    Timeline is a great game, but like trivial pursuit, it can get easy once you learn a lot of the dates for things.

    You're assuming one may have a memory as good as YOU, Mousie,, Moosie?

    Speaking of board games, Mooseman, when is that gaming convention returning to Northeastern Ohio?

    It's Meese or Moosi......

    I am not sure that I will be able to make it. Unless we get a CPA contingent, then I will make the effort.
  5. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    If by "CPA contingent" you mean me and you, then yes, I think we can pull that off. Ransac left Ohio for Maryland, saying something about wanting to stalk Spiderman. Maybe you can drag Killer Joe along; otherwise I'd have to convince Turgy22 to take some vacation time to visit Ohio...
  6. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    We will have to see. Really, it's only about 6 or 7 hours for Spidey and Ransac....... :D

    LOL. Yeah, there's no way I can make it out there. Too much traveling scheduled elsewhere this year...

    Let check my schedule...

    DSo the timeline game I bought "American History" had an error in it, one card said that Gerald Ford was elected President in 1972.

    Nixon was elected in '72, right?

    Harry Turtledove says that Ford was elected in 1972 and that is where the alternate history starts......
    Carter is not elected in 1976 when he runs against Reagan.
    In 1978, Reagan is then assassinated by the head of the CIA head,GH Bush, in a coup that fails and VP Bob Dole is elected to two more terms.
    Warren Buffet is elected in 1990 with running mate Ross Perot.......

    Soon El Grande will be added to the list, I'm thinking it'll be in the top 10
    Oversoul likes this.
  12. turgy22 Nothing Special

    I never heard of any of those.

    Any recommendations for a game that's just as fun for 2 players as it is for 5, involves some level of thinking, but isn't overly complicated and can be completed in about an hour?

    The only one I've heard of (and played) is Ticket to Ride.
  14. Psarketos Metacompositional Theoretician

    Turgy, my favorites seem to match your parameters - Agricola, Caylus, and Chess. From Killer Joe's list I can also personally recommend Elder Sign.

    Games I am looking to learn, possibly over the holiday season: Ex Libris and Xiangqi.
