Sorry for the long delay, here is the next episode...

I have kept the hosting list in the same alphabetical order despite subbing for Mr. Sleep, since it's easiest to maintain alphabetical order without mixups.

In the wonderful game, Bonaparte at Marengo, this is how to get nasty Frenchies out of a village.

Brother Jim had a question last time about which "grail" games we've recently added to our collection, which I enjoyed.

I'd like to dig deeper into Grails, there are some interesting related discussion questions.

Leading off,
How do you define a grail game?

We know which grails people have recently added, from last time.

But, which grails are still out there?
What are your currently unowned grail games?

Do you think the concept and more importantly the process of acquiring grail games has changed with the advent of the internet?
How so?
If so, for the better or not?

Pick 3 currently OOP (and currently relatively expensive) games to be re-printed at reasonable prices.

Clarification that would differentiate this from simply your grail games:

This could be games you do own, but that you feel would be nice for other gamers to have access to.

Or, games that are OOP but not necessarily your "grail" games - just relatively highly priced for "what they are" due to OOP. Maybe lighter games, games that might be in your collection if they were available for a more reasonable price.
