Every week I have to remind this on the Cardboard Children/Diaries and this week it is time to remind the forums.

You can play boardgames online. Not all of them but certainly a lot. There are people willing to play them with you at some given time.

This month's game: Summoner Wars

SUMMONER WARS: MASTER SET Ė Iíve spoken many times before about how wonderful Summoner Wars is. The new Master Set introduces a bunch of new armies inside a big awkwardly sized box that is going to give me some serious shelving headaches. If you havenít played Summoner Wars yet, youíre crazy.
If you havenít played Summoner Wars, youíre missing out on something special. You can even buy a hard playing board for it now, so there are LITERALLY NO NEGATIVES.

Oooh! I didn't realize someone Vassalified it! Most excellent. I should very much like to try it out, as it has been on my wish list for a while. I'm loath to purchase games without playing them (though that didn't stop Galaxy Trucker, Space Alert, and Cosmic Encounter from working out gorgeously).

This is my single favorite boardgame ever made. Learning Vassal now.

I've been wanting to buy the Master Set for ages now. Any clue where I can get my hands on it in the UK? Might pop into Forbidden Planet at lunch and have a look-see.

Got my brother this. Bought it on amazon. I remember at the time if you were going to buy the master set and some of the other races, it was cheaper alltogher to get it shipped from the US site, provided you dont have to pay for multiple packages.
