Re: What are you watching right now?

We're watching two very different crime dramas. One is Spanish, High Seas (Alta Mer). It's set in the late 1940s, on a passenger ship to Brazil. Very intense, very well shot, good acting and casting. The other is Icelandic, Trapped, set in Iceland. A dismembered corpse washes up on shore just as a f...

Re: Simulation Sickness

A lot of games give me motion sickness. It's odd because boats and vehicles almost never bother me, but even some of the Supermarios get me dizzy. I so want to play Minecraft, but I can't.

Re: Grumbly Things Go Here

My mom passed away this week. It was long expected; she'd been very weak and had dementia, and mostly prayed and daydreamed these last months. It occurs to me, thinking of earliest memories, that she drew my first imaginary animals. She oilpainted, and waiting up for Dad on late shifts she'd just do...

Re: Like Riding a Bike

Canoeing. I hope kayaking will be the same. I'm not great, but the muscles know what to do and I don't hurt the next day, as I would after some other hard work.
Calligraphy; I've been competent at about three scripts, but not learned any new ones, for ages.

Re: Random board game thoughts

Thanks. I was looking at them. The game I'm making is called Where Do You Put Your Backpack When You Fight, and is a tile-flipping, resource-carrying, dungeon exploration game. As usual I was halted by the need for an illustrator, when I remembered my god-daughter, (whom I gave her first set of poly...

Anyone have any experience with print-on-demand or self-publishing of your board games?

Re: Projects

She's close to completing the art. I did the cavern tiles myself, because I like rocks and like my caverns to have the natural shape of a rock cavern; and I drew the Critters that inhabit the dungeon. I'll need help now with all the formatting and moving her images onto their places in whatever thin...

Re: What boardgames are you playing?

I've been playtesting a game I'm working on, "Where Do You Put Your Backpack When You Fight?". It's a tile-flipping exploration and loot-management game. It's playable, economic of table-space, and fits in a 5" square box, and takes about half an hour to play. It can be solo, duo, mul...

Re: Projects

I have an artist for my game! Our goddaughter is doing the multitudinous little sketches. The art is perfect for the game: clear, sized to fit on the cards with room for other details, and she even thought of colour. She says she doesn't want paying, but if I pay her it can go on her resume. So I sh...
