  1. Glad to hear you guys enjoyed BGG.CON. It was good to finally meet you there, Chris. I played VivaJava for the first time there, even played it twice, and really enjoyed it. Now to find a copy of it and its expansion!

  2. Thanks, Lee – it was great to meet you there, as well! I’m also glad you finally got a chance to play VivaJava, and even more psyched that you enjoyed it! VivaJava is hard to track down right now, but… send me an email when you get a chance and I’ll see what I can do.
