Subject: GZG-ECC III: The Quote Board

Okay, the quote board has been transcribed. In some instances I was
able to attribute the game/scenario to the quote. Others were already
attributed. :)	Enjoy! Good memories for the participants. Those who
weren't able to come...try for 2001! (or GZG-WCC 2000). My overall
con AAR will come later, when I get some more time.  These quotes will
appear on the GZG-ECC webpage in the next couple of days.

monstrous planet killer on turn 1:
"Threshold Check!" (indy)

Jerry: "I see a lot of sixes."
Keith: "You pay attention to what you want, I pay attention to what I

Followed by Indy rolling 30 points of damage on Keith's SDN:
Indy: "That should be a threshold check."
