A sad tale of fiscal responsibility

The kickstarter edition Coup went on sale for a single day this week. Apparently the publisher got a few more copies that he thought were destroyed so he put them on Amazon.

I have convinced people to play it at work using a PnP copy, and it is fairly popular. I wanted to buy it, but I had no more fun money for the month. I came up with a plan to buy it with credit card reward points. Unfortunately, when I ordered the Amazon gift card it ended up coming in the next day, after all the copies has already sold. :(

Fortunately I convinced a co-worker to buy it, so it is not like I will have to wait till it is printed for real to play with a legitimate copy.

Someone at work also said that they wanted to bring in Bohnanza, which I wholeheartedly approve of (resistance has been overplayed quite a bit, so any other fun game seems that much better.)

I have some dancing robot animations under way. They already dance based on what moves you are performing, but they don't lose parts, and the animations are still pretty simple. I will post a link when I have something more to show.

Also, I'll be playing games with Dave tonight, so perhaps we will talk about art when that happens. Who knows?
