Research Does Not Always Mean Playing Games …

But it usually does. I’ve done a lot of “research” over the years, and much of it translated into actual design theory. However, especially when playing Civilization until 5 in the morning, gaming can be even more fulfilling than research πŸ™‚ However, I think I have learned what I need to from many of the games in my collection, and it is time to rehome them. Before I do so, however, I was going to give friends a chance to grab the ones they want. If you are interested in any of these before I put them on eBay, just comment here.
