"WBC 2014 is history.  And sand history was made as I lost in the quarterfinals of Victory in the Pacific--again--this year, garnering my 4th sand plaque in that event and my 5th overall.  All four quarterfinal games had to fall right for…"

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 replied to Mike O'Brien's discussion Some suggestions for beginners in the group In the Depths: Attack Sub

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.
