Hey there......i just got this puppy in the latest math trade. After reading of its glory, i realized this won't see the table with our gaming group due to length.

So, my idea is i could have the person sending it to me, send it to you and you send me a game? So message me if you are interested in the next day or so.

Just let me know if you are interested, and i will look through your trade list....the game i get doesn't necessarily have to be on my wish list.

Today is march 13th, saturday............thanks

Two things:

1. Aren't you a little afraid that trading away a game you just traded for before you even get it will set up some kind of temporal paradox, perhaps even tearing a hole in the fabric of reality?

2. Silverton's pretty fun to play solo. Just saying.

yes, i am interested in temporal paradoxes and create them with intention. solo play...........hmmmmm.....i also am finding that playing with myself creates multiple temporal paradoxes.

i don't understand why the folks who love these long games, such as Silveron and 18XX, mostly love the longest versions. the original Silverton has the smaller map at least. it looks more playable in an evening

I can't say too much because we have only played one time. BUT... what I can say is we had a great time and only played to turn 16. OR... set a time limit. After 90 min. Game over; add the score. My point? just play till you want to quit...

For super long games that you want to play, but never have the time, I find this is one of the best things one can do. AS long as everyone knows the time limits, it's all good and fun.

When I met with the Denver Gamers group a couple of years ago, we held special Saturday "epic games" days at my son's house for those who wanted to give long games a try. Silverton was one of those, and we had a blast. Magic Realm and War of the Ring (original S&T version) were others. The pizza and drinks helped too of course...

I always play with 2 surveyors, regardless of how many players, to help speed up the development of the game. Using generic cubes on the mine instead of digging for the specific marker chip helps also.
