Well, shit, we've lost Leonard Nimoy.

I think so. I've played both Marvel and Aliens a few times, and the superhero or action/horror/SF trappings are ... trappings. The publisher could have created their own property and characters and whatnot, and the game would still be fantastic - they had the money to pay for licenses to give a really great game a broader initial hook.

I can't remember if there's a 2014 board game thread,

Don't think there is, so this one will handle our boardgaming discussion needs now and forever.

but Legendary Encounters: Aliens is teh bomb-diggity.  Continues Legendary's tradition of having incredible flavor despite being a deckbuilding game. Terrifying co-op, and the first player that gets chestburtster'ed drives around a fully armed and operational xenomorph suit with his evil PC brain.  Pro-tip: never, never, ever leave a facehugger alive if you can help it.  Shocked

Truth. It's a tense, difficult game, and more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

I'd throw you some cocoa if we had any to spare.

No worries - I have bourbon-flavored coffee, and that'll soon give way to bourbon-flavored bourbon.

We've got CWGs and the wind is still trying to chill our bones.  We've got Pizza and Descent 2 tonight on deck.  Too cold for Speeders and the TaunTauns are already dying within the first klick. 

Good stuff! Have fun, TSK!

I picked up the Gates of Arkham expansion for Elder Sign this afternoon. As we're expecting another round of horrible weather tonight, I think I'm going to break this one in with a couple of solo runs.

That's one of Kevin's first freelance projects. I'm really excited to see it on the market, and looking forward to getting a game in soon. Glad to hear you liked it.

I think you'll dig on it. It's a good mix of cooperative-competitive.

I'm still convinced he designed Android specifically for me, BTW.

Nothing new purchased yet, but will probably pick up Gates of Arkham tomorrow night.

I played IDW's new X-Files game last weekend. Really liked it, even if CSM defeated us.

And this thread, too, goes six feet under.

It's been suggested that we have a thread for questions from new forum members, like the existing one over in the Fantasy Craft subforum. So, let's try it! New to the game and our community, and have a question? Here's the place for it.

Ask and answer away!
10  Community / Customer Service / Re: An idea about spam on: December 26, 2014, 03:59:54 PM
That's a pretty good idea, davichido. I'll go start one in the Mistborn subforum, since that sees a lot of new user traffic.

Closing this one for a few. Check your PMs.

And reopened. Carry on.

According to Wikipedia its even worse, some dry counties have wet precincts and vice versa.

Apparently pharmacies can sell wine and liquor, but not beer and grocery stores can sell beer but not wine and liquor. Plus there's apparently seventy different kinds of liquor license.

It's weird, yeah. Beer in the coolers in the grocery departments, and a store-within-a-store that sells things I drink. The laws require a separate entrance.

And I thought PA's liquor laws were screwy.

Well, it's not mutually exclusive.

So how many locals are actually tapping those barrels isn't so important..?

Minimally so. Because of the Commonwealth's local-option laws, there are swaths where alcohol sales of any kind are illegal, so bars just can't exist there.

County-by-county prohibition's bad. I grew up in a dry county, and there was an unwritten rule that late on Friday and Saturday nights, you did not travel on one of the roads in the northwest part of the county without very good reason, because of the large number of people driving back from the nearest wet county, in various stages of intoxication.

The "standout stat" for Kentucky is nonsense. 1 bar per ... whatever. We have more barrels of bourbon than citizens here in the Commonwealth. All else pales in comparison.

were do find color copy of books at?

Probably only in used bookstores. Noble Knight has a couple of copies on hand at the moment - nobleknight.com, if you're unaware.
