    Ticket to Ride: Equestria (Custom Map by Krysto and VikingErik)

    Looks like another cool looking pony mod has come out! Check it out:

    We have finally finished our custom MLP-themed map for the board game, Ticket to Ride.
    This project was a fairly large undertaking between myself (Krysto) and VikingErik, and has been in the works for several months.

    Ticket to Ride is a popular strategy game by Days of Wonder (http://www.daysofwonder.com/tickettoride/en/usa/) and seeing as how we play it rather frequently here in Bronies-NYC, we figured it would be great to make a custom version for all the pony fans out there.

    After quite a bit of playtesting, the final version is ready and is available here: http://vikingpony.com/ttr/index.shtml - the site includes rules for the expansion, as well as downloads for the map, tickets and tokens needed in addition to the base game. All contributors are credited on-site.

    Here's an image sample of the map itself: http://vikingpony.com/ttr/map-web.jpg
    And here's the project header: http://vikingpony.com/ttr/header.png
    (Both of the above files have been attached to this email as well)

    This is a fan-made map and requires the base Ticket to Ride (USA or Europe) game in order to play. The map features a unique mechanic based around the Elements of Harmony. Instructions for printing/putting together the map is included on the site.

    Thanks so much for reading, we hope folks out there enjoy the game, we've put a lot of time and effort into it!

    Ponies Make Appearance in IBM Watson Trends Commercial

    In this rather cute commercial, Twilight and Rarity make an appearance in an IBM ad demonstrating Watson's trend predicting powers!

    Ponibooru Film Night

    Poster artist DaisyHead here. This week we're doing a tv party so that means
    a slew of cartoons. Here's what we got:

    Wander over yonder: Cartoon made by Craig McCracken about an
    intersteller hippy and his sidekick steed who travel the universe.

    Bounty Hunters: Jeff Foxworthy got a cartoon. JEFF. FOXWORTHY. This is 
    that cartoon.

    Mortal Kombat defenders of the realm: Because a mortal kombat kartoon
    is hilarious. 

    Madballs: A cartoon about balls that aren't allowed to sing on their planet
    so they go to earth so they can sing. It's a thirty minute commercial, of
    course it's dumb.

    Rugrats Preschool Daze: A rugrats spinoff so bad it was canned after airing 
    four episodes and no one knew it ever aired. But apparently you can watch all
    the episodes online.

    Mike Tyson mysteries: Mike Tyson in a cartoon about him solving 
    mysteries with a girl and a combination of the funky phantom and
    gentelmen ghost as an homage to Scooby doo and Johnny Quest.

    Miraculous Ladybug: Japanese-french-korean cartoon about a girl
    who transforms into the Miraculous Ladybug to fight a mysterious
    villain and his deomn butterflies that corrupt peoples desires with the help
    of another hero named Chat Noir.

    Frankenhole: Bringing back Frankenhole for a second round, this time Hitler
    goes to Frankenstein to help him stop hating jews. Then it doesn't work as planned.

    Moonbeam City: A cartoon about an idiot cop who destroys more than he helps.
    It's like Archer meet's Hotline Miami.

    One Punch Man: An anime about a man who accidentally trained himself to 
    be so powerful he can defeat any opponent in one punch. The problem?
    He isn't popular.

    Hosts for this week are:
    Harlequin Jester

    Times will be Fri 11/20 4pm pst/ 7pm est/ 11:59pm gmt

    Tonight's Successful Meetups

    The Road to Czequestria (Documentary about CZ/SK Meet-ups)

    Here you have a documentary more than 2 years (spanning more) in the making about the development of the CZ/SK (Czech Republic - Slovak Republic) Brony community leading up to the first Czequestria convention. It premiered at the second CZQ and today it finally got decent (at least I hope :) ) English subs.
    Hope you like it!

    San Diego Bronies Meetup

    In late September bronies traveled up to Julian to experience the Julian Apple Festival. Apple pie was enjoyed by all.

    In October bronies, including some from Los Angeles, went down into Ocean Beach and ate at Hodads Burgers, made famous in "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives".

    In November bronies, including one from the Los Angeles area, took part in San Diego Beer Week by having our second annual pub crawl in the North Park neighborhood.

    We all look forward to meeting many more visitors in January when we host Pacific PonyCon. Learn more at PacificPonyCon.com
