My birthday is coming up in a week or so, and since I'm extremely difficult to shop for, I sent out a wishlist to close friends and family and put my SO in charge of Q&A. Almost immediately, my Dad sent her an email calling dibs on first pick.

Fast forward to this morning. My SO and I are both home sick. Bleh. Dad emails to say I should expect a package today or tomorrow and that I should open it early since I'm not feeling well. Sure enough, around 1:00PM, UPS arrives with a box from ThoughtHammer. Inside the box is a ton of packing peanuts and a pristine copy of Indonesia, one of my favorite games.

I guess he saw the phrase "obscure and expensive boardgame imported from the Netherlands" and thought "ah, there it is, the clear best choice."

Thanks Dad. You're awesome.

Remeber this also if you ever have to choose a nursing home for your Dad.

I spoke with my Dad this evening and told him that Indonesia would be the centerpiece of my all-day heavy games day weekend after this one. Brass is also on the set-list - that was a Christmas gift from him last year.

Thanks for cheering up a sick geek everyone. Now if I could just get rid of this nasty cold!
