ok, now i have to ask... i have been lurking for some time


(aside: how i found BGG) i found BGG by coincidince: play D&D frequently and also tabletop mini wargames warhammer, warmachine, etc... in any case i bought battleground fantasy warfare because it looked fun, cheap, and something i can use to play wargames with non-gamers. in any case i had a rules question about battleground and i e-mailed the designer, who has a ps in his reply asking me to go to boardgamegeek.com and rate battleground if i liked it. so i dropped by, was intrigued, and stayed. a week later i found myself buying settlers of catan... then cities and knights... then seafarers... then the 5-6 player x-packs... and now im looking into the next game im going to buy

in any case, my question, i have to know... what is the whole wicker basket thing... i just don't get it

That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

It's pretty recent.

(much more recent than Jingles the Donkey )

I think I'm right in saying "He started it!":

It was just something stupid I made up for no particular reason. It really isn't supposed to make any sense.

I agree about the avatar. I wish I wasn't such a newbie so I could start a GG collection to kill the avatar. I peaked on this site at work today...I'm afraid that avatar is not going to sit well with my boss.

I am not sure why your boss would see it unless you showed it to him/her. Clear your cache before you go home. Or, use Firefox with adblock and you can blacklist it. I am actually surprised I can see BGG from work... most sites that have 'game' in the title are blacklisted by my firewall.

If someone starts a collection and I'd consider changing it... that is not why I selected it, to get GG... but if people feel the I need I'd consider it for > 50gg.

It would be foolish, nay a veritable catastrophe, if we started to pay people to stop displaying 'inappropriate' avatars. Simple economics dictates that this policy would produce more inappropriate avatars than there are colonists in Puerto Rico.

That said, Pronoblem, could you please not use that image?

Dangit, all I see is plain 'ol, vanilla, everyday, Hasselhoff-free Pronoblem. The new avatar must have come and gone quite quickly, or my computer is in denial.

Ahh, there we go. To think I might have missed that...

You know, Hasselhoff really brought something to the table in the realm of fictional, televised law enforcement, not to mention the genre of fictional, televised beach rescue. But I think his proudest moments were those spent behind the dark goatee of Garth Knight, the dashing, hard-edged Yin to the more complex-seeming Yang of dashing ex-con Michael. They must have shot those scenes on different days--no one could just flip a switch like that.

Anyway, I say it's a fine choice for an avatar, particularly in these troubled Holiday times.

Since when has Pronopoblem been Hasselhoff-free? I'll believe it when I see it.
