We always go on a bit of a board game binge over the holidays. We played some holdovers from past years — Settlers of Catan, Seven Wonders. I got an awesome bamboo catanboard for Catan, that was a great gift. […]
We always get some board games over the holiday season and have some gamefests. Settlers, Ticket to Ride, Survive have been winners in past years. This year we tried 3: * “Seven Wonders”:http://www.amazon.com/Asmodee-SEV-EN01ASM-7-Wonders-Game/dp/B0043KJW5M/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1357360279&sr=1-1&keywords=seven+wonders.

And if you tracked my minutes of computer use during the week, I’m pretty sure the “game […]
* “Cutting the Cord on Cable”:http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203550304577138841278154700.html. Wish I could get there but live HD sports still keeps me stuck to cable/satellite provider. I’ve tried the streaming options and they are weak — poor selection of games/sources (I need ESPN/ABC channels […]
We always pick up a new board game at the holidays, in the past Settlers of Cataan and Ticket to Ride have been huge winners. This year it is “Survive”:http://www.amazon.com/Stronghold-Games-PSISG2002-Survive-Atlantis/dp/B004LEJCM8/ref=pd_sim_t_1 which is a great game — super easy to learn, […]

What stunning numbers. I don’t think “Skyrim”:http://content.usatoday.com/communities/gamehunters/post/2011/11/review-the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-a-magnificent-odyssey/1 will do the same but a huge week for online entertainment. There is clearly huge demand for great entertainment content, pretty much insatiable […]
I don’t need or want any of this stuff actually but am drawn to all of it… * “Car map light”:http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20100526/flexible-map-light/.

The eyeballing game. Angle bisecting and right angling are apparently my special skills. I pretty much suck at finding circle centers and making parallelograms tho.
Quite addictive. And the exchange of creatures online adds a great element. Recommended. Yeah the amazon reviewers are all going apeshit over the drm on the title, but it is fun.
