"Keep Summer Safe!"
mbmbmbmbmb
First of all, a big mea culpa. I was pretty negative about the BGG mobile page when it came out, but its actually grown on me. Meanwhile, the best airline in the world (Southwest) continues to have a terrible, terrible application! It forgets my logon, when I say "Check in," it asks me for a flight number. How about "Check in to my next flight, the only flight I have booked with you"

But its really the only thing bad about the airline.

I flew out Friday (less stressful, and hey -- another day off work is fine with me) and got to the airport a bit early to read. At some point my name was called and I was offered the following deal.

"We'll get you to Niagara 10 minutes later on a different flight for a travel voucher worth $100 + the value of today's trip."

Done and done. I arrived in Niagara ten minutes after my scheduled arrival, but much wealthier. Also, nothing about the experience went viral.

Many many people were delayed over the weekend because of the weather in Atlanta. That's just bad luck -- bad weather can happen anywhere -- so I was fortunate I didn't have to suddenly hitch a ride for 14 hours (like some other attendees did).

There's a decent chance I had the best inbound airline experience of any attendee. Much improved from last year, when the wife got stuck overnight in BUF on her way back....

(Revealed 11/04)

Die Spieler führen Luftfahrtgesellschaften, die sich am hart umkämpften US-amerikanischen Markt behaupten müssen. Die Einnahmen sind in einem gewissen Maße zufällig, so dass eine Diversifizierung über die großen Hubs wichtig ist. Gleichzeitig unterstütz aber regionale Stärke lokale Preiskriege um Marktanteile. Am Ende gewinnt, wer in Summe aus Barvermögen und Marktanteil zuerst das vorgegebene Ziel erreicht.

This one is easy since I am the GM. We ran 4 heats, a semi, and a final. I got to play 5 games (4 heats and a semi) with some fun tables. I was able to play a demo table to hopefully teach some new players how to play and some strategy, although I'm not sure listening to MY strategy is a good thing.

I made the semis (which I didn't last year) so that was good. One of my good Air Baron buddies Ed won my semi table, but chose to opt out of the final to play another game. At first I was surprised, but then I sat and thought about what he did. I saw him the next day and really wish I remembered to tell him what my thoughts were. I think his decision was truly awesome. When I asked him why he was dropping out of the final, he said it was to play Britannia, which was his #1 game. In my thoughts, I came to the realization that he chose to play his favorite game instead of going after a trophy. Maybe it's because I generally don't win too many plaques, but I honestly think not winning a game I had a lot of fun in isn't the most awful thing if the game is a favorite.

Back to me, I had some awful runs in fare wars - truly. I mean, 3 consecutive losses with snake eyes awful.

John Coussis won the event. He's a very good player, but you probably already knew that.

Perhaps this really isn't in my Top 20 outside of 200. Maybe my contrarian nature wants me to reach for a game that's outside the Top 2000, instead of listing a barely missed it classic like Up Front. But here's the thing -- I've played this more. Not to say that I don't like Up Front, but that when I want to play it I have to remember how, and then find a like minded person, and then ... well, its a bit like work.

Useful work. Gainfully employable work. But a little bit like work.

Whereas I can just set this up and play it. And I've done so. A pretty good monopoly replacement game for the (not quite so young) kids, too.

As is typical for my travel days, I didn't sleep well before I went and so I was awake well before my alarm went off at 4.45 am for the trip to the airport. The trip was (blessedly) uneventful, although I spent some time wandering around BWI (which I went to frequently around 1990).

Is it just me, or does the main concourse for BWI right now look like the main concourse for Reagan circa 2000? (Yellow signs with black lettering, a long curved window looking out over the runway).

I also discovered that the Southwest Airlines app is terrible, as it forgot my logon saturday morning and asked me for my password again. Why does an App need that? It's on my phone. Just remember it.

But all in all, an easy trip made easier because my room-mate (Lou) arrived in Buffalo at the exact same time (within 5 minutes). This means that the last 30 minutes of travel could be spent productively catching up.
