It is time to make up for all the mean, defensive, road-blocking, card-stealing moves you have made during your gaming this year.

This is your chance to vow something good to do with you gaming crew. Remember you can't tell them you are doing this or it doesn't count. Santa is watching!!!

(Vows only valid until 12/25/11, around noon.)

To the most outstanding vow, I will give 3 gg.

I will give more if I need the extra good acts for Santa.

If you need some Saint Nick Karma, feel free to award GG too!

I vow to play these games, as meant to be and not to take aim and flick or throw, any of the following items:

Plastic rings


Little foam balls,


Plastic ping pong balls,


Plastic pucks,


Foam footballs,


Plastic chips,


Plastic balls,


Pink flamigos


or Rubber ducks.


at my friends forehead.




And to rather play Aargh!Tect, when the urge strikes, where the rules state, that it's perfectly legal, to whack him upside the head, with one of these.

I vow not to totally annihilate (especially with nuclear weaponry) any opponent within the first 3 years/rounds, particularly if they are a newbie or my wife.

Oi! Hands off...

Yesterday I was a bad boy.

I had six cards in my hand - two to complete my existing route, and three to form my next route, which would also give me the Outside of Bayern bonus. So, my plan was to draw one card and play two.

After completing a route, you can only keep three cards, and the sixth card in my hand was worthless because it would have to be discarded. I realised that the card I drew was also worthless to me.

My wife, Becky, was next to play. She had a route starting in Kempten and was looking for blue cards to also gain the Outside of Bayern bonus - indeed if she claimed it before me then she was going to get a 2VP swing.

Zurich - a blue card - was on the card tableau.

I drew Zurich.

I closed my route by playing two cards.

I discarded two cards, keeping my hand down to the three that I still needed, and making sure that my wife saw that Zurich was on the top of the discard pile.

Santa, I vow never to do anything this nasty again. But when you come on December 25th, could you please let me out of the garden shed?

I vow not to be naughty and mess with the auctions of Power Plants I don't need.
i.e. --1. "Aw, go ahead and take it for that more-than-triple price. I never really wanted that nasty smelly plant anyway. Congrats on winning that, BTW."
--2. "Oh I'm sorry did you mean to buy that? I know it was your last hope to reach capacity, but I need my plants to have matching building types because I'm OCD, you see.")
