Sure, I'd love to get together for a game. Origins is looking a little doubtful at the moment, as it starts just as I finish teaching a comparative government class at La Roche. I thought this was going to be the year, but probably not now.
Welcome aboard! But you might want to check the gender on your profile; are you really female?
By the way, I bought dozens of games over the years at both Bill and Walt's and Games Unlimited. In fact, do you remember Burland's Hobby Shop in the North Hills?
