Re: Board games anyone?

Yep! That's the one. Although it's much cheaper on Amazon (was $20 last time i check), which is a great deal for the amount of cards you get. Awesome game. Been playing some of Merchants and Marauders too, which I know some people around these parts have played. Lots of fun, although our first two g...

Re: Board games anyone?

Haha I think there was a mis-communciation there.

Android: Netrunner is a psychical card game only, has nothing to do with android phones. FFG have an older board game called Android, so when they remade Netrunner they set it in the same world/brand.

The Paradox pack deal at amazon, $12 for a bunch of good paradox games, is worth it for Crusader Kings 2 alone IMO, which is still $30 or so on steam i believe.

I disagree, thought S2 was a giant waste of time, and wouldn't have bothered after the first 4-5 episodes if my gf hadn't kept watching.

Of course I didn't really care for the 1st season either after the pilot, so if you loved that maybe you'll still like the 2nd season.
