NZ quake


Just a quick note to send good wishes to my NZ friends and any other readers affected by the recent earthquake in Christchurch.  Second one in five months, and though this one wasn't as powerful as the one in September, by all accounts there's been much more destruction this time around.

I know those in the area have more pressing things to do other than check out gaming blogs, but condolences to those who've lost loved ones and godspeed to those digging others out.


  1. This morning I emailed a guy in Christchurch that bought a mini from me in Jan hoping he is safe.

  2. Yeah,
    my mate was goin to be moving back home from here in Australia to NZ, specifically Christchurch where his family is. As yet he hasnt been able to reach anyone.

    Got home from work about 30min after it happened to hear all this:

    Apparently the quake was 6.7 on the scale, with the after shock being 5.3 or 5.6.
    The epicentre of the quake was only 10km (6.2miles) from the city.
    2 bus loads full of people were crushed by falling masonry in the city.
    Multiple building collapses and fires.

    That was the last i heard about it, from about 2pm yesterday (2hrs after it happened).
