  1. Played Villagers this weekend. A lovely tableau builder, very clean rules and art I thought. Would definitely play again.
  2. Could I have a price for Res Arcana and/or Menara please. (Though I'll have to check my recent spending before I commit). And I have to say, there are some good ones in that collection (that I already have). I doubt anyone would regret owning/playing any of these: (though mileage may vary of course). Fugitive - if you like abstract two player things, with a very slight theme (but art that is so beautiful you forgive it) Hour Of Glory - old, but great, WW2 action point game with a really interesting 'time' mechanic. Star Realms - great Deck Building Epic T
  3. If no-one has taken Chicago 1875, can I take that too? If you give me a total price for that one, 1066 and an Artefact solo RPG and postage then I'l paypal it across. Thanks.
  4. I'm sure that the previous dibbers won't fall through, but if they do I'll definitely take 1066.
  5. I've just watched and enjoyed this. The film has a sense of it just being made by people enjoying themselves which is quite infectious - the cast are having fun, and you the viewer are along for the ride. I briefly thought it was going to be a horrible cameo-a-thon when Dave Grohl turned up. But it wasn't that at all. (Apart from Kid Cudi I suppose). The actual "twist" in the plot is completely obvious from the outset - but the time hopping shenanigans are fun and the various versions of B&T do make you smile (and imagine what a laugh Keanu and Alex are having). It's an old
  6. Machines Like Me - Ian McEwan Set in an alternate 1980s where Alan Turin was still alive - and the UK lost in the Falklands conflict - this is an interesting book in which the first realistic humanoid 'domestic help' robots have gone onto the market. 'Adam' is purchased by Charlie and the book asks the reader to think about the ethics of A.I., the nature of ownership, love, relationships and robot self awareness. And knowingly nod as you spot differences in the history you know about England in the 80s. Arguably this might be slightly too much to have to cope with in one story - but it
  7. Can I just say that I found our one-shot session, that @Doctor Shark ran, far superior to either of the UKGamesExpo online organised play sessions I attended. (Both were also CoC 7e - one in the 1920s, the other SciFi). It's not that either of the UKGamesExpo sessions were necessarily bad, just the first one suffered a little with the Keeper being a bit too eager to show off what he could do (I thought) rather than letting the players role-play and the second one not wasn't even close to finishing within the 4 hour window and had a couple of players who were seemed intent on game-ifying every
  8. Definitely! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and would certainly like to be involved again.
  9. I too found it a bit hard to 'do' Wendy 'no nonsense' Kelly from the start (aside of her personal motivation to spring her brother!). I think as she got the chance to use her trusty .12 gauge shotgun we got to see more of how she operates. Definitely lack-of/ropey-accent on my part though (sorry).
  10. Great Keeper-ing last night by @Doctor Shark - with an obvious huge amount of (very worthwhile) prep - so thanks enormously for that. Really well done. (The effort in assembling the photos and bloody-creepy music alone must have been substantial). It was a really interesting scenario that didn't feel railroaded, had a suitably climactic ending and was genuinely unsettling with gibbering-mess inducing insanity. So pretty much the perfect Cthulhu one-shot! Some fun characters emerged too. @Lying Cat's Marty was a particular source of light relief and stupidity in the face of dan
  11. It's a very specific recommendation, but I've been super happy purchasing direct from Chaosium (buying various Call Of Cthulhu rpg books). Their customer service and email support is excellent, and I think their policy of "buy the pdf, get the full price of the pdf off if you buy it in physical form when it's released" is excellent. (Meaning any typos etc are caught and corrected in pdf before it goes to print). Physical copies also come with pdf copy if bought from them. I'll also second Gameslore as being excellent.
  12. I *did* have an issue with an order I placed from BGE (some years ago now). It was a nothing arriving and no reply to my emails, a search of facebook found other people in the same situation. However I'd *never* had an issue when I'd previously bought from them via their eBay shop - which I'd done regularly. It took public calling out on Facebook and Twitter to finally get a "we're having stock problems" reply, and an eventual fulfilment of the order a long time later. I don't use them any more because of that.
  13. I probably would be up for some Call Of Cthulhu. Am playing a bit at the moment via zoom (probably monthly).
  14. I was looking through a bgg forum about best/worst artwork on games (boxes), and half of the suggestions I couldn't tell without reading whether it was going to be a suggestion for best or worst. Sometimes people were arguing for the same art as best as others were for it being worst. Clearly it is very subjective.
  15. Beautiful looking, and good luck. I'm sure this would have had good UKGE table presence as that's a hell of a looker! And by the way - "Die of the Dead" is a great name!
