I really enjoy my LGS, but my main complaint concerning it is that some of the guys there are total dudebros and complete assholes towards women.

For example, I was talking to a girl that I usually play against that’s really good. She had just made some changes to her deck and said something along the lines of, “I’d say we could sit down and you could take a look at it, but there’s nowhere to sit.“ As if on cue, this guy shifts around in his chair and says, “There’s a seat right here for ya,” motioning to his lap.

Seeing a golden opportunity to teach this guy a lesson I moved toward him and said “Awh sweet! Thank you!“ Just as I was about to not sit on his lap he threw a string of “no’s” and curses at me, which the girl I was talking to followed with, “Well, you did offer.“

I just so happened to find a copy of Karnov at my local game store the other day... Dude... WHAT IN THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE?!

You’ve been blessed by the eastern vodka bear spirit of karnov.

After many years of trying to defeat the diseases that threaten mankind’s existence, the tables have been turned. You are now the disease and guess what? There is no cure.

In Pandemic: Contagion, you are competing against other diseases (fellow players) to see who can eliminate humanity. With no cure to be had, the one of you that wipes out all human civilization will come out on top as the most deadly disease ever known to man, may he rest in peace.

Pandemic: Contagion includes a deck of contagion cards with differing colored borders, city cards with similar colored borders, event/WHO cards, player disease card and disease cubes. On a turn you take two of three possible actions, and you can take the same action twice. Those actions are:

  • Draw contagion cards equal to your current incubation rate.
  • Advance one of three mutations to the next level.
  • Spread disease equal to your current transmission rate.

When the number of diseases equals the city’s population number, the city is wiped out. The player who placed the final disease earns a special action. The player with the most diseases scores the population number. The two smaller numbers are awarded to those with the second- and third-most diseases.

Your disease card has three mutations: Incubation (number of cards you can draw), Transmission (number of disease cubes you can spread), and Resistance (number of cubes/cards you can protect). As an action, you can advance a mutation one level by discarding the required number of cards.

Event cards are drawn at the start of each round and affect everyone during their turn. You might benefit from the card or it could have a negative impact. WHO cards are always bad, but your resistance will lessen whatever the penalty would be based on its level, if you planned ahead.

Mid-game scoring occurs when the second, fourth and sixth skull comes out. When a city icon appears, a new city is introduced.

Once the event/WHO deck runs out or only two city cards remain in play, the game ends, with players conducting a final scoring round to see which virus is victorious.

We have it in store now so come down and pick up a copy if you’re interested. 

sad day

so … someone burglarized my boyfriend’s magic shop last night … or technically very early this morning

spent the better part of the day cleaning up shattered glass, securing the ex-window, assessing the inventory for theft and damage

we have insurance, of course, and police detectives are getting involved, but still … super lame

no details allowed in public forums, but to think that someone from within the magic community would do this … super lame and disappointing

My wife and I tried to get into the local game store this weekend but they were closed! Have a great Memorial Day weekend if you’re in the states. Praise Singuinius. Praise the Emperor.

I never heard of dragon age before following you and now, at 00:45 and after weeks of dragon age posts, there is nothing i rather do then get the game at my local game store.

Do it. Buy one game. Buy all the games! Do nothing but play the games for a week!
Honestly. They are a few of the best games I have ever played. The universe is really fun and interesting, the story as creative and exciting and the characters are precious babies with strong personalities. Not to mention how many perfect female characters there are in these games! They’re everywhere! And the games are really great with LGBTQ - Representation, and it gets better and better with every game!
