Law ATTN ENSIGNZU (Or is it beyelSteve?)

Yes hello, you two need to drag your cookies to Los Angeles the first weekend in April. Why? Because on Sunday, April 2nd, you will have the opportunity to play the freaking Royal Game of Ur with one of the world's foremost experts on cuneiform who has personally translated the only known tablet of instructions on how to play the game.

You will go. You will play with nerdly abandon. You will take copious pictures and/or video. You will then either tell me all about it in exhaustive detail, or you will write it up yourself. Either way, it gets posted on my blog.

I WILL BROOK NO CONTRADICTION ON THIS MATTER.

While that does seem insanely cool, and very much in my wheelhouse, we are camping in nevada that weekend.

We're going camping in Zion with some friends and families of the people we lost in the flood.

Not to make you feel like an asshole or anything. :xp:

By April Nevada will be a nuclear waste dump. If you go camping there, it'll be The Conqueror all over again. Ergo, you have no choice but to play Ur with Dr. Finkel at the Getty Villa.

eta Dammit, Ensign! You just had to hit me with freaking flood survivors. :sadcheer:

It's just ES. Bey's technological and social distinctiveness has been assimilated. Remember?

Watch where you pitch your tent along the Strip.

I know you've made plans this year already, but I know some people who can give guided tours of slot canyons in the Grand Staircase National Monument area if you're ever interested in that kind of thing.

I would happily play the Royal Game of Ur and write about the experience. Someone just needs to organise and promote a crowdfunding effort for a few thousand dollars for flights, accommodation, etc.
