Definitely buying this.

However, I figure I need about £140 and so far I have £6 in the gaming tin. The gaming tin goes up by £1 a week.

By my reckoning, that means 134 weeks to go before I can buy it. That's just over 2.5 years. But it's coming.

I always fancied getting the board game but it always beyond my financial reach. So I am not going to miss out on this. I am so looking forward to playing World in Flames. I have been for a very long time.

Best wishes,
Steve

How I solved this dilemma:


"How would you like to pay?"

(types credit card number) "Eventually..."


With apologies to Iain M Banks and my bank manager.

AbwehrX,

I tried Vassal and the World in Flames module a little while back but I could never work out how to play it. Gave up in frustration. I shall wait for the Matrix version.

Best wishes,
Steve

Tried the credit card route with Distant Worlds. I did not end well.

I think I shall stick to the £1 a week method for World in Flames. Seems safer to me.

Best wishes,
Steve

The good news is that the gaming tin now stands at £7.

The bad news (for WIF) is that with Ralph back on development of 3.5 and the hint of a promise of TOAW IV not that far away, I shall be using some of my stash for that. I figure this has put back my acquisition of World in Flames by another 50 weeks. So 133 + 50 = 183 weeks. And that is about 3.5 years away.

Therefore, my Quest for world domination will likely begin somewhere around 15 May 2017.

Thank you for your attention.

Best wishes,
Steve

Well, the gaming tin has hit the £8 mark. Only 182 weeks away now.

Getting close all the time.

Best wishes,
Steve

The gaming tin now stands at £9. And then .... Slitherine & Matrix announce the holiday sale....

So far, I am resisting the urge. I figure that as I am aiming to become the sole ruler of the planet, I need to show some dedication to purpose. 181 weeks until my quest for world domination begins...... Be afraid.....

Best wishes,
Steve

While I am doing the washing...

The gaming tine now stands at a massive £10. So 180 weeks to go before my quest for world domination begins.

You can be assured that when my legions of terror have conquered the world, I shall not be doing my own washing. I shall have dusky maidens doing all the household chores - oh yes.

Best wishes,
Steve

But what about the significant other? Has She Who Must Be Obeyed given permission for Dusky Maidens, Cleaning, For The Use Of or not?



I've noticed over the years that significant others generally have problems with that particular approval process

Phil,

The lack of a significant other is why I am doing my own washing.

Only leather-clad dusky maidens need apply.

Best wishes,
Steve

My long march to world domination continues.

The gaming tin now stands at £11 and so 179 weeks to go.

I have been very busy designing the uniforms for my Legions of Terror since they need to look good as they a conquering the world. Also it has become clear that I shall need a secret hideaway to plan my conquests and nefarious plans. Looking round for suitable locations at the moment.

Best wishes,
Steve

Hilarious.

I do hope you speed up the timetable. Seeing you having to wait so long for your undeniable quest to become Earth's Top Dog is excrutiating. Best Wishes!

Well given your current budget, I know of some good cardboard box homes that are cheap I'm sure no one would ever look for a world leader in one of those lol.

You need a very wealthy and understanding significant other that will grease the wheels of your quest.

Numdydar,

And this is part of the problem.

Imagine the arguments it would cause.

Fledgling World Supremo's Wife: Snugglebunnykins, I think we may need some new curtains for the living room.

Fledgling World Supremo: Hmmm?

Fledgling World Supremo's Wife: And you promised to take me shopping for new curtains last week.

Fledgling World Supremo: Not right now dear. I am about to send my legions of terror into Switzerland.

Fledgling World Supremo's Wife: Doesn't Snugglebunykins love his little Apple Blossom anymore?

Fledgling World Supremo: Of course I do! But, you know, it's the Swiss. All those bloody cookoo clocks and whathaveyou. Best if they are enslaved and sent to the salt mines. That'll teach them.

Fledgling World Supremo's Wife: You could always invade silly Swedenland next week.

Fledgling World Supremo: Switzerland. I have already invaded Sweden.

Fledgling World Supremo's Wife: Snugglebunnykins has already invaded Sweden? What about Ikea?

Fledgling World Supremo: Couldn't find that on the map. When I do - I'll invade it.

You get the idea....

Best wishes,
Steve

Well, the gaming tin now stands at £12. This means there are only 178 weeks to go before my quest for world domination begins.

Sadly, my attempt to enslave the known universe may be cut short. I have contracted a life-threating virus that is running rampant through my body and I am slipping away fast. Barely have enough strength to type these few words. I think I might have one more Lemsip, open yet another box of tissues, and retire to bed. It is doubtful if I will survive the night....

Dear Mrs Warspite1,

Thank you for your tender concern over my tragic condition.

As I am sure Mr W can tell you, if you manage to drag him away from the computer, while female-type women people of the opposite sex have nothing worse than a slight snuffle, the male of species has to suffer the most appalling consequences of the this devastating virus.

Managing to survive the night despite being wracked by fever, hacked by a rasping cough, general wheezing, and frequent sneezing, I have reemerged this day as a mere shadow of my former self despite the application of superior will power as befits any would be conquerer of the world.

I am sure this news will be of great comfort to you.

Best wishes,
Steve

Will people please stop trying to get me married off!

Please see the post by Mrs Warspite1 if you need any understanding of why I avoid the female of species like the plague.

Steve
