  1. I've actually fallen out of Netrunner. The community collapsed here so I stopped playing (could have continued online through Jinteki.net but didn't). As for Agricola, those expansions are just for the All Creatures 2 player version. Standard Agricola, I only have the core game (pre-reboot). I actually have only played Mice and Mystics solo though...
  2. I thought it might be fun, for those so inclined, for all us Barkers and/or Viking Lumberjacks to post links to our Board Game Geek profile if you have one. Maybe you'll see a game in their list you've thought about picking up and can ask about it! If you don't have a Board Game Geek or RPG Geek account, it's just a database website letting you track what games you have and log plays. I know, I already created a thread about showing our board game rooms, but sometimes that doesn't encompass the full collection. I thought this would be a cool way to share. I also put the link to my collection in my profile, which seems like it might be better considering this thread may eventually be buried by fallen trees and leaves. But it was a good place to start. Navigating to your profile editor is easy. Top right corner of the forum is your name, click it for a drop down menu. Hit "Account Settings," then on the right under "Other Settings" is "Edit Profile." Bark Loudly. https://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/TheAuthorOfOZ
  3. Chaos Control

    This reorganization is how MOST forums I visit work. It's good to have things categorized. There's plenty of sections I never read in other forums. Also, for those complaining about having to navigate a few clicks, just go to your most visited sub-forum and make a bookmark in your browser for it, and click that instead!
  4. Our Game Rooms

    Agreed, the throne video was hilarious. Sadly I'm probably done with KS for a while...finances...
  5. Fun Holiday Memories

    A few years ago, I decided to do that thing where I drove home Christmas Eve to see my parents without them knowing I was coming. I stealthily asked them a week before if they were planing on going anywhere (Rolled Subterfuge +5). Once I knew they would be staying home, I drove 5 hours home and arrived at 8pm or so Christmas Eve. I rang the doorbell, and my dad came to answer. As soon as he saw me he burst out laughing, then opened the door and gave me the biggest hug I can remember giving me since I graduated college. "Merry Christmas dad," I said, with a s***eating grin on my face. "Hello son," he said into my shoulder. I asked him where mom was and he said she was upstairs in the living room. I go up the stairs just as my mom comes out of the living room to find out what's going on. She sees me and starts crying. "You're home!" she says. I give her a big hug and kiss and say Merry Christmas again. And, because my mother is THAT Italian, the second sentence out of her mouth is, "are you hungry?" Yeah, I enjoyed that Christmas Eve.
  6. Your Most Anticipated Games

    I'm actually waiting with baited breath for Legends of Andor Part III: The Last Hope. My group for it has completed the first game, the expansion mission, and just started Journey to the North last week. After that one's done, we can continue on to this! (Haven't tried the bonus missions on their website though). https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/198287/legends-andor-last-hope
  7. Viking-Themed Games

    There's always Champions of Midgard. Similar to Stone Age (worker placement + dice rolling). Good happy medium of complexity. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/172287/champions-midgard
  8. Worst Defeats

    Had a similar experience with Code Names classic, where in round 1, guess 1, the guy picks the assassin because he put the clue completely differently in his head than any of us expected. Give me some time to think about what my WORST defeat was though...
  9. Guess the Games

  10. Dog Might Action Photos

    Those shots of Spice Road really show off the usefulness of those stands!
  11. Favorite Dogmight Product

    Since I don't really play tabletop RPGs with minis anymore, a lot of your products designed to hold minis are out for me. Favorite for me as a board game fiend is the CoCo, and when I get it I will show you just how excited I am.
  12. One Shot RPG Ideas

    Following up here: I want to know how this went!? Did your new apprentices enjoy it and level up to seasoned gamer level?
  13. Pictures of DMG products at home.

    I'm so glad this thread exists. When I get my CoCos, I will post so many pics.
  14. On the lookout for awesome new games

    I mentioned Numenera (a tabletop RPG) in a previous post. Looks like Monte Cook Games are giving it an overhaul, and is being launched on Kickstarter:
  15. New Kickstarter soon....

    Ah. I play a lot of RPGs now that don't require tactical play mats.
