I'm a little overwhelmed with stuff to do. I am thinking of dropping out of rotation for a while, but I didn't want to spring it on someone else on short notice. So...

Do you have a favorite pickup and deliver game? I really liked this one, although I have only played it a time or two.

My family and I got to view the total solar eclipse a couple of weeks ago and it was a spectacular event. Have you witnessed any memorable or amazing astronomical, or geophysical events?

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

 N/A   Joking Hazard
 N/A   This Is Not a Test: Skull-Deep in the Dead NEW!
 9.6   Race for the Galaxy: Xeno Invasion x2

Played a test game of the This Is Not a Test scenario This Is Not a Test: Skull-Deep in the Dead as a 'tester' for the participation game I'll help run at a small convention later in the year. It went pretty well. The basic idea is that the players are holding off a horde of rad zombies and points are awarded to staying alive the longest, killing zeds and being the last player standing. No obvious problems were detected and we came up with a couple of ideas to refine our processes and add a bit more random and fun elements to the game.

In our test run one player elected to take the fight to the enemeny and couldn't hit the side of a barn with his machine pistol and was quickly swamped by enemies. Another player just ran and left the fighting to the rest of us (he was eventually cornered by a horde of rad zombies in the top floor of the building in which he hid) and I managed to take care of a few strays with my pistol until it jammed and then had a running battle against an ever-growing horde; a battle I eventually lost.

Other than that, played some Joking Hazard at lunch. Even after less than half a dozen plays I have kind of had enough of this game. Not that much to it other than the 'gross out' factor with making answers.

Also played a bit of Race for the Galaxy: Xeno Invasion with Mrs Fish.

So that was the last week of the school holidays, with all the chaos that entails, but we're through it now and some degree of normality can start to reassert itself. Unfortunately I only got to play one game last week, but on the positive side, it was a good one, and a first play of it with Miss B, who loved the experience. I've played Elder Sign a good few times, but this is the first play since I started logging plays on BGG, so it has been quite a while...

A bit more gaming lately, that was good. Most memorable was an afternoon spent with Bruss Brussco and his wife, who spent their honeymoon in Europe and used one day to visit me. Pretty cool for someone I had never met before, just on the internet because I liked his game. I love how gaming connects the world. In the upcoming weeks leading to the Essen fair, I expect more chances to try out new games. It's that time of the year. AVES fell a little short for me, maybe my expectations were just too high, though.

Just this. Purchased as a first game for the 4-year old nephew. O and I ended up playing it. No time to play anything else.

In other developments, we are now proud owners of one partially complete new kitchen and one mostly destroyed old kitchen (which is sitting in our dining room).

The week of 28th August to 3rd Sept.

Played a few games of Ólsen Ólsen with the kid. And then I met a friend of ours (from Germany) and her boyfriend (from USA) at my brother-in-law's house. And as she enjoys Five Crowns, we played it, despite it not being a favourite of mine.
