Oi. I suppose it could be worse, though – I could have taken up smoking again. wink

We got the base set when it was on sale for $28 USD at Target a few days before Christmas, and finally got around to giving it a whirl last night. Great game. We're hooked enough, even just having played three games of the quick start rules, that I've ordered another base set and 2 of each of the wave 1 expansions, and we're eagerly awaiting wave 2.

I've a feeling that this and Ludus Gladiatorius (assuming I finish my portable arena), between them, will account for the vast majority of our gaming time in 2013.

I tell you, I love it! Been working on my Freighter for it:

Truly impressive, Warlock!

I am strongly considering making X-Wing my first game of the New Year. If I can pry myself away from bowl games.

Yep. Better just order the Plano model 7771 Starport to hold the next 3 years of expansions. I have a feeling they will invent ships just to keep this thing rolling. It is fun. Can't wait to put all my new ships on the table.

I've started a support group for this, as well as for all other miniatures, miniatures rules, boardgames, models, precious metals and jewels hoarders, foreign sports car collectors, etc.

Should it prove too overwhelming, I'm here to help you with your burden, and to kick the habit. I'm non-judgmental as well, so won't criticize your purchases, paint jobs, basing material chosen, or questionable rules system purchases.

Just ship everything to me, prepaid, and there will be no questions asked.

I'm here for you, and others…….

Hey, that's MY shill!

True, but I've expanded it a bit, e.g. to the precious metals, foreign sports cars, etc.

I'm also helping in other areas too, e.g. private jets, yachts, small tropical islands and island hideaways, and discarded or overly clingy, rich supermodels as well.

Mako just when I'm beginning to lose faith in all humanity I read your message and quickly decide that humanity has so much more to offer…by that I mean you forgot to mention offerings of actual hard cash…don't sell yourself sort man

Cash is just paper with pretty ink on it.

Virtually worthless when it hits the fan……

Probably good in a toilet paper shortage though.
