Also maybe look in to Lincoln from PSC. Really liked this one but right now it's a bit of a mess with too much rules ambiguity. Hopefully a FAQ will fix. Mostly card based with a simple point to point board

Fort Sumter sounds ideal: - very simple - takes 20-40 minutes - describes slavery as a "national sin" - no spatial reasoning Its a good game, perhaps not a great one.

I find this comparison fascinating. Always wondered why, for example, there's no significant anti-science sentiment in Judaism

What really fucks me off is that I don't mind paying £6 tax that the government can use for useful stuff. I do mind paying twice that for a hugely profitable company can send me an auto-generated letter 😡

Will check out that brand, thanks. I've not seen anything like that in Asian markets here.

BBC lost what spine it had after it - unfairly- lost the battle over it's David Kelly coverage. All downhill from there

This is about a great serious defense game on that topic, a "matrix game" from MODUK's Tom Mouat: also mentioned briefly here: available here:

After being vegetarian for 25 years I find the idea of meat pretty vile, but for some reason I have a sudden, massive craving for Chinese style pork.

Super tight end to this game of 1066. Thought I was going to take it as the Saxons but a last minute Norman play edged it for them. Archers featured heavily.

I will. But first I have to go through the whole damn lot & find out the ones for epic ships & custom bomb tokens that aren't replaced in the upgrade kit :(
