Re: MTG?

There's a reasonably healthy MTG community in St Andrews. We play every wednesday night, mostly casual multiplayer, although a few of us dip our toes into more competitive games. There are about 10 players total, although you can expect to see about 5-6 playing on a Wednesday night at WARSoc. We als...

Re: Evangelists

Yeah, he caught me in St Mary's Quad. He reeled out all the typical fundamentalist arguments against evolution when I let it be known that I was a neuroscientist - including that marvelous misconception that somehow big bang theory relates to evolution. I chatted to him for a bit - let him have his ...

Re: Games/Comics Shop opening in Kirkcaldy

I suspect people are most likely to go wherever they can get what they want for the cheapest and least inconvenience. Personally I've either shopped in Dundee, or in Edinburgh when Dundee has failed to have what I wanted. But then I have a car, making such trips relatively easy. I have no idea what ...

Re:

I think I'm veering down the line of "constructed tournaments will separate the casual players from the more serious players". And by that I mean that you'll have one person who has loads of cards (me), perhaps one or two people who can be bothered to go online and look at what's good in whichever f...

Re:

Something that was quite successful a few years back (Kamigawa time) was a sealed environment tournament that lasted several weeks. Everyone paid for a starter and a couple of boosters, and then played using those cards for a few weeks. Because it was a fairly loose tournament (i.e. people could pla...

Re:

I don't think people wanting to roleplay away from the main Wednesday night WARSoc meeting is necessarily a bad thing. It's always been the case that some people couldn't do Wednesday nights - or the mood in the Salad Bowl wasn't right for a particular game. Before there was any significant means of...

Re:

You've got me intrigued as to who you are now. There is a Vanities-paradigm game running on Saturdays at the moment - although it's table-top (ish) because there aren't enough players for a LARP this summer. It's set in N. Africa (alternating between Tunis/Carthage and Marrakech mostly) and is an El...

Talking of "Heartbeats" and balls bouncing down a hill - has anyone seen a very similar advert with the same music for Tango - or did I just dream it? I've only seen it once, and only the end, but I'm fairly sure it's real. And to stay on topic, all badly dubbed adverts should be removed from my scr...

Re:

Back when I were a lad, it was called GLAS - the Gay and Lesbian Awareness Society. If Dickie is the Dickie that I think he is, then he should be old enough to remember that as well.

Of course, I could be wrong. On both counts.

Perhaps it's worth remembering that people who work in the service industry in general are overworked and underpaid.
