Re: What is happening

Lots of rain here in the Netherlands this week and low temps (15 C). I came back from southern Spain early in the week and had to adjust from 35-40 C to 15 Celsius! :)

Re: Pern Boardgame - Differences in editions?

No, no rule changes or differences in play. Just in material.
