The Taxman Cometh

A friendly little reminder--this is the last weekend before Uncle Sam wants his chunk of your change.

So, if you've got your taxes done, you're welcome to come over Saturday at 9am (yes, I will crawl out of bed and make my store run earlier this time) and celebrate your refund or forget about your indebtedness for a while.

Thinking about a short list for games this weekend:
Twilight Imperium- it's been 9 months since we've last played. Carlos and I have been talking about TI3 for a couple of weeks, and Ben and I have been destroying digital spaceships on the PC the past few nights, all of which have me wanting to play the board game. C'mon folks, it's about time.

Age of Conan- I know the game last weekend was generally well received, and although Ben's kitchen pass is probably used up for April, I think Jon has a copy, so we could try that if he brings it.

The other games don't really need quite as much advanced planning. Plus, I'm sure if one of these hits the table, the group will probably split so that there will be alternatives.

My wife's parents will be in town. That doesn't mean I *can't* come...it just means I'll have to be especially crafty.

As much fun as Twilight and Age of Conan sound I will make an appearance if there are other things played. Rock Band could be one of those games. I need something fun after this week.

No worries, Tiff. We'll pick something everyone wants to play. Come on over--we're not going to play anything that will leave someone out.

I should be able to come; Jon if it looks like Conan is possible, let us know, I will study the rules. TI sounds great too but I don't want to slow down an already long game.

Kitchen pass needs health.... badly!

I eagerly await the session report.

To say that I may possibly attend is to grossly understate the incompetence of American Airlines, DFW airport, and all involved parties.

So, I'm probable. I should know tomorrow ish.

I am very doubtful I am afraid but also look forward to the session report.

I shall be in attendance. With some of my games. Vain hope I know. But I can dream, right?

Did I say probable? I'm in. Most of the sordid tale is here.

Brian, does this mean that I bring the previously mentioned muffins?

 
At 2:25 PM, April 10, 2009, Blogger Brian said...

Muffins for passover! (I've already had donuts and brownies ....)

Hooray! My taxes are done. Now back to Diablo II leveling...

I made my store run tonight. Crazy, I know. But I'll be here at 9am tomorrow.

I will bring muffins. If they get eaten good. if not, that is OK too.

I have been especially crafty. Which means I'm in!

Oh, and I have a hankering for more C&C Ancients, if anyone is up for that.

Jon and I should be there at something approximating the correct time.

I will be bringing my xbox.

Did anyone get the spongebob pack? Come on...it's SPONGEBOB.

I'll be there as soon as my clients take their last test to complete ground school. Probably shortly after 10, and possibly ahead of Jon and Michael, who are still struggling with daylight savings time.
