One last tour here on the Death Star and I can retire. What was that noise?!
mbmbmbmbmb

Description: I have two boards and willing to let one go, as I recall (I could be wrong it was a long time ago) this was suppose to be an irregular board, the only thing I see (Check Pics) where the image is applied there seems to be a raised area at the edge, I'm really not feeling it though and anyone who's played Crokinole knows the very edge you won't be shooting from. The other issues with this board Mayday installed some eye screws and one was installed poorly and pulled out. The eye screws are on the back and doesn't effect anything, see images. My other board I removed the light coat of wax and added more clear coat, about 12 thin layers and then waxed again. My board, not this one is super fast, it was also suppose to be an irregular and I have no issues. This include a set of discs for two player games, if you win this you agree to FedEx packing the board and shipping, that's the safest way to get it to you, if you want more pics of different angles or if you have questions let me know, I want to make sure who ever wins is happy. I've never played on this board like I said never got around to adding additional coats to the finish

Condition: great

Starting bid: $50










Informational only: "NOT INCLUDED"
I ran across a clock for the Crokinole board, I was browsing the overstock at FRP Games, seems like a great value for whoever wins this board, the clock is a Mayday Games product Here's the information:

[url]http://www.frpgames.com/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=89267#.W...
[/url]
The face is a thin plastic piece, the foam is about 3/4th inch thick, in the picks you'll see the holes in the back of the piece, they line up with the posts on the front of the board.

One of several games I played with the college kids before moving to France. It was our last game night for a long while, and we played a few games. This traditional game was the hands-down favorite of the night. The very definition of a classic.

I've got one of the old M.B. Ross boards that's has a 1880 patent mark on it, so I assume that it was manufactured within 17 years of the patent being granted, while the patent was still being enforced. These are the oldest known US boards.
(source: http://www.tradgames.org.uk/games/Squails-Crokinole.htm)

That puts my personal board at 120 years old or older, while the game design is around 140 years old. I probably should treat it with more respect, it just sits in a corner when not in use. The felt is pretty beat up, and has at least 1 mark from a cigarette in it. I like to imagine that it was in an old saloon somewhere.

I still use it regularly. I got over 20 plays on it this year.

Unique titles I've played in 2016
badge
mbmbmbmbmb
_8_ Above and Below - 2 Players
_8_ Dominion - 2 Players
_8_ Crokinole - 2 Players

With the kids...
_6_ The Big Book of Madness - 2 Players
_6_ Monza - 2 Players (x3)
_6_ Tumblin-Dice - 2 Players (x6)


(1) Above and Below - We like this game. It works as a Euro with a nice story-telling and choice element.

(2) Dominion - I picked up the update packs for original and intrigue. I'm not a total completionist, but these looked useful and I made a completionlist-like purchase.

(3) The Big Book of Madness - We took a big butt-kicking this time through on intermediate level. Good thing Dane talked me into intermediate before we started because I wanted to go expert. We'd won intermediate last time so I figured we were ready for the next step. Apparently, we aren't ready for that yet.

(4) Monza - Dane took 2 out of 3.

(5) Tumblin' Dice - Dane and I split 6 games, 3-3.

Caution: May contain wargame like substance
mbmbmbmbmb
This is the week that was:


 7   Crokinole x2
On Monday I was giving a lift to two of my fellow RPG crew and while we were waiting for our third, Harv suggested a quick round of Crokinole, which we played on my $12.31 set. I need a better set of discs as the Lee Valley ones aren't really evenly round, and some talcum powder to make the play better, but I haven't played this enough nor improved enough to invest in a better board. Besides which, Harv is from the prairies and played a lot of crok as a kid and is a real shark.

 8   Grand Prix TNC
I was requested to bring this and I willingly obliged. I like the game (see rating), but the conditional linking slowed play down in a way led to some AP, which kind of put a damper on the pace. However, the NPC cars are awesome. Three laps was long enough to make the race interesting. The tire swap requirement is a good one. I wish there were more events. Still, thumbsup

More play required.

 8   Deep Sea Adventure TNC
This was also requested. You know, sometimes you look at the price tag for a game and you hesitate because you think it's a lot for what you get, but if I go on a $/play basis, this one's been worth every penny.

Consider too that I introduced it to the group almost a year ago and they still ask for it. Regularly.

 4   Hey, That's My Fish! x2 ww
My wife and I dusted this one off (last played in June 2010) and played back to back games at the pub. She won the first game 47-42 and I won the second 47-42. A strange symmetry!

I liked it better than I remembered it. I still find the setup annoyingly long, despite it likely not being any longer than setting up something like The Castles of Burgundy.

Perception != Reality in this case.

It may or may not make into the Friday rotation.

 7   Dominant Species: The Card Game ww
My wife requested this one, and remembered why we don't play it very often - it's a fun game, but it kinda falls flat with two.

I still feel that it was a mistake to tie this game, thematically speaking, to Dominant Species. It compares unfavourably for one, and for two, it's actually a neat little card game with six suits and six elements making a neat little VP race.

 7   The Castles of Burgundy ww
The dice gods were with me and I had a really stupendous 2p score. Thankfully my wife still loves the game.

 7   Mysterium wf
My daughter requested this tonight. How could I say no?

What's going on:
Canadian Thanksgiving is this Monday, so it's a long weekend here. I started a new schedule at work where I work an extra half an hour a day and get every 4th Thursday off. This past Thursday was supposed to be my first one, but since I was facilitating a workshop, it slid to the next day which was Friday, meaning I'm having a nice little break. Tomorrow (Sunday) we're visiting my parents for a non-turkey lunch and Monday we're going out to some friends for a turkey with all the trimmings feast.

Speaking of work it looks like I'm being sent out of town for training the week of Halloween. It's only four days, so I'll be back just in time for BottosCon. That's if I go. I should know for sure this week.

BottosCon and BGG Con are coming up quicker than I think. I'm still overbooked, but not committing to anything else. And if past experience is anything to go by, some plans will change at the last minute and I'll also get to have some new and fun experiences.

Christmas is coming in 77 days. I know that seems like an eternity away, but between training and two gaming conventions and then a convention the last week of November... I'm not sure if I'll be coming or going after November comes and goes.

James Lee Burke is an author a friend and former work colleague put me on to about a year ago and I've read a lot of his books in the interim. He has a lyrical use of language that's simply captivating and charming, and his characters are all flawed and very human. His main body of work is a series of books about a policeman named Dave Robichaux and his partner Clete Purcell, and they're set in Bayou Teche in the deep south. Riveting stuff. I'm about a third of the way through Whites Doves at Morning, which is a historical novel set during the civil war featuring some of his own ancestors as characters.
