Justice for the 96!

03.01 we had our first child, a wonderful daughter. So even if I didn't stop playing/ buying games not many arrived first half a year.
Last week I took some time off work to be home with my daughter and suddenly games started to arrive:
1. Scythe
2. Terraforming Mars
3. Tiny Epic western*
* will probably arrive soon*
4. Conan (had forgotten about this )
5. Martians : a story of civilization
* by then I tried to explain that all of these games were ordered looong ago. Wife was not totally impressed. I am also pondering if I should extend my leave in hope that it might speed up some future kickstarters

Wait, how the heck did you get Martians already? Redimp's Thursday update stated they are still waiting for the shipment to arrive from the printer, and that's just for the copies they are bringing to Essen.

The stars indicated (or was meant to do that) that the last two will arrive shortly, sorry if I wasn't clear!

As the father of a 10 week old, I was expecting a pic of Twilight Struggle covered in puke.

When my son was 3 he decided to take a bath with a nice set of Adv Civ, Titan, and Outpost. Oh that was an expensive day. He's 15 now and we've replaced them all but it sure was a learning lesson. I hope your games fare better then ours did.

You've replaced them all? I hope he's doing OK, now. Do you keep in touch?

Hehe yeah we've replaced them all (this was before the outpost reprint), couldn't be too upset with as we left the games where he could get to them. Now its not a problem, not only does he not destroy games but he plays them and takes care of them properly now.

I expected she kicked his ass in Agricola or something, since he didn't mention the daughter's age in the title

Well she almost ate Fidel Castro in my last game of Twilight Struggle (not against her, mind you) laugh

So I decided to read your post and I don't quite get the point of it.
Are you saying that you're disappointed you have two months "off" but no time to play these games?

I'm sure you've already warned her that the other games are coming, which will defuse the issue a little.

The next thing to do is to make sure that some packages arrive containing gifts for her, and some more arrive that contain gifts for the baby! Perhaps include both practical and frivolous gifts for your wife, since I suspect she considers the games to be frivolous.

Congratulations to both of you on the birth of your daughter!
