In which we are dissed as posers

It's right here, but you'll have to look carefully, it's subtle. Let me help you ...
I’ve been unable to find anyone in [San Antonio] who plays Cities & Knights Of Catan. Settlers players are a dime a dozen in any city with a large underground geek population, but very few have the courage to step up their game to the hardcore grind that is C&K,
Geek pissing wars are always a lose-lose, so I'll just note that someone has already pointed the author to this website. I am packing plenty of snark, though, should any wars erupt, as you would expect.

Settlers C&K is a "hardcore grind?"

I have Settlers ranked higher than BSG. I think.

C&K hardcore? lol...

BTW, Brian, speaking of hardcore, I think you'll enjoy Automobile. I REALLY liked it. Would be interested in seeing what you think as a more experienced Wallacee (at least when it comes to his other economic masterpiece, Age of Steam. I have mainly played his newer stuff....Brass, After the Flood, and now Automobile).

Ugh. Cities and Knights is hardcore only in the "grind" sense... Nothing like being in a clearly losing position with 2+ hours to go in a game... It's a fun game if it's close, but there needs to be a mercy rule for any game lasting longer than three hours. Maybe it was just the crowd I was playing it with... They got pissy with me when I started making choices based on making the game end quickly, instead of "rewarding" the best player...
