Especially if the game is about the War of 1812 or perhaps cotton gins.

Preferred Type of Game?

Bohnanza Re:Board games are forever... (171 comments)

There is another element of board/card/tabletop/etc gaming that can not be easily incorporated into computerized format - the psychological. Sure, you can play diplomacy by email, but it loses the element of lie-detection. There are other games, such as Battlestar Galactica, Werewolf, Coup, The Resistance, Liar's Dice, Skull & Roses, and Intrigue, where this is a major part of the game.

E-Books On a $20 Cell Phone

Bohnanza Re:Seriously? (116 comments)

Reading e-books two or three lines at a time on a 3.2-inche screen would turn anyone off of reading

I prefer to read on my phone over any other format. I can hold it and turn pages with one hand, and since only one paragraph fits on a page, I never lose my place even if I am distracted. I read MUCH faster on my phone than when reading from a paper book.

My current phone is bigger, but I read many books on my Iphone 3, with a screen size of only 3.5 inches, so I think the experience would be similar with these small phones.

And I am not alone, e-reader apps have always been among the most popular.

Bohnanza Re:Songle (45 comments)

I have recently become a heavy user of Songza, and one of the best features is the lack of ad breaks. I expect this to change pretty soon.

60% of Americans Unaware of Looming Incandescent Bulb Phase Out

Bohnanza Wish they'd phased them out in reverse (944 comments)

I can buy fluorescents and LEDs to replace 40 and 60 watt bulbs, but there is still no good replacement for the 100 watt bulb. The "100 watt equivalent" fluorescents are nowhere near as bright, and are so large that they don't properly fit in some fixtures.
