Back When Planking was Cool
You may have noticed that I’m a huge nerd. If not, please let this serve as official notice:
I’ve already mentioned that I’m a fan of elaborate boardgames. What I may not have said is that I also have a weakness for pirates.
I happen to be in the middle of reading Mike Kalmbach’s The Caldarian Conflict, which is chock-full of high-seas adventure, so my resistance is at an all-time low. In a sinister conspiracy against my wallet, one of my friends managed to call me during my moment of weakness and mentioned that he heard about Merchants & Marauders and that it was REALLY GOOD. And that we should play, RIGHT NOW.
So…I bought it. Sue me, I’m weak.
It arrived today, so hopefully on Saturday my dining room table will look like this:
All I can promise is that my posts next week will contain the words “YARRR” and “BOOTY” as few times as I can manage.
