So very long...
I think I vaguely remember you. ;D
Great! Keep it up
WOO! Even closer now! (stop what?)
:/ (awkward silence)
Good. We played it again last week with more players this time, though still not the max amount I made it for. It went a lot better, but there's still some stuff that needs fixing. Like the length. It just lasts too long, but I've already got something to fix that.
My friends took the opportunity to misinterpret every little thing they could xD so we could find all the loopholes. We still haven't gone through all the cards I have, though, and that's a problem. Can't fix everything unless we've done that. Better news is that my stats are good as they are now. They were terribly unbalanced the first time around, but I managed to fix that for the 2nd play. Just have to write the new numbers on all the cards now (we used sheets I printed with the new stats because I didn't feel like changing them on the cards in case they were still wrong. the sheets were inconvenient though)
I also made up 2 new characters to use, but I've left them out for now.
They just popped up in my head.
It was fun. There's lots to see and do. The food was great too. Problem is that if you get a guide, you don't get much freedom. :/ They have quotas to fill and also have a tendency to send you to tourist-trap shops.
But I don't have any regrets, aside from the last evenings' dinner. It was the only time we didn't eat Chinese, it was at the hotel in a Russian/Uzbekistan restaurant. I had chicken, and I got to meet the same chicken again at night in the bathroom. Kept me up all night and sick for the entire trip home. Didn't eat during that time (except an ice cream. It actually helped my stomach) Weird thing is that we're now 3 weeks past that and my eating patterns still haven't completely gone back to normal. I get hungry less then I used to (which I welcome, because I should lose weight)
It's an interesting country though. It's not as poor as people like to think, but it does have heavy problems. They have hundreds of giant skyscraper projects (for which they evict people) that in the end go uninhabited because people can't afford them. And there are a lot of young people who want to get out. Our first guide was about my age and she was incredibly interested in my cousin (he went with us)
Until she found out he was married. xD But she actually told him to let her know if his marriage goes south xD
Man, I'm wall of texting again.
