  1. Bad Sisters is another show we've enjoyed. You should give Joel Coens The Tragedy of Macbeth a watch as well, it's visually stunning.
  2. I think the answer is yes but if you've raised more money then you have more orders to fulfill so its not all profit. It also means you have to have your pricing right or the more money you raise the more money you could lose.
  3. Just noticed that Licorice Pizza has turned up free for Prime subscribers. I'm looking forward to watching it very soon.
  4. Oh my!! I really want a set of both of those, the skulls if I had to choose, as they both look beautiful.
  5. Most of those pictured are gone now. I have posted out games in the past and might do again although it won't be for a while as we're pretty busy the next 3-4 weeks.
  6. Maybe we're being too cautious after having some pizzas stuck to the peel.
  7. I need some pizza advice. We've got a good dough recipe and are making some good pizzas but have one slight problem. The flour/semolina mixture that we use to dust the dough ball before stretching and to stop the pizza sticking to the peel will burn on the oven floor when the pizza goes in. We've got a perforated peel which is meant to allow this flour to fall away from the pizza base but we often end up with a blackened base even though the pizza is not burnt. We also get burnt flour on the oven floor which needs brushing away between pizzas or it'll burst into flames. Anybody have any idea what's going wrong? What do you use to dust the dough balls or your worktop/peel?
  8. oh my, Power Drift! Don't tease me.
  9. Very excited. I'll be buying that day one.
  10. I think that was Pure. Was that Blackrock games? It was good fun anyway.
  11. I have a great fondness for Excite Truck. I want to play it again now.
  12. And that argument has been going on for 50 years in the USA rather than just popping into existence in the last 4 years.
  13. You don't have to win every game. In fact you definitely won't and that's fine. Just enjoy it the game will balance things for you.
  14. I think it would be fine with 2 but may make it rather easy in some instances as it's easier for you to gather cards into sets to make the cures. Conversely it could make it harder at times as you won't be able to spread out across the map as easily. We played it at 3 but used 4 characters. We treated the extra character as one we all shared and left the hand face up on the table so we could plan more easily. That was the one we would swap out for a different role at times as we all became attached to our own characters as the game went on and we wanted to keep playing our "own" person. You could consider adding in an extra character to your game. I think it gives you more flexibility without the added pressure of running 2 sets of cards each.
  15. Jones' book is currently 99p on Kindle. I would assume that's just for one day as these 99p deals normally are.
  16. I'm sorry to butt in on this thread as I've never posted here before but couldn't this racist incident have been a challenge to the team to work around? Who gives in to the racism or supports it? Who disagrees with it but tolerates it and who fights against it? How do the group get around this issue? Can they get the party member into the town another way? I've never really played an rpg, I just enjoy reading the rule books, so don't have practical experience of this and could be completely wrong.
  17. I've played a few games with TaR and he's not only quite quick but scarily good. He ran rings around me at Teotihuacan.
  18. Ark Nova appears to be an extreme example of hype and scarcity pushing a game into a must have. I've only seen one negative review so far, which was on No pun included, with the vast majority of reviewers raving over it. I managed to resist as the theme didn't grab me.
  19. @p1nseeker What about Honshu? I'm feeling confident it's this one. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/207336/honshu
  20. I've put a post in the Newcastle upon Tyne Meet Up thread about a possible game day this year. If you'd like to come to Newcastle and play a load of boardgames for a day then let me know. To begin with just looking to see how much interest there is and try and find some suitable dates.
  21. I'm going to have to brave it. I've got 5 bags of stuff totalling almost £400.
  22. It seems to behave fine on my Philips TV.
  23. I might wear my old Delorean forum t-shirt one of the days. It's never been out in a place where someone might actually recognise it.
