I’m still here!….just not right now

Presuming I have any actual “followers”, I figured I should let you all know that I’m still here even though I haven’t posted anything lately.  Life kind of got in the way for a little while, and my head is a bit twisted currently.  I’m in a pretty deep funk and haven’t as of yet found my path out of it.  I’m hoping that I can kick this thing soon, what with GenCon practically around the corner.

Anyways, this post is pretty worthless, outside of saying that I still plan to write stuff again, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Copac Learns A Game – Praetor

rules

One of my closest gaming friends (Tiffany @IneptGamer Bahnsen) has told me a few times in the past that I’m really good at learning how to play a game cold.  As in, I can open the box, take the rules, and generally within 10-15 minutes, have a solid enough handle on the game to start teaching it.  She gave me a great idea for a blog post.  She picked a game, Praetor by Andrei Novac, that I had no prior knowledge of.  My challenge is to read the rules PDF for it, and document as best I can my process for learning the game.  I have no clue how good this post is going to turn out, it could end up just being a wall of gibberish and text.  But I think it’s a fun challenge and maybe people can glean some tips or trick into how I learn the game.
