I've buggered off to pastures new. @runciblemoon
@nate That is a strong offer.
It's like the last person to sit at this desk was allergic accuracy and generally being competent at basic administrative tasks. I've more or less managed so far but today has broken me.
WHY ARE THERE TWO SEPARATE CODES FOR RUFFORTH SCHOOL? WHY DO WE HAVE SEPARATE LETTERS CONTAINING DATES AND REGISTRATION LINKS RESPECTIVELY? HOW THE SHITTING CHRIST HAS ANY OF THIS HAPPENED?
@ITOmarHernandez It's a small deck of playing cards where most cards are dual-suited rather than single suited, and they also have unique names and images like Tarot cards. There have been many very unique games designed for it, rules for which can be found on the Decktet wiki.
@ITOmarHernandez If you're interested in pure solo games (I find them useful to have so I'm not always harassing my partner to play games!) then I can't recommend the Oniverse series enough. So far I have Onirim and Castellion, with Sylvion next on my list!
Also for maximum bang for your buck, why not pick up a Decktet?
@ITOmarHernandez Link's not working for me, unfortunately but I second Pandemic (original, not Legacy) and Carcassonne as modern classics that it's hard to go wrong with. I'd also recommend Dominion - lots of relatability in just the base set.
@ITOmarHernandez What sort of thing are you looking for? Some idea of player count, play style (e.g. competetive vs co-op), thematic vs abstract, etc. might help narrow it down?
@Metebelis2 That is actually a brilliant idea. Draconians are certainly a very New Who friendly concept - it surprises me that neither RTD or Moffat gave them a go. Mind you, it baffles me that they never returned in the classic series either.
Still, I'm not cut up about the Silurians we got in New Who. One of the advantages of being a child of the wilderness years is that I have no major nostalgic attachment to any era. I just love all of it!
@Metebelis2 I've always had mixed feelings about this design. On the one hand, it's certainly more faithful to the classic design, and much creepier as a result. On the other, it would have been more restrictive for performers and as a result we probably wouldn't have gotten Madame Vastra, who is one of my favourite recurring characters of the Moffat era.
Final thoughts on Invasion of the Dinosaurs.
Looking past the charmingly cheap monster effects there's a cracking story here. As usual, Hulke doesn't waste an opportunity to smuggle serious political points in amongst the action and jokes.
Interesting subversion of the DW staple of ark ships, with the ship actually being little more than an underground bunker for the well-meaning (if rather cultish) "passengers".
It's also nice to see Sarah Jane doing some actual journalism!
