Played Monsterhearts for the first time.  It was the first role playing game for everyone involved, good times were had.

The Cast:

A wealthy Queen that was tired of her old high school and is looking for a new challenge.

A traumatized Vampire that ran away from his family and the teacher that abused him.

A North-Korean Ghoul that escaped his country but bit by zombies, has powerful cravings for chaos and flesh but still want to do well in school and go to college.

A sympathetic Fae that lives with a grandmother that mistakes the Fae for her long dead child.

Events:

The Ghoul snitches on the Queen to gain favor of the teacher. The Fae attempts to blackmail the Queen and the Vampire, the vampire tries to hypnotize her but fails, in the end neither side got what they wanted. The Queen and the Vampire follows the Fae home for revenge after school, but is interrupted when the Ghoul breaks in to Fae's house and ate the grandmother's leg.

The Ghoul plays it cool and convince the Fae that it was a bear. The Fae is marginally convinced, but consider the lie as a promise. The vampire runs into his old math teacher into a coffee shop, the one that abused him and drove him away.

Can games be too cut throat?

It's only too cutthroat if you're playing with people who either don't like conflict or are not cut out for the obvious back-stabbing that will occur in some games.  

I always hear of people's horror stories about Diplomacy, but I've never seen an argument in ANY of the games I've played of it.  Dune usually results in more grumpy players than Diplomacy ever has.  

But even modern games like Dominant Species is cutthroat and will set people off that aren't expecting it.  We now know not to play it with one particular guy in our group, as he takes things way too personally.  

So the games being cutthroat aren't bad, and not necessarily a cause for immediate problems IF you're playing with the correct players that can handle a game like that.

I tried to find this today but my local game store doesn't have it, despite listing it on their website. I might just have to order it.

Can games be too mathy or calculation heavy? Where do you draw the line?

Well, I do not really care about additions or multiplications, but I really find graph exploration to be tedious, and usually dislike games that require that kind of work. This mostly include games with strong tactical element such as abstracts (e.g., Chess) or placement games (e.g., Agricola).

I wrote a article for trollitc.com exploring what "fun" means for tabletop gamers. Hope you can check it out and let me know what you think.

Thanks +Ben Gerber  for the opportunity!

一日段子荟萃  5-20  #一日段子荟萃

@转笔刀侠:渔船被劫持的消息传进我军兵营,各级指战员们强忍悲愤,咬牙苦练叠被子,叠好的被子都被泪水打湿了一大片。一位小战士哽咽着说:如果敌人胆敢走上街头示威,我一定会把他们撕成碎片。

@shangguanluan:大连渔船的消息很快传遍了兲朝,张召忠看着桌子上的海带炖排骨,筷子一拍,将海带全部捐到了前线。

@连鹏:台湾渔民被菲律宾射杀,全世界都知道了,我们的官媒也大肆报道,甚至还有人批马英九软弱。可我们的渔船被扣押勒索,两周了既没报道,有关部门也不吭声,让人心寒。当国不知有民,民就不知有国。总要求人民爱政府,可人民最无助的时候,政府在哪里?人民最需要的时候,政府在哪里?

@laoyang945:罗援:一直在关注中国渔船被朝鲜扣留事件,今天从媒体上得知中国驻朝鲜大使馆已证实确有其事,非常气愤!朝鲜也欺人太甚,缺钱,也不能越界抓人、讹钱,朝方必须根据中国政府要求,尽快放船、放人和切实保障我被扣船员生命财产安全与合法权益,否则,恶有恶报! #高级黑无误

@弹弓子E:朝鲜再次绑架我渔民,我方鹰派将领大怒,决定让目无尊长的小兄弟尝尝报应的滋味。各路爱国英雄好汉头包白围巾齐聚一堂,群情激愤,怒吼声此起彼伏。鹰派少将走上台拿起话筒:金三胖屡屡触犯我朝天威,是可忍孰不可忍!大家准备好了吗?台下:准备好了!少将:好,大家跟我喊:画个圈圈诅咒你、诅咒你!

