Picked this up today. Can't wait to unleash this on friends and use it  for some applied gaming brainstorm sessions.

#boardgames   #concept   #appliedgames  
 
Played a couple of round of Concept at the local game store and promptly bought my own copy.

It's from the same designer a Dixit and is a rather similar game in terms of scoring. The trick is that you grab a card with a concept (item, animal, title, saying, anything really) and then try to recreate this concept by highlighting pictures on the game board.

So to recreate 'vampire', you could use 'person' + 'food' + 'water' + 'red' for instance. Like Dixit, you have to really gauge your audience. The word silicon might be something one group would describe as a tech/computer concept, while others would skew it towards breast implants. ;P

Excellent to play with friends, but also great to build some team spirit if you're looking for some HR-tools.

How me playing Infamous made me understand all those Assassin's Creed fans out there.

Assassin’s Creed is not a good game. Infamous is not a good game. One causes me to fight, the other one is accepted. Yet both are essentially the same.

Did you ever wonder why December has 31 days?

It's because of Romans.

Drive integration for online mindmapping, woo!
 

We've been testing this quietly for a while, but now we're really excited to be able to announce you can finally organise your Coggles right in Google Drive!

Either install our Chrome app (http://bit.ly/coggle-chrome-app), or use the link at the bottom of your list of Coggles to set things up.

Once activated, any new Coggles you create (including copies) that don't belong to an Organisation will show up right in your Google Drive.

Read more on the blog!

Silicon is fundamental in both. It's also a sealant.

"Here I consider the West to be Western Europe and North America and the East to be the Far East, mainly Japan. Christianity is the main religion in the West. In Japan, the most influential one among the intellectuals has been Zen Buddhism I will examine the differences between these two religions here."

Interesting longread. Enjoy.

Quite possibly the best yakiniku (Korean/Japanese grill) restaurant in Osaka. Consistent atmosphere and casual employees, that nevertheless are very professional. The meat is excellent and the 'secret home made sauce' in old Suntory Whiskey bottles is so good you want to take it home. It's hidden from tourist eyes, but definitely worth the search!
