  1. That was a strange one all right. Judging by the twitter coverage, we've been playing quite well and, if anything, been most guilty of not taking good chances. Nevermind, the odd heavy loss is better than a string of draws. I imagine Wrexham were fired up by the drubbing we gave them last year at the Lane - in the middle of our "Brazil" patch. I've just obtained my ticket for Saturday's match v Solihull. The club have hit on the idea of temporarily adjusting the ticket price to £999 to enable season ticket holders to use individual codes to obtain their tickets before the noon
  2. I'm dividing my time between my massive business empire on the mainland and Fortune Island which I bought (together with the lego one) when they were on offer recently. Fortune Island is brilliant and a good way to accumulate cash for the Castle purchase (I could sell cars I suppose but can't be bothered). It also seems popular with the boy racers, or maybe it's just more densely populated since a lot smaller. Thankfully only one star is needed in the drift challenge for the second treasure chest - even with a wet surface and a decent tune, I find it hard to get spectacular drifts (except wh
  3. I've got all 3 West Kingdom games. Owing to Etherfields, I haven't yet gotten around to Viscounts. The first two have excellent solo modes - simple, yet you feel you don't miss anything of the experience - just hoping the third follows suit.
  4. No doubt that this is one uncommonly beautiful game. All I'm doing is travelling between high points, ransacking a few monasteries along the way and beating everyone at Orlog. Climbed the white cliffs, saw day beak over the Weald (is this the famous ray tracing in action? ), gorgeous. Between this and FH 4 .....
  5. Impressions of Etherfields after a good session over the weekend - hopefully there are a lot of twists and turns to be revealed, but I feel the basic gameplay loop has been grocked. Fortunately there is a good tutorial dream which helps enormously - absolutely everything in this is card or tile driven, and basic instruction cards are gated behind this tutorial. The photo of the opened box illustrates the content - all the cards and the tiles before the first dividers are secret. The miniatures are extremely detailed and add to the atmosphere for sure. You will be selecting one or more
  6. I've just been emailed to say Etherfields late pledges are open. I'll post my full impressions inthe playing thread shortly, but suffice to say here, two dreams down, it's extremely enjoyable and intriguing, ideal for 1 or 2 players. It reminds me a little of This War of Mine - the clever use of cards in that to tell a story, and getting multiple uses from decks, and of 7th Continent in terms of growing a map which you need to pay close attention to (and also in maintaining a filing cabinet's worth of card and tile decks), and finallty to good legacy games where you add cards to all you
  7. Like a sort of semi-circular corrugated iron air raid shelter. The train yard is hot.....
  8. They are real on the map (if on line of course (drivataars in SP races ).
  9. I completely forgot that Thursday is the day when it's out with the snow tyres and on with the speed. Mind you, I ended the session tooling about in a 1931 Bentley, as you do.
  10. Truly a case of what goes around comes around in terms of male hairstyles and body decoration.
  11. Either drone, or drive round the area in circles starting from the circumference and working in (mark your start point).
  12. Excellent post @Pob. I would add drive cross country to every destination wherever possible, although if you are starting out you will want to get all the roads driven down achievement . I like the businesses and themed challenges, but frequently on route a skills song comes along and I'm going crazy doing slides and kangaroos all over, then you find you've just missed out on a new star on a.speed trap and spend some time there, then there is a Forzathon announced nearby and you hare off to that. I'm sure they must have reset the photo challenge in my absence. Probably never bough
  13. I see, thanks. Will probably take a while to get out of the habit of religiously quitting everything before shutdown .
  14. How can quick resume work if you turn the console off?
  15. Come for the consoles, stay for the cats and dogs (special shout out for the Xbox branded black cats of the forum). So many animal lovers here!
