Ragnar Ramblings

by Susan Rozmiarek

There were a few snippets of interest in the Latest ramblings from the Gaming Parlour on the Ragnar Brother’s website.

“Sales are going well for ‘Viking Fury’ and Alea games may be showing some interest.”

Okay, so maybe that doesn’t mean much because I imagine that Alea looks at a lot of games, but dare I hope? Viking Fury is one of my favorite releases of the past year, and I would dearly love to see it get the widespread attention it deserves along with a nice, fancy, German quality edition.

The other interesting snippet is a variant for Euphrat & Tigris that gives players the choice of either drawing a tile from the bag or choosing one of three face-up tiles. I’ve never had a problem with the luck element of drawing from the bag myself, but if a variant such as this puts a lid on some of the general whining then it might be a good thing.

Interesting and witty site. I will have to check it out more often.

They finally decided the three-tiles variant does not work, because of analysis paralysis. It was a good account of a playtest though...

The gallery has been very frustrating for me recently. It sort of works and some of the albums work, but others don't. In a hopes of fixing it, I recently upgraded to the most recent version of the Gallery software. It fixed some things and broke others. I'm currently at a loss of what to do. I have asked on the Gallery forums but I have gotten absolutely no replies. I don't know if it's a software, data or host issue.

Bummer - I use Gallery on my site as well, and even the latest version is fairly klugey. If you mess something up, there's no easy "undo"
