And yet no one's asked me which one I'm in.

I wondered if there really could've been that many mass shooting incidents in the US in 2020.

Well, Wikipedia lists 614 incidents that fit their chosen criteria (some are family
murder-suicides, which I'd guess most people wouldn't think about in this context).

Those Post-Left Hoppean Absolute Neoaccelerationists can keep their stuff - nobody wants it.

Don't post your stuff - put it in the wiki. (Then it can be erased once it's gone.)

(For those of you who aren't Lakewood residents, "FreeBay" is a feature of a local circular in which you can list...)

If you want to learn this game, click here. (That won't teach you how to read the
cards, but on BoardGameArena, you can just mouse over them for the details.)

Yours is like this one?

Currently free on EGS:


Wikipedia: The story centers on Arid, an artificial intelligence installed in a technologically-advanced combat space suit, as she
navigates a decaying industrial facility in search of medical attention for the suit's injured pilot with traditional adventure game
elements requiring found items and unlocked skills to progress the story, along with 2D cover-based shooting.

Quote from: Wikipedia
Later, Herg made corrections to Tintin's actions, for example, replacing Tintin's dynamiting
of a rhinoceros with an incident in which the rhino accidentally discharges Tintin's rifle


Would more info help?

Ticket to Ride
The board is a map of the US with colored routes between cities. Players have cards showing sets of cities they
must connect by the end of the game, scoring or losing points if they do or don't. Turns are mostly spent getting
colored cards or spending them to occupy routes on the board with their trains. Tension is present from the get-go.

Players place square tiles onto a grid-board to form a path for them to move along,
trying not to go off the edge or collide with other players. Not a deeply strategic game.

BANG! The Dice Game
If you're familiar with BANG!, this has the same roles but a shorter play time,
and uses dice rather than cards to determine what you can do on your turn.

Star Realms
A deck-building game is one in which each player has a small personal deck of cards that they cycle through
and which they can modify during the game, mostly by adding better cards to it. Star Realms is among the
shortest of these. Use spaceships and space stations in 4 flavors to kill the other player before they kill you.

Sushi Go!
A very simple card-drafting game. Much as you might imagine if you're a sports fan, you choose one of
the cards you're holding to keep and pass the rest to the next player, but you're all doing that at once.

Risk: Plants vs Zombies
A 2-player version of Risk with the theme of PvZ. Also includes a second game played on a board resembling
the lawn from the video game and using some different components, still with Risk-style dice-throwing combat.

The players build the board as the game goes along. There's bamboo that can be grown and a panda that can
eat it. No one owns anything. Points are scored by fulfilling cards in your hand that want parts of the board built
a certain way, bamboo grown a certain way in particular places, or the panda to eat certain colors of bamboo.
