Hmm, I don't think I'm going to be there. I might appear, but right now I'm thinking no.

Kinda funny really since I'm the guy who wanted to AVOID damaging/changing the game

As the game progressed both Jaimie and I, without discussing it, mutually decided to keep Cameron off balance and crippled where ever possible, while at the same time expanding our own empires... whistle I think by now it's obvious that giving Cameron too much manoeuvring room in any game would be dangerous.

Eventually the world was split between Jaimie and I, and I thought that it was time to make my move...arrrh

Again it was kind of apropos for the game the way the changes took place and caused a fair bit of internal stress not knowing whether the change I was triggering would benefit or ( as I suspected ) negatively impact my military plans. ninja

My gut feel on this is that each boxed game "may" be set differently (which would be really kind of cool.) meeple And no I'm not going to say which way it went but the changes were impressive none-the-less! shake

Eventually world domination was secured, but I stopped short of completely destroying Jaimie and allowed him the "honour" of coming in second... because without his help in "containing" Cameron the results could have turned out completely different!surprise

An awesome game.... I"m a convert - who knew LOL

Just a note for the regulars who know Cameron - he was admitted to CHEO this past weekend. What was originally was thought to be a simple infection appears to be much worse. We are trying to stay positive - please sent your good thoughts and hopefully we will be able to be back a game club soon (We have to get back at Rick for all the writing he has been doing to our Risk board).
