Gaming – without electrons

A friend has the motto “do more of what makes you happy”. In that vein this year I find myself playing loads of board games with people in Stockholm. Unfortunately I find I am not playing enough. I am part of a group that meets for 2-3 hours every 2 weeks. I have discovered that I have a gaming itch that needs to be scratched far more regularly!

I have been investing in games with strong solo player modes. Terraforming Mars is excellent in that way. But this evening it was Scythe. I picked it up a week ago and have been getting to terms with its very interesting mechanics.

The other thing I am discovering is that I want to make a few games myself. There is one or two in me. Perhaps they will see the light of day yet…

Swedish water sports

One thing I have been doing in 2017 is spending more time on the water. I have been out kayaking a bit and I really want to do a lot more. I like the freedom, the simplicity, and the self sufficient nature of it on the overnight trips.

The girls are a little young for it, but we have a local lake, with a canoe club, and a stock of canadian canoes. So down we went today. The girls acquited themselves well.

The problem now is that they are dangling club membership in front of me. Pay about €50 and never have to pay for rentals again. But I haven’t been a canoe club member before. Thats a line I am not sure I can go over…
