This past weekend we spend the holiday in the snow at a friend's cabin. We had a blast and the snow was so nice and fluffy. And very, very deep. be sure and watch 'til the end for best results.

We love camping and there are a couple of games themed for the camping lifestyle. Problem is, which is better?

Trekking the National Parks ($50) https://amzn.to/2WYgX0s
In Trekking the National Parks players take part in a race across the country- their goal is to earn the most points by claiming National Parks and collecting bonus Stones. Players must jockey for position along the game's trails and make tough tactical decisions at every turn to emerge victorious! (KS - https://goo.gl/srZ7ai)

PARKS: The Board Game ($39) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/keymastergames/parks-the-board-game
PARKS is a celebration of our National Parks featuring illustrious art from Fifty-Nine Parks Print Series. In PARKS, players will take on the role of two hikers as they trek through different trails across four seasons of the year. While on the trail, these hikers will take actions and collect memories of the sites they visit—memories being the resources in the game. Players will trade in these memories to collect National Park cards, mementos, at the end of each hike. You'll be able to purchase equipment and fill canteens to make your hikes more efficient, but at the the end of the year, it's the Park cards and photos you have collected along your journey that will win you the game. Welcome to PARKS!

So one of the Principals at my office does some acting on the side and he shared this story from the commercial below.

So, you know how when you see those commercials where someone is running up a hill or through a countryside – or maybe driving a car on some exotic journey – you do know the part you see them running or driving or whatever they’re doing is the ONLY time they’re actually do it – right?

It’s called action/cut/return to first position.

Well, I arrived on this location high above San Francisco via cab as I was told there was very limited parking for the first setup.

So we wrap the first setup and the director tells us to follow the crew to the next location – they’ll drive slow.

And it was like… follow you to the next location?

You mean ride the bikes to the next location?

And then it was like – hey, what happened to the Talent being brought to the next location?

Anyway, as turned out there were 3 next locations covering somewhere around 9 miles which in the end made the laugher you see very real because we were wondering and laughing about where we were going to ride next.

And while it got really cold as we were out there about 5 hours in the end it was really fun and of course something to joke about later.

"With the loss of Hornet and serious damage to Enterprise, the Battle of Santa Cruz was a Japanese victory, but at an extremely high cost," said Rear Admiral (Ret.) Samuel Cox, director of Naval History and Heritage Command, in a statement. "About half the Japanese aircraft engaged were shot down by greatly improved U.S. Navy anti-aircraft defenses.

"As a result, the Japanese carriers did not engage again in battle for almost another two years."

So as you move to other social media networks, some let you use emoji rather than a stock icon. Which emoji best replaces the +1 from G+?

My friend picked up the Kingdom Builder BIG BOX set this week and I wanted to compare it to my Compact Box where I fit the base game and all expansions into the base game box.

And if you're looking for the cool token tray I created, you can find that here ...

This game doesn't get to the table nearly enough but I really want this expansion.

*You can now have an impact on the radioactivity level of you opponents. Spend Collection Points to reduce your own, and increase your opponents’!
*You can get a new kind of food, that feeds an entire room, no matter how many Survivors are in it.
*You can built a little Robot, that acts as a 5th Hero (with a Strength of 2). This little fella never suffers from nor applies Pressure. This really pushes you to rethink all your moving patterns, and rediscover the game!
*You can now enroll Scientists. They act as Survivors, but with a little extra: they can double the points you earn with the completed symbols found on the Equipment tiles.
*You can also fix Equipment tiles during the Day phase without having the required Resources, neat!
