  1. So the main thing everybody mentions when talking about the game is the thing they then get rid of? Makes sense.
  2. I love the precision of the design, though.
  3. It does look cool, but I think it would benefit from staining the pieces with the relevant colours.
  4. Replied to you via PM - Chinatown already gone to @frumious. Splendor has the heavy chips - I didn’t know there was a version without them. It’s already gone, though.
  5. Having a minor clear out, and will be putting these in the Trading folder shortly (thought I'd give first dibs here). All prices are including postage. Lords of Xidit: Shrinkwrap removed, but contents unpunched and unused. £15 Union Pacific: Dutch edition, but language-independent, and English rules are included. Box bottom has some minor damage. £15 Android Netrunner: First edition. Box has some shelf wear but game contents are in very good condition. £15 Settlers of Catan: Mayfair Games. Think it might be the first English edition. Box has shelf wear but contents are in very good condition. £15 Ticket To Ride: Europe: Excellent condition. £20 @keptbybees Chinatown: German version (Filosofia), but language-independent, and English rules included. Very good condition. £25 @frumious Splendor: Box split on one edge, repaired with Magic Tape. Contents in very good condition. £12 @keptbybees Beer Empire: Excellent condition: £15 The New Science: Shrinkwrap removed, but unplayed. £15
  6. Backed – looking forward to playing it.
  7. If it were Hastings, why would WPC Stabby have been doing her job so well in presenting the evidence against him? Also, in Dot's dying declaration, Kate starts doing the second letter of the name (after Dot has indicated 'H', and goes past 'A' without any reaction from Dot.
  8. Parts of it were good, but a lot of it was underwhelming.
  9. Disappointing, for the most part. The interview scene (where the series has excelled in the past) was far too long, and lacked any sort of drama or tension. The morse code “four dots” thing was ridiculous.
  10. I’m interested in Mombasa and Ponzi Scheme.
  11. There was a pretty good interview with director on the Red Handed podcast this week.
  12. Second series doesn’t start until 21 June - you’d only need to watch one or two a week.
  13. Sod that – I'm going to watch the whole thing again.
  14. I’m still enjoying it, but it’s definitely on the wane from its series 3 high point.
  15. Gives me an excuse to watch series 1 again.
  16. I thought this thread was going to be about the 70s invisible man series starring Ben Murphy, so I’m somewhat disappointed.
  17. We failed both attempts at May. It was a while ago, and for one reason and another, we haven't managed to get our regular participants back together to tackle June. Hopefully should manage to in the next few weeks. Looks like tons of stuff gets added at the beginning of June, so I'm looking forward to it.
  18. Definately. Edit: Damn you, bingoinferno.
  19. It can depend on which of the minigames you play; some are much better than others. We've had some great times playing Fibbage, which is simply an online version of Balderdash. A lot of the others are somewhat forgettable.
  20. How can you tell if you've got a counterfeit copy of Terraforming Mars? I'll get me coat.
  21. They should make the recessed player boards available separately at retail. The game should have included them in the first place.
  22. James Ernest has compiled all of the Cheapass games into one mammoth book: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cheapassgames/cheapass-games-in-black-and-white?ref=discovery&term=cheapass I’d have quite liked the hardback, but couldn’t really justify the cost, so I’ve gone for the e-book version.
