Have you gotten it yet? Look me on on there "rburkej" is my Playdek account name. 
‘Twilight Struggle’ is widely considered to be one of the best board games ever created, but its dense rules and hours-long playtime means most copies end up gathering dust.

When game designer Jane McGonigal found herself bedridden and suicidal following a severe concussion, she had a fascinating idea for how to get better. She dove into the scientific research and created the healing game, SuperBetter. In this moving talk, McGonigal explains how a game can boost resilience — and promises to add 7.5 minutes to your life.

One does not "read" the ASL rules as much as one absorbs them.

Most artificial intelligence researchers still discount the idea of an “intelligence explosion” that will outstrip human capabilities.

I look forward to another get together, but bad timing on all these dates I'm afraid.

Without the multitude of minds that created a program capable of beating a Go game master, the contest would have been a no-go.

Story
Tagline
I am a sinner, saved by Grace. Soli Deo gloria.
Introduction
I am an avid gamer. (Pen and paper, cardboard and plastic.) I love sci-fi, fantasy and great storytelling. 

I have a great love of music. Any kind that stirs my soul. And coffee. I really love listening to great music while drinking coffee. Even more than that, I love reading the Bible with my wife, while listening to great music, drinking great coffee.

I also have a passion for Jesus and His church. I am an Online Minister, Distributed Elder and Server Manager for Northland, A Church Distributed. My wife and I also host a distributed church called Abel House. I feel His church is best represented by many expressions, including large corporate gatherings and smaller, more intimate ones.
