Wait, I could have played Munchkin instead?

Be honest, mentally you were playing Munchkin.

Mentally I was wondering how the Master of Orion board game would play.  :P

Most of your intel reports did seem to reference MoO.

Anyone doing an AAR on those sessions? That would make some interesting reading.

Sir, we think the Klackons have three T-72s coming in from the north. They are most likely armed with HE rounds, ion pulse beams, or graviton beams.

Not sure if they're are any AARs planned, but the session I was in was very, very cool. I could give a broad overview, but I was pretty focused on running the air assets and didn't follow a lot of the details of the other decision makers. It's interesting how you can get tunnel vision for your particular mission. There wasn't a ton of air for me to manage, but it definitely kept me fully occupied.

And this was the priceless intel we got from Mike :P

Next year, perhaps. Did BB mention the text I sent him? Heh-heh.
Not that I recall.

Pfft, 2014? That's, like, two years ago or something.

And who's this Jim Zabek guy anyway??
