Re: Escape: The Curse of the Temple

Game update: We did play a 5-player version with the expansions included and this time we beat the game on the first try. Maybe that was luck. We'll probably get some 4- and 5-player sessions in over the Christmas break, and then I'll know for sure. [more]

Escape: The Curse of the Temple

I played a truckload or two of the cooperative Escape: TCotT game last weekend with my kids (ages 7 and 9) and at times with my wife too. We borrowed this game from our neighbors.

Great family game. Short and replayable. I love it. [more]

Re: recommend me something! (and my BGG collecti

Thanks again, everyone! Nice list. I like the research it's causing me to do.

Careers: A blast from the past! I remember playing this game as a kid. No time for nostalgia, though. Too many great, modern games to [more]

Is anyone still here? Time for a self-serving post, then... ;-)

The holiday period is every year's prime gaming season for me and my extended family. So much time to play. Please help me fill it with lots of great, new games!

Re: My Prediction!!!

I actually liked the Royals and their overall style of play. Their proclivity to swing at pitches clearly out of the strike zone is often common with younger players.

The Royals were 30th (last) in MLB at walks during the regular [more]

Baseball is a team sport, but...

That was one of the most dominant performances of all-time, against the most dominant team, and on the biggest stage.

Every so often performances like these come along that are worth remembering if [more]

The only thing I have any confidence predicting is that Marlins Man will have a prominent seat in the house for Game 7.

Re: Baumgarner

Harold Reynolds said it best: "Appreciate greatness."

It is interesting, though how that Game 5 performance could affect the rest of the series. The threat of Bumgarner's presence, even in relief, is now a weapon. Head games are [more]

Re: Bochy has been a great October manager, but....

Machi has done worse than Strickland in these playoffs.

So Bochi is even less than perfect. But I still am not going to nit pick one or two bad decisions when as a whole Bochi is boss.

Last night's performance makes 10 Game 1's in a row where the Giants' opposing starter has not even recorded a quality start.

Re: Poll: is the WS winner the best team in the

Interesting responses. Thanks, everyone. Yes, the title of "best team" will always be subjective. I just wanted to gauge how many people here consider the current MLB playoff format on its own to be a sufficient judge of this. And 7 of 10 [more]

Poll: is the WS winner the best team in the league?

OK, I thought I'd turn this rant into a poll. First, the (long!) rant...

This year the WS winner WILL NOT be the best team because both finalists are wildcards. Yes, this argument is valid to some degree. And I say this as a Giants [more]
