  • Okay, that works (and I should read all the way to the bottom of the threads before posting replies). Happy to have you on Friday night Cavan, playtest should start at 8 pm not 7 as I am on a later ferry. Brian --- In BottosCon@^$1, Cavan Cunningham wrote: > > Never thought of that.

  • I sent out rules and play aids to the seven folks who expressed an interest in demoing A Distant Plain. Yesterday I took delivery of a beautiful playtest map! Unless things change, I will be taking the 5 PM ferry over on Friday, so the start of the Friday demo session will have to be pushed back to about 8 PM ... I had Jay White, Ralph Shelton, Wilhelm Fitzpatrick and Doug Cooley...
