Mid-Week Random Thoughts
It seems like forever since I had a solid 9-5 day of board gaming. Perhaps this holiday weekend will fix that. I have been super duper busy the past few weeks, and 36 hours of house painting over the past four days have eaten up a bit of free time. Heck, I've had a large, sealed box from Thought Hammer looking at me for almost a week, but I'm just too pooped to enjoy the experience of cracking it open. In that box alone are probably enough games to keep me happily engaged for the 6 months: Empire of the Sun, Blackbeard, Here I Stand, Aquaretto.
Kevin Wilson just released a wonderful Build Your Own Hero tool for Descent. Now we need the build your own monster tool... We need to get RtL back to the table.
Rob: When are we playing Europe Engulfed?
I hear rumors of a TI:3 game in NW San Antonio this weekend. I wish you all well! I need to play again.
While painting this weekend, I listened to a 12-hour series of podcasts on ancient warfare. One interesting factoid was that the word decimate comes from the Roman practice of executing one out of every ten surviving soldiers from a legion if they lost a battle. Now if I could only put that into practice at my job...
GTA4 is still wonderful. I'm progressing slowly still, but having a blast. I think my real life driving skills have devolved a bit, as I now find it excruciating to sit through a red light.
Okay, I'm getting the bedtime summons. Have a great week! Let's play games on Saturday!
