  1. A handful of capable volunteers with time is enough to expand the game to pretty much anywhere. Unfortunately, that is very rare. There is no innate appetite anywhere. How the games spreads is by working out what people do want and using the game as a vehicle for that. Starting with trying to rely on the inherent appeal of the game results in failure whether it be Swaziland or Swinton.
  2. Ignore them, Phil. They are just not as cutting edge. They are so mainstream.
  3. Thank God! It would have been plain disrespectful to stop the tradition of misspelling his name!
  4. That is often the problem. As soon as something starts to work, someone comes along and changes it to something that is more realistic in their opinion because it worked forty years ago. And buggers it all up.
  5. alright, man.... I get it. Hipster is passé and you are looking beyond that. You still typed that post on a typewriter though. In a Temple Coffee shop*. *You other forumites would not know it, as it is a California chain.
  6. It is rarely I get to agree with Derwent at all, and even more rare to agree with him and Just Browny on the same thread. Anything that is an obscure meat product that you have to get from a butcher rather than Aldi is 'Artisanal' and therefore makes you a hipster. In fact, you would be almost as hipster as Phil. Derwent has shown how this thread should be done.
  7. I think you are right. Parky has set up another sock puppet account, which rather undermines his assertions to be posting in good faith. Man of Kent seems to post on here solely to support Parksider's assertions.
  8. They make a black pudding in Denmark. If you imagine black pudding, but with no flavour, then you have it.
  9. My sister (based in Australia) bought my Mum a bread maker. I do not know why. When my sister visited, she checked out the breadmaker in the kitchen and was perturbed to find my Mum used it to store carrier bags. My Mum's defence that it was really useful for storing carrier bags did not win my sister over.
  10. That would be a fair assessment if the Government had fought off a spurious charge and won. Instead, the Government wanted to do things differently and for no apparent reason to bypass Parliament. I find the last few pages of this thread a little dull, as it has been very one sided. But, the Government has been terrible. Since 2008, most of Europe has had a peaceful time of steadily recovering and unprecedented prosperity. The UK on the other hand has: - Almost lost Scotland - Has wages lower in real terms than ten years ago - Farcically left the EU Much as the one-sideness of this forum means I have been taking less interest, the Conservatives have had incredible good fortune in their timing. The last ten years should have been a time of peaceful, steady improvement, but what a mess it has been.
  11. Strange things that foreigners are impressed by includes hazlet in my experience
  12. That could be uncool or achingly hip.
  13. Cod

    I am seeing a Finnish lady at the moment.
  14. Very well, let us not not upsetting the apple cart immediately and directly.
