Thomas Mauer, aka wanderingmouse, offered several of his sad, no-longer-played games through a list, and gave everyone an opportunity to give him the best reason why he/she should be given the game.

I put in for his copy of Kensington, noting that my young daughters (who even now I am corrupting into board-game madness...) would love the geometry and colors of the game, and it would be good as an abstract game for them.

I didn't get that game, but Tom promised that when he got back from his detachment, he'd send me something else for me and my kids - completely free of charge.

Sure enough, last week Tom sent us a copy of Snake Pit, a game that he claims is not his own design (but it does bear his name on it!) - already assembled and ready to play. My kids loved it - they already like Carcassone: Hunters & Gatherers, so this tile-laying game was right up their alley.

So, many thanks to Tom, a capital fellow and a great geek!

Now I just have to wait for someone to point out that I'm not following the Journal posting guidelines...

Shouldn't this have been handled via chat?

Jason, this sort of inquiry should really be submitted as a Bug Report. We have FAQs for a reason, please use them.
