The Mystery of the Missing Boardgame

This past fall I went to OmegaCon, a small convention that takes place in central Wisconsin and mostly involves a lot of pajama wearing and gameboard playing. About a month after the con I was in my office and noticed that I was missing my copy of Lords of Waterdeep. This made me very sad. I assumed that I must have left it at the convention, even though games very rarely end up missing at that particular con. With a shrug and a c’est la vie, I put it aside and figured I’d try to track it down or pick up a new copy at some point.

Come Christmas morning:

An board game box with fantasy warrior artwork and "Lords of Waterdeep" text across the top of the box. The lid is lifted up so a few unpunched game pieces are visible..

A open Lords of Waterdeep game. Not lost at OmegaCon after all! Quizzical look at the Hubby. “Hubby – why did you take my Lords of Waterdeep game off of my shelf and wrap it up as a gift for me?”

“No, that’s a new game.” He doesn’t offer any other explanations, so I deftly further the interview, “Why?”

“Well,” he starts, “your old game was in really bad shape. It was missing a bunch of pieces.”

“What? Did someone wreck it at OmegaCon? That’s shitty.”

“No, not exactly.” He walks over to the Christmas tree and pulls out this gigantic package that had been leaning against the wall.

“Ooooo….that’s for me!? I get the big present!? Wait…dear lord, what have you done?”

A large framed shadowbox. The Lords of Waterdeep gameboard is affixed centrally. Game pieces, player mats and game coins are affixed in all of the other previously free spaces along the sides. The effect is utterly riotous.

“My old game was missing a lot of pieces, huh?”

Yup, that’s a giant Lords of Waterdeep mural, made up of pieces from my old game. The mural now hangs in the front room so the nerdiness of the household can be declared immediately upon entry. No coyness here. It really is quite a thing to behold. The Hubby had a lot of fun explaining why the game it was set up the way it was. Some things are purely asthetic; in pure nerd bliss, we spent a while critiquing the set up, and pointing out the impossible (“You’re never going to get someone with over 100 points before the fifth round of a base game!” “But I wanted to display the 100 point marker!”).

A man in jeans and blue sweatshirt (Hubby) stands proudly next to the newly hung Lords of Waterdeep mural. A couch is visible in the foreground.

    Did you know these realities on CBD OIL and Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Oil? Cannabinoids are separated from hemp utilizing supercritical CO2 extraction. Thanks to modern-day technology, the resulting solution is clean, without unnecessary waxes and heavy metals, naturally present in the plant, and the drawn liquid has a typical, oily consistency. CBD oil includes cannabidiol as a base active ingredient and may contain just trace quantities of tetrahydroxycannabidiol (THC). Works as a memory enhancer, enhancing concentration and coordination of movements, removing swelling and recurrent infections. It enhances the conduction of stimuli in the course of autoimmune illness (numerous sclerosis, amyotrophic sclerosis). It is suggested by medical professionals and pharmacists as an antioxidant and substance that blocks the action of proinflammatory cytokines (proteins), e.g. in Crohn’s illness or ulcerative intestine. RSO oil has a low CBD content, while high THC. Obviously, the essential task of RSO is to trigger a psychoactive result, although it can also stimulate “sick” brain structures. It is worth knowing that supplements of this type is mainly used by people to whom basic therapy does not bring relief in health problem. The synergistic (enhancing) action of CBD and THC relative to each other is utilized here. When utilized independently, both cannabinoids can do much more together than. In addition, they jointly stimulate the division of non-active afferent neuron, nourish the fatty envelope of the nerves, and avoid myelin inflammation that triggers loss of function in some autoimmune diseases. There are likewise stories where marijuana in its natural form softened spasticity, lowered the frequency of convulsions and seizures, and suppressed undesirable scrapie in Parkinson’s illness. This is where the idea of getting RSO, planned only for chronically ill people, come from . Both cannabis oil type CBD and RSO also include other cannabinoids, such as cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabigerol (CBG). The trick is not, nevertheless, that CBD often has a structure expanded to consist of flavones, flavonoids, terpenes, terpenoids, amino acids and omega acids. The distinction is primarily due to motives guiding humankind to use one or the other product. CBD medical cannabis oil is a rather helpful mix of cannabinoids, developed to protect against 21st century illness. It’s best to utilize all of these substances together, as nature created them and confined in marijuana inflorescences. It ends up that cannabidiol boosts the impacts of cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabigerol (CBG), and flavonoids or flavones enhance the absorption of these substances. Omega-6 and omega-3 extremely nurture the body and do not allow to change, which speed up the aging procedure of the organism and enhance the development of cancer. Oil of cannabis in a kind of hobby APR contains percentages of CBD, balanced by the existence of THC. Producers focus on the synergistic result of one substance relative to the other, while deserting the presence of CBC and CBG. Why such a decision? – Modern clinical research shows that CBD + THC manage major autoimmune diseases, while CBC or CBG show very little activity in the existence of both substances, simply like terpenes, flavones or flavonoids, therefore their material in the service seems to be unneeded. In addition, the cannabis stress from which THC and CBD are derived contain negligible quantities of other cannabinoids. RSO oil is completely illegal in Poland, which is why it can not be acquired in any legally operating shop on the market. Of course, there are a number of amateur methods for obtaining it, however it’s good to know that substances obtained artificially in house labs are uncertain, untested, and the impact unknown. The solvent for the production of household RSO is usually gas, alcohol and even kerosene, which instead of curing, toxin. Alcohols and their like hinder cannabinoids, therefore in reality, they do not bring anything new to the medical world. Marijuana oil has actually currently marked a new period in which guy ceased to fear what is unknown, and began to uncover what our forefathers had currently discovered and utilize the significant capacity, in the beginning look, a little bizarre relationships, associated primarily with pathology. Medical marijuana, contrary to its name, does not mean fermented female inflorescences and leaves containing psychoactive compounds coiled in so-called “Joints”, however a beneficial oil without psychoactive THC. A standard individual, after taking doses of medicinal marijuana and attaining the suitable state of cannabinoids in the blood, can enjoy increased immunity, decreased vulnerability to cancer, delayed aging and decreased risk of stroke or heart attack. CBD oil includes cannabidiol as a base ingredient and might include just trace quantities of tetrahydroxycannabidiol (THC). RSO oil has a low CBD content, while high THC. Both cannabis oil type CBD and RSO also contain other cannabinoids, such as cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabigerol (CBG). CBD medical marijuana oil is a rather advantageous mix of cannabinoids, designed to protect against 21st century disease. Oil of cannabis in a kind of hobby APR includes small amounts of CBD, stabilized by the existence of THC.
