This got me more excited for the movie than any trailer.

#Geekway Day 2 Reviews:

Sushi! Go!: Simple fun, game. Probably a buy
Dungeon Raider: Fun, Ericka really liked it. 
Alhambra: We all enjoyed this. Buy
Carcassonne South Seas: Fun. I think I prefer the original game a little more. No buy
Paradise Fallen: Could have been a fun game but instructions and design elements made the game so frustrating to learn and remember details that it's a no buy. 

Ericka also liked Tsuro of the Sea and Skull and Roses from yesterday.

So, first day of geekway2west.com was a fun success.

I got some really nice pulls on the pre-registration games.  Ended up with Warhammer 40K Horus Heresy and Battue with an Expansion for my wife and I. The value of these games is essentially the cost I paid to pre-register so essentially I bought a game and get to play the weekend for free.

Highlights of the games played today: 

Skull and Roses: Fun; probably a buy
Tsuro: Fun but...
Tsuro of the Seas: More fun; probably a buy
Kings of Air and Steam: Fun but the design seemed lacking. No buy.

Also, picked up discounted scatch and ding copies of Dixit and Love Letter.

Three more days. Then I might be sick of board games for a bit.

And I got a couple unique captures in Ingress to boot.

A 40% rise in accidents during the second trimester and the women are still safer then male drivers around that age bracket.

Expectant mothers are more likely to get into serious car crashes, a study finds. The risk is highest in the second trimester, when accident rates are similar to those for people with sleep apnea.

Inflammatory headline, but still a good read.

Witnessing all these shootings and killings creates a constant state of terror within minorities, not altogether different from the effect larger populations feel witnessing passenger planes flying into buildings, or gunmen cutting their way through schools and shopping malls, or children blowing themselves up in cramped bazaars. The issue doesn't involve absolute numbers; it involves the effect of knowing that at any time, your number could come up.

The difference is that when the Boston Marathon is bombed, or people fly planes into buildings, or an aggrieved loner goes on a killing spree, we, as a society, pursue justice to the very ends of the earth, if only to sleep better at night. When killer cops rarely, if ever, even step foot in court, let alone get convicted, the absence of immediate justice or punishment leads to an unaddressed fear. It's a fear of ubiquity; a fear that the carnage can be easily replicated, virtually anywhere, by virtually anyone; a fear that our lives don't matter.
Last Saturday, Walter Scott was driving his Mercedes in North Charleston, S.C., when he was pulled over by police officer Michael Slager for driving with a broken taillight. Scott had a complicated life, as many of us do. He was employed and engaged; he owed back child support; in all likelihood he really didn’t want to go to jail. When Slager approached, Scott ran.

Nearly two decades ago, a massive wave struck a container ship and dumped nearly 5 million Legos pieces into the ocean. Today, they are still washing up on shores in England.

Great food and great drinks. The burgers and fish tacos are the stars among many great options to pick from. A well-curated selection of beers both on tap and in bottles. You won't find A-B products here. Cocktails are also delicious.
