Auction Tools Update

I'm very thrilled that my auction tools tool for auctions has been such a well-received success. I went and made a few little tweaks and improvements as noted here.



First, I reworked the page to update on the same page, so you can easily redo your choices without going back and forth between pages.

A new checkbox is added to allow you to suppress images in the final results (if you prefer not to see them).

There are three new tags you can put in the GEEKLIST HEADER to add to the post the date the auction ends as well as the shipping from and to locations. These are freeform text and take everything to the end of the line they are on (one per line as follows):

%SHIPSFROM% Zipcode 90210
%SHIPSTO% USA ONLY
%AUCTIONEND% October 28, 2019 at 11:00pm ET.


These new header options are in addition to the previous ones already there for each geeklist item. Those are the ability to suppress an item (if it's sold or part of a bundle) and the ability to give an item a different display name (again for bundles or "miscellaneous" items).

This results in the following display that can be used in Announcement Posts or in the MetaList for GeekList AUCTIONS.

The Warp Less Travelled

Growing up as a teenager in the 80s, during the heyday of D&D, it was hard not be attracted to the RPG genre. However, I knew early on that fantasy theme with all it’s magic “baggage” was not where my interest lay. Fortunately for me, Mark Miller had created the Traveller series and I of course had a copy of the black book (and later the box set of paperbacks). While I never actually got to play the game, I spent hours reading the rules, rolling up characters and hoping for an opportunity to someday be a Traveller among the stars.

(I also loved that it was spelled with two “L”s as “traveler” just looks weird and seems to violate the rules of English!!!)

Flash forward nearly 40 years and Traveller is making a resurgence of sorts (though it never really went away) with not one but two recently released tabletop games.

The first is Traveller Customizable Card Game: Two Player Starter Set from Horizon Games (III). This comes in a base game two-player starter set as well as expansion packs of ship decks and themed cards. But fortunately, the game comes with three solo scenarios in the box and two more already available for download. In this unboxing video I reveal the contents without preconception of what the cards mean.



The second game to come out (after a successful Kickstarter and troubled fulfillment) is Traveller Ascension: Imperial Warrant by Daring Play. This tabletop strategy game comes ready for two players (and has expansions to increase player count to four or six). While not readily soloable, the hope is that solo rules will be developed either officially or by the community in the very near future (of our timeline, not the in-game one).



Have already played a round of the CCG and a playthrough video is forthcoming. The plan is to do something similar for Imperial Warrant.

Be sure to subscribe on YouTube to make sure you don’t miss out on these and other gaming videos.

Decided to make a smaller board so that Firefly: The Game wouldn't be quite such a table hog.

If I'm doing my math right, it will be midnight in France at 6:00pm EST, which means in a little over six hours from now the polls will close in the The 2018 Picture of the Year contest contest.

The winner is pretty much set, but 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place are locked in a very tight race with a slim two points separating the pack...



My entry using the critters from Everdell is right in the thick of it. Again, vote for mine if you like it, but of course vote for all the photos that you like. But please like mine and vote for it.

TICK TOCK TICK TOCK TICK TOCK..

Thanks!!!

The The 2018 Picture of the Year contest is now underway. Amid many wonderful images, I've entered my "prizewinning" (August 2018) shot of "Everdell Road" into the contest.



It features the animeeples from one of 2018's best games Everdell by designer James A. Wilson and publisher Starling Games (II).

Voting in the contest is easy. Just visit the geeklist by January 31 and thumb all the images you like best. You can get directly to my entry HERE as well.

Thanks for your consideration!

Previously on 24... The Dice Tower Was Top of the Heap

As expected for the last several months, weeks, days, and hours, guild #24 (The Dice Tower) has fallen from the top spot on BGG and been replaced by that "Isle of Misfit Toys" known as the 1 Player guild



The 1PG is proof that solo gaming isn't the realm of (just) the anti-social, basement dwellers we've been painted out to be. But (mostly) mentally stable, friendly, folks who have to manage their time and responsibilities, yet still find time to enjoy the board gaming hobby as much (if not now more) than the more social-dependent gamers.

There is room for gamers of all types, even if you dislike their choices.

Be tolerant. You cannot agree with everyone.
