JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun that is very nice now - just right for background mood <3
arkham1981: Music is good now Paul
MarkovDescendant: Thank you Paul. Sounds great.
kusinohki: IIRC, all the artwork is from National Park brochures/maps
Dog_of_Myth: Oh Parks, this game is great.
Haroldholmes25: no stale water in the canteens
Mischievous_Catgeist: fresh water no dysentery
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL yes, all the park art is from the Fifty-Nine Parks Print Series
Heckhoundbolt: we cannot see the bear

Jennie_Fuchsia: I’m really sad- I know it’s my own neurospicy problem, but I’m having trouble understanding people with the music playing. Not a volume problem. Have a nice stream!
kusinohki: what were the inverse? smog, hate, sludge?, ... I forget the rest...
midnightcurryjazz: illuminati hiking
JadedCynic: well, there ARE visitor limits to mitigate their impact on the park...
Haroldholmes25: the first hiker token is so good

HbombAndFriends: @jennie_fuchsia I hear ya. Speaking from experience, auditory processing issues suck.
BluTGI: BRB going to try and pay my rent in sunshine.
MrTheWalrus: Wish I could purchase gear using sunshine...
Juliamon: Jennie_Fuchsia My sympathies! I find having some white noise going (in this case, my fan) obscures the music without obscuring the voices too badly.
roastbeefsandwitch: Zion National Park is actively *removing* parking spaces to explicitly limit visitors. The rest of the people wait on hot, non-air conditioned busses that are rushed through the park in only a perfunctory manner.
roastbeefsandwitch: Recommend: visit national parks from Monday - Thursday, not on heavy tourist days.

JadedCynic: Yeah, I've struggled with APD for decades, I'm lucky that I can 'tune out' the lovely music to follow the instructions clearly
MarkovDescendant: @JadedCynic What is APD?
Juliamon: audio processing disorder
BluTGI: no hiker left behind!
MarkovDescendant: Oh, I've never heard of that before. I will have to look into that later.
roastbeefsandwitch: I want to brush off that hair on the table from my screen ><
JadedCynic: @MarkovDescendant Auditory Processing Disorder (in my youth it was referred to as 'Figure-Ground Defect' - unable to pick out speech you WANT to hear over unwanted background noise)
quasi79fu: legit question sorry if its weird..is APd part of autism..because im on autistic spectrum but i swear i sometimes hae that Apd thingy

quasi79fu: thnxs chat
HbombAndFriends: @quasi79fu Not necessarily part of autism, but can co-occur, like ADHD.
roastbeefsandwitch: *co-morbidity
quasi79fu: oh i know i have Adhd
quasi79fu: i definitly know that one
roastbeefsandwitch: Also, Ben is a *great* explainer. Yay for Ben's great elocution, preparation, and patience!
HbombAndFriends: We need a neurodiversity channel on the Discord
JadedCynic: @roastbeefsandwitch indeed! :)
MarkovDescendant: Would love to see a new video series for LRRTTG that is Ben explaining how to play different Board Games.
roastbeefsandwitch: He's the next Wil Wheaton!

definenull: Oh no
TheNerdWonder: @LoadingReadyRun I think there's a restriction where wildcard tokens can't be spent on something

Haroldholmes25: yes
TokenMickus: Flipper took to the sky
BluTGI: So long and thanks for all the fish!
NewtyNewts: I didn't see if Ben spent anything for it... did I just miss it?
Heckhoundbolt: you gained a tree because of the season card
ChargingFurret: @Heckhoundbolt it's the other order: tree -> water
arkham1981: That Black Bay is lovely. Delighted every time I see it on stream.

Akaiatana: Team Jacob and Kathleen (Team Goth): TiffNeigh
quasi79fu: lol
Haroldholmes25: now we're zooming
roastbeefsandwitch: This game is *so* beautiful, like with Trails. I own Trekking the National Parks (original, signed by creator), but this may be better.
Shadowsoflife: @JadedCynic This is why I eat durning most of the streams I watch
quasi79fu: Loook at this photograppph

