Rambling about the weekend, tonight, and the car.

There was much, much fun had over the weekend in Long Beach, WA. Well, at least when everyone got there. Having an overturned truck in Nisqually made one couple with two kids take 9 hours to get there. I'm glad they didn't explode. We had plenty of food and plenty of fun. The mosquitoes were a bit much but we were able to cope with them too. There was much more that I was going to say but it's just about sleep time and I've forgotten. It was nice for the car to wait until I was driving locally for it to break down rather than somewhere on 101. Fixed now though.

We played a new game tonight that just came in the mail. Primordial Soup is a wondrous and delightful game that's lots of fun. It was a bit long but it was worth it. I can't give much of a summary since I need sleep. See the review. Unfortunately, it's only a three or four player game but that's only until Autumn when a new expansion comes out.

As you can see on here, frog_mb has decided to set up gaming at her place on the Wednesdays that it's not happening at TELS. Contact her at <meg_3454 @ yahoo.com> for more details and directions.

In an additional note, there is the "Devil's Workshop Hangout Night at happilymyself's" every Wednesday. Contact pooka_99 at yahoo dot com for details.

I've set up a mailing list to announce and discuss gaming. If you'd like a mailed announcement rather than just reading this post, say so and I'll add you...

In the past, we've played Primordial Soup, Game of Real Life, San Juan, Cricket Cricket, Settlers/Seafarers/Cities & Knights of Catan, Apples to Apples, Nodwick, Fluxx, Chrononauts, ImaginIff, Falling, Snits Revenge, Awful Green Things, Illuminati, Lunch Money, Filthy Rich, and others. It depends on what the folks that show up prefer as well as what they bring. Folks are welcome to bring their own games as well.

Note that many people _haven't_ played these games. Most of them are not overly complex and some can be taught on the fly. We do teach the rules before we play, so don't worry if the games aren't familiar.

It's okay to show up a little late to his since we usually play something light first, waiting for folks to show up.

Please feel free to show up. Bring snacks if you'd like although some snacks will be provided.
