big red X


So the Christmas present I'd really been waiting for, a high-quality Mesomorph Games wooden Piecepack arrived.

I always prefer to check things like that to make sure all the parts are there- especially if there are sixty parts, any of which can be lost. I sorted the tiles into suits- null through five of each suit, all there. Checked the pawns- one of each color, all four there. Pawn saucers? Check. Dice? Yep. Coins?

Well, at least I had 24 of them. Too bad that two of them were the 5 of Crowns and none of them were the 5 of Arms.

Damn. It'll be a few more days, then, before I can play with the set, so they can send a replacement piece...
