    Thanks again for having me on the show! It was a blast, and while I may be a little biased, I think it turned out really well.

      Agreed! It turned out quite well even with all my audio issues!

    Just a heads up, the Robinson Crusoe game got pushed back to “summer 2013.”

    Still, I share your excitement!

      Thanks for the update! That’s VERY disappointing that it’s being delayed.

      Just read through some posts on BGG on this and if it’s really delayed to make the game “better”, then I guess it’s a good thing.

      Now, I just hope that Terra Mystica and the Feld games don’t get bumped!
