"Blow up the damned ship, Jean-Luc!"

I was browsing through RD's "America's 100 Best", which is mostly a waste of space, but then "Games" caught my eye (go fig!). Along with 20Q, an electronic 20 Questions, and Scene It?, a popular party game, I see Ticket to Ride. Here's what they said:

"In the board game Ticket to Ride, players race to build tracks across the United States and Canada, while trying to block the opponent's progress. A Parent's Choice winner in 2004 ($39.95; Days of Wonder)."

This must be the best promotion for our strategy/euro games yet. Think of how many homes have RD in their...homes. (yes, I was gonna say bathrooms!) They trust RD, they check out the game, they love it, they want more, sooner or later they find US! Get ready to welcome a new gaggle of gamers. (Is it a gaggle? Well, I like the alliteration!)

Not mention that Dr.'s offices get like free 5-10 issues subscriptions to throw around their waiting rooms.

In dentists' offices, it is a plaque of gamers.

You're right, Koldfoot, that is way too much thought given to such an inconsequential topic. But great reading! Thanks for your squandered brain power.

How about a gamut of gamers? Or a gambit of gamers?
