The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Carcassonne, Baby

GR is a pretty fun place to work, what with our collection of severed hands and all. But today I simply can't wait to go home and download Carcassonne which just hit Xbox Live Arcade.

For those of you who haven't played it, Carcassonne is an ingenious board game inspired by the walled medieval city of the same name. Players take turns placing tiles and little men to build roads, monasteries and walled cities of their own.

I play with my friends when I can, but it can be difficult since mostly they have kids. They can't get out much, and apparently nothing says "eat me" to a three year old like a brightly colored tile. So I'm really excited to be able to play with them over Xbox Live.

Also, I'm hoping it might even improve the experience. Risk was a great board game, but managing all those little pieces and rolling all those dice could get tedious, especially when you wanted to build up a large force. When it came out for the computer, it automated all the less interesting parts, drastically sped up the game and made it more accessible. It was so much fun, my college dorm used to have big Risk tournaments where everyone participated, even the girls.

What the heck, I'm the boss - I'm outta here.
