This weekend is Strategicon, Gamex at the Sheraton (one time only at that hotel) at LAX.
I will be playtesting a few games at the show — my designs in fact — with some of my friends. If you're going to be at the show, let me know. We can play/schedule a time for you (the reader) to game with us.
I ordered a copy of WIN PLACE and SHOW from ebay and it just arrived today. Near perfect condition, considering it's over 30 years old.
If you've never played it and are even remotely interested in horses, I highly recommend it. One of the best board games ever made.
Still holds up, unlike it's cousin Circus Maximus, which fails to do what it's supposed to do.
