be spending an hour talking about living with illness. (Whether my episode will eventually makes it to air is yet to be determined...)

Do you have any upcoming events or projects or productions that you're involved with that you're excited about?

Autumn is just 3 days away. What are your thoughts on the fall season? Is anything big happening for you this fall?

Apparently there's been a TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale" (a book I haven't read) that's been well received.

I haven't read much dystopian future fiction (other than Cormac McCarthy's "The Road", which I enjoyed a lot), and I can never seem to get into sci-fi (other than Douglas Adam's silly stuff). Are there any books with future settings that you highly recommend?

I recently listened to a couple of podcasts about quantum mechanics/physics that blew my tiny little brain (Joe Rogan and Neil deGrasse Tyson, Joe Rogan and Sean Carroll). It's got me wondering what further scientific discoveries during my lifetime will rock our concepts of life and the universe.

So my weird question of the week is this: What are your predictions for what life in 2117 will be like?
