Today is my birthday. I am old. I usually run 7 miles on my birthday but– man I gotta mow the lawn instead…
MOO is officially out today and I’m going to play a bit today despite the excellent weather. I recommend it. For CIV players it may be too simplistic, however.
We played THE CAPTAIN IS DEAD last night and it was fairly good. I do not like the cooperative games like Pandemic (especially Pandemic) where really it’s a SOLO game and the presence of all players but the most experienced is superfluous at best. However, coop games with hidden goals like Galactica and Dead of Winter are great games. The Captain is Dead falls into the Pandemic style, but it plays fast, has a TON of asymmetry with the characters you each play. I would actually play it again. What’s more, it doesn’t have any DVD or sound shit to go along with it, because that is fucking annoying.
Anyway, happy birthday to me. See some of you on SATURDAY for the drunken nerdery.
