Just picked up a copy of this. Rated quite highly on BGG for whatever that is worth. Catch is that's it's a one and done co-op story so looking for a group that would want to play through the full game.

Premise is that you're a Temporal Agent taking control of receptacles in the past/present/future or alternate timelines. This run is called asylum and is set in 1921. Part RPG and part Board Game.

If there are a lot of people keen I'm happy to loan the game out to a second group of course.

4 players.

I'm game.

T.I.M.E Stories gets compared to Mansions of Madness 2nd ed quite a bit and that is amazing fun.

Very interested. Reminds me of the show "Travelers" on Netflix.

Sweet. Yeah looks really good. Playtime is 3+ hours but you're able to play in runs to breakbit up easily.

I could be interested in this Aaron. Are you looking to run it during a spinshed event or another time?

I take it you're investigating the mystery of how a particularly buff double orc got transported into 20th century earth?

Correct. Unfortunately due to the backward thinking ways of the 1920's our double-orc bromancer got himself locked up. Your adventure starts here.

I'm flexible. A Saturday when we aren't playing cricket could be good.

This ended up being one of my highlights for the weekend. Great fun. More investigation rather than RPG though. Happy to loan out to another TIME squad.

For current operatives, I also picked up the next case file...

N.T. 1992

A mysterious epidemic strikes a peaceful American city. Save young Marcy. Save the future.

It looked pretty interesting from the sidelines. Much replay value?

If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight. Sun Tzu said that. And i'd say he knows a little more about fighting than you do pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honour.

Then he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one.

And from that day forward, any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo. Unless it's a farm.

Absolutely zero replay value.
