Have a good evening.

On top of the above Bob, Ian is back in Ayr and has been for a week. I'm starting to believe the reason I don't get back to Newcastle is I get stuck back here running things while he travels Europe! (He was in Sicily for two weeks last month)

I actually don't really like games.

I was beginning to wonder where you had got too, since you had been so quiet. I started to suspect that you had been kidnapped by martians.

Oh, and you still own me a game of H&M............I've had the Fleurus scenario set up here for an age  ;)

With much regret, I have to withdraw from tonight's festivities. My wife set up a dinner with some friends without letting me know (this is a delayed "surprise" for my birthday).

I tend to feel about surprises the same way Ron Swanson does. Nonetheless, I appreciate the thought and will be dining rather than pacing a quarterdeck this evening.

Best of luck to all of the other captains!

I hope it's a very fine thing.

Sorry to have lost you!!!

What a very fine game.  I think it looked great and even got a nod from the game's designer on Facebook.

Thanks to all four players and a salute to the Bellerophon!

We'll try to wrap this next week.

We ended up at "The Liter House." German-inspired and a microbrewery. Turns out on Saturdays they have a thing called "Kolch Service." First one is $4, every one thereafter is $3, and they keep bringing it until you cry uncle. Schnitzel, pretzels, and currywurst were consumed. I missed the game to be sure, but a good time was had.

I must have missed you, and then got pulled into Warhammer. If you see me online, ping me and we'll play.

@PanzerDe - sounds excellent

Yeah, I saw you were deeply immersed in the WH stuff, so I didn't disturb you - next time, I'll give you a poke with a sharp stick.

Which was pretty much what was happening in WH anyway.
