    #Gamergate and all things SJW

    Because I'm literally a Horatio Alger poster child. My parents were immigrants, although I was born here. We lived in abject poverty most of our childhood. Both my brother and I did really well in school. I went to UCLA on a full scholarship as a UC Regent scholar. My brother went to Cal...

    #Gamergate and all things SJW

    Guessing huh? That's not exactly a hallmark of critical thinking. Even at your low estimates, that would still be millions of dollars in salary every year. Now I ask you.....do you think that money is well spent? How is that money furthering student education? And could that money be better...

    #Gamergate and all things SJW

    I graduated from UCLA many moons ago, and the change is staggering whenever I revisit the campus. Lithose doesn't need to post, but I'm happy to link my alma mater's "Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion" section. UCLA Equity, Diversity & Inclusion – Build equity for all. Look under "About". There...

    Board Games

    I think Dice Throne and Clank are both great suggestions. My gf also isn't into board games nearly as much as I am, but she has gotten to enjoy them more and those are 2 of her favorites. I know you said you didn't like coops, but her favorite game is Aeon's End, something to consider. If you...

    So this just launched. I have always heard good things about Nemesis, but I never got a chance to get a copy as this game was super expensive to buy on the secondary market since there hasn't been a reprint until now. This is for Nemesis: Lockdown, which I guess is a standalone sequel...

    Got my FedEx notice for S&D as well, it has an estimated delivery date of 5/28, so hopefully will be in my hands next week.

    The Division 2

    Personally, I always run the daily PvE quest. That usually involves running a mission, donating 50 supplies, and doing like 3 side quests in a certain zone. Also you have to kill named, but doing the mission usually takes care of that. I like doing bounties because they are fairly easy to...

    Board Games

    Speaking as a businessman, that is not a sustainable model, especially for a small company or an individual. That is too many SKUs for starters. Also, the reason the $150 big box is available for $150 is because they are contracted to print a certain number of units.....usually in the...

    The Division 2

    I'm personally still enjoying the game, even despite it's limitations. Graphically, I think it's really good for an open world type game. I'm always blown away by the small details. You can wander around the streets for hours and find little details that really immerse you into the game. I...

    Gloomhaven

    I want to be in, but I'm still trying to finish up my GH with my group. We are probably 10-12 scenarios from finishing. We play once a week at best, 1-2 scenarios at a time, so it will be a few months until we finish. Then we still have Forgotten Circles to go through, and then maybe Jaws of...

    This is for deadbeats. You're point #2 is off. These are for people who already can't/won't pay child support. Their wages are garnished. If you have been keeping up with your child support payments, you still get your $1200. If you haven't been supporting your child, then I don't have much...

    Gloomhaven

    Although I do agree tanking is completely unnecessary in Gloomhaven, I would disagree that the Brute sucks at it. Really, there are probably only 2 classes in the entire game that can tank, the Brute and the Sun. I played Brute as my first character as a tank, and he did just fine. Although...

    Gloomhaven

    I would NOT advise each playing two classes, especially when you are just starting out. The game is quite involved, and it takes a few games in to get a feel for all the game mechanics. With each of you playing a single character, that should be plenty since the game scales really well with...
