I work in a Call Center. I hate it.

In light of that (admittedly unbased) assumption I shall forgo that particular ...

Re: Board games anyone?

Yeah, Arkham Horror is a pretty hefty game, solid and weighty. I don't know what your limit is, but for all it's weight it's a great game! Especially if you're fond of the lore. The gameplay and rules take getting used to, but it's one of the better boardgames I've played in the past few years. Simi...

Re: Mass Effect 3

Man I hate spoilers, I played the demo and it was pretty clean. But still, spoilers are called that for a reason. It's never been a problem here, but I believe that there's a special hell for spoiler-trolls. A special hell.
