Even though I decided to stop the blog, I'm unsure of when to stop posting. It's Friday so I guess I'll continue for now. Auction Comics is coming along. I have a new version (11.2) to test. Only some minor changes to the buyers from last version. Hope to test it soon. Tempus Quest is … Continue reading It’s Friday
I've been giving this a lot of thought lately and I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't really make sense to keep this site up. It generally has pretty low traffic except when I write something about the contest which would make more sense being on the podcast website anyway. I was telling myself … Continue reading This Is The End
This week I was inspired by a post by Peter Hayward to make a random board game company name generator. My programming skills are not particularly advanced. But it was a fun project and I've since added some more features. It's a fun way to spend a few minutes and you might come up with … Continue reading Adjective Animal Games
I would like to write a book. But I’m not sure if I have the ability to commit to a writing project for the length of time needed to complete one. Also my writing style is very much just writing what I’m thinking and a quick clean up for spelling and grammar. I’m not particularly … Continue reading Not Writing a Book
You can only push through so much. Sometimes you need to stop and rest. No matter how many projects you have to get done. Take care of yourself first or you won't be able to do anything else. Hope everyone has a relaxing weekend.
In about 12 hours judging will end for round one of The Board Game Workshop Design Contest. We currently have 1,457 feedback forms submitted. Round one has been going great. The new software I found has helped manage things and make my job easier. In some ways I'm surprised that this contest functions at all. … Continue reading End of Round One
I’ve been working on Tempus Quest a lot over the past six months. It’s been a great learning experience for the tempus system. Seeing what works and what doesn’t. And learning different ways to work with the system. The first big change for Tempus Quest from the original Tempus Imperium was getting rid of the … Continue reading Tempus Futurum
The contest is going well. Today we had our 200th judge sign up. It's been a few weeks of having a couple judges leave and then getting a couple new ones. We were at 198 several times. But we finally managed to hit 200. I think 2 months is too long for round one judging. … Continue reading Contest Update
I designed a solo LARP. I’ve never LARPed before and my RPG experience isn’t nearly what my board game experience is. But I had an idea and wanted to put it together and share it. It’s very simple. The whole thing fits on a single page and folds up into a small 8 page booklet. … Continue reading Death: A Solo LARP
Posting late. I try to be good about always posting to this blog on Friday and always posting my podcast on every other Wednesday. For some reason that means I stay up late Tuesday and post the podcast early Wednesday unless something goes wrong. But for this blog it means I write something up late … Continue reading Where Did the Time Go?
