    Webnovel / Webserials Discussion Thread

    I have a question about RoyalRoad. How do you find out a story's statistics like user rating, Followers, and page count if it is NOT on the Best Rated page? I ask because if I go to a story's page, it only shows individual user ratings, not the aggregate rating, nor does it show page count...

    Webnovel / Webserials Discussion Thread

    Chapters of Savage Divinity like 494 are why it sometimes feels like the author is intentionally padding the story. 4,000+ words and at least 75% of it was describing the people attending a New Year's party. Descriptions that seem to be entirely unnecessary for the plot of the story. Which is...

    Where can I find a box?

    I use Broken Token a lot, which boxes are you referring to? Do you mean the wooden box kits? The high capacity card cases? Both of those are a lot more expensive than I'm thinking.

    Where can I find a box?

    I've got a board game named Welcome To... that has a bunch of extras and takes up more space than the box it came in. Anybody know of someone who sells cardboard boxes like the ones games are sold in (aka not shipping boxes)? I'm looking to buy a bigger box to store all the stuff in. I was...

    Where would you drop Ptolus in Eberron?

    Eberron is probably my favorite overall setting in D&D, and I've never gotten a chance to play Ptolus. I've been thinking about combing the two, and I'm not sure where I'd place Ptolus in Eberron, and what impact that would have on the politics of the region it's in. No matter where it's...

    Dune board game - is it worth it?

    This right here is why I personally will not be buying it. My cap for board game duration is around 4 hours and I've heard multiple people say this game can last 6+ hours.

    The waiting game (games preordered and backed on Kickstarter)

    I did receive the Snowdonia Kickstarter. If you've never played the game (like me) it has a less than forthright way of determining what cards do what, and which cards are base game and which cards are expansion. A component list better than "720 cards" would've been nice. I had to go to BGG...

    [Kickstarter] Gloomhaven: Second Printing

    Last night I officially closed the book on the base game. I have played * all the scenarios in the base book * all the solo scenarios * all the mini-campaign scenarios * the not-really-official "alternate Seeker of Xorn" 3 scenario chain * a few Casual replays to retire some characters All...

    The waiting game (games preordered and backed on Kickstarter)

    I believe I just received a shipment notification for Snowdonia Kickstarter today. How am I not sure? Because it's a generic UPS shipping notification, not one from the shipper.

    Tales from the loop - I want this but...

    I roll my eyes at the bit I've quoted above. I agree with your assertion about how the hysteria led to changing perspective on unsupervised children.

    Tales from the loop - I want this but...

    Yes, the kidnapping hysteria and Stranger Danger in the 1980s, a decade in which kidnappings of children statistically decreased. :rolleyes:

    [Recommendations] What are the best drafting games?

    If you like mixing direct confrontation with your Drafting either of the two Eric Lang mythology games will work. Blood Rage uses a drafting mechanism very similar to 7 Wonders while Rising Sun action drafting is more like Puerto Rico. Terraforming Mars draft variant is the only way I play the...

    Tales from the loop - I want this but...

    Note that the movies this convention is based on are themselves based on the very real issue of 'latchkey kids' that was prevalent (at least in the USA) through the 1970s and 1980s. The stereotypical situation was that the Boomer parents were more interested in whatever they were doing and let...

    Your last game played, part 2

    Gloomhaven campaign continues apace. 4 more scenarios completed. --- Our game night started with a game of King of Tokyo. We'd all played it before, but realized we hadn't played in awihle. Next was Puerto Rico. Every time I play it I understand more and more why it was BGG #1 for so long...

    The waiting game (games preordered and backed on Kickstarter)

    For me, in addition to everything you said, I also have barely played Near and Far, let alone played through the whole campaign.
