I'm interested, Lori, but I'm a little too far away, I'm afraid.  :D

The bottom one would be hilarious if it weren't so painfully close to home.

Very nice - that's how my wife probably feels. Except she has to live with me!  :D

Great CBC New article...
...the struggle is real.  :lol
Please sign me up for Mombasa.  :)
Sweet - please sign me up for Dead of Winter: The Long Night! I was disappointed I missed it while I was away so happy to see you're bringing it out again. :D
Sorry about the short notice but something's come up and I have to cancel for tonight. Please remove me from Caylus.
I'll give Caylus a try. Please sign me up.
I'm going to bring out the Spiel des Jahres nominee Imhotep. It's an area control/area influence game where players are Egyptian builders building pyramids and other monuments. You load blocks onto your sleds, load up the boats and then try to get your blocks where you'd like them to be. But since anyone can move any boat that can be tricky (so there's also a lot of take-that).

This is a family weight game so anyone can play.

I'll also bring out Animals On Board which is a fun filler. It's an I-pick/you-choose game with set-collection and a silly theme (you're competing with Noah to get animals on your arks though not in pairs because Noah trademarked that).

Super quick, light and it's a Spiel des Jahres recommended game this year, too.

Please sign me up for Alchemists - it's been a while since my brain has melted and it's due.  :D
I've been curious about Sherlock, too. Please add me if you have room (I read it plays up to 8 but wasn't sure if that's preferred).
