    I just slipped into that accent as I started reading, for some reason. I think I was channeling Tiny Attorney from Venture Brothers.

    And yer retailer is quite good; msrp on the Puerto Rico Anniversary Edition is $100. $60 is a dang steal.

    OK, you sold me on Farmageddon. I’m backing the project now. This looks like a nice one to play with family.

    Lee – You’ll enjoy it; it’s definitely a good family game. I see you also backed Fleet – now that’s a good game. We just got the prototype and it is incredibly enjoyable.
