Good Idea, Bad Idea: Mandatory Pacifism
In my last Good Idea, Bad Idea I talked about random maps. This got me thinking about the mechanics of board games. Today I’m going to talk about two board games: Settlers of Catan and...
Wow, Destructoid is in rare form today. Ever since that Gamefaqs kid burned down the church we've had a firestorm of controversy. Here is the time line as best I understand it.

About Jorvik One of us since 5:26 PM on 12.23.2007
I live in Maine.
I like playing in the snow.
I love playing video games. Especially retro games, but I appreciate modern ones as well. The first game I ever played was Pool of Radiance back in the 80s. After saving the city of Phlan I was hooked for life. But Link to the Past remains the greatest game ever.
Currently shmups have displaced RPGs in my gaming life, but I still have a soft spot for Chrono Trigger.
I like Euroboard games. Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan, Bohnanza, Samurai, these are fine things.
Random Fact: I am a curmudgeonly old man who studies English grammar in his spare time. Someday I aspire to write good.
