No kids this weekend, except Eitan who will be in and out for lunch tomorrow (if that). I know many parents would kill for that, but divorced parents don't feel that way. Yeah, it's nice to have quiet, but if we had our druthers we would see the kids more, not less.
Is my last post with all the pictures causing any problems? Too large? Too many broken links? I tried to load it on a different browser and had some problems the first time (not the second), but I'm downloading to Israel, after all, which is always a few orders of magnitude slower.
I'm working on a post about scoring and winning, which I'll probably post to Gone Gaming next week. The two questions are:
- What makes a good score for a game? 0-0-1? 0-1-2? 3-4-7? 10-12-76? 45-163-306? 306-306-307? 4-19-10,0005?
- No matter what we score in a game, the end result is always 0-0-1 (or sometimes 0-1-1), i.e. winners and losers. Is there anything we can do about that?
Rick Thorniquist's video on the first day of Essen is very well done. He is really upping the quality and professionalism of his reporting.
This week's Vintage Gamer covers some board game books. I haven't heard it yet, but it's downloading.
Raph points to a MMORPG set in the world of Shakespeare. It's not built yet, but it's a great idea.
I found a blog devoted to Cosmic Encounter, and the official blog of Cosmic Encounter Online which is updated by Peter Olotka.
Oh. And do you want to play Puerto Rico Monopoly?
