    I think "Space Rangers" should be changed to "Space Rangers 2" instead. #2 is waaaaaaaay better than #1. Space Rangers 2 with the "Reboot" expansion is even better.

    Seriously, about 95% of the current spam topics are made by people who haven't previously made a post. How about you give this 'one post requirement' a try to see if it works out? The situation as it...
