Re: Travel advice/questions

Gent in Belgium, as a less theme-parky alternative to Brugge. Gent has an Industrial Revolution museum with lots of 19th century factory equipment, it used to be the centre of the Belgian textile industry. Confirming that Gent is awesome!

Re: I need a Game Recommendation

Can anyone think of games occurring in Paris during La Belle Epoque i.e. 1871-1914? Some sort of mystery or adventure game maybe? Available platforms right now are PC, android phone, or Wii U. Aviary attorney is set a little earlier (1848) but it's a lot of fun. It's an ace attorney style game with...

Re: Meta Mafia II: Day Three

I've become increasingly suspicious of Wam. I don't like his progress on mark and he was a little too enthusiastic to doubt his read on me.

Jimbob pushed me on my logic, but wam's doubt is based purely on the 'slip' without even thinking.
