|It isn't Christmas in Britain until everyone is crying at this.|
I hope you are all having a nice Christmas. I am in my house with Sister Superior, preparing for some lunch and our annual greet-a-thon as we watch The Snowman on Channel 4.
|I'd prefer if they showed the David Bowie intro|
Inevitably, I got mostly nerdy gifts from kith and kin. When in doubt for me, Lego or comics was a good bet in 1989 and it's still a good bet now. However, I have two notable gifts I'd like to share with you.
|....And She Don't Care|
First up is a copy of Ticket to Ride, the German train-line-building board game. Sister Superior and I played this a few times earlier in the year as it was one of the board games on the cruise ship - I'd heard of it before but had no experience of it actually at the table. We had a lot of fun and have talked about picking it up - evidently, she could no longer wait.
|The version we played was this, the American map - the one we have now is a Europe map.|
This will inevitably get busted open later today but I'm also keen to try it with more players - I imagine it gets more interesting in a larger group.
|Not a fascinating package, but the contents are fun.|
The other gift also has a connection with our anniversary, because back then I was given a Chaos Dwarf engine of war - now I've got another one in the shape of the Magma Cannon. Hooray for explosions!
|Hoping for good things here.|
|Merry Shitcrams to all, and to all a good shite!|
