Forget the Quadfecta! The Ocho!

Assuming that tonight goes off without any disasters (fashion or otherwise) then non-Hollywood related gaming will start again tomorrow night. I'm itching for some Through the Ages (and if Chris shows up we'll only really need 1 to have the right number). I'm think a full game with all the trimmings ....

But while our Quadfecta will be done, a lucky gambler in England parlayed an 8-race bet into $2 million. I couldn't find the version that Chris showed me yesterday, which included the line (paraphrased) "After being informed of his winnings the man visibly blanched and then said he would have to tell his wife." Such is the power of the Ocho!
So, let everyone know if you'll be there tomorrow PM.

If the "ocho" were real, I'd watch it every day. I should be there about 6ish...

Hello,

My name is Travis and I've been reading your blog for a while and would like to get out and meet a few of you. I will try to get to Dragon's Lair by 6:00 and hopefully sit in on a game or two.

Open discolsure: I am a little green so I may slow things down a little!

Looking forward to it,
Travis

Travis,

We look forward to meeting you! Always glad to see a new face. We're a pretty friendly group, and willing to teach a lot of different games. See you tonight!

Sorry I couldn't make it on Sunday, Sean. I was pretty wiped out and couldn't muster the energy.

"I am a little green ..."

We do not discriminate on the basis of color.

We're always glad to have a new player join SABG. The more the merrier.

"It looks like he's dead."

"Wait hold on, you mean he is dead, or he just looks that way."

"I mean he looks that way, hes covered in green paint or something."
