My game collection has grown with two new games. I picked up Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation and Balloon Cup from the post office today. They were my reward for translating the Dragon Ball Z card game rules. I’m looking forward to trying Balloon Cup as soon as possible, it seems like a rather interesting game. Confrontation I already know. Both will probably get played Wednesday.
Oh — one thing: you know the new car smell, which is such a delight and an essential part of buying a new car. Well, new game smell isn’t. Most games, which have a distinct smell, smell disgusting. German card games tend to smell bad when they are new. Balloon Cup makes a new record — I know of no other game that smelled so vile.
