Only one reason

There was only one reason to make a dice game version of Sushi Go, and it was so that this pun could be made... #gaming #puns #humor #sushi #dicegames #dice

Gaming In the New Year

Since I was taking NYEDay off as a personal holiday, and the Bean was in day care for the day, I decided to wrangle up a few friends and get some gaming in to close out the year.

First, a quick game of Onitama to pass the time as one person showed up and we waited for the other. That's my "Chess-like" (2p, abstract, board movement, capture) game of choice at the moment; it's enough like Chess that it's easy for most people to understand, enough things about the game state change that you don't need to be able to think 10-20 moves ahead (which I just can't), and there's enough variability between games that it hasn't been solved.

I finally obtained a copy of Castles of Burgundy for my birthday a couple of weeks ago, and for our first play, we missed a major rule. (Turns out you have to place tiles adjacent to other tiles on your board! Whoops!) So we broke it out again and tried it, this time correctly. Surprisingly, our scores were almost as high as they were that first game, but the grouping was incredibly tight: 207-... show more

I miss gaming. We've fallen into the trap of "we have a toddler, therefore we are no longer independent entities with our own interests." :-(

There are a lot of traps like that. I fell into the trap of we moved and I don't know anyone and stayed there for years. Found a group at work, and then when they fell apart, fell back into that same mindset. #PbF and #Pbem broke me out of that mold. I still haven't tried any live remote gaming platforms, but that seems an option too. I've come to the conclusion that it's just a matter of re-framing what gaming means for your situation, at least for me.

Yes please!

I have tile placement games. I have role selection games. I have medieval themed games. I have resource management games.

I would still make room on my shelf for this.
