    The only question is whether I should buy it myself, or persuade a friend to do so.

    I'm feeling lucky at present - I have many friends who enjoy board games, rpgs and other games, and who have the time to play them with me.

    Cheers!

    Tom Wham enumerated several features of the Ticket to Ride Europe game that made it better in play that the US version, so I'd go with the former if you are getting only one of the two versions.

    Today is boardgaming afternoon ar Ernie's, and I am up for another session of Ticket to Ride, but if there are only three of us it will be Axis & Allies D-Day.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Gary, what was the climate of the Flanaess and Hempmonaland like, during the latter times of the Suel Imperium and Baklunish Empire?
    And what was the climate of the Baklunish Empire, like, during that time?
    Certainly it was 2 degrees F. warmer and average annual rainfall was two inches greater. The warmer climate and additional rainfall enabled the production of more food crops to support larger populations, more armed troops.

    Or maybe it was the opposire

    Cheers,

    This Just In!

    Seeing as how this was brought up here a bit earlier:

    Sad news...

    With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at
    the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important
    person, which almost went unnoticed last week. Larry LaPrise, the man
    that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most
    traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put
    his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

    Shut up. You know it's funny.

    The author of that is one Cookie "Chainsaw" Randall, a sportscaster and radio personality at KGB FM here in San Diego. He's part of the morning crew trio, Dave, Shelly, and Chainsaw. You can write him at dsc@101kgb.com and let him know what you think of the joke.

These modules are by no means mandatory, so all can be ignored. OTOH, they do all the drudgery work for the Castle Keeper, include adventure scvenarios, and a slug of adventure hooks for the CK to use.

    I plan to use the lot, alter some entries to suit my own ideas and the needs of my group.

    Thanks Gary,

    Okay, so the town of Yggsburgh is going to be developed block by block. Gotchya. So how about Yggsburgh's environs? Take the Bald Hills for example. Besides the Zagyg adventure references listed, there isn't a lot of detail, which is great, because it allows me to further develop the area to my own tastes.

    I'm actually thinking of basing my group in the town of Garham. That way, much of the Town of Yggsburgh will be unknown and largely unexplored by the players. Sure they may have gone there on occassion, but at least it will allow me to best take advantage of Yggsburgh as it develops under your masterful guidance. Of course I always tinker with published materials, but that's to be expected of any half-competent DM/GM/CK or what have you. :-)

    One thing that bothers me about CZ:Yggsburgh is the notations on Darlene's beautiful map. I think marking numbered encounter areas sort of spoils the idea of me ever showing my players this map, which is a shame because I love Darlene's work. But I can see my players now: "Hey, I want to go explore encounter area #33 in Wild Mead, let's go!" And sure enough they will find some goblin bandits there up to no good. I would have greatly prefered a map that I could actually share with my players. The numbered encounter areas should have been only listed on the small b&w map inside the book, IMO. :\

    But all in all, I'm loving CZ. Keep up the great work! Take care.
