S7R2 request

Post by sydney » Mon Mar 13, 2017 3:02 pm

I'd like to request that the game played in round two of season seven be selected from only Meteors and Galactic Firebird. The reason for this is we recently lost Gary Forest and these two games are among his favourites. He and I played Meteors for hours at every ABug meet and he introduced me to Galactic Firebird - a game which is now a firm favourite of mine. I think it would be a good way to pay tribute to him by doing something he himself thoroughly enjoyed.

That's a lovely idea, Sydney, and a fitting tribute. I'd be happy to have either as the next game. Galactic Firebird is definitely worth some greater exposure.

I don't know how I missed this but since I missed it last time, let's do this and pay tribute to Gary this round.....I saw reference to this and it didn't make sense to me.... retired, blind and missing stuff....

ok, the game is Galactic Firebird.......done with a coin toss.

Ed...... :-)
