Those Darn French

Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to participate this Saturday in a board gaming session. I'll be busy installing two french doors on my house. Sacre' blue! If someone else is going to host Saturday gaming, please post here just in case my plans change for the better.

In other news Fire & Axe and Histories of Catan: Struggle for Rome have arrived at the Kindt residence and are beckoning to be played, which is helping to mitigate my Gollum-like yearning for Tide of Iron.

I had no idea that there was yet another Catan game. I'd like to play. I play regular vanilla Catan with my wife and kids at least once or twice a month.

As for a gaming Saturday morning, I will be at a Cub Scout Chess event with my son most of the day, so I too will be unavailable.

Thanks to Ted we had an short, impromptu afternoon gaming session.

First Ted and I muddled through the first half or so of a game of Arkham Horror. This is definitely a game you need to re-read the rules before playing, as it didn't really all click together for me again until we called it quits.

Why did we call it quits? Well, hunger first (fixed by a quick Quiznos run), and even better, Steve showed up. By that time we were running short of time and just played another 3-player game of Epic Duels (Mace vs. Obi-Wan vs. Jango). For some reason Jango and Mace were convinced I was running away with it, and before I could finish executing them both I fell victim to Jango's flamethrower. Argh! Mace/Ted then nicely re-enacted the scene where he slices up the skull of Jango quite nicely. Congrats, Ted!

Steve and I then spent a few minutes discussing the finer points of WotR, which he has arriving in a few days!

Thank you, Ted, for organizing this! You made my day.

Oh... the few bits of the Dark Pharaoh expansion we did see in our Arkham game were quite nice. I ended up becoming a psychic, which helped us overcome a few early hurdles. Then, on the other hand things were getting a bit tense when we had an Elder Sign burst... I look forward to playing a full game.
