Fan Boy Three in Lockdown

Four. Horsemen of the apocalypse... no wait, that's a bad one. Four seasons. Four o'clock in the morning - the time I stay up to most nights uploading images to the website. The sides of a square. Since ancient times four has been the number to indicate solidity. Something that can be touched and felt.

Four is two teams of two - the perfect number for bridge, arguably the first 'social' game. Four Settlers of Catan. Four character roles in fantasy roleplaying - striker, tank, controller, healer. Pandemic. Maximum player count for Gloomhaven.

Extremely convenient for square tables, in a way that five is not.

And it is one day closer.
