Jim Eliason commented on Andreas Ludwig's group Fire in the Sky
"Thanks Kev.  Duh, now that I checked, the 26 Feb post does look truncated.  It must have been too long.  But it was so long ago now that I don't remember what I was going to say next.   I guess it was to use economy of…"

Jim Eliason commented on Andreas Ludwig's group Fire in the Sky
"I recently finished a PBEM game of this.  I beat a newbie as the Japanese.  I'm in turn 6 of another game where my Japanese have gotten terrible dice.  Rangoon never fell, and I've given up on it.  Surabaya survived…"

Jim Eliason commented on Herr Dr.'s group WBC Sand Plaquers
"IIRC Tom, that completes your collection, all plaque types 1st - 6th.  I'm missing a 4th, but have three types of 1st (four if a team title counts as different).  Does that make you the only one with a "cycle"?"

Hi Jim! I think we met a few years ago.. Hope things are going well for you! For the record, the Mage group is still active in Sioux City and Sioux Falls, though not a lot of boardgaming anymore, alas. I'm mostly residing in NY now, BTW.
