Tonight I'm watching the Nationals play the Mets in what will most likely be Bryce Harper's second to last game with the team. I'm currently learning GMT's Cataclysm and hope to play it at some point. I also still have AH's Victory in the Pacific set up. On the computer I will start super secret beta testing a highly anticipated new game engine (for me anyway!).  8)

More Red Dead Redemption. More rules reading in prep for Compass Con in November. Also looking to get LnL's Pacific War on the table early next week.

I have LnL's Pacific War but haven't played it yet. It would be interesting to hear what you think of it.

And what are you playing at the Compass Games Expo? I wonder if they will be showing Absolute Victory there. Another monster game I have that I need to learn.  8)

There are rumors of a review of a Pacific War review coming in a couple weeks. Don't spread that around though ;)

We were planning to play Balance of Powers at Compass con, but after a couple of play tests we decided it wasn't a good con game. So it looks like we will be playing Bitter Woods and Bitter End.

I've got Medieval on the table. And the rule book for Silver Bayonet out as well.

Also testing some scenarios for LnLP.

Got a campaign of Endless Space 2 going. So far I've played 300 of 700 turns... further than I've ever been in the game... let's see if I can actually finish this game.

I'm hoping to get a scenario from 'Canadian Crucible' started this weekend.
