I was trying to get some shots of some interesting cloud formations as I left work yesterday, and Google Awesomed it into a pretty cool little GIF.

11 species if you count the evil paranormal one that should be killed, right +Amy Rich and +Doug Bailey? 
The panther chameleon changes color to display itself. When scientists did a genetic work up on it, they found out that behind its display it was hiding 10 extra species. Check out a flow chart that can give you a hint as to which panther chameleon you’re looking at.

Bonus game night tonight at my place; Cthulhu Wars was the main game of the evening. The Black Goat, the Crawling Chaos, and not-so-mighty Cthulhu were the factions. I couldn't get the cthulhian war machine started, and Nyarlathotep ran away with the game.

It really was just fun from beginning to end.
Did I say fun, I meant mayhem.  :)

Played The Castles of Mad King Ludwig for the first time last night. Mine wasn't so much a castle as it was a few small buildings scattered around some land.

It's interesting, but I need another couple of plays to form a more concrete opinion. The scoring for each tile isn't as interesting as the scoring in Suburbia, and whichever player is the Master Builder each round (it rotates around the table) puts the available buildings in whatever order he chooses in the market. For me, that means paying an inordinate amount of attention to what other people are doing. Perhaps with more plays, it will be easier.

Oh, and that's Mad Queen Zoë the cat, looking on.

It's funny; I expected Suburbia's straightforwardness and plainness to be underwhelming, but it's a subtly excellent game. On the other hand, I expected this one to be more interesting, but it's the one that underwhelmed. Again, I'll give it more plays.

Visited a friend in Maine where we played Paths of Glory for the first time. Even though we were at it for seven hours, we had to play the short game - 10 out of a possible 20 turns. Technically, we fought to a draw. However, were we able to play to the end, I'm certain his Central Powers would have beaten my allies. He knocked Italy completely out of the war and was attacking France from the south. My Russians were making hash out of the Austro-Hungarians, but I doubt it would have been enough, and the Americans were no where to be seen.

This is a fantastic card-driven game. Trying to deal with more problems than we actually can, as well as finding the right balance of card use (operations versus events) is wonderfully maddening. I can't wait to play again.

VASSAL: www.vasseline.org. GMT has a module you can play  either live games or play by email using dropbox or regular email. And the intro scenario is 3 turns. But, this game rocks. I love it.

My sailboat has yet to have the masts attached. I rented the canal for its shakedown cruise. This is our first play of Shipyard. I think we're all overly ambitious with our first ships; they're all stupidly large. I'm very much enjoying it; I already can't wait to play again.
