    Most likely so...assuming that there's a decent royalty attached to that

    As a matter of fact, if that happened I'd wager Len Lakofka would return.

    My main problem would be finding someone to translate AD&D into the new system, whatever its number would be then

    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.

    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, 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

    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.
