Borgamo: The Best Board Game Site Ever

Have you visited Borgamo yet today? No? What’s wrong with you? It’s the best site for board games around. You can find information, pictures and places to buy games all wrapped up in an ultra-slick layout.

I must especially recommend the Ticket to Ride page. It’s got a lot of good info and a great quick explanation of the game, which is perfect for a noob like you.

I’ve also made a couple of TTR maps, one of which is for Ticket to Ride: India. It’s not perfect yet, but I’m fairly proud of it. Here’s a thumbnail.

Here is a ZIP file with the full-sized map and route cards: Ticket to Ride India.

If anyone else has made custom Ticket to Ride maps, I’d love to hear about them. I’m having a hard time figuring out the correct size to print mine out, so I would welcome any help.

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the GEICO cavemen (if not the company they promote). Not only are the commercials consistently hilarious in an of themselves, they’ve created an entire reality for themselves in just a few short TV ads.

Now, they’ve expanded that reality and put in online. Just check out the depth of the Caveman’s Crib.

The caveman comes out and chats with you, and then you’re free to explore his apartment, listen to his iPod, read his e-mail and see the notes he makes in the margins of Don Quixote.

Take the time to look around, and amusement will surely follow. On a side note, there are rumors of an upcoming GEICO caveman TV show, which I think will be fabulous if it happens.