laudablecalms: This is genuinely one of the most gorgeous tabletop games I've ever seen. Glad LRR gets to enjoy one of our family's favorites!
James_the_Dabbler: This game is very good
quasi79fu: at end? I dont know i wasnt payin atttention
quasi79fu: lol
Haroldholmes25: @Heckhoundbolt the action at the bottom of trail end. It will also show up on a trail site later
JadedCynic: @quasi79fu yep, and so are you - being part of chat. Q.E.D. <3
Akaiatana: No matter what player is winning, the rest are trailing
James_the_Dabbler: My family is a national parks family, it would make a great christmas gift
midnightcurryjazz: @LoadingReadyRun The ending part of the bgm gets a bit loud compared to the voices before it loops back
laudablecalms: @Heckhoundbolt Yeah, either the action at the trail end, or a special trail site.
inconsideratehat: I've resisted buying any board games because of the space they take up vs how little I make time for them, but this might be the one that I buy.
quasi79fu: wattta botttle
laudablecalms: @inconsideratehat EVERYTHING fits in the box, it's so great
quasi79fu: wolf
laudablecalms: In fact, my only gripe with the game overall is that there's not enough space in the box for the expansion sets' stuff.
NewtyNewts: The first of your three wolves.
quasi79fu: awooooo
Haroldholmes25: love seeing people go for gear, just because it's something I always ignore in this game.
Dread_Pirate_Westley: Awoo?
SymphonicLolita: $200 fine
JadedCynic: awooo.
A_Dub888: !findquote wolf
LRRbot: Quote #6231: "I think wolf-howling is not a bad tactic!" —Heather [2019-07-21]
roastbeefsandwitch: if it's a space issue, I'd recommend the (something) of the West Kingdom or the (something) of the North Sea series. Decent games of varying weight, good art, and small box size
LoadingReadyRun: @midnightcurryjazz we might need to apply some normalization on the music :p
JadedCynic: could be a coyote?
quasi79fu: strange looking weasel ben
quasi79fu: LOL
IbunWest: prawnzAwoo
BluTGI: we need 2 more wolves
ChargingFurret: it's a woof!
quasi79fu: it could be a coyote that is true
ShaneLeeAtk: Moon Moon?
inconsideratehat: @laudablecalms Oh I believe it, I just never have people over for board games, I let my BG friends do the collecting.
JadedCynic: @ShaneLeeAtk dammit ;)
ShaneLeeAtk: Heheh
laudablecalms: @inconsideratehat This game also has a very playable solo mode that I run through when my family is off doing other things.
inconsideratehat: Awww <3
Haroldholmes25: LUL
NewtyNewts: Are the animals wildcards?
TheNerdWonder: yes
laudablecalms: @NewtyNewts Yup.
quasi79fu: wawa
JadedCynic: "so crowded" - sadly like the more 'popular' parks...
Heckhoundbolt: and you get a tree
BluTGI: The tokens look like Flintstones vitamins.
quasi79fu: get treeee
Haroldholmes25: @Heckhoundbolt other way around
quasi79fu: oh right
Heckhoundbolt: damnit, I keep messing tht up
quasi79fu: me too
quasi79fu: i hate rules
Haroldholmes25: it's easy to forget
laudablecalms: @BluTGI Ayup. I wanna eat the eggs from Wingspan, too. They look like Peanut M&Ms.
Heckhoundbolt: the card formating makes me think its " Do x, get Y'
Haroldholmes25: LUL
Haroldholmes25: the wingspan eggs look real tasty
LariatWest: is there a trail site later on that lets you reserve/buy a park?
laudablecalms: @LariatWest Yep
NewtyNewts: Sounds exactly like what a hiker would say
quasi79fu: oh thats coool
Shadowsoflife: neat
quasi79fu: purty owl
goombalax: I've Canoed out there, the beaches are fantastic
SymphonicLolita: when I went to buy wingspan a couple weeks ago the lady at the counter told me to but cadbury mini-eggs and use those as tokens nstead, because "you're absolutely gonna get the urge to eat them, so you might as well make them edible"
Haroldholmes25: AK is alaska
Haroldholmes25: AR is arkansas
TheNerdWonder: really hoping my local nation park shows up tonight
NewtyNewts: AA is aardvark

ani_laurel: Canada has Awesoem parks
Decahawk: @stizzet Not GenCon this year if that's what you mean. Parks has been out for a while now, its got two expansions even!
SymphonicLolita: I highly recommend looking up the National Parks Project as well; a bunch of Canadian music artists recorded an album based on each of the national parks of Canada
Dog_of_Myth: Parks came out in 2019
quasi79fu: parks and rec is a tv show
quasi79fu: lol
stizzet: @decahawk I thought something to do with this was one of the big gets at GenCon this year, but might be confusing it with a similar game...
omdorastrix: I literally JUST booked a camping trip to a provincial park for later this month
quasi79fu: nice
BluTGI: Watersdeep!
RealGamerCow: Dikembe Mutumbo finger waggle.
stizzet: And AK is Alaska if Denali is what they thought was us Arkansas

