Sounds fun - I'll add it to our game list! Now who is going to come up with the date/s for the game night/s?

If nobody says anything I will hand the task to the person who is listed as bringing the most games, Politzania

Is that the same as regular "FLUXX"? I think I may add "Pit" to my bag as well. That is a loud and fun game with a crowd. I am really looking forward to game nights, especially since I've seen the shows SOOO many times now.

Same concept - just themed to (mostly) the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail! (Grail, grail grail HOOAH!). A few of the Action cards require knowledge of the movie/TV show, but I think it's playable regardless of one's background.

annichan - I figured this is Meghatron 's baby - but if I can put my $.02's worth in - I'd be tempted to just make it an standing get-together, kind of like the Crafter's Cove or the FOG.
Not knowing which shows or other entertainment are scheduled for any given night makes me reluctant to lock down specific dates. How does 2pm (families) and 10pm (adults only) at Diversions sound? If specific groups want to plan for specific games, they can work something out or we just show up & see who brought what.

I have Pirate Fluxx, Space Fluxx, and Zombie Fluxx that I am adding to my bag. I like think those times are great and leaves it open to everyone. I am thinking about bringing some of my Munchkin decks too.

Shuttle to John Wayne Airport (SNA)

Is anyone interested in sharing a shuttle van to John Wayne Airport (SNA) also known as Orange County Airport when we arrive in LA on May 20?

My family has a flight scheduled at 12:10 pm and the van is scheduled to pick us up at the port at 9:00 am. We have room for 4 more passengers.

PM me if you are interested, I will provide more details.

thanks,

Chris

Is Pit the commodities card game? I remember playing that in high school. Lots of fun.

I started the big heavy book but couldn't get too far, just too detailed for me. I did read the Panama Canal by Cruise Ship which is more for tourists so gained enough info for me to be able to understand more.

There should be lectures onboard about the building of the canal. Both PC cruises we have done had them, some geared to adults and one geared to families each time. John went to the adult ones and I went to the family one . They were very good. They were also on the TV at some point. They were given by an ex Panama Canal pilot who also commentated over the PA system during the PC crossing at the interesting times. It was also on the TV so you could see it in your rooms too with more onboard cameras showing what was outside. Cooler and peaceful.

We went on a wonderful Alaska cruise last year. They had Forest Ranger talks and glacier commentary. The kids groups had one too (former MS teacher). I love the educational piece to the cruise.

Someone had indicated that the PC cruise would have something similar. I'm glad you shared what they do, it's going to be great! We are from Northern Illinois, sitting AC when it gets hot will be a good thing too!
