    Usually if you contact a place directly if they deliver it will be cheaper (You should still Tip).


    I know the tipping culture is very big in the USA. I would argue though that surely the company that employs the drivers should ensure that the drivers receive a decent minimum fee, and then compensate for that fee in the price of the item when offered online? Especially in this time of Covid-19, I for one am not carrying any cash anymore (all contactless) and as a driver I would be very reluctant to accept cash in hand from someone at a random house. Plus there is the more ideological argument that customer-facing workers (e.g. drivers) should not be made dependent on the whims of their assigned customers as to how their pay check looks that month, but I guess that's a whole minefield in itself.

    As Maark says, the Tories have been continuously repeating the message that nothing changes under a Deal scenario. So most UK companies will just have assumed that as part of the trade deal, the pre-Brexit EU regulations would hold up.

    I'd second Star Realms. There are several different themed versions for this as well, e.g. Lovecraft mythos, if basic sci-fi isn't your thematic cup of tea.

    For 7 Wonders, please note that there specifically is a 2-player version available for this, called '7 Wonders: Duel' (already mentioned previously by Morgoth). The basic concept is the same, but the Duel version varies enough from the core game to make it a good fun option on its own. Plus the 7 Wonders game, although it can be played with two players, really works best with more players due to the hand cycling mechanic. For 'Duel' they have changed this into drawing cards in turn from a central field, with certain cards only becoming available once your opponent opens them up for you. So same basic concept but very different game mechanic.

    Other options for two players that me and the missus often fall back on:

    - most cooperative games lend themselves well to two-player runs (Pandemic, Legendary, Forbidden Island/Desert, Mansions of Madness)
    - most table top escape room style games (Unlock, Exit!, Escape Room, Detective, Sherlock Holmes: consulting detective, Mythos Tales, etc) if you are into that sort of game
    - patchwork
    - Santorini
    - Odin's ravens
    - dominion
    - azul
    - splendor
    - jaipur
    - sagrada
    - smash up
    - carcassonne

    Got 'Reluctant Hero' by Killer Be Killed over Christmas. Great album! I know the supergroup label is overused a bit, but in this case it seems more than deserved. Max Cavalera, Troy Sanders, Greg Puciato, Ben Koller. Bloody hell. Mastodon heaviness with Sepultura grooves, laced with Converge and DEP metalcore influences. Been on non-stop repeat over the past week.

    Just made the mistake of reading Tucker Carlson's opinion piece on the riot. I feel very nauseous now.
