Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving. Pratchett

Congratulations Bill!


What's the strangest thing you have ever done to a boardgame or a BG component?

Hey Bill, do you like to share some of your best pics you took during your trips? Or any others that spring to your mind?

Congratulations, Bill! Enjoy your week! I hope you get some interesting new flags with all the extra visits to your profile.


Hi Rich and many thanks my friend. I hope to get some new flags too. I've been on a dry run, ever since you've returned from vacation.

Stay hoopy!

Hey girl! Long time no see. I hope all is well with you. I miss seeing you around.

Meeples are so yesterday. I sometimes substitute them out for little alien figures.

I haven't had to many chances to get out and play with the new camera and it's tremendous zoom, except for on the beach, but I don't think I should post those pics here. I know, I'm a bad alien, but it's all part of the human experiment.

I'll be sure to post some in the Love thread when I'm off duty and I get out next time. It would be a lot easier, if you humans weren't so confusing.

Thank you. Bill is easier for you humans to pronouce and remember. It's kind of grown on me, so it's kind of who I really am, while here on Earth.

Okay. Why not an alien? Interesting choice Michael.

CONGRATULATIONS!
"Bill"


Hmm, lots of sports games, lots of Euros, some board games and a smattering of near war games.

d10-1 No war where you come from?
d10-2 You're not one of those wimps from the other side of the Crab Nebula, are you?
d10-3 You claim to have a skull collection: How many and from how many different planets?
d10-3A Favorite skull? (I know, who can choose? But try.)

d10-4 What's your 'Go to' game, when you just want to guarantee you'll have a good time.
d10-5 Got any spare anti-matter? I'm just dying to make a quick run home for some Vegan take-out.

Cheers!

I have known Bill for the past 7 years or so.
I game with him consistently almost every Weds. night.
Here are a few things I've learned:
1. The man does not snack when he plays.shake
2. The man has the strangest assortment of pants I've ever seen.yuk
3. Is one of the worst explainers of rules.whistle
4. Does not find the Matt Spence varient of games fun. (That's where rules only get explained if they help me win)devil
5. He has the neatest collection of games I've never heard of.
6. Plays well with children.
7. Is able to wax philosophical about the joys of BBQ all night long cool
8. More addicting to thrifting than I am. arrrh
9. Not a Kyle Busch fan cry
10. Does not understand my obession with soccer
11. Will never talk my wife into gaming until he finds a game based upon scrapbooking gulp
12. Is a euro gamer but very tolerant of my ameritrash
13. Is probably reading this at home, thinking "is this an April fool's joke?"

Congrats Bill
Some questions that the Spence household want answered
1. Paper or plastic?
2. Lather and rinse, but do you repeat?
3. Fluxx or Arkham Horror?
4. Worst game you've ever played
5. Game I own you'll never play with me
6. Game you own, which I'll never play with you
7. If you could make a homemade version of a game, which one?
8. Who did it? In which room? with what weapon? from Clue
Enjoy the week
See you Weds.

Thank you kindly good sir.

1 - Nope no war where I come from. Remember, we come in peace. goo goo

2 - Nowhere even close to SN 1054, but a good try.

3 - I'd say I have about 50 different ones, but am guessing, as a lot of them are stored away.

3a - I couldn't quickly find any pics on the net of any of my favorites, but here's one that I'm keeping an eye on to possibly purchase.



4 - I have a good time with all of my games. It really depends on my mood and if I'm playing solo or with friends, so there really is no one game in particular.

5 - HEY! That stuff is DANGEROUS!!! You should've seen what it did to my driveway, when I tried using it on the BBQ grill. Luckily the human car didn't catch on fire, but it was damn close and I'm not even going to tell you how funny my friend thought it was, watching me run for the hose, while my feet were on fire. laugh

Many thanks for the hoopy questions.

Congratulations my HOOPY alien thriend!

What do you have to say about the billboard I pass on my way to work everyday. You know, the one that says the alien abductions are fake?

What is the weirdest thing you have ever BBQed?

I just pruned my fruit trees if you want to come on over for some fresh wood chips for the BBQ. You could bring a game or two too... goo goo

HAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh my god, you crack me up Matt. See why I love gaming with this guy? He's great. laugh

First of all:
1 - I snack sometimes. You're just in the bathroom, when I raid your refrigerator.
2 - Hey I like to be different. You know you're jealous of my pants. I even have your wife buying them for me. laugh
3 - Hey, you try explaining some of these Euro games. At least I get the rules right.
4 - The Matt Spence varient only works well with Tyrus. In fact, that's the only way I will play it now, as it makes the game SOOOOO much better. I guess you get lucky once in a while.
5 - Thanks, I think my collection is pretty neat too, if not very unique.
6 - I play well with children, because they are easier to relate to...err ummm wait a minute. You tricked me into that one.
7 - BBQ RULES!!!
8 - I may be more addicted to thrifting than you, but only because I have more time to go than you do, but you are still the thrifting king with that last haul of games cramped into your trunk. You should've brought the mini van.
9 - Kyle Busch angry
10 - This is America. It's called football, but I don't really understand people's obsession with that either.
11 - I may never talk her into gaming, but I will surely have fun trying.
12 - Who you kidding. I enjoy Ameritrash games also. Otherwise I wouldn't come over every week.
13 - No, I'm reading it laughing my ass off.

Ok, ok now I'll answer your questions.

1 - Depends on what I'm using it for. Paper kills trees and plastic is bad for the enviroment. Can't I just have a damn ceramic plate? How hard is it to wash one dish you lazy ass. laugh Oh, but please keep paper in the bathroom. Plastic could be harmful and difficult to flush.

2 - No time to repeat. I have to get back to gaming.

3 - Oh your a funny guy. You know I hate them both, but since your asking I'll go with Flux, as I know you hate it too.

4 - Worst game I've ever played is Monopoly. It's stupid and takes forever and has way to much paper money. Makes me just want to turn on a fan and watch it all blow across the room.

5 - You mean other than Flux or Arkham Horror? LOL, Hmmm...Had to take a look. I'll go with Acquire and Drakon, though I have to admit, that I was wondering WTH you were thinking, when you bought Hardy Boys Mystery Game, The: The Secret of Thunder Mountain. laugh Oh and none of these better be on the table, when I come over on Wednesday. shake

6 - Games in my collection, that you probably wouldn't play would be Brass, Dominant Species, Tigris $ Euphrates and Stuff your Face (I still can't believe you're afraid of clowns}. Too funny!

7 - Off the top of my head, I'd have to say Chunky Fighters, Car Tricks and Barbarian Prince.

8 - Mr. Green, with the rope, in the conservatory.

Many thanks, for the good laughs my friend. See ya Weds.

Thanks so much for stopping in. I really appreciate it. Lots of hoopy hugs.

Hey there Lee. Many thanks for stopping in and hope things are looking up for you and the family.

Alien abductions are fake. We aliens really don't exist. whistle

Well here's a good one for ya. When I first really started to get into fishing many years ago. I went trout fishing and caught a really nice sized one and brought it home, to throw on the grill. Cooked it up and served it and it was horrible. I mean really horrible. Well it turned out, that my huge trout wasn't a trout afterall and was really a large mouth bass. laugh

That would be awesome. What kind of fruit trees do you have. I currently am stocked up on Apple, Hickory, Mesquite and Cherry, though I would love to try some peach and I hear pecan is good too.

Congrats, Bill. I endorse your nomination. laugh

Three questions:

What's your favorite game that you haven't played yet? (You may reread this question, but I did type it correctly)


What game do you own that you're dying to get to the table?


Sweet or savory snack foods?

Have a hoopy week.
