Thanks for the info. That would get pricey and over $7/meeple.

My woodwork skills are complete **** but I guess I need to work on them to make this happen.

So I bought a couple sets of these as well and I would like to buy some super size meeples for these. Does anyone have an idea where to buy super sized meeple sets that would work well with these tiles. I am thinking four player version only: Blue, Green, Red, Yellow.

Thanks in advance.

Found out that I forgot to include "Rising Sun". I edited my list on previous page to include it. :)

Wow! Do you have 274.5 games in total? :o
283 actually. Down from the high water mark a few years ago of 450

I believe you only listed 32 out of the 33 unplayed games. :P

Ha. I will check my list :)

That's a great ratio. Your shelf is smaller than mine and with a much much better percentage!

You've got Lyngk to look forward to!  I'm a big fan of it, Gipf and Yinsh too!

The whole GIPF Series is great; I wish more locals people were into abstract games.

Bixby,

I added you in Untapped.  You definitely have me beat in beers.

Added you too. Cheers. :)

A merit to Bixby for sharing his many passions with us. It looks like you've had some very fun times. I'm learning to play darts at the moment...I'm not very good and it takes me a good 5-10 minutes to warm up.  Good luck with your convention next year. Please share some photos with us :)

Thanks Decar. I certainly will share some photos.

I may not be on the site much these days, but I sure enjoying reading this thread.

Very festive indeed kettlefish, looks like you are in full swing for the season. I wish I had artistic talents. I have to be satisfied admiring what other people create. :)

stalcupojoy that is amazing. Music is such a large part of my life; alas I gave up trying to make music, but I sure enjoy listening to it. You must find that to be a very rewarding pursuit. Music can sooth the soul.



You all have inspired me to post about my hobby pursuits, so here is a rambling list...

(1) I love Premium Craft Beer. I have tried many styles and types of beer. I log all of my beer exploits using the UNTAPPD app:
https://untappd.com/user/Bixby

(2) Boardgames are still the #1 hobby of course. I assist SaskGames.com with social media and hobby outreach by posting pictures on Instagram:

(3) I have been running a Texas Hold'em Poker League for about 12 years. I won the league in 2014 and again this year so that helps to keep me motivated. :)



(4) We go on an annual canoe trip to Northern Saskatchewan. It is a soul charging adventure and a wonderful trip with friends:




(5) I like to build Inuksuks on my travels. Something very zen like when you are stacking rocks on the shore:




(6) Fundraising to help the Homeless.
My wife and I host a lot of gatherings at our house. Many of them our boardgame functions, some are focused on other things. We try to have a lot of fun and use these as opportunities to raise money for the homeless. This is done with under our Play with Your Food team - "Game for a Change". Here is some information about that pursuit here:
https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1655280/local-boardgame-charity-event-raises-over-42000

Here are some pictures of the functions we have held:

BixCON Summer Sizzle Lobster Boil:



Scotchy Scotch Scotch - Scotch Tasting:



Annual Darts Tournament:


(7) We occasionally go on a backpacking trip. Great to get away from it all:



( 8 ) I used to do some trail riding on my Mountain Bike. Need to do more of this:



(9) We try to get out snowshoeing a few times each winter when there is enough snow:



(10) And finally, I am trying to plan my first large event next year. I love planning events so it only makes sense that I try my hands at something bigger than gatherings at our house.


Okay, that list turned out longer than I thought it would. That is what happens when I ramble.

I hope everyone is fine and is prepared for a peaceful Christmas season of games with family and friends.
Cheers,
Matt
