I've worked in IT since 2006 after a brief stint in Journalism. At various points, I've been paid to work with MySQL, MS Office/VB type stuff, XML, HTML and Java. I'm currently a developer working mainly in Java, and am working on some Android and iOS apps in my spare time.

comment Is there much strategy and planning in 7-Wonders or is mostly luck?
I also disagree about trading posts. I've only played this 5 times, so I won't claim to be an expert, but I don't think they're useless at all. The big benefit that hasn't been mentioned is the ability to play future cards for free with them. Having those flexible resource generators in the late game, especially since you don't know which Guild cards are going to be available, isn't a concept that should just be brushed away. I do agree they seem to provide less of a short term benefit, but you are gaining something in return.

comment What are good games to play during a one-hour lunch break?
Sure, I'll take care of that. I thought one answer per game was what people were looking for here based on one of the comments above, on the answer that starts with Citadels.
