  1. About 40 minutes left. Pretty good.

    Some thoughts:

    -Android - easier than you think. Like Brass, there are a few actions you are capable of taking, but the openness of choice can overwhelm people. That, and the fact that you need to keep an eye on people to nail them out of turn keeps you constantly thinking.

    -Glyde - a lazy man's Ebay. In this age, perhaps that's a good thing. Lord knows that eBay could use the competition. However, video games are one of the easiest things to sell on there. Like DVDs or books, punch in the barcode and it brings up a pre-made info sheet. Add the condition of the game, and a blurb about S&H, and you're done. Buy yourself a padded envelope for shipping, charge a flat rate of like $4 and send it via Media Mail. You can even steal a pic online to use. Easy peasy.

    Granted, the ebay/paypal fees are higher, but I get my money immediately after the sale. Also, since they are owned by the same company, there's more protection there. Plus, you're going to hit the most eyes possible. The stores usually charge more than you (I start everything I sell at $0.95), and are always listed below the auctions.

    -Gaming pads - love how we all have a story related to using a school's computer lab. We used to take over a 30 PC, glass-walled off section of UW-Parkside's lab on the weekends to play Warcraft 2 and Master of Orion 2; good times.

  2. Jon, your work on the table has reinvigorated me to get to work on the WotR minis. I just listened to most of the podcast while trimming flash from Nazgul. They're now sitting in the basement black primer drying off and they already look awesome. Can't wait to start painting them.

    I may have a new hobby to entertain me on Tuesdays while people stand around and gab instead of gaming.
