"What do you want for Christmas, little boy?"

Ho. Ho. Ho.

I'm leaning pretty heavily towards ordering Neuroshima Hex and Dominion. I'd like to get one more game, but nothing looks compelling. I know Tiff wants Mr. Jack the Expansion. I think Michael may have been considering something. And Ben is always up for buying new games (at least board games don't give you the RRoD when you open them up). I was going to talk about it this weekend, but I figured other SABGers that don't/can't come to Saturday or Monday gaming might also be interested in joining this order to save on some shipping. I'll probably order sometime next week, and post somewhere on this blog before I do so, so people have a few days to think about it.

Easy way to get Christmas gifts for that board gamer in your family! (Even if it's you...)

Tiff wanted the Mr. Jack Expansion. Now she wants other things. She just needs to decide what it is that she wants.

I think I'm in for Dominion.

I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!

No rifles for you, Michael. You might shoot your eye out.

Cosmic Encounter, Zooloretto Gorilla, Neuroshima Hex Babel 13, Combat Commander Pacific and Stalingrad, After the Flood, Unhappy King Charles... Oh wait, I already ordered these for pre-holiday delivery.

My RRoD return box arrived! As did my Black Friday on-line purchase: Tom Clancy's End War.

Wow, it is cold out. I don't want to go run...

Running when it's cold is the best, as long as you do your stretching beforehand.

Ben: Weren't you the guy who just made a soul searching post about fewer new games and more time on each one?

Yep, it was cold. I actually never stretch beforehand, which probably explains why I stagger around like a rusty robot when I get out of bed eachn morning.

Actually, Ted, this does reflect a reduction... but, you're right. This will probably be the last wave for a while.

"Ted, this does reflect a reduction."

Ben is my new hero.

Ted, Ben is searching his soul ... for more spaces to put games. He didn't actually promise any soul-finding. Just searching.

And note how he didn't actually define "a while."

Ok, well, I figured I better let you guys know just in case.

Amazon has a sale on Banjo Kazooie today.

There is a demo if you want to try it first. I've read some decent reviews and I might give the demo a shot tonight after I resolve lynch.

Worst demo ever if you are playing on a standard TV.

The text is 100% illegible. Baah, as much as I am nostalgic for a platformer, this is utterly useless.
