  1. Haba have released some good family games to complement their range of games for very small children. Karuba is excellent, Honga is fun with some nice bright artwork and both are quite quick to play. Other quick family games that have worked well for us over the years are Cartagena and Pickomino. Cartagena Honga Karuba Pickomino @Stejay's idea of Forbidden Island is a great idea.
  2. Oh. I've watched Quackerlope on occasion. What is it that's put you off them?
  3. £5 for any game in the first picture. £10 for any game in the second. Then for the next picture £15, then £20 and £25 for the complete Small World collection which includes other expansions in the box. Postage would be extra starting from £3 under 2kg using Royal Mail. For over 2Kg I'll use Hermes.
  4. My copy of The Split also turned up today. Had a look through the cards and rules and looking forward to playing the game soon. One rules query, am I right in thinking that apart from the initial setup players only get cheat cards if they get a 5 card hand with 21 or under?
  5. I tend to think that those of us who use emulators are also the same people who buy the remastered collections, anniversary collections etc as we are the most enthusiastic players of old games. There are some games that I've bought multiple times over the years on different systems, including recent compilation releases, and will still also download and play them on other hardware using an emulator. I believe that those who download "illegally" are often paying back into their hobby more than most through other channels. I've seen this applied to music and film and I'm sure it applies in this instance as well.
  6. I have that box set as well. It's got a decent amount of the DJ chat between tracks but I don't remember it having any adverts which is a shame.
  7. I was a bit late getting round to buying the N64 controllers and now they've been out of stock for the last few weeks. I remember this happening with the SNES controllers on release. I'm hoping these come back in stock quickly.
  8. I meant the Everdrives but didn't realise you'd bought them in the UK.
  9. Did you get stung for charges when the parcels came into the country?
  10. Change the title of this thread and it is an official Battletech thread.
  11. Only you can decide if its worth it for you. I was pleased to get my 64 recapped and refurbed and the fact that I can now use it again, rather than it sitting in its bag under the bed, made it worth it for me. Paired with an everdrive it's the perfect N64 for my needs.
  12. If the PS and Saturn cores materialise then that's it, the Mister is doing everything that I could want. Amazing times.
  13. I got it done by Console Refresh, (search console refresh ebay) the guy running it seems to be a real enthusiast and very genuine. He's emailed me images of the work done and the turn around has been about 4 days from me sending the console in. I've bought a pre-modded JP console for myself (which they sourced) and then had my own console modded which will end up being a present for my daughter as it's her childhood console. This was expensive. A real extravagance. The costs for the modification to my own console were: N64Digital kit - £205 N64Digital install - £85 Re-cap and new voltage regulator - £38 Laser Bear PixelFX logo AV port -£26 Total £354 Obviously it was a bit more when an extra console was added in as well. The PixelFx mod was in short supply and I've had to wait for the second run of the mods. I don't know if they have any left at the moment. I'll post back when I've got the console plugged in and had a blast through some classics.
  14. I've got an N64 JP model on the way fitted with the new PixelFx Mod which means my N64 will have an HDMI output. I'm very excited to see what it is like and it's arriving tomorrow. I have the day off so I'm going to have a busy day revisiting some old favourites.
  15. I like it but my retro budget is about to be used up on getting my N64 modded with the PixelFX HDMI mod and my current Mister setup works fine so it would be really extravagant. I still nearly ordered one.
  16. It's the Cruise'n' game that came out recently. I like an arcade racer but have yet to buy either of these yet.
  17. @Herbalizer Only as long as you're both happy and confident with role playing games. I bought FoL on the back of that review and it didn't work for us. I thought it was barely a game and my partner actively hated it. Neither of us play RPGs at all and found the mechanisms of the game to be completely alien to us. We knew what the game wanted us to do but were both very much non-plussed and couldn't find the fun. I'm not sure we even finished one game it was so under-whelming. It may work for you but I felt SUSD were so enamoured by the originality on show that they forgot to look for an actual game.
  18. @Stejay Did you ever find Cottage Garden? I'm away from home for a few days but am fairly sure I still have a copy of Cottage Garden in my sell pile if you're still interested.
  19. Thanks for the nudge. I messed around with vpinball and pinmame years ago before things like Pinball Arcade and Zen Pinball were around. I haven't bothered trying in recent years but I have a pc that can handle anything these days so will follow up those links and try and get it working. I love some Addamms Family and Scared Stiff.
  20. I have also backed it. Good luck.
  21. It is. Would you like it?
  22. I do. Would you like it?
  23. What!! It never occurred to me that could happen. I need to go check something.
  24. I thought 5 Guys was massively over-rated when I last tried them a few years ago, I give them a wide berth now. Local to us we have Meat Stack and Smash Burger in town and both of those are vastly superior to 5 Guys or any other chain.
  25. Big sale post. I've tried to set the prices reasonably but am open to offers. Postage will be £3 for the first item, £2 for the second and £1 for each thereafter to a maximum of £8. I've divided the games into categories although some might fit into several. Days of Wonder, Larger boxes, 2 Player games, Smaller boxes and solo. Message me if you have any queries or would like any photos. Postage will be Royal Mail under 2kg but probably Hermes/DPD if heavier than that. Pick up from Newcastle would be possible if anyone is local. Some people have already expressed interest in certain items so will get first dibs on those. I'll look to move things over on to the FB groups at the weekend. Days Of Wonder: Pirate's Cove - £25 Great condition. Cargo Noir - £25 Unplayed. Small World + Be Not Afraid + Cursed! + Grand Dames + Necromancer Island + Leaders + Tales and Legends + small hardback rulebook - £50 Cleopatra and the Society of Architects - £25 Box has a small rip in the base of the box. Great condition otherwise. Large Games: SOLD Dominations + Silk Road + Provinces + Hegemon + Dynasties + Rise and Fall + Deluxe slipcase. Deluxe Kickstarter - £75 Rise and Fall and the Slipcase are from the 2nd KS which has not fulfilled yet. I like the game and ordered it, Fay is not so keen so we're not playing it.
