“EA’s Troubled Decade Of Star Wars Games” https://kotaku.com/ea-s-troubled-decade-of-star-wars-games-1831807493
2 multiplayer FPS in 6 years is unacceptable and poor output from EA. FFG has released more excellent and varied board games in that amount of time.

Sounds like a fun social game, I can imagine a lot of amusing take that gameplay and outrageous bidding.
Purchase wise I’ll Kickstart the Root expansion later this year and probably treat myself with a £200 budget for UK Games Expo. Maybe Kickstart one or two titles if something very special comes up. And probably get some expansions for the games I already own and love.
My other aim for 2019 is to buy fewer board games.
It sound laughable considering my new job earns me 3 times as much as my previous line of work, but I sincerely feel I shouldn’t have a problem achieving this goal.
My board game café ambitions are going on hiatus and my gaming group is filled with so many games that I already satisfied with what I own. I’m just gonna enjoy everyone else’s stuff.
@meeplegamers Have to say I like your logo, the colour gradients are pleasing to the eyes. 👍
I avoid being ‘that person’ who gets offended if a product they ordered does not arrive the very second after they order it.
That said, I feel like I may have been a little too patient with the Kids on Bikes RPG book. Everyone else seems to have their copy and I’m twiddling my thumbs wondering if I should make my next email to support a little more passive aggressive.
Been browsing my board game stats for 2018 and formulating aims for 2019. Initially I thought about beating my 401 play sessions, but then it’s not the kind of quantitive goal that’s going to give me value.
Instead I shall aim to play over 85 new games this year, since I enjoy new experiences.

I need to learn to stop being so accommodating for friends. A friend offers to sell me Descent and Whitechapel for £45, but asked I send the money to a bloke on a FB game trade group for This War of Mine and have it sent to him. Now I’m having to be a middle man finding out when my friend’s game is going to arrive.
I need to someday do a new years eve party where my gaming group gets drunk and then I bring out a copy of Monopoly, plus loads of spare gaming parts like meeples and dice. Then we make up a game together and will theoretically be better than Monopoly, or at least more amusing. I can imagine some strange worker placement rules and money auction shenanigans being implemented.
