Since I'm in the big city this weekend and saw a mall, I thought I might find a game store and pick up Settlers of Catan.

Four game stores and not one had board games!


Teh intranetz is the best place to buy games- seems "brick and mortar" game shops are going the way of the dodo.

Not sure if you're interested, but I found a Catan PC game. You can download it for free to try it.

And there is Catan online for playing against others online:

I got a hobby shop in my neck of the woods that is run by nice folks, one time I had to wait 30 minutes for her husand to arrive with the rest of a shipment with a product i happened to wonder in and ask about. So after hanign gout looking at stuff chatting with the boss, he shows up AND THEN she gives me 5$ off (of a 30$ game) 16% off for using 30 min I would have wasted anyway, and had fun during, she wouldn't be talked down either. That store always gets my business for games and such if I can help it.

You'll not find board games in a video game store.

One time, I played Scrabble with Panacea.
It's dangerous to play against a biology teacher.

And it's dangerous to play "Operation" against a med student...
