Disney Gauntlet was the first game I remember playing with stonecutter and it was a blast watching him shift forms halfway through the game and go full outed evil. He did an incredible job and made me crack up countless times throughout that game. And that's what Stone's like in all the games he plays - if you let him survive a day or two, he kicks into high gear like no one else I've seen and will be relentless at searching every post everyone made. I've never had someone who can look at every post I made (as evil) and be able to say "Oh, well, look at this list of reads clearly these people are evil together" and be so dead on. He's one of the people that I'm most worried about when I'm evil and most excited to be on a team together as good.

Stone's a great person to play with and to chat with and I hope our schedules work out sometime to let us meet! But until then, he always makes me smile when I see him around BGG.

Board games have been a big part of my life. Throughout high school I would game with a group of friends after school when I could and it really meant a lot to me. When I went off to college, I met a whole lot of really fun board gamers, and then when I moved to Chicago for grad school I tried to be a big part of the gamer population when I was there.

I've always loved playing games, which is in stark contrast to the rest of my family, so it was a really important thing to have friends to play board games with. I played a lot of video games when I was younger, but the evolution moved to board games as I got older, since the commitment was not quite as much, and it was easier to play a game when you had the free time.

So, as far as my favorite games go, my all time favorite is definitely Yahtzee. (Just kidding). In reality I loved playing old classic games like Risk, Diplomacy, which eventually set me up for some more instensive board games recently such as Mage Knight, World of Warcraft board game, and Battlestar Gallactica. I also love some easier board games as well, especially ones I can be less intense about, such as Settlers of Catan, Galaxy Trucker, Space Alert, Cosmic Encounters, Codenames, and Don't Wake Daddy.

I was introduced to Werewolf, and actually that was where I was really introduced to the wonderful community on here. I love playing social deduction games like the Resistance, Coup, Avalon, but I really loved Werewolf. I didn't mind the elimination and enjoyed watching even when eliminated, and loved the thrill when you finally figure something out, or find that logic flaw that keys the way to victory.

Even though I have been gone for a couple months now with student teaching, I still have great memories of the great games that went right and wrong for me. I still remember the first Witch Hunt game which was my first game, and being the only person who was right about Syntax while everyone wanted to lynch Vanders, because no one listened to my logic, which I could still repeat today. Rainbows 3 is another one that came to mind, and was really a game where I really earned a lot of respect in the community nearly winning a final 3 faceoff with Chrono. Under the Sea 1, but definitely not Armored Werewolf (Sarah).

As an evil team member, Werewolf Legacy 8 was a fun one, but I got quite a bit of benefit of the doubt as that was when my schedule began to close up for student teaching. My other two times to shine were each in majority rules games Meditations (my first game as evil), and Rainbows Majority Rules. The games I mentioned are some of many that I played. I still think about the site a lot, and wish I had a position where I could play games while at work like so many of you. I should be able to play more next month, and am really looking forward to playing with so many of you again. I miss you all very much

It was a pleasure to meet so many of you at Gencon. I wish my schedule worked to go to Cabincon and BGG con, but I do plan on going to next year's Cabincon! It was an amazing experience and I hope to do it again really soon.

My favorite part about teaching is just being able to teach something that I am passionate about to a group of kids and hopefully try to reach them. It doesn't always work, but the challenge keeps me going, and I have a great group of kids.

Recently, I played Survive! Escape from Atlantis, and played with some friends, and it was a nice chill game. It was a lot of fun and easy to play, and is a fun game to pick up while maybe watching TV or hanging out with friends and drinking or other activities.

I think understanding how to bet when you don't have a bomb is something that can be hard to do and understanding which hands you have to win, and which hands are not worth burning a wild to win.

17 hearts games are still acceptable.

The Indians of course . I would really like to see the White Sox get good again and have a good Chicago rivalry going again.

Somewhere I could benefit the lives of people around me in a positive way, but would also somehow allow me to keep playing werewolf

My favorite kind of french fries are the edible kind.

Doctor Who is no longer on Netflix. My favorite Netflix show is probably Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Unfortunately I have been more partial to Hulu lately with great shows like Seinfeld and South Park, but I did go through a 30 Rock run lately. Futurama is a great show too, and of course Arrested Development is an all time favorite.

Beren and I prefer to keep things mysterious.

Hippogriff.

Whole banana



Winning run cool



Probably only about six, bird classification is not my strong suit.

Pound of chocolate, no contest.

I haven't streaked, but I've skinnydipped before. Somewhat close?

Telescope, I've always been a huge astrology fan.

Leaving a career where I had the potential to make a lot of money for a career where I probably wouldn't make a ton of money. I'm happier now.

My favorite role was the Holy Hunter role that I played in Demon Spirits. That was a game I really had a lot of things right, but I just gave Amekins the benefit of the doubt most of the time.

In fact, you were the one that got kind of screwed over by that role when you countered me with a normal hunter role claim and it didn't seem as believable compared to all of the other stuff that went on in that game.

Favorite games were Rainbows 3, Demon Spirits, and Under the Sea, where I really started to get a read on a lot of the players who would become pillars in my werewolf experience.

Yeah, I did not think that claim through thoroughly!

You were so great in that game. That's the one I was talking about specifically when you went through every single post of mine practically and accurately called out who was good/evil based on that.

Yeah, but even in your downtime you pop up now and again, which is different than "gone".

This is the new Cassy, and sign up for Massacre!!!

In fact, 2013 was the only season since 2010 we didn't split the series or win it outright.

Somehow, I'd rather take the Cubs 2016 season over the White Sox 2016 season.

We got a bigger trophy than the crosstown classic cup

Fair enough. Just saying the rivalry is there. Plus I can say we only lost a single playoff game in OUR championship run.

But agree, I'd love to see a cross-town WS
