Ryan Metzler Interview part 3

Here is part 3 of the Ryan Metzer crowd sourced interview.. He was only just getting going!

@InsertStrawHere @slaqr If you could mash any other activity with boardgames (other than the obvious life-sustaining ones), what would it be? #boardgamersask
@slaqr @InsertStrawHere Mashing activities together...Board Games and Traveling!  I love to travel, just don't have the chance #boardgamersask
@BoardGamersAsk @slaqr You should check out http://t.co/bMyE7wWjMk might be your dream come true #boardgamersask

@BoardGamersAsk @64ozGames lets not pick on @slaqr he's got such a great smile! #boardgamersask
@slaqr @BoardGamersAsk @64ozGames This is, honestly, the first time this has ever been uttered. #boardgamersask

@reldnahcire #boardgamersask almost at the halfway point so I'd like to say Thanks to @slaqr for joining us today!
@slaqr @reldnahcire My pleasure! I'm good at talking about myself! #boardgamersask
@BoardGamersAsk @reldnahcire you always beat me to thanking the guest.. Your officially second in command at the Ministry of Board Games! #boardgamersask
@reldnahcire @BoardGamersAsk if we don't say thank you often and loudly, why would guest tell their friends to hang out with us :) #boardgamersask

@LiterallyTony @slaqr Do you still play MTG? #boardgamersask
@slaqr @LiterallyTony I do, although only in draft and sealed formats usually.  I also have a peasant cube that we draft at home #boardgamersask
@LiterallyTony @slaqr that's awesome. I'm the same way, easier on the wallet. I'm guessing your cube is made up of commons/uncommons? #boardgamersask
@slaqr @LiterallyTony Yessir!  Ravnica block! #boardgamersask

@64ozGames What game that you've reviewed in the past year or so am I less of a person for not having tried yet? #boardgamersask
@slaqr @64ozGames I don't know what you have or haven't played!  Have you tried Terra Mystica yet? You need to play that... #boardgamersask
@64ozGames @slaqr No I have not.. I am a terrible terrible person. #IThinkYouOughtToKnowImFeelingAwfullyDepressed #PainInDiodesLeftSide #boardgamersask

@reldnahcire #boardgamersask most interesting/novel first player mechanism?
@slaqr @reldnahcire Honestly, we ignore almost all start player rules. For in game start player...oh who knows! Pass! #boardgamersask

@BoardGamersAsk Ryan, what do you think is a great game that most people wont know about? #boardgamersask
@slaqr @BoardGamersAsk I try to pimp this game as much as I can, especially for trick taker fans...Sticheln! Check it out. #boardgamersask
@slaqr @BoardGamersAsk It is an awesomely un-intuitive trick taker where you want to be a "prick" #boardgamersask

@reldnahcire @BoardGamersAsk #boardgamersask also, what's a great game that is out of print that should come back?
@slaqr @reldnahcire @BoardGamersAsk Chinatown.  Z-Man has the license...just print it already! #boardgamersask

@reldnahcire Man! @slaqr is the best at answering questions! So fast!!! #boardgamersask
@slaqr @reldnahcire Gotta answer fast! Think on your toes!  Blurt out your first thought! #boardgamersask

@slaqr Overrated game: Catan...I don't get it.  Underrated: I honestly don't know.   #boardgamersask

@Punch_Cardboard @slaqr Any advice for new reviewers?  Especially for what kind of notes to take while playing?  #boardgamersask
@slaqr @Punch_Cardboard Advice for new reviewers...this tweet will be multipart.  Let me go ahead and number them.  Next tweet #boardgamersask
@slaqr @Punch_Cardboard 1) Make sure you have a niche.  No niche will see you with too many games, people complaining, etc. #boardgamersask
@slaqr @Punch_Cardboard 2) Try your best to compare one game to another.  People like to know how games relate #boardgamersask
@slaqr @Punch_Cardboard 3) Always...ALWAYS...try to find something positive about a game to say...you have to try! #boardgamersask
@slaqr @Punch_Cardboard 4) Come up with a gimmick...I don't have one, but I bet it would help! #boardgamersask
@slaqr @Punch_Cardboard 5) Notes? I don't take notes...only mental.  Think about good mechanics, what is different in the game... #boardgamersask
@slaqr @Punch_Cardboard 5 cont.) ...and how well the theme meshes with the mechanics.  I think thats a good start. #boardgamersask
@BoardGamersAsk @slaqr @Punch_Cardboard Ah but you do.. Your reviews are relatively short, which is good! #boardgamersask
@Punch_Cardboard @slaqr Wow!  Thanks so much for all the good tips.  Some of it is stuff I've already been trying to sell to my cohosts! :) #boardgamersask

Come back tomorrow for Part 4 of 5
