There's a deck-building game called Star Realms that's been gaining some popularity over this year - mainly because it plays very well as a fast and furious 2-player game (there are 3 and 4-player variants, but it slows it down a lot), and it's also a cheap  game with a [physical] cost of $15 for enough cards for 2 players..

They're releasing a digital version of the game now, and it's already out for Android, with PC and iOS versions coming soon. Android version's free to try too.

I've been waiting for someone to go this route with music - though I thought selling Album-Creation-as-a-Service ("If we raise $1 mil we'll record an album and provide it free") would come first. I can see this way as something that can easily collapse though - especially since it has to have a level of production added to it.
Wu-Tang's aim is to use the album as a springboard for the reconsideration of music as art, hoping that the approach will help restore recorded music to a place alongside visual art--and change the music business in the process.

Parking at the hotel was convenient, and the hotel rooms were spacious, well lit and well stocked for food, water, etc.

Conveniently located near the metro stop, the food is generally good and the alcohol menu has variety (they distribute a page with beers listed on one side, other drinks on the back). At the bar you can order food and drink, and the bartenders are usually pretty accessible. Atmosphere is reasonable, though a little noisy for a large group - you can get a booth but expect slower service. Overall a pleasant experience that could get a little pricey if you're there for a long time.

I find their food quality underwhelming on a good day, and on the brink of being overpriced. The conveyor belt and centralized location are the most attractive aspects of this place. A few basic things are usually OK: like salmon or shrimp. But the less you eat there, the happier you'll be.

A good place for sushi or ramen if you're looking for it. Not fantastic in either category (though I'd personally place the ramen higher than the sushi), but a good option if you're in the area. Prices are typical for the area; location and hours are usually pretty good though.

During weekdays it's not very crowded about half the time, which makes for fast lines. That said, staffing fluctuates widely: some don't add a lot of meat (ask and they will usually add a little more); some don't keep up with food components running low.

Great stadium for watching a baseball game. Good seating and a better variety of food options than other stadiums I've been to. Additionally, good public transportation, with 2 Green Line stops, and a Red line stop not too terribly far away.

Fairly quick fast casual food that gets their menu updated fairly regularly. They have a few nice conveniences for Silver Spring: free WiFi, ample seating, and a good location (with exits both to get through to the mall, and to get onto Ellsworth).
