Damn this cold weather! Damn it to hell!
Note the final Clandestine appearance in Austin is coming up in a week (January 24 & 25; 7:30 and 10:00pm). This is a Friday and Saturday appearance. Based on past experience, I'm thinking the later shows are better (they're cheaper and seem to potentially last longer). I might even do both nights, 'cause hey, it's their last concert, and I'm a Clandestine nut.

More Blokus! Woohoo!
I played Clue The Card Game; it was faster than the boardgame, but felt more chaotic/lucky. I think I prefer the classic version, even if it does take longer. (Of course there's also the Museum Caper version which was quite enjoyable and we should play again.)
An amazing Bluff game as it came down to Steve and MarkY each had 2 dice, and MarkY raised the bid to 3 ones. Steve pondered and raised to 4 ones! MarkY called, and it turned out they both had a one and a star! I don't even remember what happened in the final round for Steve's win, but the successful raise to 4 ones was pretty nifty!
