  1. Disenchantment (Netflix)

    Watched a handful of episodes last night. I think that the show works pretty well. And I do think that there is a fair amount of it that just feels like a medieval Futurama. Has anyone else watched it?
  2. So new forum, new number of keepers 12, and the same amount of fun... ah, I was hoping we could add some fun. Team owners are here: 1. It's a Sabotage - IN 2. Sllim_Pickens - IN 3. DetFan - IN 4. CalLionsFan - IN 5. JaguarCrazy - IN 6. USMC - IN 7. Gnat - IN 8. catcheryea - IN 9. ChiSoxGuy - IN 10. Ziggy19 - IN 11. Canadian_Patriot - IN 12. Oregon Ducks - IN Check in again, and I'll update soon with the draft order.
  3. I'm assuming that they are trying to drum up extra value for the trade, but I expect a trade to happen.
  4. I know we have a few board game players in the forum, so I thought it would be fun to have a thread for board games. To get it started, what are your top 10 board games? Pandemic Legacy Season 1 - Awesome game, great story to the game, it's cooperative, and what happens in previous games affects the future games. Blood Rage - Another awesome game, you are a Vikings tribe and trying to get the most victory points, you're battling over areas, building up your army, and it's just really well done. Betrayal At the House on the Hill - Semi-cooperative game. You start out working together and then someone becomes a traitor, not a perfect game, but I like it every time that I play it. Dead of Winter - A zombie game, but it's not about the zombies (though they can kill you), it's about keeping the colony alive. Smallworld - It's a fun version of Risk, which turns people off from the game. It is a great game where you are trying to get the most points with crazy combinations of fantasy races and powers. Pandemic - Just the regular version of the game is great as well, would probably be higher if you counted how often we play it, but with Legacy being better, I move it a touch lower now. Tsuro - A ton of fun, super fast board game that can handle 8 players, a game that you want to play again once you've finished it. Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game - This game is fast, it has a wonderful balance of powers, it is almost always close, and the mechanics are a ton of fun. Lord of the Rings - This game feels like playing Lord of the Rings, but it doesn't take as long as the books. King of Tokyo - Fun simple game, you play as monsters who are punching each other, I want to get the expansion that makes the monsters unique.
  5. 3/4 done with a birthing class, and the most useful thing has come from it is that I've found another couple who board games, and they are a fun couple to talk to. Already planning on inviting them over for the next board game night that we do, and hopefully they can make it. You find new people to game with in all sorts of places if you just are open about board gaming.
  6. Yeah, the vision was definitely shocking for the player that I had see it. What hook did you use to get them into the lands? For me, it was getting Irena to Krezk so they had a reason to know about the Abbey, but they didn't love it there for some reason.
  7. Nice, that's a good time. I've had my party do things in so many odd orders, and I've found that a number of the encounters are pretty brutal so it's a bit tricky for them to get that much XP. I haven't done anything with the vision of hanging.

  9. 2018 NBA Random Offseason Discussion

    Who wants Jimmy Butler?
  10. Jimmy Butler has requested a trade from the Wolves. I mean, I guess I'm fine with that, it's the Wolves, I don't care that much.
  11. We had three characters retire yesterday while playing Gloomhaven. That means next time we'll be playing, we'll be running a completely different team than we have before. I've played my new one once, and I was hoping that I was going to be more aggro, but I'm kind of support again.
  12. I really like Loki, however, I don't want to a show about Loki. I think one about the Scarlett Witch and maybe doing it earlier with Quicksilver still around, that could be very interesting as well.
  13. Captain Marvel (March 2019)

    Solid trailer, I actually like parts of the trailer being set in the past. I don't know, now that I've seen Brie Larson in that role that she's the best fit for it, something about it just seemed slightly off to me, but for the most part it looked very interesting.
  14. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    I'm really tired today. Got too worked up yesterday, somewhat from the Vikings game, mainly from family drama on the in-laws side, they are legit crazy at this point. My wife is getting more on board with some form of cutting them off until they get things worked out, especially with the baby on the way. Tie that in with Saturday being hot and doing a lot of work to get the nursery further along without being able to run the AC because my parents were around to help with the nursery and cleaning windows just means that I'm tired and fairly cranky today. Happy Monday to me.
  15. Home Improvement/Remodel Thread

    Yeah, the issue with that is that there's still some chain link fence in there as well. I probably will just use a swede saw to cut it off at ground level.
  16. Home Improvement/Remodel Thread

    Recommendations for how to remove a stump? Can't grind it out because it's too close to cement, want to get it to basically ground level.
  17. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    Elflien is practicing, but Jones is still working with the first unit. I'd expect Elflien to probably take another week before being back.
  18. 5,000 or Bust '18

    He's a bum, he's not better than Teddy Bridgewater.

  21. Players can now just be added as you go, I want everyone to hopefully have a full roster by the end of the day. The draft is done, I will add Broncos for Sllim's draft
  22. @Sllim Pickens has missed his two hours. @chisoxguy7 is now OTC. We have 1 hour left before it's a free for all, as I want people to have full rosters, so you can just pick people up then.
  23. Week 1: 49ers (0-0) at VIKINGS (0-0)

    Posted this in the offensive line thread, but relevant for week 1 as well: Jones to start at Center. Probably not a huge surprise.
  24. Move for Week 1, makes sense I would say, then he can move to OG once Elflein gets back.
