Sorry – forgot to add you to the first list, yes; you’re definitely in (that makes six – still looking for a seventh player). No, it won’t be “too geeky” for either of you – the rules are simpler than Risk (which Andy is amazing at, aren’t you?), they’re just a little unusual (simultaneous-phase-turn board games always confuse people the first time they play one). You’ll make a fine team, I’m sure.
