Hi everyone. I know not many of you are still reading since I rarely post anymore. Sorry about that.
Long story short: if you've heard about the flooding in Texas, that's me. I live in Dickinson. I'm in the process of moving house. Luckily my homes have remained dry so far. But my temporary storage unit (which held a lot of my game stuff, furniture, tools, and so on) is probably a total loss along with many others'. I don't know for sure because I still can't get there.
My friend Zach, whom I have mentioned here before, lost everything but his family. They had to escape through a hole he cut in their roof as water rose into their home.
So, if you're of a prayerful mindset, we could use them.

Hey all. I played a new boardgame last night, and enjoyed it a lot. My usual Tuesday night Pathfinder game was canceled because the game master is in DC for a couple of weeks for work. So some of us got together and played boardgames. Anyway, Steve brought his favorite game, Pandemic. It was my first time to play it, and it was fun, but kind of tough.
Players take the roles of various members of an epidemic control team. The goal is to come up with a cure for each of four plagues (blue, red, black, and yellow) before time runs out or a worldwide panic ensues. It's a cooperative game, so everyone wins or loses, like Arkham Horror. In our first game, we lost, because one of the diseases began a series of outbreaks and we couldn't keep up. Our second game of the night we won, but only just before time ran out.
Anyway, it was a lot of fun, and the cooperative aspect made for a very social game.