Daisyg1313: @haroldholmes25 thank you ❤️ I missed the start and didn’t realise it was a season bonus!
Dog_of_Myth: LUL
Daisyg1313: @jonnyglitched pretty much. I don’t know why when you get practically the same sound it’s called a different name.
Heckhoundbolt: Drink water, get a bear
NotCainNorAbel: BEN!
BluTGI: Pretty sure that's just water bending!
Daisyg1313: Although one doesn’t put the same strain on the strings and neck as it’s faked aha
TemporallyAwry: Ben jlrrNo
kusinohki: a whammy bar tightens or loosens a guitar string to change pitch. a wa wa peddle (I assume) use digital magic to change tone
laudablecalms: Bless Ben and Jacob.
JonnyGlitched: @Daisyg1313 is it because the pedals are more of a "switch" than something that changes the sound how much you press?
Lord_Hosk: You have never spoken wrong Kathleen, only happy accidents, happy little trees
frameshifty: I'm glad it wasn't just me
midnightcurryjazz: A wah wah is a foot controlled high pass filter @kusinohki
Daisyg1313: @jonnyglitched the wa wa peddle works like a throttle usually. So you have the same kind of control.
JonnyGlitched: @Daisyg1313 I see
BluTGI: Come for the parks and sunshine, stay for the accents.
Daisyg1313: And I can say neighbours love them all 😂😂
JonnyGlitched: I personally loathe "baby talk" but I'll get over it
midnightcurryjazz: thats not baby talk. Its like mousy servant
NotCainNorAbel: deer
laudablecalms: James got his moose!
Akaiatana: Accent and Canteen are anagrams! (Don't think about it)

Haroldholmes25: LUL
JadedCynic: Thank you, Jacob :D
SymphonicLolita: LUL

MrSarkhan: LUL
Revenant77x: If you put a microphone in the bat box you might end up with a Beatbox
ChargingFurret: thanks jacob LUL
ChaoticObserver: Ba dum bum
Decahawk: I think not as much since wasps are more active during the day while bats are basically exclusively nocturnal
quasi79fu: badum tisss revenant lol

LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL A Bat Box should not be confused for a Batbox, which is where Batman stores stacks of old magazines
ani_laurel: I've been there, its pretty neat
quasi79fu: isnt there a national park somehere in the Us where the rocks move on their own
SymphonicLolita: [badum tish]
LoadingReadyRun: and, of course a Bat Batbox is how Batman makes a nice environment for bats
quasi79fu: and people track the movement through the trails the rocks make??
ChargingFurret: did kathleen spend 2 trees for that?
MrSarkhan: lrrWOW lrrWOW
GreatGodOm: Batman: I'm here to chew bubble gum and hug my parents. And I'm all out of parents.

Spacecarl: braven10HEX
ani_laurel: Bryce might be my favourite USian park
Cunobelenos: I’m so happy you’re playing this game. As an outdoorsy person, I want this game and it’s cool to see it in action.
Haroldholmes25: what did jacob visit?
ChargingFurret: don't gear cost 1 sun less?
Diabore: raisins?
quasi79fu: chocolate covered cherries
MrSarkhan: Same James!
MrSarkhan: They're so good
Diabore: im basic, milk chocolate almods are king
Haroldholmes25: It's Alaska LUL
voren_chalco: Alaska, surely?
JadedCynic: AlasKa, not ARkansas

