It's not just Saturday... It's long-weekend Saturday. Short of full-on "Vacation Saturday," this is the best kind of Saturday. Just time to do aaaaall the things. What, exactly?... I've not relaly figured that out yet. But I'm sure it'll end up being something... or it'll be nothing, and that's just fine, too.

Today we have: Machina Arcana 2nd Edition, Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Carthago, Dungeon Draft, Ticket to Ride: First Journey, Agra, Ruthless, Blitz Bowl, Lost Cities: Rivals, Root, Clank! The Mummy's Curse, Thieves Den, and The Edge: Downfall.
