    Is it just me, or is the "paste deck" function currently broken?
  2. Depends on whether you have other people who are willing to sit round the table, I guess.
  3. I don't understand why anyone would want to play Dominion irl when the online version is so fantastic?
  4. Dominion app now in early access
  5. A few days away gave me a chance to break out the full set of "Let's Waltz!" expansions for Grand Austria Hotel . Daughter will take me to the cleaners as always...
  6. I did the original Kickstarter, but have only just got it off the shelf of shame. I certainly didn't pay close to the £40-odd it seems to be selling for now!
  7. Enjoyed our first Xmas play of Kabuto Sumo. Surprisingly thinky and quite beautiful dexterity game. Guess who won from this position?
  8. Just remembered my favourite moment when watching this. When Paul & Jessica come out of the tent, I thought "why do they look like they're wearing pyjamas?". The answer, of course, is because
  9. OK missing something here. No-one has an IMAX telly, right? So watching a movie in IMAX ratio means it has to be taller, so it will just letterbox at the sides and the final image will be smaller?
  10. Had a great time watching this today - daughter (16) has not read the book but is enough of a sci-fi geek to have really enjoyed this and be ready to go and read it with a pretty acceptable visualisation of the universe in her mind. This is not The Matrix, it's not going to appeal to non-geeks, but that's fine. I read a review that said it had "just enough humour" - I counted 2 jokes, only 1 of which was funny.

  11. You need to get some of these guys' albums.
  12. This stuff in spoilers above re the Baron - does anyone else remember what an amazing job the audio book does of the Baron's dialogue?
  13. There seem to be plenty of of other crummy films I can book at the weekend though, so I'm not optimistic.
  14. OK, daughter and I were all set to see this next weekend (6th Nov) as the wife is away. And now it appears it's only in cinemas until Thursday??? Since when did massively anticipated blockbuster movies only run for a fortnight in cinemas?
  15. V interested in Glasgow & Trambahn!
  16. Played and immediately purchased at UKGE
  17. OK, so we're all booked for 2 days of masked gaming fun. Bizarrely, we are always really annoyed at the NEC's £12-per-day parking fees, but when we booked for 2 days' parking it cost £14.40. And Mrs Padster gets to go to the quilting show on Sunday too
  18. Live show good to go this summer Tickets on sale this Friday...
  19. They're quite different really, I would say Patchwork is a more cutthroat contest, although you can still screw your opponent over in Bärenpark.
  20. New dates for Expo 2021 - might give it an outside chance of actually happening
  21. Yes, and you can get the superbly named expansion - Targi: The Expansion.
