Board Gamey Thoughts of Boardgamingness

And how! -Just prior to the long weekend, I received my first ever physical Kickstarter package. Super Dungeon Explore : Forgotten King is a standalone new version of the original SDE. They’ve done away with half the status effects (there were a ludicrous number before) and the stupid loot board. Either a bunch of players

Watching The Neighbors

WARNING : This post is long. Really, really long. I may slip in and out of consciousness and/or reality as it progresses. I’m not sure of what’s real and what’s fake. Tommy Wiseau has probably given me permanent brain damage. I’m going to go back through this and leave a few new comments in italics,

Thanks, Catholicism!

I’ve hit a bit of a dry spell here at the old blog lately. I’ve been looking for subjects, but not too much has come about. And then, the Alberta Catholic School Association decided to reliably fill the void as it seems Catholicism so often is. Thank you, specific faith group. You’re like one of

Look in the Mirror

Ask and you just might receive, Liam… “We all want to blame somebody for the circumstance we’re in,” Mr. Prentice said on Wednesday. “In terms of who is responsible we all need only look in the mirror. Basically all of us have had the best of everything and have not had to pay for what

How to Ruin Dessert

As I’ve had much time to spend doing whatever as my mouth heals (there ya go, I just lobbed every one of you a batting practice softball. You’re welcome.), I’ve had time to watch a lot of crap. And amongst the smelliest crap has been Sandra Lee. Who or what might that be? This woman

Super Bowl 2015 Ads – What the Hell?!

I’m not going to get into too many of them, but there seemed to be a weird theme. Namely : companies that seemingly have no idea what in the Hell they’re promoting, or to whom they’re promoting it. Let’s start with Budweiser. First off, this ad with a dog who runs away from home and

Post Super Bowl Thoughts

HAHA! Suck it, you neon green-wearing bastards! Ahem…er…yes…let’s return to the level of decorum you’ve come to expect from this blog. That’s more like it. -You do not win by getting away from what got you there. Josh McDaniels tried to prove he can ‘genius’ his way to success by abandoning the spread package and

Farewell to Old Favourites

I’ve previously talked about what math trades are here. The short version is : mass trades that let you easily make complicated transactions involving hundreds of people. Anyway, another Canada-wide one just finished, and I ended up with a mess of trades. And this time around, some noteworthy games are on their way out the

D’OH!

Work has been good this week. The lazy guy is on vacation, which means that the rest of us are also on vacation as we avoid simmering rage and frustration while he does nothing. Volume is down since New Years is right away and a lot of places stayed closed all week. Nothing out of
