... over OnLine (and OnLine is fun, no mistake) are certain factors like the impending snowpocalypse here in New England.
If we get what they're predicting we will (up to 36" of snow in less than 24 hours) there's a very good likelihood of us losing power (and good stuff like the internet) and it might stay gone for days and days.
Back in October of '11 we had a similar snowpocalypse and large parts of the state went without power for over a week.
I can still roll dice in candle-light or lantern-light, so I'll still be able to play should the worst occur...
I might even have more time for the game than I usually do.

I have to agree with you on this. Back in '95 with a severe winter storm that hit Georgia, myself and my family only had several laterns for light and we played the card version for many hours. We all took turns being general manager and it was a lot of fun. Of course the power was out for almost a week. But that didn't bother us. So I will always prefer the cards. Online is okay, but does have it's drawbacks sometimes.
Not only that but that might interfere with the internet that is why i push for a downloadable version that you can play offline. Haven't figured out the no power yet, but I can understand your feelings for the dice and cards.

Both have their advantages and disadvantages in their respected situations. But I'll still give the edge to cards. Simply because it brought my family and friends a lot closer together. Internet is okay if you are on the go or much further away from home. I still have many pleasant moments from those times.
I've probably said this before but the online game is SO below the computer game standard it would need a huge overhaul for me to think about spending any money on it. It's very cluttered and user unfriendly.
