What I have enjoyed this year.
What I look for in a solo. (Although they don’t have to tick all boxes)
Quick setup and pack away. Campaign.
Good feel of narrative.
Session length of about an hour.
Im really looking for next years big solo game that I can start and play in several sessions over the year or be an ongoing campaign. The perfect game would basically be a solo rpg in board game format. Any ideas?
So im going to have a little bit of spare cash coming up and I would like to plump for a new solo board game. So here are two questions for you lot.
1) I have been thinking about scythe but it feels like it will take forever solo. Ling setup, long play, long pack up. How long in your experience does it take solo?
2) do you have any suggestions for great solos? Details in following toot
non parents tell you how to parent.
People who have no kids and have never had to care for one full time spend a lot of time telling me exactly what looking after a child is like and how best to raise one.
This is odd because us parents at the coal face trying to get some food into a screaming 2yo that is having a tantrum because they are wearing the socks that they choose to wear have absolutely no idea what’s going on.
We literally do looking after kids as a full time job and have no idea.
I gave them a bit of guidance on how to look up solutions for problems on duckduckgo and now they have a couple of aliases set in their .bashrc for things they do regularly. Asked if they felt the need to go back to windows they replied “absolutely not, im quite enjoying learning all this stuff.“
People, now is the time. Switch to Linux it has never been easier!
Remember how I mentioned that one of the people at work was buying a new laptop without Windows installed and was going to give Linux a go? Few weeks in and with a tiny bit of guidance:
* Installed elementary and decided it wasn’t for him.
* Installed Mint.
* Upgraded the kernel himself to get wifi working.
* Found open source alternatives to some windows only software they used.
This is someone who isn’t particularly computer smart and had no idea how they worked.
Ethics of walking in Cricket.
“Kant gives another formulation to the categorical imperative: “Act always in such a way that you treat other people as an end in themselves, and not as a means to an end”. We should not view our fellow cricketers as the means to our own pleasure. They also have hopes, dreams and fears. You owe them the truth. Walk.”
