...okay.  8)

5 days off (...in february, mind you...)! what to play, what to do?! of course, i'm master of my misery but still - i'd like y'all to know...  :waah:

hex and counter choice:
x-------------------------------------------------x
unconditional surrender (GMT) punched and played to death,
bitter woods (compass games) punched and not played enough,
hurtgen forest (DG) unpunched and waiting for some 'time off',
axis empires - tk (DG) unpunched and begging to be played!

funny lookin' contenders:
x-------------------------------------------------x
axis&allies anniversary,
eldritch horror (the mess) knowing it's gonna be played...,
conflict of heroes - solo... as always...,

awful looking - feeling bad competition... (5 days' not enough...)
x-------------------------------------------------x
every other game in my hideout(collection).  :2funny:

ok, i'll let you know what's going to be played when it's going to be played - deal?!
how about some cheering?  :whistle:

cheers! ...and don't forget to give me some advice -p-l-e-a-s-e-.-.-.-........  :biggrin:

Mansions of Madness is a good 2 person game since the app runs the monsters.  After that, Eldritch Horror because, you know, Cthulhu says so.

@airboy - i don't own MoM... quit buying into FFG after a heavy let down by my AH-LCG supplier. eldritch horror is a blast, though...! love that game to death, all expansions and stuff included - yeah!   :D

@brant - i really wish... wish myself the power to clip and dive into this madman. the setting is just pure ww2 mayhem!!! gunny does a real good job on explaining the game (guess y'all checked YT for that already, right?!). (he has a real bad time coping with them comments... though - like myself.) boy, this game needs more time off, i guess - maybe i can get some counters clipped for the short intros... good luck to myself.  ???

cheers!

my interest is purely personal - Hurtgen Forest was one of the bigger WW2 battles for 40th Armor, which I belonged to years later

FYI, the 5 days came and went... without any boardgaming fun what so ever - hell!

WHAT??!!

My goodness.

Clearly none of those games spark your joy and you should gently thank them and give them to me.

Marie Kondo wishes it so.

yes... it's THAT bad. sorry.

- the real chemkid died over 1 year ago... some kind of hole - sinkhole if you ask me.
- down, at the bottom of these forums i've got a 'free' give away posted... check it out - once the pipeline's open, i'm up for more (as you can imagine...)

sorry mates, had to give you the facts... (still, i'm keeping the really bad things to myself - promise!)

That's OK man, keep on giving us the facts even the really bad things. That's what we're here for. That and the size of our dongles. SEE.... it could get worse.  :notme:

At my age I'm actually more interested in donuts than dongles.
