Alex introduced me to this game that's called Fluxx. We picked up a copy yesterday at our local nerd shop. We got the Zombie edition and played it a lot last night. He wanted to pick up the regular copy so we went back over there tonight and got it. It's a really great game! I will probably make you play it if you come over anytime soon ;-)
And on to the good news! Alex and I got final approval on the house! Despite the delays and doubt, we finally got the OK. So now we get to move forward with closing, which should be April 24th. It'll be a push but I think we can make it.
We are absolutely ecstatic!