quasi79fu: i dont think thats arkansas
quasi79fu: LOL
SymphonicLolita: eh, close enough
JadedCynic: postal abbr.
quasi79fu: true
quasi79fu: maybe??
MadWolf1290: @ani_laurel LOL, imagine if it was in AR though
ani_laurel: You have too many states
ChargingFurret: did ben and james spend an extra sun? I thought gear cost 1 sun less with the season
ani_laurel: You need to consolidate
ShaneLeeAtk: Arkansan here, can confirm
Heckhoundbolt: season of wind makes items cheaper
Daisyg1313: Being in europe. Yeah absolutely close enough relatively 😂
Haroldholmes25: @ani_laurel The M states are a real mess for postal abbreviations
Decahawk: Once named Mt. McKinley, it was actually renamed relatively recently to Denali, the original native name!
ani_laurel: I can Imagine
LordZarano: We're not in Arkansas anymore Dorothy!
JadedCynic: @Haroldholmes25 ME, MA, MI, MO, MS, MT....ugh
Juliamon: Am American, have never been able to keep state abbreviations straight
Dog_of_Myth: Denali is the cooler name
Haroldholmes25: yes
Daisyg1313: Me, ma, mi, mo sounds like a vocal warmup.
Shadowsoflife: ^
Juliamon: and I live ADJACENT to ME and MA.
quasi79fu: i hope your adjacent to ma...your ma would disapprove if she couldnt talk to you
Cunobelenos: Maine, mass, mich, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana
Haroldholmes25: LUL
coronax_cj: Don't forget Minnesota
Daisyg1313: Wait so ME is Maine?
Haroldholmes25: yes
Cunobelenos: MN
quasi79fu: are you also adjacent to Pa??
Heckhoundbolt: wait, the art on the mountain card is the same on North Cascade
LordZarano: So it also wouldn't trigger any "You get X when you get a sun" effects
RealGamerCow: Only one state is adjacent to MA and PA
Juliamon: While it is possible to be adjacent to MA and PA, I am not
JadedCynic: @Cunobelenos tyvm! How could I forget the land of a thousand lakes? (one of the few states I've been to - it was nice)
quasi79fu: they keeep close to family
Cunobelenos: @jadedcynic Minnesota is a pretty beautiful place. I love the border area with Canada.
quasi79fu: is that a picture of a palm treee?? a single palm tree??
Haroldholmes25: everybody else is playing parks, Ben decided to just play pokemon snap
Daisyg1313: Tbh we did a states quiz for pub quiz round, and I was shocked to get over 30 right and in the right map location.
quasi79fu: The Everglades
quasi79fu: ive beeen there
SymphonicLolita: crocodil FBtouchdown
quasi79fu: Skunk ape is in the everglades
Mischievous_Catgeist: floridy man
Decahawk: Parks fun Fact: The Everglades is actually increasingly in danger as water is redirected away from the wetlands to use in larger Florida cities. With that comes loss of habitat and other factors; not to mention the invasive species like ball pythons!
arkham1981: Everglades...where nearly every mammal has been killed by giant snakes.

Haroldholmes25: There is distilled, which is sort of like that
quasi79fu: oooh awesome
RealGamerCow: There are also several beer homebrewing card and board games
quasi79fu: oh nice
Diabore: we remain here
Tiber727: @quasi79fu There's viticulture for wine.
Juliamon: every time I see the Vegas slide I misread "signing" as "singing" because it rhymes with spellslinging and I'm disappointed
James_the_Dabbler: @quasi79fu That sounds sick
JadedCynic: @quasi79fu I remember Graham was involved with 'Tabletop Deathmatch' one season that had a prospective game about just that
quasi79fu: oh cool
Haroldholmes25: season of fill your boots
NotCainNorAbel: @Juliamon We have learned that we just need to give Ben the first words to a song...
quasi79fu: i almost misread that as fill your bewbs... I think i need to lurn how to reed better
James_the_Dabbler: I really appreciate how this is a full knowledge solved game, but also not? Like its a real bop
Haroldholmes25: at the cap exactsies, nice
quasi79fu: its the eagle
Heckhoundbolt: an orca, in the forest
RechargeableFrenchman: Fun fact, orcas ARE dolphins
Decahawk: Orcas actually are a type of dolphin in a way
ChargingFurret: ben racking up the pictures
Tiber727: @James_the_Dabbler While I like aspects of this game, my experience was that I found the strategy to always win and got bored of at least the base game.
LordZarano: @RechargeableFrenchman Cetacean needed
ChargingFurret: @RechargeableFrenchman LUL
Twilight_Spark: This feels somewhat more complicated than I remember from my last playthrough. xD
RechargeableFrenchman: @LordZarano Booo urns
midnightcurryjazz: I want some of these park arts for MTG lands
Twilight_Spark: @LordZarano I'm genuinely impressed. That shouldn't work but it does.
RechargeableFrenchman: @LordZarano but actually though that's very funny, I nearly choked on my drink
JadedCynic: @quasi79fu Here's the relevant video about the entry of "Brewin' USA" https://youtu.be/8x_2Bg0bEtU?si=Ltujw4H-lXMjLmKv

