I just received a large order from Miniature Market (thanks guys!) consisting of Super Dungeon Explore, Mage Knight, Undermining and Takenoko.

My 8 month old daughter started crying on the floor and wanted to hang out with Daddy as I punched bits. So I sat her on the sofa with me as I punched/de-blistered Mage Knight.

She immediately leans over into the box top and vomited into it.

Its a good thing that shes cute. Right?

Haha! She's an awfully considerate baby to have waited until you'd provided a receptacle.

I hope there wasn't too much damage. yuk

Hum, that is an interesting situation. Perhaps why I laminate lots of my gaming stuff.

Hopefully you were putting all the bits in the box bottom...

I was. There was minimal damage to the box as I had a fresh barf rag nearby, and cleaned it up immediately.

LOL!!!!

This cheered me up. Babies are awesome. I'm glad your game is ok.

I was helping my son potty train and he pee'd all over my shoes once.

Makes those reports of mold in game boxes seem not so awful.

A friend of mine peed all over his dad's shoes, too. Slightly different situation, though: He was 20ish and drunk and thought his parent's closet was the bathroom when he got home in the middle of the night.

Can't wait to find out what his dad was doing standing in the closet in the middle of the night...

You know, it might same save lots of time and costs if you'd just laminate the baby.

Well done. Aneirin's reaction to this comment was to laugh so hard I thought she would pee on her own shoes. She cannot explain why it is so funny, so I do not know if the effect can be replicated.

My wife has confirmed that "No, you may NOT laminate the baby. Why the hell would you want to do that?"

To which I responded "The geek said I should ask you. C'mon she would be shiny!"

"No."

After that the conversation degenerated into a lot "why"-"Because I said so" inanity.

Sad Panda.

...and, I would add, she made a contribution superior in substance to many posts I've read in other threads today.


How young is too young to get a GG tip? Congratulations on being a gaming Dad!

Speaking from my experiences with my own daughter, soon she'll be old enough punch out the chits herself. (and that is not a reference to toilet training).

Isn't this the kind of thing you don't want to post on BGG in case you want to sell or trade your game in the future?

I'm guessing his dad wasn't in the shoes at the time...
