John Colledge spotted the omissions Tony mentions above (and I also did
a few proof reads of my own - I like to leave it a few days if I can
between proof reading).
I'm sorry to hear Eamon has not been well. Without him the UK board
gaming scene would be very very different - we'd all be rolling dice and
looking at charts, playing games that takes 6 or 7 hours. OK,
eventually someone would have discovered German games I guess, but so
far as I am aware Eamon was the trailblazer.
As for RR, quite simply it cannot be allowed to die. I'll send Eamon an
e-mail and see if he would be prepared to sell it to Fiendish Games
although from what I heard, the money David Watts was asking for the
"franchise" was prohibitive. Not so much the money as the fact he was
insisting on including all kinds of paraphernalia in the sale - storage
units and what have you.
Maybe a licensing deal would be more appropriate. Anyway, that's not
really the problem of this board.