Heckhoundbolt: and you gain water when you fill your canteen

SymphonicLolita: hot takes about cold places
PhorrestGaze: we built the highway to it, it's ours

A_Dub888: Ben "Alaska's not a State" Ulmer
Decahawk: D:

Tiber727: @PhorrestGaze Right? They even drove on that road for content!
JadedCynic: @A_Dub888 don't put words in his mouth: Ben "Alaska's not *really* part of the U.S." Ulmer ;)
LordZarano: Much like the rest of America Alaska was never ceded by the nations that lived there
Heckhoundbolt: @LordZarano I mean they were... by force...
SymphonicLolita: LUL
JadedCynic: lrrWOW
Tiber727: @LordZarano TBF, Most land in the world was never ceded to the nations that currently own it.

James_the_Dabbler: Maybe it *was* a moose. Oko is always a possibility
Fanklok: James fake moose enthusiast
KeytarCat: Is there a Hammond Organ in this track??
Heckhoundbolt: you could either screw over kathleen for no gain or you could get zion
KeytarCat: That would it be why it reminds me of Counting Crows
Haroldholmes25: LUL:
MrSarkhan: lrrWOW
RealGamerCow: Buffalo is better.
Haroldholmes25: that was buffa-low of james
Akaiatana: Buffalo, Sell High
RealGamerCow: Buffalo can run as fast as a moose but weighs twice as much
KeytarCat: Love that guy!
SymphonicLolita: I love that youtube channel, his videos are great
Tz_BG: You are better off visiting it then reserving it Kathleen
DEATHlikescats: Casual Geographic is VERY entertaining
MrSarkhan: Hey I was there a few months ago!
MadWolf1290: I believe GSMNP is the only NP that crosses state lines
ChargingFurret: @Tz_BG I think she wants to go first too
TheAwkes: A few small trees between you and an angry buffalo? You're good. A few small trees between you and an angry moose? You're getting smushed by those trees.
Tz_BG: @ChargingFurret Which is fair but getting 5 points, especially if it helps her year goal, is worth more than going first.
SymphonicLolita: additionally: moose are still a lot bigger than you're imagining
ChargingFurret: @Tz_BG totally true
Heckhoundbolt: its cheaper because you got their first
RealGamerCow: I just realized that the token holders are in the shape of National Park signs
ChargingFurret: did jacob spend an extra sun? he did arrive there first
SoaringDragon42: oh wow they are
Dog_of_Myth: @MadWolf1290 Yellowstone does as well.
Akaiatana: Sun of a 'anything!' now.
JadedCynic: I saw the aftermath of an 18-wheeler that hit a moose; the engine block had been driven back under the driving compartment, making the peterbilt look like one of those euro-style trucks.
MadWolf1290: @Dog_of_Myth ah, you right. i just forget about the not-Wyoming parts since they're comparatively so small. :D
LordZarano: Fill this furret with cream, fill this furret with cream! SingsNote
Dog_of_Myth: hahahah
Wicker_Guide: @JadedCynic how was the moose?
ChargingFurret: could ben do his gear stuff by copying the visit, or no?
Tz_BG: @ChargingFurret No he cannot
SoldieroFortune: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:54:59.
ChargingFurret: @Tz_BG thanks!
JadedCynic: @Wicker_Guide ...by the time the line of traffic allowed us to pass the accident site...I never saw a carcass... ;)
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL Maybe I just don't know enough about Buffalo, but I feel like, while both are scary, a moose is more likely to fight.
Tz_BG: @ChargingFurret You're welcome. I have this game and love it.
Dog_of_Myth: @LoadingReadyRun Bison are just as scary.
ghyllnox: Sag-WA-row
SoaringDragon42: sah-huar-o
Haroldholmes25: sa gwar o
SymphonicLolita: the beeg cacti
cobthegreat: It's a cactus
Akaiatana: Sekiro, Shadows nap nice.
RealGamerCow: it's the cactuar cactus
Wicker_Guide: @JadedCynic probably walked away annoyed then
ChargingFurret: also, bison tend to be in groups of 10+
Going_Medium: Cartoon cactus
ghyllnox: Yes it's the traditional cactus shape
quasi79fu: saguoro is a cactus
MadWolf1290: the ur-cactus
quasi79fu: the threee armed cacti
Chesul: looking online, it actually seems pretty likely that the Bison would win. they're twice the weight and can move just as fast, so have a similar muscle ratio.
JadedCynic: buffalo are heavy - you hit a car with one (or a cow) and your car is totalled...OTOH, you hit a moose, and the car might be salvagable but YOU are dead, as the moose's long legs mean it falls ONTO the roof of the car, not the hood of the engine compartment
Chesul: *Buffalo
Heckhoundbolt: fun fact
Heckhoundbolt: read the fun fact
