Introduced AuZtralia (Martin Wallace, 2018) to my strategy gamer friends yesterday – aaaand, as expected, they hated it 🤣 We had fun and all were happy to have tried it but the last 1/3 of the game was merely bitching around about imbalances, luck factor, wonky combat etc. After the fact we still discussed strategies, so maybe it's not so stupid after all. I mean, I like it, but for folks who want 100% control over their fate (esp. in a 3h game) AuZtralia is not the best fit. 🇦🇺 🐙 🏜️

Employer gives you a smartphone. Who pays for the protective case (if the employee feels better using one)?

Worst Apex Legends player ever. Challenge me! Sigh.

Played Patchwork first time non-digitally last night – after having the app installed for years on my phone. Besides the table space required for the initial circle of tiles it works very well, as expected. Classic.

Es befasst sich jemand bei der Produktion von Lovecraft-Style Produkten mit dem Rassismus des Autors.
Seit ich von dieser Problematik weiß, scheint es mir als würde das Thema totgeschwiegen.

Another company Game Night (after a 13 months hiatus). Two pretty fun rounds of Greed (D. X. Vaccarino, 2014), the mobster-themed and slightly nsfw (the irony!) card drafting game. I just like it.

Visited a couple of #boardgame stores in #Budapest (#GemKlub & #szellemlovas). But the surprise find is #BarCraft which has video & #boardgames you can play with while enjoying some interesting concoctions: such as funky Harley Quinn or potent Tattooine Tea.

Finally played Wildlands with the Interrupt rule (which I house-ruled away before for my kids). The game was fun before, but Interrupt really adds a lot of tension and surprising twists.

Happy Holidays, everybody! May they be as relaxed and fulfilling as possible. Enjoy your family, but also enjoy yourself – it's totally fine to celebrate alone or in a non-family context. Or online. Or not at all. 💓

Having a low-key moment with my "400+ songs of 2019 I still need to check out" playlist.

In good news: we finally have a date for our company's next game night. Early January! yay!

My biweekly gaming group has been cancelled. Too few participants in the last months. Not sure if it will continue next year. 😔

I think I never spoke to more than 500 people at the same time before.

A week ago my usual 1-viewer-stream was raided by some Twitch celeb with 2500 viewers. That was … interesting. 😅 Suddenly I have a tiny community over there.
