Pinned toot

Hello! My name is Robert, and I have migrated my accounts from several other instances to start this board game instance.

I love games, ala The Gaia Project and Through the Ages as well as most board war games. I clip my counters.

I also am interested in , , , , , and

I plan on posting lots of pics of games played and projects worked on.

After just 18 hours on Mastodon I am already starting to feel at home.

Thanks for the warm welcome and friendly conversations.

A few pics from yesterday of the games that were pulled out. Even went outside because the day was too beautiful :D
Patchwork, Tammany Hall, Kubb and Paris Connection are pictured, but also got to pull out some T2RNY, Catan, Timeline and 6 Takes (6 Nimpt).

I also use evernote to capture image data and PDFs than taking actual notes in it. Usually scan documents from an office printer to email => OCR'd PDF database. That is what I am kinda hoping to replace.

Are there any good opensource Evernote alternatives? If Evernote ever goes away I am screwed. I have nearly 10 years of data in there. Bonus for an alternative that will OCR PDFs and images.

Enjoy having your mind blown.

If you're a programmer, this is a must read.


I think my new avatar has way to much motion... 🤢

My most recent commission (for someone right here on masto)! Quite happy w/ it and was real fun to do #mastoart #commissions #scifi

When I was a teenager, I collected/played obscure . Bushido, Talislanta amoung others. I really miss that time / community. As an adult it is hard to make the time to read through rules and find other people that are willing to play strange games with you...

Did you ever play something other than D&D?

In other news, a blank piece of paper in a typewriter is very intimidating. I know why a lot of writers drink loads of alcohol. Makes you less afraid of typing on that perfectly white space...

is rad. I have been using it nearly 20 years. I still learn new stuff.

5 player Sidereal Confluence! In hindsight, the tablecloth may have been a bad choice.

New here and new to mastodon. If I’m doin it wrong lemme know 😅 best way to say hi to board game folk is with a selfie I think.

Just learned that Häagen-Dazs is a completely made up name. Is there nothing real in the world anymore?äagen

Just watched the mother! Well that was unusual and very uncomfortable.
