Casey, Jiri, and Brian. (Brian didn't *really* have all those cities.)
Someone very special to me suggested that I was a nerd for going to play Settlers of Catan last night. That meant alot to me coming from him! Sigh ... but if only I was. No matter how hard I tried I still couldn't quite see the appeal in it. I had observed my flatmates during the T4G conference week play with our friend Nikki (who adores the game!) The laughter that proceeded from the table of dull confusion boggled my mind. Had they been drinking?! What was the appeal?
But then I heard that my friend Casey had fallen in love with the game over the Summer. Sigh ... I'd give it a go ... for her. Eventually I became aware of the strategy involved ... but where was the insane laughter? Was I missing something? Am I only a wanna-be-Nerd?
My only feat of the evening was Jiri and I introducing the traditional nose wiggle greeting of the Czech people to the others. They caught on rather quickly.