loufghyslaufey: You keep... One goat? On a national park?
SymphonicLolita: bison and moose are the kiki and bouba of animals that will mess you up with no hesitation
loufghyslaufey: ouch, Jacob.
SymphonicLolita: LUL
Dog_of_Myth: LUL
JadedCynic: :D
TemporallyAwry: #Friendship
SymphonicLolita: beeg tree
KeytarCat: It's neat that I've been to a lot of these
KeytarCat: In the sex joke, what does deciduous mean?
Heckhoundbolt: Are we still on the buffalo vs moose topic?
Tiber727: Free water? Don't let Nestle hear you say that!
ChargingFurret: also, they are more likely to hit the moose legs, which would hurt the moose more than the moose hitting down would hurt the buffalo
SoaringDragon42: Been there! It's awesome!
MadWolf1290: inspired by
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL Can't Buffalo and Moose just get along?
roastbeefsandwitch: Sand Dunes is awesome! As promised, huge sand dunes! Avoid digital cameras as the sand gets in
Akaiatana: @LoadingReadyRun Moose Jaw, Buffalo Jump
saucemaster5000: @LoadingReadyRun NO
TotallyNotaBeholder: Utah has many nice national parks, and some roads between them
KeytarCat: ROOOOOOOOCKS sand
Haroldholmes25: rock sand! rock sand
Heckhoundbolt: Is it Nevada or Utah that is mostly owned by the US government rather than the state?
Sevinon: Ooh, very pretty game
Sevinon: Just came in
Decahawk: Fun Fact: the Utah parks are routinely called the Mighty 5! They have 5 big parks with incredibly unique geology
Going_Medium: There's some good mountain biking in Utah.
Dog_of_Myth: @Heckhoundbolt I want to say Nevada.
loufghyslaufey: Like a bulk of Wastes, "basic land type" somewhere out here...
NotCainNorAbel: @Heckhoundbolt Nevada
ArcLightningCanuck: I missed the beginning. Did Trails get played first?
TemporallyAwry: @ArcLightningCanuck it was a typo, game was always Parks.
Heckhoundbolt: @ArcLightningCanuck no, they kept calling it the wrong thing
ArcLightningCanuck: @TemporallyAwry thanks
Mazrae: I'm glad that I wasn't the only one thinking of that song when Ben said are you ready for this
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun Yeah, Bison, Buffalo & Moose have to quit squabbling among each other (they don't - different biomes - Bison & Buffalo don't like marshes, e.g.) and focus their attention on their REAL enemy, like their Orca friends already have realized - the obscenely rich & powerful among the humans
loufghyslaufey: An Island & Mountain? Is Ben winning!?
Heckhoundbolt: @JadedCynic Orcas eat moose
Tz_BG: You should reset your campfire
Shadowsoflife: ^
TemporallyAwry: @Heckhoundbolt I'd like to see them do that on the Moose's turf.
jessicaengle: Howdy nature lovers
Shadowsoflife: @TemporallyAwry Moose are swimmers
loufghyslaufey: She running on sunshine, Wa, wah, Oh!
Heckhoundbolt: @TemporallyAwry This is why Orcas do it when Moose try to eat in their turf
JadedCynic: @Heckhoundbolt fine; ignore whatever I type; nevermind - thanks for making it clear it's a waste of effort
loufghyslaufey: Oh, hey! Jacob has a Volcanic Island!!
Tz_BG: If Kathleen gained a tree from filtering in the canteen, she still gets a sunshine
loufghyslaufey: Two tropical Islands? Lawl.
TemporallyAwry: @JadedCynic sorry for contributing to the conversation fork.
midnightcurryjazz: Did you see the aki trailer ben?
Dog_of_Myth: Big Turts
HadesLeprechaun: I see the funni character stories have given way to DEEP THOUGHT which is the way of strategy games, haha
Tz_BG: Ben has it correct
KeytarCat: oh Capitol Reef is hard to grasp. The ranger station is far enough from the cline that I couldn't really feel the grandeur when I went through
KeytarCat: Also that was before I cracked my egg, so I might just not have noticed
HadesLeprechaun: I have been to many of these parks! national parks are my favorite things to do on vacations
Heckhoundbolt: @KeytarCat ... is that a euphemism?
SymphonicLolita: I am an outdoors person cursed into a family of people that hate doing anything that might require physical activity
KeytarCat: @Heckhoundbolt yeh, for discovering one is trans
LordZarano: Right to roam laws are very good yes
Heckhoundbolt: @KeytarCat aaa
HadesLeprechaun: I've never really enjoyed cities as 'vacation locations', always preferred nature
ChargingFurret: angel feesh!
jessicaengle: HypePat
KeytarCat: I love stories, so if someone tells me a story about where I am, I'll have a good time
dumbo3k: big turts!
Heckhoundbolt: that is an elk
SymphonicLolita: nobody tell him

