I think we can do better than 10 years this time. If we all just put in a little more effort we can do this all over again sooner than later.
It isn't often that a thread starts with the premise of having it closed by an Admin faster than a preceding thread, but here we are!

Gotta have goals. Or in this case an end game.

I'm as surprised as anyone that Octavian came in early to close the old thread, but I was coming to say something just like what Diane said: Chad's goodnight to my goodnight to Kenny's original post seems just about right.


And thanks for the final stats, James!
I'm happy that I contributed almost 1% to such a great endeavor.

We will always have our good nights to look back on.

Since the demise of the Level Up Games store in South St. Paul,
our regular Monday night group have been rotating locations; so far it has been Dreamer's Vault on Hiawatha and the Gaming Goat - Eagan. This Monday (10-07-19) we will be at the Eagan G.G. again.
Monday October 14 & 21 we could still game there or look for another place.
John, the manager at the Eagan Gaming Goat, will be on vacation the following two weeks (Oct. 28 & Nov. 4).
Still open to suggestions for gaming locations.

I have been chronicling our situation here:

I'm really disappointed that the other thread didn't keep going past 1000 cause I was so ready with this...

The worst part of the new thread...
That I have to now search for this thread near the top of my subscriptions instead of reliably being able to scroll to the bottom of the list. (For when I want to post here and it's not in my unread list.)

They now have a quickbar. If you click the 3 lines next to the orange Ernie next to BGG at the top of the page the quickbar will appear. Then just click the plus. It will save were you are at but you can at least get to the thread fast.

As long as people are reminiscing about their first post in the original thread...

Mine was the first post on page 349 - a surprise reaction that a game store had beer on tap. It was my 14th post to a "Site" forum; although I had been quite active in "Board Game" forums.
It was 3.5 months after I officially registered with BGG.
Reading page 348, I vaguely remember it, so I must have lurked for a while.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Gosh I wish the UI to browse your contributions were better. Having to click through each and every page takes too long, especially when you have 82 pages to click through.

Oh, I have been using the quickbar from the beginning. (Although I've only known about the other 9 pages of it for about a year.) I guess I never thought to put this thread in the quickbar, since it was easily found in the "Manage Subscriptions" page.

Edit - first die roll in the thread: First! 1000d2 = (2 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 2 + + more...) = 1537

Right, the quick bar has been around for years but many people didn't seem to know about it until the recent update. I'll admit I didn't start using it for my most used threads and geeklist until a couple years ago.

I didn’t think of the quickbar. My trick for years is:

When I go to the subscriptions page and MPLS/STPAUL and TCAT are a ways down the page, hit unsubscribe and then immediately resubscribe, so they stay at the top of the first page.

I would love to play again (just looked, and it appears it was 10 years ago I last played), but my availability right now is pretty limited.

So aside from The End is Nigh, how about some game night planning?

So Mystical Games & Collectibles (mysticalgc.com) opened recently. Anyone interested in doing a game night there? It's kind of on the way home from work for me. I haven't otherwise checked it out though but from the pics, it looks nice (those padded chairs!).
From what I hear it has a decent playing area, roughly 60-70% of what Lodestone has (and they have a good amount of tables). I don't remember their hours, are they open past 10?
Unfortunately, they are only open to 9 (?) most nights. 10 on Saturday. That's probably prohibitive, but they're new so perhaps it could change if there was a reason to be open.

I was going to ask if anyone in the Monday night gaming crowd would want to meet at a location that'll have the Twins ALDS game playing. But goodness I don't think it's going to be something enjoyable to watch now... soblue

I came back to 271 notifications (hadn't posted much before that either) and missed out on the last 10ish pages in the old thread. Also the next three pages of the new thread. Not a good showing from the #4 volume poster...

Here's to many more happy gaming sessions and post whoring.
