Who has to dream, I'll ship you a couple of buckets of your dreams in return for a game or two?

This concept is far more foreign to me than a white Christmas!

Plenty of snow here. The roads still sucked four days after the snow we got last week.

Current forecast: 80% chance of snow tonight and 100% chance of snow on Christmas Day for the Pacific Northwest (more specifically, Tacoma, Washington).

All I'm seeing right now is intermittent rain and that's all we've been seeing for almost 1 solid month now. I'll believe the forecast for the white stuff only when I actually see it falling. Starting up a game of either Smallworld or Talisman with my kids right now so I'll be up for a while with one eye on the weather!

Pure white sand at the beech on a warm sunny day. Perfect.

The snow started about 2 hours ago - first real snow of the year in this part of PA. Merry Christmas all!

Come on over.

We've got .. I don't know, 20-25 cm of snow?

http://www.yr.no/sted/Sverige/%C3%96rebro/%C3%96rebro/

If that isn't enough go to Kiruna:
http://www.yr.no/sted/Sverige/Norrbotten/Kiruna/

This is nearby:
http://www.storstenshojden.se/ (About 15 km away)
50 cm of snow off-pist, 100cm on.

7th December cross-country track at the same place (and we aren't even much north):


Guess I should go up there considering how much snow we have and for how long it has been around (a month.)

Inside the actual city:

Christmas in a warm country must be weird.

Also from/in this city earlier in December:

Rather weird. A student girl here (well, rather Uppsala) from Costa Rica isn't too impressed with Sweden it seems. She hate the fruit, darkness and cold. Snow seems ok it seems

Agreed David, I would be gaming any time.

Right now on the Kapiti Coast near Wellington it is over 30C and humid as heck. I would play a game but alas I am all by myself as the family has travelled to San Francisco.

I'm unaware of any games (on a family friendly) site that involve sweating as part of the victory conditions

For us it's been too harsh to spend a long time out in the sun, so once we're all glowing pink it's inside for boardgames!

Yes, I certainly miss it. This has been my 13th Chirstmas in New Zealand, moved here from Atlantic Canada in August of 2000. It's still wierd. It will always be wierd. cry

One thing New Zealand is missing? Noticeable seasons.

Part of the year it is a bit warmer than the norm. Part of the year it is a bit colder than the norm and rains a bit more. Those really aren't seasons. No chrisp autumn / fall days with lovely orange, yellow and red covered trees. No sharp, clear, snow covered winter days. No sweat-til-ya-pass-out summer days either. That time of year when you have to sleep in your jockies on your bed, not under it, to keep from getting heatstroke during night. shake We need seasons down here! *thumps fist on the table*

Glad that two year period of shakeness is behind us though. That was a never ending, shitty season! yuk

It mostly is, except most days you dont know to wear shorts or a heavy jacket since the weather is rather unpredictable.

Much of the scenery in LOTR and The Hobbit is as it appears as well.
(Well, except the part about mount doom and mordor)

*mumble mumble* price of boardgames *mumble mumble* Though Dave from Seriouslyboard above is working on that problem.
