I forgot how awesome this game is... and then I started to get mad....

So, there I was at my FLGS. We had already played a few different games today. All of them were good/fun. Everyone left, and it was me and the shop owner. He said, "Hey, you want to play Eminen...".

"Yes!", I interrupted before he could finish. I hadn't played in about month, trying my best not to play it before the Kickstarter copy arrives... for some reason. Maybe, I don't want to burn myself out before it gets here. Something, like that.

As we were playing, I started to get that old familiar rush. "Dangit, he's flipping planets faster than I thought he could! Idiot, I need to make better decisions on what I'm chucking at the end of my turn! Ah, here we go! I should research this and then this!"

Etc... devil

After the rush subsided, I started to feel that old familiar (and irrational) anger well up inside of me. "Where is my copy!?", I shouted to myself. I answered back, "It's probably still on the boat. Don't be selfish!".

So, why am I posting this?

"A". To vent obviously.
"B". Because I'm bored.
And "C". Any update on the location of said "boat from China"?

Unless the answer is, "On the return trip home" I won't be satisfied anyway. I feel ya though. I'd love to know too but I don't think we will know until the boat gets in.

Yeah, I know how you feel too. It's been a long, long wait. A few weeks ago I got to see tons of people playing various copies at a local con and I knew I wouldn't get mine for another couple months. It's sad. Fortunately I got plenty of other games so I try not to think about it.

Bah Lance. Display that thing with pride. I'm in an okay position anyway since I have my PnP copy and still get to play it here and there. I've been holding out on introducing the game to too many friends until the final version gets here though since the artwork will help grab them that much more.

BTW, I have to admit I don't really follow your videos religiously but I am really looking forward to watching your EmDo one!

I finally broke down and played this with a friend and his GenCon copy. Looking forward to having my copy, but had exactly the same feelings as the OP.
