I have the best mom ever. This is what she brought back for me from the thrift store today: six sealed packs of Star Trek: the Card Game, from 1996, complete with huge instructional booklets and the special mail-in offer for the super-exclusive “shirtless Kirk” card. Oh, yeah.
It looks like it’ll take a really long time to learn; so I’ll bring along the instructions for the five-hour drive to Moscow tomorrow. If all else fails, I can always frame the cards and create a super-nerd gallery in my bedroom.
