I used to know people who were very into historical (and detailed) board games.
Having said that, the only thing I can say about this is "HOLY MOTHER OF CATS!"
Playing time with 10 players is listed at 1200 hours.
That's for 2 teams, 5 people per team. I understand that, in terms of the game, Italian troops require an extra unit of water per turn, because they subsisted largely on pasta. Even I am not this nerdy.
I finally wrote down my experience of using an rss reader for the first time. As big as the internet is, I can't find a single web page that explains (very well, at all) why someone should use rss (not that mine qualifies). If anyone knows of others, I'd like to hear about them. I'll link out to them.
Since my earlier music site idea, I've been furiously building a new music recommendation site (with the help of certain plurib.us readers). It's about feature-complete, and I now recommend that you all use it. IMHO, it's fantastically useful.
