Incompetence all around
I am currently at the World Boardgaming Championships.  The event is great so far, and I have had moderate success.  By which I mean I have won a lot of games, gotten through some playoff rounds, but have yet to place in any events.  That is all well and fi...

Teenage problems
This past Friday Wendy and I were walking with Elli to a family dinner outing and had a conversation about teenage problems.  Specifically we were discussing what Elli would or could do in all kinds of situations surrounding alcohol.  Initially I just wante...

Greed
Recently I have been watching a few videos where prominent Hearthstone players try to fix random players' decks.  There are a lot of common threads in these videos, and by far the thing that I have seen come out of them is this:  Stop being so greedy. Serio...

A lack of solidarity
The other day I was talking with someone about the BLM disruption of the Toronto Pride parade.  He was surprised that it happened because he figured Pride must already be incredibly inclusive and sensitive to racial issues - after all, since queer people ar...

Disrupting the disruptors
At the Pride parade this past weekend there was quite a hiccup - Black Lives Matter protesters staged a sit in, blocking the parade from moving for 30 mins .  The standoff ended when a Pride representative signed an agreement that BLM insisted on, and event...

Its good to be lord
This weekend I played a game of Lords of Waterdeep for the first time and I am having trouble figuring out if I love it or hate it.  Lords is a board game that advertises itself as being of moderate length but ends up taking forever because of people trying...

Mud, and more mud
This past weekend I attended the Tough Mudder event I have been training for these past few months.  I had lots of worries about things that might stop me from completing the event, but I finished and had a wonderful time. It was really messy.  No, messier ...

Being skilled
I am tinkering with Heroes By Trade again, trying to work out if skills are being the thing I want them to be.  Right now the basic mechanic is that you roll 1d8, add your Aspect bonus (Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, Intelligence, Willpower, Presence) a...

Issues of style
I have been training for World Boardgaming Championships.  Since the game I am submitting for my team is Puerto Rico, I need to play a bunch of games of it to get back into fighting shape.  Years ago I was really familiar with the interface on BSW, but this...

Standing oddly
My workout routine has given me a lot of things to think about.  One of those things is "Holy crap it is hard to get six pack abs."  Seriously!  I started off doing three sets of crunches, 20 per set.  Now I am up to 120 crunches per set, and I can feel the...

Our heroes
I have a problem with heroes sometimes.  Last week I watched Fast and Furious 6, and while I got the ridiculous driving and fighting scenes I expected, I also got a taste of heroism that left me troubled.  Part of the film involves the villain getting captu...
