Sitting Python says (while standing), earn your brownie points, verify your clothes fit, choose your 12 best lens to bring, and prepare mentally (for the questions you will ask to probably test your brother).

This was a P500 from GMT: https://www.gmtgames.com/p-624-ancient-civilizations-of-the-inner-sea.aspx. I ordered last year for the March FMW that never happened.

I saw this in a P500 list early last year and thought "Perfect for an FMW". After all, who does not want to be Troy and drive a shaft deep inside the Wooden Horse! What looks intriguing is that we can all ally and play the system! Counter of the... Continue reading
