More cardboard...and the NBA

Today's weird combo post is about that boardgame I mentioned a couple of days ago, Here I Stand, which is about the Protestant Reformation. I'm still reading the rulebook but if this era of history interests you (it should, it's cool) then you need to check out this game report over at Fortress Ameritrash. This will give you an idea of how the game plays. It sounds fascinating, actually.

In other, completely unrelated news, it looks like the NBA and NCAA are adopting a new age policy wherein you need to be 20 years old before going to the league. This will start in 2012 or so. The question remains -- will surefire elite talent play in college for two years or just to overseas? Would have been nice for this rule to have been around when Oden, Conley, and Cok were at OSU. Well, nice from my perspective at least.
