The Most Epic Settlers Game
I spent three days of this week working at Empire Farm Days in Ovid NY. It is the biggest show that ThisWarmHouse does every year, and unlike the others, it's just close enough to commute. My Dad and I woke up around six each morning and made the two hour drive through Elmira, past Seneca Lake, and then up to the huge field where the show is held.
It was pretty slow the first day, and on top of that we forgot to bring any chairs, which means it was a really, really long day. The second day was very busy though, and the third day, which in the past has been slower, was almost as busy as the second, which kind of made up for the first. So in the end it was a good show.
When I finally got home yesterday I was really tired... something about waking up early, standing in the hot sun all day, and talking to dozens of people is exhausting. I probably should have gone to bed, but instead I went to the Bible Study that Josh, Patrick, and sometimes some other people do in Wellsboro and Dunkin Donuts. Thomas, an old friend of mine, was there, and he brought Settlers of Catan Cities & Knights Expansion. After reading through Acts 8 and discussing it for an hour and a half or so, we headed up to Patrick's house and played what turned into what I believe we all agreed was the most epic game of settlers ever.
