Earth Reborn clean-up

We had a good time with our play through of Earth Reborn the other week, but upon completion, I had a big mess. I had a heap of counters and one cryptically compartmentalized vacuum tray in the box to figure it out.

The solution to these problems is always just a few clicks away at boardgamegeek.com and this was no exception. I found an outstanding guide to packing here:

That thread also had a link to a nice official file showing where the bits go in the tray. This took some geometric wrestling in my head to interpret, but once I “got it” things went back in the box pretty quickly.

All of that is really just preamble to my main point. It took me maybe 30 minutes to sort and place the different counters. It was a Sunday afternoon, my youngest was napping, and it was profoundly enjoyable. I find something quite therapeutic in carefully organizing a good board game and this was no exception.

CabinCon break

We just completed our annual CabinCon, a four day festival of gaming in a cabin in the Pennsylvania mountains, this year by Raystown Lake.  It was a great chance to get some R&R, play some great games and enjoy the winter weather. Pat, Adam, Denny and I were joined by 10 others, many of whom you’ll meet over the next weeks and months.

We’ll be digging in to Dungeon Lords next week with Adam walking us through this game!
