I keep hoping today will be the day that it shows up. Fortunately for my FLGS, they have had plenty of games on hand to cool my chit-lust while I wait for this game to arrive. The shippind delay for U.S. copies of Conflict of Heroes is singlehandedly paying for my FLGS manager's kids' braces.

There it was. I bought it, thinking maybe my kids would like it. I can't even make myself get through the rules and will probably leave it in the shrink and return it for store credit. I am a bonehead.

Our FLGS store clerk keeps recommending this with the alternate scoring variant. It plays in 15 minutes, and during my last visit, after CoH was not on the shelf, I bought this. Haven't played it yet but will soon. Really.

I rented this during the same visit as the Tsuro purchase. Loads of fun! We've played it three times. During the last game my eight-year-old cruelly blocked out Oslo and snuck in for the win. We were laughing our heads off. There is no way you can play this in less than an hour without performance enhancing drugs. The only thing that would make this game any better is if you could somehow include Technoviking.

So tonight I'm probably going to either buy RFTG or learn Netrunner.

Jamaica has been calling to me, but I'm waiting for more reviews to come in. It seems a tad light and may not have much replayability, unlike the popular Daytona 500.

And no, I'm not taking the proverbial.

I had this on preorder with a very reliable UK based etailer for a couple of months but they were let down by their distributor when the first stock arrived in the UK so none of their preorder customers were able to recieve a copy - however they said that due to the inconvenience caused the distributor would offer an additional £8.50 discount which they would pass on to those pre-order customers who kept their order in.

In the meanwhile I managed to order what appears to have been the last copy available in the UK from another supplier which has now arrived - and I'm still waiting for my original order to turn up - which I may trade or give as a present given the good price.

So what game did I purchase while waiting for Conflict of Heroes to arrive? well that would be Conflict of heroes.
