"Now, since you've taken it," I say, temporarily putting the red 2-point Icehouse piece in John Marketon's stash, "you can play it any way you want. So you can play it out like this." I place the piece upright on the bar.

Lord of the Rings:
The Fellowship of the Ring

Even though it's been over 20 years since I read the books, I can still remember the stuff they left out and/or changed for this movie. But I'm not one of those purists who was upset by such changes... on the contrary, I thought this adaptation was quite magnificent, incredible even. (And for those in the know, just think of those missing adventures with Tom Bombadil and the Barrow-wights as being like a reward for those who go to the trouble of reading the original text.)

What's Going On? Geronimo Inquirer #6 Has Shipped!

No time to write much of an article this week... we're about to rush off to Toy Fair and we still have a ton of packing and prep work ahead of us. But I'm very pleased to report that this year's issue of the Geronimo Inquirer is finally in the mail! This being our version of an annual holiday newsletter, it was supposed to go out in December, and it's dated January... now it's February, and I'm really glad these are finally on their way. (It was delayed by all sorts of things, not the least of which is our new database software, which we're still building -- Kristin had to generate most of the mailing labels using the old system, which was a painful but necessary backstep.)

Anyway, with that I shall leave you with a couple of pretty pictures. The first is of a lovely arrangement of flowers Alison made for us this week, and the second is our current favorite photo of the pyramids, which I took for a full-page ad we're getting in the Origins Pre-Registration book (which we hastily threw together earlier this week).


There will be no update next week, due to Toy Fair.

Happy Valentine's Day!


the story so far

Thought Residue
I'm digging the fact that every 13 months for the next ten years we will have a date that looks like this past Saturday's: 2/2/2. Do you think the Fundamentalist Christians will freak out in four years, when we get to 6/6/6? (It will be a Tuesday, in case you were wondering.)
Fata Morgana has posted translations into German of the rules to Aquarius, along with descriptions of all our games!
"I'm their dentist!" -- he's actually our dentist's associate, but he was very excited to overhear a store clerk in a magic store in California pitching Fluxx as a really great game (apparently the clerk wasn't impressed)
