I would highly recommend ordering from Boards and Bits. They have great customer service and it usually only takes a day or two to get the package since it ships from Toledo.

I've even stopped into their warehouse before, Rick is a super-awesome guy! I would call or email before you stop in to make sure it's cool.

Thanks for that! My only other option is really Amazon. I'll check B&B out!

-edit-

Placed my order with them.. $2 shipping and you are right.. Toledo is a day away shipping-wise.

Arrgh! For some reason I thought ROBA was the third Saturday of the month, which would clash with Great Oak in Ann Arbor. But then I come across this thread, and see it's the 4th Saturday, and of course I had an open Saturday this past weekend.

I'm going to have to make it one of these days and game with you players who I've only seen at Michicon and Wintercon. I've subscribed to this thread to remain aware of future meetings and changes.

Bill and I are were thinking about getting a game of Founding Fathers going.

Anyone else up for that? Though we'd also be interested in another gentleman's promo of 1812:Invasion of Canada I think.

Hey, I think that's me. I also have a copy of 1812 that I was planning to bring. I still will just in case more than 5 people want to play at the same time.

For anyone interested I have a copy of Dominion and A Game of Thrones: the living card game (with a few expansion packs) that I am happy to trade or sell. If interested, please contact me via my geekmail or talk to me on Saturday. I'll be the one with the red socks playing Founding Fathers and 1812 (yes--at the same time).

I also have a lot of games for sale/trade; check my BGG page and let me know if interested. If you go to the trade function, it will show the condition of the games (most are unpunched) and feel free to ask me questions. I can bring anything requested this Saturday.

Game-playing wise, just got an order in; might try to bring Blockade Runner to play.
