You were my initial SS target; almost immediately after getting that, I got a PM'd correction with a new target. That target subsequently announced he got his SS package--before I had mailed it--so I'm thinking there was possibly an issue here.
But that's OK as I still have a box to send you [need your US mail drop if you still have it] and I can make up for it by adding some utterly random dross to it for that Satan effect. I still have some dreck that wouldn't fit in the box I sent my target ;-)
AHA! It was SebastianBludd who got the ex-wife sex games! Those were cherished and loved at some point by an ex-wife! YOU HIT THE JACKPOT!
Am I missing something? Am I the latest in a long line of saps to get the lovingly cherished ex-wife sex games? Am I breaking some sort of chain by taking them out of the F:AT loop and re-gifting them to my redneck brothers-in-law?
I suppose in return for me being triple Satan and covering at least one extra person last year, I apparently got double-teamed by Satan this year. The Halo Anniversary edition was in actuality kind of soul scarring, reminding me of all of the little things that got fixed in Halo 2.
In the midst of a bunch of other packages: (Including the Mistress of Demonic Cat's Tellurion...Ssh). There was this thing:
"What do you get the man who has everything? Satan says: Variations on a couple of themes! Redcoats being slaughtered by guys with spears! Card games! Wrestling!" Satan
Inside was a dozen little slices of evil. Satan actually did himself proud, getting a 75% success rate of stuff I didn't already have.
....and some surprisingly good stuff. I adore the Lightning series, but never got around to picking up Poland and Terror. Then there is some other DVG game which...I tend to really kind of hate. The roll up board is for Navia Dratp, which is actually a rather good game. And I have a lot of stuff for it, oddly enough
And then we get the stuff I already have:
Set: good game, and a Sandi favorite.
Vortex: Some extra flats. This is a GREAT game, probably my favorite of the CxG games.
Wrestleangel: This is a soul-searingly bad wrestling game themed around the races in Warangel. I figured no one but me and James/Sheila had copies of this. Now I have two. Satan is truly evil.
And then it gets really scary:
THREE different Roarke's Drift boardgames. I actually do have quote a few wargames, but none are about Roarke's Drift. Which is odd, because I've always been quite interested in the Zulu Wars. Which means: SATAN IS IN MY HEAD!!!!
And then. The horror. The "You are fucking kidding me."
I opened it with fear and trepidation. The contents?
A starter of Clout Fantasy with 2 armies inside
Online Internet Card Game - this looks horrendous
Coup - A Steve Jackson game? Goddammit, Satan, that's just rude.
Shattered States - Looks like a 2-6 player game about apocalyptic America
And a Winsome games copy of Baltimore and Ohio! Since I'm a bit of a Euro snoot I'm excited to try that one out. I don't know much about it so I looked it up. Looks like a pretty heavy economic game. I've got just the guys to play it with. Should be awesome.
Satan, you were great. I feel bad for the poor slob that gets the box I sent out.
Andy, I just got off the horn with your SS. He said:
Horgy borgy, yuck yuck yuck. Tellen dem Andy that hees pakudge shood be there soon. Keepen dem Barnes posted. Ooo la la.
(ends awful pan-European accent)
Dog, I think I know why you got confused. I sent Frank that "other" SS package just because he had asked after my review copy of Halo, which I just gave him. I figured I owe him for years of wearing out his Rock Band instruments and that time I spilled a beer.
