@Thepunkgeek hey, what about adding a board gaming category to the ?

Gnomads and The Guild meeting in the caverns. Not as friendly as it might seem.

… aaand: Ticket to Ride: My First Journey is a also still fun with the kids. Fast and usually super close.

let's me revisit an oldie and break my solo record: 64 VP in Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age. Still not great, I guess.

After 5 games of Wildlands with my 7yo (we play without Interrupts) I slowly get a feeling for the asymmetry between factions, even for single characters. Fun!

Two weeks ago: Monster Lands 7/10+, Azul 2 and Cryptid both 7.5+

Played Forum Trajanum. Solid, puzzly, but also Stefan Feld reaching new heights of dryness. Mostly good production. Would prefer the quicker Strasbourg from the same author. 6/10

Fabian boosted is now #FOSS! 🎉 We've named the software behind it #WriteFreely.

WriteFreely lets you self-host a single federated blog or a community of blogs. It's written in Go / #golang, it's lightweight, and runs everywhere -- even on a Raspberry Pi! (We tried 😁)

We just launched v0.1 this weekend, and v0.2 is already coming out early this week. You can try a full demo here:

Vacations cont. // Missing AuZtralia which I left at home. Daughter would be interested and solo mode is easy enough for a long autumn evening. Also: mini metal Cthulhu is a great fidget toy :D

Vacations. Observations: The Mind doesn't work with a 6 year old who's not super confident with numbers yet. No Thanks does work and also grandma likes it. „Blank“ fell flat for now; poor card quality; daughter might like it.

Second AuZtralia solo game went much better. Lost 54:55 against the Old Ones, so my strategy (yeah, I had one) almost worked out.

The Kickstarter for AuZtralia has been really smooth. Drama-free campaign and great end product. Now let's see how the game works out. I'll probably be fine with it, but I can see how the random setup of Old Ones and personality card distribution might lead to "swingy" game situations. Lost my first solo game very early (My port destroyed by a Mi-Go) against the Old Ones with 20:31 VP. With a *slighly* different setup it could have been 5:50 …

You can buy 2 at SPIEL'18/Essen (or order to your place, free shipping ;) — which games would it be?

Not going to Essen doesn't equal not geeking out about new releases, right?

Taught Carson City again. Love it, but, but... this brown scoring marker... that's not mine... no... 😑 🔫 🤠

More first times: Pitchcar (yay!), Bonk (hey!), Knister/Würfel Bingo (k), Catacombs and Castells (eh), and [not pictured] Nimble (meh).

Ugh, this book is sticky. Necronomicon, the card that got me the win in Lovecraft Letter. Is the game fun or stupid, or both?