ChargingFurret: that's a wild exchange?
Tz_BG: Jacob can't do that trade on that square
TehAmelie: Country Roads is about west Virginia rather than West Virginia, so tricksy
Haroldholmes25: cool rocks
KeytarCat: They're falling steadily! but randomly. You can't go near the arches because they could fall basically at any time
Mazrae: Two sons or Tuscon
e_bloc: according to legend, Country Roads was also written about a road that runs through Gaithersburg MD (on the way to west Virginia)
TehAmelie: ha
e_bloc: if you drive on that road nowadays you will be much less inspired--it is mostly surburbs

Dog_of_Myth: Badlands is a neat park.
MadWolf1290: that's near (in South Dakota terms) to Mt. Rushmore!
TemporallyAwry: I've watched someone repack a hiking bag so efficiently and compactly, it might as well have been a magic trick. I can believe they have all that gear.
Rigarz24: Hey I'm from south Dakota lol
TheNerdWonder: my parents just came back from a trip to the Badlands

Haroldholmes25: they've been consistently getting got by AK != Arkansas, which is very funny
Shadowsoflife: ourkansas?
Tz_BG: Ben may have to blind reserve to gamble on getting some more trees.
SymphonicLolita: wet park
MadWolf1290: my parents live there (USVI) and I'm so happy/mad at them for it. :D
ArcLightningCanuck: Draw of the top of the deck and see what you get?
Shadowsoflife: just top deck it?
ChargingFurret: ben NOT taking a picture there? he must have a plan!
TemporallyAwry: !chat
LRRbot: Seriously, just never listen to chat.
ArcLightningCanuck: Has anyone been using the blind draw option? Worth a try if there's nothing you can buy.

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, kodalith! (Today's storm count: 77)
jessicaengle: LRRniversity
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL it feels like the "reserve a park" mechanic might have been a late edition to the game. Allowing people to claim a park before they have the resources gives something to build towards.
kodalith: Just got here. I have no idea what's going on. But man is this a pretty looking game.
Haroldholmes25: I'm glad that we've confirmed that everybody finds postal acronyms indecipherable
KeytarCat: Like buying one of the limited passes at the beginning of the year for your trip in September
ChargingFurret: did ben not buy the thing he reserved? or could he not
Tz_BG: @ChargingFurret He couldn't because he didn't get enough water.
ChargingFurret: @Tz_BG ahh! thanks
Haroldholmes25: pretty good for a first game
Tz_BG: Ben's goal is trees and pictures
TemporallyAwry: Plus a Moose!
jessicaengle: Moose? Priceless
Dog_of_Myth: FBtouchdown
Haroldholmes25: ben with the photo finish
NotCainNorAbel: Pride500 - Visit your parks everyone.
jessicaengle: jlrrCoolgame
ArcLightningCanuck: I forgot you can only draw from the top of the deck when reserving a park, so no last ditch topdecking unfortunately.
Tz_BG: Pretty sure all of them are worth 2 or 3 points
Haroldholmes25: yeah I think they changed up the goals in the first expansions because it was a lil rough
Tz_BG: @ArcLightningCanuck Ben could have attempt to top deck when he reserved instead of reserving the park with all the water
Tiber727: The secret goals are really just there to give you a tiny bit of direction, but they aren't a big deal to ignore.
Tiber727: Personally, I think reserving parks is a trap anyway.
HadesLeprechaun: I think it'd be an easy hour and a half on a second play
jessicaengle: sergeGG
Haroldholmes25: Question for the room, what state is AK?
Tiber727: Alaska
jessicaengle: Alaska
LordZarano: Road Quest II: National Parks
