Long time of no updates. I’m sorry!
On Sunday we watched Howl’s Moving Castle because my gf had never seen it before. She loved it so much that she wanted to watch it a second time back-to-back. This is her watching it again, kneeling on the floor in front of the TV being all enchanted by the movie. If that’s not the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen then I don’t know what is!
Alright, so much for that. What happened in my gaming world?
- Uni has started again and now that things are in full swing I have little time to play (or paint for that matter) but I did manage to get a couple game nights with dear friends going so that was nice. Played some Agricola, Eldritch Horror, Lords of Waterdeep, Smash Up, X-Wing, 7 Wonders, and lots of Love Letter.
- I just participated in my first BGG math trade and scored some pretty sweet trades. My $30 dinged up ASL starter kit that I never got to the table got traded for a like-new Village plus the somewhat rare expansion Village Inn (together about $60). Then I traded my second Mice and Mystics expansion away for 7 Wonders Cities, and I got Agricola for Combat Commander: Pacific. All in all I’m very happy with my first math trade and I can only recommend it! If you are new to math trades too or you are intimidated by them, Rhado did a very helpful runthrough on math trades here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/video/32552/outside-scope-bgg/rahdo-runs-through-math-trades
- Then I’m also still waiting for stupid Warhammer 40k Conquest to be released but now at least we have an official date (3rd of Oct). I preordered it right after GenCon and after weeks of waiting and almost losing interest it’s finally due to ship any day now. That was somewhat fortunate too though because that way I could take advantage of a couple CSI daily deals that I was then able to combine with my on-hold preorder. I got a pack of Imperial Aces for $14, a Warhammer Diskwars expansion for $14, and today the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game - Skull and Shackles base set for $25. Pretty sweet deals!!
That’s pretty much all for now!
