Bummer. I didn't realize there was a difference and just assumed it all worked with whatever. Sorry :/
Sometimes I play games.

RE: Imperial Struggle
Not sure about Steam as I don't use it, but there's an Android app and an iOS app (I don't think they play with each other though - since Sturtzel couldn't play Greg and I). Probably a Steam version though. Unrelated, but Greg has been pressing me on the Switch and told me Baldur's Gate is being issues on the Switch, so the case is growing and I believe you can DL games for it through Steam? I dunno, I may be wrong I'm so out of the video game zone, so don't know how downloading games really works, but maybe I'll get to know Steam soon enough.
Back to TS/IS, I can't imagine it's more than a 1 on 1 game just for the record, but yeah, it's a sick game and if you do have it and want to challenge me, my screen name is sellanraa :)
Not sure if I've ever posted about Twilight Struggle, but it's an awesome 2 player Cold War strategy game. It got ported over to an app, which is great because it automates so much of what makes it complex. Greg and I played remotely for awhile, but he bailed because he's playing too many other games (addict). I just got playing with some dude in Europe that is on a music forum with me (we have a thread about gaming) and he hipped me to a new release about the 18th century warring called Imperial Struggle. Excited to check it out, but hope there's an Android version too. Figured others may find it interesting:
RE: Burning Wheel Gold Revised
Ha, yeah - you missed the brief window where we had the BW Revised game with Chris Mitchell running and Tom being so good at gaming the system he basically forced us all to do whatever he wanted when he'd crush us in every Duel of Wits.
Anyway, good game. I'm hoping to find some pickup games or something at GenCon to dip back in. BW is probably/ultimately too complex, but I'm finally starting to understand Torchbearer, so maybe I can put together a one shot of that sometime. A couple new zines for that, I posted about one and apparently Thor (the creator) is coming up with one that'll appear on Kickstarter soon.
Burning Wheel Gold Revised
I was going to post about this yesterday, then pre-orders for $15 sold out and finally Luke decided to put more up at a higher price since they'd lose money if they kept selling for $15.
Anyway, they're putting out a revised version of the Burning Wheel Gold, if anyone is interested:
"BWHQ decided that we should fix all known errata. But even that wasn’t enough. They cracked their whips and demanded we address weak rules, inconsistencies and repetitive junk. I agreed to nearly all of the changes, but my one condition was that we couldn’t rewrite the book—the pagination had to remain the same. Rewriting everything means new layout. Which is death. Working within these limitations, we managed to make many fixes and tweaks. We even added rules for creating your own traits and rebalanced Elven Grief."
RE: Gen Con 2019
Wednesday super early because that's the educator/trade day.
My old roommate Chad, who you may have met from a few years ago goes to GaryCon every year and is constantly trying to get me to go. It'd be sweet and seems right up your alley with the old school vibes. If I recall it just doesn't fall very conveniently for me. What's in Texas? A new con?
It's weird that Indy has become so normal, I remember being cranky about the change when it happened, but it became pretty apparent that the infrastructure is really well suited for hosting, especially as it's gotten huge.
If you need roomies, you might touch base with Greg and/or Nick about it. I can PM you their phone numbers if you'd like.
