    That's the sort of vacation that people with kids view with envy. Glad you had a good time.

    Sounds like a blast. Board games I played over the Thanksgiving weekend:

    Arkham Horror
    Kremlin (Man, I love this game. It's long out of print, so I only get to play it when I visit my New England cousins.)

    I also got to flip through my cousin's ancient copy of Car Wars, including sheets of loose-leaf paper decorated with junior-high-era illustrations of his characters.

    Envious I am.

    Andrew, Kremlin is on the short list of my favorite games (and there's a blog idea for me..) I used to play every New Years Eve when I was in Germany. I was nearly exiled to Siberia for my lack of knowledge of the Russian anthem.

    I spent Thanksgiving weekend introducing my sister & her husband to Agricola & Dominion.

    Oh, and I still have all that old Car Wars stuff. I also found an old binder full of my (totally not Marvel rip off) Champions characters. My brother and I created a whole pantheon of heroes and villains for that game. Awesome old memories!

    Rudy's! I love their sauce and their creamed corn. Their turkey is also worth checking out.

    As for games, I've owned and have wanted to play Automobile for a while now. It sounds excellent. You really should try Brass, Ezra.

    This holiday I *finally* got to play Die Macher. Wow. What a beast. Great game. We lightened it up after that with games of Dungeonquest, Prophecy and Runebound. Yeah, it got geeky.
