Hey Wil: Thanks for getting the word out; my wife & I bought a couple copies the last time you mentioned it, and we enjoyed it immensely. So, I just spammed a bunch of my FB friends about the free download ;-) I'm very intrigued/scared by all the other crazy books in the back of Shatnerquake (not sure if the download includes this); someday I hope to acquire a bunch of those and save them for a power outage time-passer.

I still have a couple boxes (by boxes I mean big storage boxes) of Magic cards, and you are so right about the arms race. I kept up for a while, buying some prebuilts and a few boosters every time a new expansion was released, but lately I don't even do that, both for insufficient income and insufficient play-foes. My oldest son is 6 and does like the [inferior] Pokemon, so it won't be long before I suggest MtG to him and that will probably be the end of my free time (I say that like it's a bad thing). My ex would hand me my ass often enough with an all-red deck largely featuring Dragon Whelps (and lightning bolts of course) from her total stash of maybe 250 cards vs. my 2000+ mr. suitcase collection, that I got over trying to access every card or capability (or designing decks specifically to beat other decks) and just had fun with what I was playing, win or lose. I still like my old Thallid deck from Fallen Empires, and a black/white deck with some obnoxious Royal Assassins -- and I too have never put sleeves on my cards. I still pine for the future (if such a thing is possible) when I have more time for gaming. Maybe after the economy stops being broken.

This is the first thing I thought of, when you said that http://startrekreview.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/t_traveler.jpg

Did you go to the Boingo Farewell Tour at the UA? My gf at the time was a huge fan so we went both nights, and I'm so glad we did! Also so glad I took my family to W00tstock v1.0.1 (we were upstairs, since Paul was nice enough to grant us Reserved status -- it's for the children!) Bummed that it was too late for us to stay in line and maybe get Just A Geek signed (MotF was 1 day too late; just started reading it). As it is, I'll have to buy Kid Beyond's merchandise online. BTW "Surly Wil Wheaton" is supervocalic, so pound that Guinness and proceed to the cursin'!

I am quite certain that I will love Munchkin -- it's definitely my kind of game, like the old Dungeon boardgame except a bit more complicated and a LOT more wacky. I've bought many expansions but haven't yet played any of them :-( I even bought the boardgame, because my family liked Talisman (even though it can be tedious at times), so I figure Munchkin will be that much better. Has anyone here tried the boardgame yet? I'm also a big fan of Fluxx and Looney Labs games in general

The race is on! Just bought tix for SF d20th, and just ordered MotFv1 from Lulu with 2-day shipping... will it get to SJ in time??? (we plan to hedge by visiting some bookstores too and maybe get a copy today, but the former is obviously more dramatic)
