I'm doing some work up here in McHenry, IL and I stopped by the Gaming Goat. I met Jexik face to face. His exceptional sales skills forced a copy of Klask upon me. I was rendered helpless as he pillaged my bank account. The Goat is a nice little place and I wish him all the best in the coming holiday season!
Thanks guys! I appreciated seeing you both over the last couple months.
I ended up swapping today for Friday, so I won't be in tonight. If Jake had had a shorter dinner with his people we might have gotten a game in. I'm glad he came by and we got to talk a bit. Warm and genuine. Despite being tall,* he loves miniatures. In addition to Klask, he got a couple of those dragons for Arcadia Quest (a game I've yet to play but really think I'd dig), and even cracked one open to show what it looked like and how chunky it was. After hearing about the dragon in Super Dungeon Explore, I was surprised to find that it had as many parts to it as Mimring in Heroscape.
*He's clearly tall enough to be able to retire tomorrow if he got $100 for every time someone asked how tall he is or what sports he plays. So I didn't.
