Lazy weekend afternoons demand homemade culinary fun: my first Focaccia–which I'm pumped that it didn't suck–spinach salad with lemon vinaigrette, and a french roast, single espresso.

More and more offline retailers are heading online so that they can take advantage of everything that the world wide web has to offer. But just because you’ve seen a bunch of success with your brick-and-mortar business doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to see the same results online! Even the savviest offline retailer can see …

I'm excited today. In the last few weeks I created and prototyped a new game to sell for parents, teachers, or just anyone who likes puzzles. I got the first ever copy in the mail this afternoon: "Cheechowban" (七巧板), named for the phonetic Mandarin pronunciation of "Tangram", the 7 piece Chinese puzzle. I didn't even want to open it up and mess up the nice Shrink wrap that The Game Crafter​ put on. Naturally I will be selling the game on my own NerdPlaythings.com​, TGC, and TeachersPayTeachers.com​ for $19.99. The game Includes 24 puzzles and 24 templates, so it is a whole classroom set that a teacher can use, although there's no reason adults can't play too, including solo– I mess with a wooden tangram on my desk from time to time. 

In the game, you cut out the pieces of the ancient Chinese puzzle (which dates back to 900AD) and either replicate the template cards from memory, against competitors or just for fun. Playing builds spatial reasoning and  fosters both memory and creativity depending on how you play.

It can possibly be a fidget toy for certain ADD/ADHD children as well, to let them mess with to help them focus as you read or talk to them.

Post workout meal. Because protein shakes are too much money, and cooking is more fun than drinking goop.
