Hi,

Nexus Ops and Cyclades have been on my radar for a short time. Before I make any kind of investment in these games, I'd like to try them out (especially since Nexus Ops is OOP).

Is anyone willing to teach me how to play one of these games? I learn pretty quickly, and I don't think I'm too unbearable to play with

I'm willing to meet you at a place of your convenience. The FFG EC might be the easiest option, but I'm open to anything.

If I have a game that you want to try, I could bring that as well.

Thanks in advance!

I'd be happy to teach Nexus Ops but you're 50 miles away from me. If you can't find anyone before the next Board Game Marathon you should sign up for that. Some peeps there will definitely help you out.

Thanks! Yeah, 50 miles might be a bit far. I bumped into someone who might bring it to the next MBGM, but I didn't want to wait that long

I have a horrible infliction where the instant I want to try out a game, I feel the need to try it as soon as possible. I'll just have to be patient cry

Thanks for the offer! I actually just played Nexus Ops this past weekend. I liked it, now I'm in the process of getting a copy for myself.

If you're in town on a weekend and want another player to join in on a game, let me know.

Your avatar looks familiar. Do you attend the MBGM events?

I have not, but I have thought about it. I go to the Rochester www.gamersreunion.com every year though. Have you ever been there?

I'd be up for teaching you Cyclades sometime. I live in Rosemount, work in Bloomington and game in Minneapolis. I have time the next two weeks open if you want to get together at the FFG EC or something. The game really doesn't shine with 2 though so we'll need to recruit more people, 4-5 is best.

If you like it enough you may be able to buy my copy. I enjoy it but have played it enough.

Thanks Matt. I'm not available this week due to the holidays, but the first weekend in December I'm open. Let me know if that works for you. I might be able to find a third player. Do you know anyone else who'd like to play?

I may be able to find one or two people. I'll see what I can do when we set a date. Geekmail me after the weekend and we'll see what works.

Sounds good. If we have 4 people, maybe we can get in a game of Chaos in the Old World afterwards. I wouldn't mind trying Cosmic Encounter or Galaxy Trucker either
