I have copies of one or two of them from when I was a Wizard's Challenge DM.

I still have to dig for that stuff you and I talked about, so I'll add that to the queue. :)

They probably have lots of notes on them, but I know I kept them, and I may still have the scoring charts from when the tournaments were run.  I noted all the scores so that I could simulate the tournaments with my players and tell them how they would be doing compared to the teams that played the actual tournament.

Don't have anyone over.  It's not safe.  You shouldn't get closer than 2 metres/6 feet to anyone you don't live with, no matter your age.

Figure out ways to play things online, or play with the people with whom you share your household.

Ordered. :)

I spent the extra ten bucks to get it delivered to Canada.  Who knows when I will be allowed or even want to pick up packages at my Montana address again.

are you buying it?

I suggested Lori could get it for me for my birthday.  But yes, I'm pretty sure I want to get it.  :)

18xx in what is now Saskatchewan.  What is not to like?

Are you looking for the 1980 Samarkand or Routes to riches? I have Routes to riches which I am willing to part with, but not sure if that's the one you want.

Sorry, it's Samarkand (1980) (any more modern reprint is fine, too).  And I'm the Boss, not Who's the Boss.

It sucks, but it's for the best.

Let's hope that it isn't too many weeks before we can resume some normalcy.  A few weeks of pain and annoyance may do the trick, if we're a little lucky.

Looking for a decent-shape, complete copy of Sleuth by Sid Sackson.  Originally came out in 1971.

Also seeking Samarkand and Who's the Boss, also by Sackson.

If you have any or all of these for sale, let me know.  I can find decent copies in the US at decent prices, but shipping to Canada is prohibitive and I'm not sure when I'll next be able to get packages from my Montana address.

Thanks!

Jim

We could play at someone's house, too, if that makes people feel safer.

We'll cancel the game planned for March 24 since Murray can't make it.

Please let me know what dates you're available of March 31, April 7, April 14, April 21.  (I'm available for all.)

Obviously we'll need to wait and see a bit about how COVID-19 goes, but let's assume it's safe for us to play, and we can change accordingly if we must.

I am out for Risk due to quarantine

Risk Legacy cancelled then.  I'll post in our separate Risk Legacy thread about a make-up date.

Confirmed for Reef Encounter.

Everyone, wash your hands thoroughly and often and cough into tissues or your elbow. :)

Please sign my friends Parry and Laurie J. for Chartered and for Aladdin's Dragons.

This is a really interesting economic game somewhat reminiscent of Acquire, but with some different tactics.

Darren and Steve, I think you'll like this - let me know if you want to give it a try.

The game plays six but I'll limit it to 5 for time.

I'll bring some other miscellaneous light games (BANG!, Operation F.A.U.S.T., Res Publica) - help me chip away at my games-without-logged-plays list!
