Being sick sucks....

So I've spent the last 6 days laid up with a rather wicked cold which is kinda new for me and the reason I haven't been posting.  I don't tend to get sick and when I do it usually only lasts a day or two.  But this one is a stinker.  Oh well, I'm slowly on the recovery.  But unfortunately it also means that in the last 6 days, the only games I played were a couple rounds of Tichu and Black Friday last night.  Not a good week.  But as I stayed home sick on Friday (my first sick day in over a decade, mind you), I spent the day reading up on the recent Gathering of Friends.

Turns out Alan Moon's latest invite-only 10 day game-a-thon happened right nearby in Niagara Falls, New York.  Man, how do I get invited to these things?!?!  Ah well, I think I need to invent a game or ten to get the VIP status necessary.  Still the updates at OG (here and here) have been interesting and they have mentioned a few new games coming out.  Airlines Europe, of course, sounds awesome as does Uluru, a funky little speed puzzle game that I must get my hands on.

Feeling a bit better now so I expect to force everyone around me into some heavy boardgaming action this week.


  1. Etisalat, the country's leading telecommunications operator, announced the launch of the UAE's first unlimited daily and 100 MB weekly data plans for new and existing Wasel prepaid mobile customers. The new plans, which will be available from Monday (Sept. 10), give more choice and control to mobile Prepaid Internet users.

    Racism and TV are as old as TV. Racism alone, of course, was invented with radio. But there was a good deal of time during which you'd never see 80s t shirts anything even remotely multicultural on TV the vast majority of weed shirts the time, and people thought they were being pretty progressive by watching Benson.
