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.

Celebrated 25 years of (The Settlers of) Catan yesterday by introducing the original version to my kids. Aaaaand I got crushed, basically by both of them. :D

OK folks, time for an essential #poll.

“With a rested/relaxed face (and without a mirror, obviously), I can see…”

I almost never completely break with favorite bands or music of past me. Usually I still like them a bit, forget them, accept them for what they meant to me; or even get more tolerant, e.g. towards stuff I hated in my teens. One recent exception: a band I've liked, seen live, but really can barely stand anymore today (insta-skip): The National. Weird.

Two favorite songs from last karaoke 🎤 session: Sinatra – New York, New York & Tame Impala — Feels Like We Only Go Backwards. I can only do very deep or very high. In-between my voice breaks. 😝

(totally not spamming follow requests from multiple accounts — feel free to pick and/or ignore :)

Is there a PeerTube instance focussed on video- and/or boardgaming? Thinking about saving some of my Twitch "highlights" for the future.

#BottosCon Day 2, Game 3: _Wir Sind Das Volk 2+2_ the game I've been most eager to bring to the table. High tension in the waning days of the 1980s as nuclear tensions threatened to tip over the brink into the final war.

In the end, we had an East Germany who never built in wall and survived into the modern era with a functional socialist economy, breaking free of the Soviet leash, while the USA turned its ambitions toward space. A hopeful alternate history.

📺 Now live: Part 2 of my 🎮 Thimbleweed Park . Audio: eng w/ ger subs. A weird murder mystery crime adventure, with me clicking around cluelessly: twitch.tv/kommadieb

Two quick rounds of ⚔ Wildlands fun with my son. Final score: 1 - 1. Rematch scheduled for today.

The one problem I have with 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Clans of Caledonia. If you want to win, it’s all about fulfilling contracts. I understand, the crux is how to do as many as possible, and the clans support many different ways; but still, in my 25-ish games in the vast majority of cases the winner was at least tied regarding the amount of contracts fulfilled. What I want from a future expansion: make it so I can win even with 2 (or more) contracts behind.

The implementation of Clans of Caledonia on BoardGameArena ist very well done. Highly recommended, great game!

Am I burned out of No Man’s Sky already? Is the story worth pursuing? I watched streamers that are much(?) farther than me, but the gameplay doesn’t seem to evolve. Should I try multiplayer mode?
