My John Company 2e copy has arrived. Impressive production value, well run Kickstarter and I can't wait to try it (hopefully tonight).  :cool:

:yeah:

Looking forward to it, myself. I have a five-handed game of it scheduled later today.

Very glad I ordered the metal coins now, too.
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

Spending a rainy Saturday playing Pursuit of Glory using the CDG Solo system. It's pretty good fun.
The system reduces my analysis paralysis by only having 2-4 playable cards, which is a nice bonus.

If you fly on down on a weekend, I can slot you in.  :P

Great game! If you ever want to do some PBEM via ACTS and Cyberboard, let me know. Always eager to get another game of PUG in.

I'll keep it in mind, thanks!

Played my first game of JC tonight. Very cool, feels smoother than I thought it would and just clicked quickly for everyone involved. Can't wait to play again.

Felt the same way. Three of my five players were new to John Company and all really liked it. Plenty of hilarious narrative moments, nevermind the entertainment around the cruel incentives built into the system.

One of our players styled himself a Caesar and scored 8 victory tokens off of battles.

I got Gloomhaven and Charterstone for my birthday.

Also, Risk: Warhammer 40k.
PDH!

Charterstone was definitely worth the purchase for me. If you can't seat a full table, at least try to get 4 though. The game shines best for its legacy elements.