@弹弓子E:俄罗斯炮击中国船,爱国贼不敢抗议,俄罗斯人民感到祖国很强大;菲律宾扫射中国渔民,爱国贼不敢抗议,菲律宾人民感到祖国很强大;朝鲜军舰屡次侵入中国海域绑票,爱国贼不敢抗议,朝鲜人民感到祖国很强大;中国把对抗拆迁的给揍了,把上访的给抓了,把自己人的日本车给砸了,爱国贼也感到祖国很强大。

@roseluqiu:新华社躺着中枪,明明新华社那条被引用的新闻页面上写着2012年5月20日。不过大家好健忘,去年此时,不也是很多人心系被朝鲜扣押的中国渔民,在微博上谈论吗?时间流逝,原来没有改变。

@作家崔成浩:武汉大学生,不小心撞坏一个老太太手腕,竟被索赔30万!看了这段新闻,朝鲜人民军抓了16个渔民才要60万,都不好意思说。
 
@琢磨先生: 80后为何暮气沉沉?因为50后老头老太太在勒索我们的金钱,60后在抢我们的女朋友当小三,70后握着我们的饭碗准备把我们榨干.......

@bigman510:【环球时报:半殖民地的余毒仍在影响国人自信】中国需要出现一批高度自信的知识精英及舆论精英,他们不仅认同国家政治道路,相信国家未来,而且心胸宽阔,让一部分有影响力的人先自信起来,中国社会的自信就有了重要的附着点。

@hnjhj:让一部分人先自信起来,进而实现共同自信!不管黑猫白猫,自信的就是好猫!摸着石头自信!#环球时报自信论

@selifi:一老外在桥上,看河里有一人问:“你在干嘛呢?”河里人答:“摸石头”!老外问:“摸石头干嘛?”河里人说:“过河”老外说“这不是有桥吗?”河里人说“我还带着渔网呢,顺便捞点鱼。”老外问“你到底是想过河还是想捞鱼”河里人“你傻X啊,老子是打着过河的幌子捞鱼而已,直接说捞鱼会被人骂的!”

@songma:世界上最文明、开放和个人自由最多的国家地区,比如美国,北欧,在对待儿童问题上都严格到了偏执的程度。和维基泄密的阿桑奇发生性关系的甚至都是成年女性,而且自愿,只是在过程提出某些反对而得不到尊重,就把阿桑奇告得全球乱跑。反倒是某些号称严格管制的社会,对儿童问题却稀松得令人拍案惊奇。

@straightbar:毛泽东那一代的共产党,是原教旨,做恶滔天时对自己说,我可以用最残忍无耻的手段,来实现最美好的理想!到了习主席这,理想没了,谎话说尽了,就剩下一口匪气,习主席说:咱们就不装样了,是男儿,就用最卑鄙无耻的手段,来保卫我们最肮脏血腥的权力和财富吧。

@gzdxxd:转新浪微博:【编写抗日剧的三大困惑】如果完全按照史实写吧,就是”美化国民党“;若是极力渲染国民党贪污腐败、大吃大喝、乱搞女人吧,就是“影射当今社会”;索性当“神话”来创作,又属于“过度娱乐”,恶搞主旋律。唉,不写也罢!

@新闻已死:北京台放《大宅门》。别你妈意淫了,我只想告诉一些蠢货,同仁堂的老板乐松生,在1956年积极配合我党搞公私合营;到了文革开始,被彻底打倒,夫妻俩每天被游街,老婆悲愤自杀,乐松生也在1968年被殴打致死,年仅60岁。

@na_sheishei:【成都商报:调查显示公务员个人幸福感最低】网友评论:中国有世界上最“傻”的人民:大家争着去找幸福感低的工作。

@bigman510:【金正恩夫妇访少年团野营所】网友评论:孩子们没见过胖子,吓坏了......

@马伯庸:据说今天是告白日,可惜很多人只能做到三分之二。

@duqin64: 百度其实是个宣传工具。搜索百度的结果,全是对当局有利的,不利的全部被过滤了。没有公允性的媒体或网络,就是愚民工具。

@xie107:她拽住了他的衣角,“今天……表白日哦……”“哦”,他轻声应道,随后扔下了100块钱……#520

@小麦店店长:情人节告白愚人节告白告白日告白光棍节告白,可是孩子,世界上只分为两种人:任何时候告白都能泡到手的,和任何时候告白都会被拒绝的。和时间没有任何关系。

@missparadox:党委办公室文员九年来谎称入党申请书不及格,挽救500申请入党小青年。正能量!

@yjc2020:刚刚去楼下看到两小破孩吵架,甲对乙说:“你信不信我打你爹”?乙说:“不信”。然后甲果断的抽了自己俩嘴巴,转身走了。留下乙独自在风中凌乱,缓缓说道:这是中国外交部的种啊......

@starvii:从前有个很喜欢漂亮衣服的皇帝,有一天来了两个骗子说,他们可以造出世界上最漂亮的衣服,但是只有聪明的人能看得见。皇帝穿上这件衣服举行了游行大典,觉得十分满意,于是颁布诏令:以后全城的女人都必须穿这套衣服上街。
