I had been looking to try and get a copy of the game for about a month or so, and without my knowledge my wife found a copy and convinced my father-in-law to get it for me for my Birthday.

The funny part is I tried to trade for a copy and that fell through, and then I was about to buy a open and punched copy but my wife was like, well we can't afford to buy a game right now. Then a week later I get the game new in shrink

Needless to say I was very surprised I was not expecting it at all.

I haven't had a chacne to play it yet, but will soon I hope!

well then, congratulations and let us know if you like it.

I like the general idea of the mechanism.. the game is just pretty difficult to get over here.

She said she felt so bad when she told me that we couldn't afford to buy it 'cause she could see the disapointment and she just wanted to tell me that I was getting a new copy!

She had her Dad get it because if it came from her I might have been able to guess what it was before opening it.

Apparently I was stressing her out with trying to trade for it and buy it etc.

Kudos to her for getting you such a cool gift and for keeping the secret.

Who says romance is dead?

I know it's only a small thing in the overall scheme of life's ups and downs but what a great story!!

Brings tears to my eyes ...

Congratulations! I purchased this one a few months ago (payed double the price after taxes and shipping costs) and only had the time to play it once so far, but it was a blast. I very much recommend the player aids from domus_ludorum in the files section. These really help you getting started.

So true, I do have a great father-in-law. Not even just for getting the game, but all the things that he helps out with.

I opened it today and punched the counters and started reading through the rule book. Haven't played the game yet.

My next step is to finish reading the rule book and then play the first scenario that uses half the map to get a feel for it.
