Secret Santa 2015:
Thank Ziggy for me.
I'm on full sleigh alert. Both my kids are staying awake until they hear sleigh bells ring!
Thanks for your message. We have been really lucky and the water didn't get in (our house has a couple of steps that kept the water out). We've been helping our neighbours by doing washing and food - it's not much, but it helps a little, hopefully.
The road is now open and normal sleigh service can resume.
Does your sleigh float?
PS, please don't bring Forbidden Island or Escape from Atlantis!
I enjoyed that very much, thank you! I did make a bit of a mess opening boxes looking for number 5 - I knew I'd seen it in one of my games. I dug out Talisman first, and then picked a few random things from my shelf before I came back and looked at the picture. Hmmm, the art style reminds me of... yup, KoT!
What a cool quiz! I'll have a quick go now, but there's a couple I'll need to research
1. 3 coins from 7 Wonders
2. Joker from Augustus
3. Extra dwarf from Caverna
4. Gold from Imperial Settlers
5. Not sure... Edit - Aha! A quick box check reveals.... King of Toyko!
6. Character shield from Mage Knight
. Is it Goldyx?
7. Clearly Monopoly, but which one
? Edit - I think (hope) it's Monopoly City!
8. 10 VPs from Race/Roll for the Galaxy
9. Character token for (currently gender swapped) Scheherazade from Tales of the Arabian Nights
10. An elite piece from the Everfrost expansion
to Tash Kalar
Now, 5 and 7.....
Thanks for your message, although I was quite concerned when I started reading. I'm glad you sorted the computer in the end.
I've always liked exams, so I look forward with baited breath to your next message.
I hope you're as excited about Secret Santa 2015 as I am!
Let me tell you a bit about me and my gaming habits...
I am a school teacher (I teach 4 and 5 year-olds
) and a dad. My kids are 4 and 2 and take up most of my free time. My youngest, Oscar, has his birthday on the 25th December, so Christmas is doubly exciting in my house.
I enjoy lots of different types of games and like to try new games whenever I can. I like stuff from serious all-day wargames (Empire of the Sun) through to short fun fillers (Coup/Spyfall). I tend to play either two or three player mostly, but I have recently started attending a gaming group in Kendal, so bigger games are now more of an option.
I have lots of games marked as 'Want in Trade', but feel free to ignore that if you look at my wish list - I probably won't be doing much trading in the run up to Christmas.
If my wish list is unhelpful, feel free to shout at me and I'll have a go at sorting it out!
Anyway, you know where I am if you need anything more
Merry Christmas!Recent plays:

[In no particular order] Stuff I'd really like to play (and own, of course!). I'm fickle so this list is in flux. Top 10:
[In no particular order] Current favourites from my collection. Again, I'm fickle, so favourites come and go. (Some of these games I may not have even played, or played very little, but I like that they're there on the shelf. If I had to run out of the house during a fire, these are the ones I send my kids back in for
