Hey everyone. I just heard about a game that's LIKE Tzolkin, called Egizia. From what I read on BGG, it's like Tzolkin & Tokaido had a baby. Has anybody here played it?

One of my favourite games, play it often. Not sure how it relates to tzolkin. It does pre date both those games. Badly deserves a reprint

So +Paul Slawson posted earlier about 504, by Friedemann Friese. I didn't realize this was from a series to be released by Stronghold Games called the Great Designer Series. 504 is #2 in that series, which led me to ask...what's #1? It's a game to be ready for pre-order in November ( after the #2 game is released, but whatever) called Porta Nigra. It looks interesting - like a mashup between T'zolkin and Carcassonne. Just curious, is this on anybody else's radar? I hadn't heard of it before.

I feel like this thread is a case of the blind leading the blind ;p

But seriously I'm really interested in both. Stronghold Games is doing some fantastic work!

Summertime Post: Dropped My Phone In the Pool
It's currently sitting in a container of rice - we only had about 1.5 cups left in the house, so it will have to do. It was sitting in the pool for about 2 minutes before I could fetch it out. This is not a post asking for help to revive my phone.

I'm looking at a few options. They are:
Nexus 6
Samsung Galaxy Note 4
OnePlus One
Sony Xperia Z3
HTC One M7

What I Want In a Phone
I am looking for something with a bigger screen than my Nexus 4 had - I do a lot of book reading and website-recipe viewing on it. I need a big memory capability because I have a couple large apps (and a lot of books and music) that take up so much room. I also want something that doesn't make me look like an idiot when I use it in public as a phone. I definitely want an Android, and the less bloatware on the phone, the better. I will probably root it. I need an unlocked phone.

What I Have Read So Far
I have read some reviews about the OnePlus phone, that they didn't update as promised and people are still running old versions of Android. I have read some reviews that the Galaxy Note has purple hue at the top of the screen, and that Samsung isn't a quality phone company. I looked at the Blu and read that it had a lot of problems with touch screen sensitivity, so I decided to take that off my list.

If you have any personal experience with any of these phones, I would like to hear about it. A touch of your opinions is needed.

Eh. Not all Androids are that good. Google's own had rebooted on me countless times. I'd never switch away from Android, but switch to a different distribution.

I'll be buying a Remix Mini in the future. Remix OS is a Windows 10 style Android distro.

I'm hoping Remix OS takes off, teams up with Android x86, supports AMD64 and converges with GNU/Linux, because requiring Chrome to run a select few Android apps on a PC and being limited to that is super meh as well as running Android in any virtual machine. I want a native Android desktop or for the runtime to be integrated into Ubuntu GNOME or SteamOS.

I really hope that somewhere there is an OB-GYN office with the slogan, "We'll do anything to get in your pants".

I've been watching Mister Rogers today and just noticed something: after he takes his sneakers off, when he's singing his goodbye song, he doesn't put his street shoes back on. He just walks out the door in his socks and sport coat.

There are a lot of things missing from the report of the scientific study, and from my perspective, I see it going both ways; people under stress have fussy stomachs (the article proposes the reverse: your gut flora affect your brain). But the study does show interesting correlations, and the comments section is fun.

Thanks to +Irreverent Monk​ for this in my stream.
 
A bit of a longer read but I definitely recommend. #microbiome 
Some researchers believe the microbiome plays a role in regulating how people think and feel.

Tzolkin time! I lost by only 4 points,which is enormously good for me. I always start with a good strategy, usually from a monument I want to build, get distracted by something else, and try to catch up with my strategy in the last quarter of the game.

+Clinton Coddington​, knowing the type of games you have, you would most likely dig it. It's probably one of my favorite games to lose at.

Some of the most difficult comedic material to explain to people who haven't seen it is a Far Side comic.

Thanks to +Luke DeGraw​ for this in my feed.
 
So I had an idea for those useless plastic thingies you get when you buy clothes... You know those price tags that are hooked into your clothes... After looking at them I thought, "why not use them for antennas for my Battletech miniatures?" They are easily cut (easier then metal) and glue really easy... The result is a flexible plastic antenna ready to paint... I like it better than the metal antennas... Which I would always break off by bumping them during the game or while I was storing the mech... What do you think?

Most likely, and then you have ice cream much faster!

When I was in the 8th grade I heard Weird Al for the first time and felt like I was home. Like someone was as weird and wacky as me. At that time, on our local radio station, after Rick Dee's and the weekly Top 40 (so you had to stay up really late to hear it, which I wasn't allowed) was the Dr. Demento show. Sometimes my friends would record them and let me listen. I heard lots of great songs that way; Dead Puppies, Fish Heads, Bulbous Bouffant, even the Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. And, of course, classic Weird Al, like My Bologna. During my 8th grade year, 95-96, that radio station went off the air and I never heard that radio show again. I saw a clip online last year of one broadcast with Tiny Tim in it. Last week I was watching an MST3K, a really terrible Canadian one, Zombie Nightmare. About 10 minutes into the movie, this really athletic guy gets hit by a car and dies and his mom is distraught and gets him turned into the zombie. While he's lying there clearly not getting medical attention, Tom Servo riffs/sings "Dead hunk in the middle of the road!" When he said that, a light went on, and I thought, that is a song I know. It's a parody of something. It wasn't until this morning that I remembered the word was SKUNK, and looked up the song, and remembered that I knew it from Dr Demento.

Yeah, my timing was definitely not great. 90s rap and what I think was either grunge or metal was probably not at its peak, as evidenced by that music video that scarred me for like 20 years. Ha. I still have no idea what song that was, but I bet I could find it.
