Past, present and future
Wow, that old thread is like the "Big Bang" of the SABGers. I think that thread makes Ted, Brian, and Rob the "grandpas" of the group, and the relative newcomers like me the little kids sitting around the living room saying "Grandpa, tell us the story again about when there was no board gaming in San Antonio!"
Well, in the birthday spirit, here's to another good year of gaming and prosperity, healthy family additions, Race for the Galaxy and Arkham Horror expansions, less crime, more SABGers attending BGG.con (just go register, you know you're going), and the occasional suspension of rule #1.
Now for the present. We need to celebrate...by doing the same thing we always do. Play games. There has been some interest in playing Descent again, so this thread is probably a good place to express interest if you want in. Rob is also going to stop by, so the non-Descenters should have a good time of it (bring Kingsburg, Rob!), and it might not hurt to have a few non-Descent preference lists.
I can host, although I have to kick people out at 4pm. DL is a less desirable alternative (I don't think we'd haul Descent+infinite expansions there, plus I hate that the gaming tables are filled with the sale-that-won't-end stuff, pushing us to the dingy siderooms) but people can stay there as late as they want.
Anyway, discuss within.
(By the way, in response to Rob's request, Derk posted that there will be a "mega Rock Band" setup at BGG.con. Looks like we'll feel right at home.)
