- Food Stamp Variant!!??!! omg... if only 'twer tru.. Since I work at

Well, my motive is that I've been trying to get members of my family
into this game, and I get no nibbles on my bait. Even buttered
popcorn won't convince 'em (the real stuff, not the cardboard tasting

get at least some of my money's worth out of the game, I was hoping
to find Settlers fans at Pennsic... But, I'm not sure Pennsic people
are into it ... at Pennsic anyway.
I've never played cities and knights, only the original Settlers game.
