Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Just happened about half-hour ago: downstairs at the Sheraton..
A game of Settlers was about to be played, but was switched to Citadels instead.
The reason?
(paraphrased) "Settlers [of Catan] is far too mainstream."
There's much more you all have heard so far, so let's hear them!

Vanishing Point on
Fact 200. Album One - Conch shell red. Album Two - Peony blue. Not for resale unless desperate.

    Going down the elevator of my hotel, a 40 year old woman enters and looks at my badge.

    "Are you here for the gaming expo? Are you a gamer? Aren't you a little old?"

    Haha, my group was wanting to overhear something funny ... I guess this is our entry so far today:

    Said by a friend while sitting eating at the udon place down the hall while referring to their "spicy squid" :

    "I think it's cumulative... "Tap one red mana to add +1/+1 to Spicy Squid. If more than 5 red mana are used in this manner, sacrifice your a**hole at end of turn." "
