National Gaming Day


Many libraries across the world are celebrating National Gaming Day tomorrow Saturday, Nov. 13th.  Check out the link here to see if your local library is having any events.  There will be board games and video games galore, including many generously donated copies of the delightful Wits and Wagers thanks to North Star Games.

I gotta say I've got mixed feelings about this event.  Now here me out:  On the one hand, I'm glad that board games are becoming more mainstream and libraries are realizing how great they are for teaching tools, social interaction, and all-around fun.  On the other hand, the more popular hobby gaming gets, the more new games will be designed and released each year.  And I barely have time to play all the ones I own.  And I can't seem to stop collecting more, no matter hard I try.  Oh, sweet agony...

(Thanks to Luke at North Star Games for the tip)

  1. In 2013 she was ranked No. 1, and at the age of 31 she was the oldest female tennis player to be ranked No. 1 since computer rankings began in 1975.. However, this CGI esque photo is actually the city skyline of Dubai (which contains 22 skyscrapers that exceed 75 floors) jutting shirt in spanish up through some bachelorette party shirts fog. We imagine that the view you're seeing here can really revolutionize weather forecasting, seeing as how you can measure the altitude of cloud cover simply by leaning out the window. It doesn't even look like a good crop and paste job, look at her feet.
